South Carolina Criminal Defense Blog

I’m Scott Johnson and welcome to the South Carolina Criminal Defense Blog (SCCDB). This blog began as a way for me to vent my frustrations at being arrested for a violent crime charge when I was innocent.

Fortunately, through my blogging efforts and in cooperating with South Carolina law enforcement, I was cleared of all charges after DNA evidence clearly proved my innocence. Today, my South Carolina Criminal Defense Blog has become much more.

Through providing more details about my own exoneration, and through the stories of others in similar situations, SCCDB strives to be a legal resource for those struggling with legal issues across the U.S.

Have You Been Wrongfully Accused?

If you have been arrested for a crime you haven’t committed, you’ll likely be looking for an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you in court. However, finding an attorney can be a struggle, especially when you’re dealing with the aftermath of your arrest and pending charges.

With this in mind, I have included a criminal defense lawyer directory on my blog which you can utilize to find my top-rated attorney choices in your area.  

In the event that you need legal help for another reason, you can also use the directory to search for a lawyer based on the area of law you need help in. Some other types of law issues we cover might include the following:

  • Child custody and support
  • Bankruptcy and credit repair
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Workers compensation
  • Divorce
  • Motor vehicle wrecks
  • Employment law
  • Third-party reproduction
  • Tax law

You can also review my blog archive to find guest posts regarding these topics and how they might apply to the legal issue you are dealing with.

How SCCDB Can Help

South Carolina Criminal Defense Blog may have started off as a way to chronicle my experience with being wrongfully accused, but I’ve since expanded to include information regarding not only criminal law in the state of South Carolina, but also other areas of law across the entire country.

You can check out the resources button above to search for legal tips, tricks, possible defenses, criminal penalties, and a plethora of information about what to expect in various legal situations as a whole.

If you are interested in learning more about a law-related matter not yet discussed here, you can check back every week, as I update SCCDB each week with a featured legal “story time” blog post, and other interesting legal information from across the country that I think could be useful to you, my readers.
