ABC Unit

South Carolina law divides criminal offenses into classes based on the maximum sentence possible for each offense. Our “ABC” prosecutors handle cases involving one or more class A, B, or C felony offenses, which are offenses carrying more than 10 years in prison. Offenses falling into these classifications are typically violent offenses involving the use of weapons or serious risk of injury to the victims. Some property crimes, such as nighttime burglaries, also fall in this category due to the inherent risk of danger associated with the offenses. ABC cases are prosecuted by solicitors with proven track records of quality work in the criminal justice system.
