  1. Best answer

    Consult with a criminal defense attorney, do not put any more details on a public forum like this.


  2. He needs an attorney as soon as possible. Many circuits have a no drop policy, which is what I assume you mean by "the state took over the case". Also, I agree that you should not be putting this much detail into your question.


  3. I get this question alot and I have 2 pending cases right now for this very same thing. In South Carolina when a person is charged with a CDV, they are charged on behalf of the state, not the individual. This is why the charge reads The State of South Carolina vs "the defendant"- In this case it is important that you hire a lawyer. If you should have additional questions or need answers to have the CDV can affect you and what to do next, please call our office at or see the link to our website.
