These Machines Can Put You in Jail. Don’t Trust Them.

Arrested for DUI? Call 843-884-4147 to speak to an attorney and discuss your legal defense.

Computer scientists found flaws in one of the most common machines used to test suspected drunk drivers and their findings raise questions about the reliability of the results that have been used to convict thousands across the U.S.

Alcohol breath tests, a linchpin of the criminal justice system, are often unreliable, a Times investigation found.

“Excessively high housing costs cause 32 percent of SC households, including over half of renters, to come up short in meeting their most basic needs (food, fuel, etc.),” the report said. “This imposes a cost on the state of $8.4 billion borne by public assistance, private charity, or personal deprivation.”

We’re a month into hurricane season!

Hurricane Barry made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane early Saturday afternoon along the northern Gulf Coast. Even though Barry weakened to Tropical Depression it remains dangerous.

It’s important to realize we’re only a month into hurricane season, so I thought I'd share some resources and information that would be helpful if a storm were to hit our community.

For instance, there’s a great checklist from the Red Cross that you can print out and use before, during, and after a storm (link in comments).

Also, below are a few helpful reminders of small things you can do that will make a big difference.

Have a supply kit ready to go. Restock or replace items in your kit as needed, like batteries, water, nonperishable food, medications, a first aid kit, flashlights, and a radio.

Stay informed about weather systems in your area.

Write up an Emergency Plan for your family’s unique needs and a list of emergency phone numbers (link in comments).

Make sure you have gas in your car, personal documents safe and accessible, and cash on hand.

After the storm, avoid driving, standing water, and downed power lines.

Hopefully, 2019 will be a slow year for storms, but just in case, I hope this is helpful.

Stay safe!

An experimental Charleston County court, created by a special Order of the S.C. Supreme Court (link posted in comments), is “the first of its kind in South Carolina” and seeks “to reduce the number of evictions by both making renters aware of their rights and by fostering more communication between them and their landlords.”

As an attorney, I have pursued justice on behalf of those who have been wronged.

As Councilman for District 3, I will continue to be a zealous advocate for innovative solutions, like this experimental housing court.

Know that I will continue to put our community members first and fight for common sense solutions to protect our residents, our neighborhoods, Charleston, and our future.

SC lawmaker wants restrictions on police using automatic license plate readers

“Instead of zeroing in on specific vehicles, the cameras — typically mounted on patrol cars or above roadways — collect information from every plate that crosses its path.”

Police can’t rummage through your curbside garbage without warrant, Oregon Supreme Court says

The majority opinion noted that even the U.S. Supreme Court has said Americans don’t have a reasonable expectation of privacy “in trash left for collection in an area accessible to the public.” But the U.S. Supreme Court also said individual states are free to impose “more stringent constraints on police” based on their own constitutions.

The Oregon Supreme Court says we all still retain a privacy interest in our trash after garbage trucks haul it away.
