When Facing Repeat Violence Criminal Offenses
Criminal domestic violence charges are enhanceable offenses. That means that a prior conviction will increase the potential criminal penalties available for a new, or repeat domestic violence offense. Mandatory minimum sentencing, increased fines and additional damage to an individual’s reputation are concerns for alleged repeat offenders.

Repeat CDV charges and domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature are high-stakes cases. Mandatory minimum sentencing is a vital concern. While the criminal court may order that an individual have no contact with an alleged victim, the victim of CDV offenses are often referred to family court for an order for protection hearing. The South Carolina Protection From Domestic Abuse Act authorizes the family court to issue restraining order, which may include provisions to address alimony, support and child visitation.
