Kershaw County’s misdemeanor DUI conviction rate may not be the lowest in either the 5th or 13th judicial circuits, but the South Carolina chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) says the county is contributing to what it calls to a low conviction rate across the state. MADD recently released “A Lack of Conviction,” a report stemming from its court monitoring efforts in the 5th and 13th judicial circuits. According to a MADD press release, the study provides specific data on the outcome of DUI cases and highlights several problematic issues involved with enforcing and prosecuting DUIs in South Carolina.
