James R. Snell, Jr., is a South Carolina Lawyer representing clients in Aiken South Carolina and all surrounding areas charged with criminal domestic violence (CDV) or felony criminal domestic violence (CDVHAN).

Individuals charged with criminal domestic violence anywhere in Aiken County face stiff penalties if they are convicted. Just because you or a loved one has been arrested though does not mean that a conviction is automatic. You have important right and options as to how your case will be resolved. This may be through either negotiation (such as a counseling and diversion program where your charge will ultimately be dismissed) or through a contested trial.

First time CDV offenders in Aiken are at risk of severe penalties including high fines and jail time. Penalties for CDV range from a maximum of 30 days for a 1st offense misdemeanor charged through up to ten years for a felony CDVHAN charge. Additionally those just arrested may face a no contact bond order preventing them from moving home or returning to their family.

In Aiken County CDV arrests may be made by the Aiken County Sheriff's Department or officers associated with the surrounding towns including Burnettown, Jackson, New Ellenton, North Augusta, Perry, Salley, and Wagener.
