How should I plead in Court to CDV?

How should I plead in Court to CDV?

In South Carolina you can be technically guilty of domestic violence even in cases where there was no physical harm suffered by the alleged victim. There are however numerous legal and factual defenses that may be available.

Because of the complexity of the law and the severe penalties for anyone convicted of CDV it is important that anyone charged with a domestic violence crime in South Carolina consult with an attorney before stepping foot in Court to face their charges.

There are three possible pleas that a defendant can enter to a CDV charge. They are guilty, no contest or "not guilty". There is no difference in the penalties that someone will face from pleading guilty vs. no contest. The only plea that can result in avoiding the penalties that will include a publically available criminal record is not guilty.
