My question involves criminal law for the state of: South Carolina
My step-son was recently arrested and charged with 3rd degree burglary. He is of legal age.
My question is this: if the address on the arrest warrant is stated as a completely different address than where he was arrested, can that be a basis for dismissal? He was arrested while still on the property he did not have permission to enter. The address listed on the arrest warrant is that of the land owner.
If not, how can someone be charged with a crime at an address they have never seen before? I have full documentation regarding the two properties in question, without breaking the law.
The physical difference between the listed address on the warrant vs where he was actually arrested is approximately 1.6mi away. The two properties are completely separate, having two separate property tax bills making them not the same property.
