James R. Snell, Jr., is a criminal defense attorney representing clients in Orangeburg South Carolina and all surrounding areas who have been arrested for criminal domestic violence (CDV) and felony criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature (CDVHAN).
Criminal Domestic Violence is treated differently in Orangeburg than many other types of criminal offenses. There may be no contact bond orders put into place that prevent you from returning home or having contact with your family. The Orangeburg County Family Court may issues a hearing related to an
Order for Protection. Individuals convicted of
felony CDVHAN face stiff penalties. Even individuals with no prior arrest record are at risk for a jail sentence.
As a CDV Defense Attorney James Snell knows the available options available to those who have been charged with domestic violence. No matter what the circumstances are of your arrest you have rights, and the simple fact you were arrested does not mean that you will be automatically convicted.
In Orangeburg CDV arrests may be made by the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Department, or officers associated with the surrounding towns including Bowman, Branchville, Elloree, Eutawville, Holly Hill, North, Norway, Rowesville, Santee, Springfield, or Vance.

This Court is scheduled to meet bi-weekly and may meet at other times for contested trials. Cases brought by the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Department are referred to this Court.
