BS is a boat captain and was charged with stealing an expensive piece from one boat and putting it on another. BS had several prior arrests and was not eligible for a withhold of adjudication on the new felony. BS would have lost his captain’s license if he pled and was convicted of the felony. We were able to convince the prosecutor’s supervisor to change the charge to a misdemeanor and that meant that BS could keep his captain’s license.
KA went to a gun range and tried out a few firearms. He liked one so much that he decided to purchase it. The background check revealed that he had been convicted of a crime in South Carolina 25 years ago. We were able to convince the prosecutor that KA did not know that he has been convicted and that he had not been in any trouble since. The prosecutor agreed to a very short probation sentence.

BB had three separate felony cases pending, two violations of probation and a new case, selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a convenience store. BB was set up by an undercover detective who recorded BB selling him drugs inside a 711. The detective was relying on information from a confidential informant. We filed a motion to disclose the identity of the informant and the motion was granted. The detectives and the prosecutor refused to tell us who the informant was. He was facing close to 7 years in prison at the bottom of the sentencing guidelines, but we were able to negotiate a plea of time served and BB went home a free man.
