Concurrent 10-year sentences on drug charges for S.C. man

Despite the best intentions of government and law enforcement, the criminal justice system often falls far short of the goal of rehabilitating those convicted of crimes. While recidivism rates in South Carolina reflect a downward trend over the past 10 years, some people continue to shuffle back and forth among prison, probation and jail. A 24-year-old man from South Carolina provides a sobering illustration of this pattern. Already with a long history of criminal charges dating back to at least 2012, the young man recently pleaded guilty to charges of trafficking cocaine and resisting law enforcement. A judge sentenced him to serve two concurrent 10-year sentences, one for each count. 

Verifying fraudulent intent

Popular media often portrays white collar crime as being the sophisticated (almost glamorous) actions of intellectual masterminds aimed as stealing millions from large corporations. In actuality, however, white collar crime can involve activities that most would classify as mundane. In fact, many come to us here at the Stirling & O'Connell law office completely shocked that others viewed their actions as being fraudulent. If you find yourself in the same situation, then you no doubt will want to know whether a financial loss or injury is all that is needed as proof of fraudulent activity.
