A question that for whatever reason keeps popping up in my practice is whether or not someone can be charged as a domestic violence repeat offender if the alleged victims in their case are different.
Some defendants will believe that if a new girlfriend or wife (or boyfriend or husband) is the alleged victim of a new CDV charge then they should only be prosecuted as a first offense.
The law in South Carolina does not make any distinction between who the alleged victims were in a domestic violence case. If you have a prior CDV conviction within ten years it doesn't make any difference who the alleged victim was; you will face an enhanced level of offense.
