Felony Charges

Felony charges are the most serious category of criminal charge in South Carolina, and a conviction generally means spending at least one year in prison. Felony charges range from Class A to Class F, and they break down in the following ways:

Exempt and Non-Specified Felony Charges

In South Carolina, there are also charges that don’t fall into any of these groups, which are identified as either exempt or non-specified. An example of an exempt felony is murder, which can lead to a life sentence. The only charge that rises to the level of a death sentence in the state is aggravated murder.

Non-specified felony charges, on the other hand, don’t impose penalty guidelines other than identifying the crimes involved as felonies. The default sentence for these charges ranges from 3 months to 10 years behind bars.
