Where does the law come from? South Carolina's legal history spans back to the colonial period, well before the United States of America was formed. Our legal tradition began from English law. Common law is the tradition of law based on court decisions rather than acts of legislature. Our common law tradition still exists and many of these laws have been adopted by the South Carolina General Assembly. When the General Assembly passes laws, they are called statutory laws , because they are passed as statutes. Both the federal government and the South Carolina government have the power to enact statutes. The structure and power of the federal and state governments were created in their constitutions .
What if I didn't know what I did was illegal? Even if you didn't know what you did was illegal, you are still responsible for your actions. When a law is passed by the legislature and signed by the governor or U.S. president, it becomes effective. When a law becomes effective, you are presumed to have knowledge of that law. Ignorance is not an excuse to break the law. This should encourage citizens to learn whether or not something is against the law.
What should I do if I am arrested? Be respectful and cooperate with the arresting officer. Make sure that the officer explains why you are being arrested and what your rights are. You may want to speak with a lawyer before answering questions by the police in order to better understand your rights. If you are under 17, you are allowed to speak with a parent or guardian and are allowed to have them present during questioning. S.C. Code Section 17-13-50, Miranda v. Arizona , 384 U.S. 436 (1966)
What if I resist arrest ? Resisting arrest is a crime. Even if you believe you are innocent of the crime for which you were arrested, you should never resist arrest. If you assault, beat or wound a police officer, it is a felony offense. Using or threatening to use a deadly
weapon while resisting arrest is an even more serious felony offense. Penalty: Misdemeanor : fined between $500 and $1000 and/or up to one year in jail Felony : fined between $1000 and $10,000 and/or up to 10 years in jail S.C. Code Sections 16-9-320 and 16-3-625
What does felony mean? A felony is a very serious criminal offense. The penalty for most felonies include at least one year in jail. Being convicted of a felony can seriously affect your outlook for future opportunities. For example, in order to qualify for or maintain a LIFE scholarship, you cannot have a felony conviction. For nearly all job applications, you must disclose whether you have been convicted of a felony – many companies will not hire a convicted felon. Also, when applying for admission to college or graduate school, you must also disclose whether you have been convicted of a felony, which can greatly reduce your chances for admission to many programs of study.
What does misdemeanor mean? A misdemeanor is less serious than a felony, but can still lead to jail time, fines and other penalties. Often, multiple or subsequent misdemeanor charges will become felonies.
What does aiding and abetting mean? " Aiding and abetting " occurs when a person who doesn't actually commit a crime helps or encourages another person to commit a crime. In South Carolina, an "aider and abettor" is guilty of the same crime as the primary wrongdoer. S.C. Code Section 16-1-40; State v. Leonard , 355 S.E. 2d 270 (SC, 1987)
Do I really have a permanent record ? Even before you are considered an adult, you have a juvenile record that keeps track of your delinquencies. If you are taken into custody and go to court, the judge will consider whether or not you have a juvenile record when determining
your punishment. Your juvenile record can be used against you as an adult if the judge thinks it is important.
At what age would I go to court as an adult ? In South Carolina, the family court handles cases for anyone under 17. If the family court finds you guilty of an offense, it can place you in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice until you are 21 years old. However, if you are arrested for a more serious or violent crime, the judge will transfer you to circuit court to be “tried as an adult,” even if you are less than 17 years old.
What are deadly weapons? A deadly weapon is any firearm or other item that is designed for the purpose of causing death. Also, if a weapon is not designed to be deadly but the manner by which it is used would cause death, it is considered a deadly weapon.

You cannot set off fireworks within 600 feet of a school, hospital or church, or within 75 feet of a fireworks store or stand. Additionally, it is illegal to fire fireworks from or at any car or near a gas station.
Fireworks are not allowed to be sold in all cities and counties. Also, some cities have their own laws affecting where fireworks may be set off, if at all. Be sure to know local laws where you live before playing with fireworks. S.C. Code Sections 23-35-10 to 23-35-170

Penalties imposed by the courts for breaking drug laws are very severe, ranging from probation or driver's license suspension to long prison terms and heavy fines. South Carolina outlaws the possession, consumption and distribution of illegal drugs. South Carolina and federal laws classify drugs based on their dangerous effects, potential for abuse and potential for addiction, as well any accepted medical (non-recreational) benefits they provide. The legal classifications of "controlled substances" generally determine the severity of the penalty for breaking the drug laws. For additional information on the dangers of drugs and drug abuse visit the Services' online clearinghouse.
What are controlled substances ? A controlled substance is any type of drug whose possession, distribution, use and sale is regulated by law, including narcotics, stimulants or hallucinogens.
Is it illegal to share prescription drugs with others? Not all controlled substances are illegal in South Carolina. However, depending on their classifications, many drugs are subject to strict rules in their possession and use. South Carolina law states, “It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly or intentionally to possess a controlled substance unless the substance was obtained directly from, or pursuant to a valid prescription . . . .” It is illegal to give or sell any prescription drug (such as Prozac, Zoloft, Zyrtec, Ritalin, Adderall, codeine, etc.) to a friend or classmate.

You can get a provisional license if you are 15 and have had a beginner's permit for 90 days. You must have proof of school attendance and pass a driver's education class and a road test to qualify for a provisional license. A provisional license allows you to drive during daylight hours unaccompanied, but at night, a 21 year old with at least one year of driving experience must ride in the front passenger seat (must be a parent after midnight).

What are driver's license points? A point system is used as a driving record to keep track of the number and severity of traffic offenses you have committed. If you reach a certain number of points, your driver's license is suspended for a certain period of time. Over time, the number of points associated with prior violations diminishes, increasing the number of total points accumulated allowable over an extended period of time. The length of suspensions for accumulated excessive points is as follows:
(1) 12 to 15 points--three months' suspension;
(2) 16 or 17 points--four months' suspension;
(3) 18 or 19 points--five months' suspension;
(4) 20 points and over--six months' suspension.
S.C. Code Sections 56-1-720, 56-1-740, 56-1-770
In addition to its legal effects on driving eligibility, a driver's insurance company uses the point system to determine the risk of insuring that driver. Thus, the more points a driver has on his or her record, the more that driver must pay for insurance. Automobile insurance can be very expensive, and South Carolina requires all motorists to carry liability insurance. This ensures that, in the event of a wreck, the driver at fault is at least able to pay for the damages he or she inflicts on others.

Where police officers have probable cause to search an entire vehicle, they may conduct a warrantless search of every part of the vehicle and its contents, including all containers and packages that may conceal the object of the search. Also, the search of the passenger compartment of an automobile (trunk excluded) is permissible if the police officer possesses a reasonable belief ("probable cause" is not required) that the suspect is dangerous and the suspect may gain immediate control of weapons.

If you are suspended, your principal will write a letter to your parents telling them why you were suspended. Also, your parents and principal will set up a conference to discuss the suspension. S.C.
