Members of the Bench and Bar have relied on The Criminal Law of South Carolina as their essential guide on criminal law since the publication of the first edition in 1982. Often cited in the reported decisions of the Supreme Court of South Carolina and the South Carolina Court of Appeals, it has become a standard reference.
There have been significant changes in the criminal law as a result of the Omnibus Crime Reduction and Sentencing Act of 2010, all of which are reflected in the Sixth Edition as well as other statutory changes since 2007. Changes in the criminal law reported in judicial opinions are current through December 31, 2012. With more than 875 pages, the new edition includes an enlarged table of contents, a summary of contents, a thorough index, and comprehensive tables of cases and statutes. New for the first time ever, the Sixth Edition is accompanied by a CD containing the full book text in a searchable format. This will enable the user to search a large amount of information and quickly find the answer to a criminal law question saving valuable time and money.
Whether you prosecute or defend in General Sessions Court, The Criminal Law of South Carolina, should be your constant companion as you navigate through the complexities of criminal law in South Carolina.
