Municipal and Magistrates Courts

Municipal and Magistrates Courts in the Charleston, South Carolina area handle misdemeanor charges that took place in the county. Misdemeanors carry a potential jail term of up to 1 year while many are capped at 30 days and a fine. Sometimes you are just issued a ticket and are given a court date.

BE CAREFUL; JUST PAYING THE TICKET IN MANY CASES IS EQUIVALENT TO PLEADING GUILTY AND CAN HAVE MAJOR CONSEQUENCES.

Consult The Law Offices of Thomas A. Smith or another attorney before just paying a ticket.  A guilty plea on your record for a minor offense now may not seem like a big deal at the time, but it can have drastic consequences in the future.  Many misdemeanor offenses can be adverse to you if you are ever charged with a future crime.  These minor offenses can be used against you in court or in other ways.  Also they can lead to the suspension of your driving privileges in South Carolina.  Examples include :

  • Dishonored Check

  • False ID

  • Driving Under Suspension (DUS)

  • Driving Under the Influence or While Impaired (DUI, DWI)

  • Failure to stop for Blue Lights

  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident

FELONY CRIMES

Felony Crimes are much more serious and can have a major impact on your life, your future and your rights, even after jail time has been served if you were to be found guilty.  The Law Offices of Thomas A. Smith is ready to fight zealously on your behalf to protect your rights and protect your future.  If you have been charged with a FELONY crime, contact me or another attorney immediately.
