Although it is a rural county, Saluda still charges people with major offenses. We’ve handled numerous felony cases in this area including burglary, armed robbery, drug trafficking, and criminal sexual conduct with a minor. These offenses are referred to General Sessions, which is held in the main county courthouse.

The Magistrate Court (which is located next to the courthouse), handles misdemeanor arrests made by the Sheriff’s Department, Highway Patrol and Department of Natural Resources. Typical offenses including DUI, domestic violence and drug possession.

The Municipal Court hears the same type of cases as in the Magistrate Court, but arrests are made by the Town of Saluda Police Department only.

Saluda DUI Defense

Highway Patrol and other law enforcement agencies make a lot of DUI arrests in and around Saluda. There are numerous legal options and strategies that can help anyone charged with DUI, regardless of the circumstances of the arrest.

If you’ve received a DUI in Saluda your first step should be to contact our office. If your license was taken by the office we can file paperwork with the Office of Motor Vehicles in Columbia, South Carolina, right away to help you restore your driving privileges.

DUI defenses fall into several specific categories. Each area has to be carefully assessed to determine what the best options are for a specific case. This includes the officer’s compliance with the law on DUI arrest procedures, breath test process and calculations (the machine has a lot more data than the single page sheet law enforcement initially provides), field sobriety tests (both how the officer instructed them as well as what the true performance was), and all other evidence for or against the officer’s assumption of impairment.

By reaching out to us, you can receive a free case evaluation and learn more about your best options for fighting your criminal charges. Contact us today!
