South Carolina Criminal Domestic Violence Laws

South Carolina CDV Law has undergone many changes since the original version was codified in 1984. Because the law is entirely statutory, meaning it did not exist at common law like other criminal offenses, a careful review of the statute is necessary for an understanding of the law. What follows is a listing to the entire text of the law as it exists in 2012, along with commentary provided by the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC.

  • 16-25-10 - Household Members Defined
  • 16-25-20 - Acts prohibited, penalties; CDV conviction in another state as prior offense
  • 16-25-70 - Warrantless arrest or search; admissibility of evidence
