Police can usually access digital data without probable cause

Online privacy is a hot-button issue in South Carolina and around the country, and technology companies have been dragged over the coals by the media when they have sold confidential information to unscrupulous third parties or allowed malicious hackers to gain access to it. However, the ease with which law enforcement agencies can obtain personal information from social media companies and online service providers has prompted little in the way of outrage.

Can a federal drug conviction impact financial aid eligibility?

South Carolina residents facing federal drug charges can potentially face a wide range of penalties, should those charges ultimately lead to convictions. Some of those penalties can have far-reaching effects on their personal and professional lives. If you are among those facing a federal drug charge and you are also a current recipient of financial aid, it is critical that you understand how a federal drug conviction could affect you.

Juries in South Carolina and around the country tend to find eyewitness testimony extremely persuasive, and this is especially true when witnesses are able to identify criminal defendants with confidence. However, the way that police departments conduct suspect lineups and the inner workings of the human brain can sometimes make witnesses seem far more confident in court than they were when they made the initial identification.
