ILLEGALLY JAILED! Two South Carolina Towns “Forgot” about your Right to Counsel

“1. The Municipalities and their agents and employees shall not deprive Indigent people
facing prosecution in their Municipal Courts of the right to counsel. As such, no Indigent
person shall be charged with criminal, non-criminal traffic, or ordinance violations that
carry the possibility of a Sentence of Incarceration without being advised of their right to
counsel and provided with such Counsel unless the individual defendant knowingly,
voluntarily, and intelligently waives such right.”

“2. It is contrary to the principles of due process and equal treatment enshrined in the
Constitution of South Carolina and the U.S. Constitution to deprive people of their
constitutional rights simply because they are indigent.”
