On June 25, 2019 the South Carolina General Assembly over-road the Governor's veto expanding the types of charges that are eligible for a Conditional Discharge. Now in addition to minor drug offenses, Public Disorderly Conduct is eligible for a Conditional Discharge.
A Conditional Discharge is a option for people that have a limited criminal record and would like to have the opportunity to have a charge ultimately dismissed if they complete the terms of the program. Some standard terms include remaining clean from drug and alcohol, completing community service, and having no further contact with law enforcement during the term of the conditional discharge.
