Domestic Violence

Any dispute among household members can result in a domestic disturbance call. Members of law enforcement are under great pressure to make an arrest when responding to a domestic abuse call. If police find a mark on somebody when responding to a domestic abuse call, someone will likely go to jail. Members of law enforcement are under great pressure to make an arrest in these types of situations — even without physical contact if there is evidence of a physical threat. As a result, criminal domestic violence is a common charge in South Carolina.
