My question involves criminal law for the state of: South Carolina
I am hoping you can answer a question I have; my 26 yr. old son is currently on the run with his girlfriend. Two days ago his girlfriend stole a money bag containing $1,842.00 and my son was with her. It is on video....
At the age of 17 he was arrested for multiple offenses and the South Carolina courts merged them into one plea of 15 years. He served 9 1/2 years and was released six months ago.
This is extremely painful for me and I wanted to know what he is facing when he is apprehended. I know on the inmate website the prior to his release they had B&E in the 2nd listed, is this Theft or Grand Larceny? What kind of time can I expect he will get for this? I have to mentally prepare myself. Ten years ago it nearly killed me.
I told the judge ten years ago that I thought he had a serious mental disorder of some kind, perhaps anti-social behavior and he should be evaluated but they never did.
Any information would be appreciated.
