Legal Question in Criminal Law in South Carolina

felony charge

our local DA announced in the newspaper that he was charging a man with Felony DUI-I am not sure what that means-if and when he goes to the grand jury, won't that translate into manslaughter, murder, etc? Isn't Felony DUI a broad term, but one that will translate into murder, manslaughter, etc?

Re: felony charge

Felony DUI is basically a DUI where there was a serious injury or death. It is not manslaughter, although it could be regarded as being similar to it. Robert Johnston 1-843-828-1137 [email protected]
