AN ACT TO AMEND ACT 360 OF 1980, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE PRETRIAL INTERVENTION PROGRAM, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT PERSONS CONVICTED OF FISH, GAME, WILDLIFE, OR COMMERCIAL FISHERY VIOLATIONS MAY NOT BE CONSIDERED FOR INTERVENTION.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Person may be considered for intervention
SECTION 1. Section 6 of Act 360 of 1980, as last amended by Act 421 of 1982, is further amended to read:
"Section 6. A person may not be considered for intervention if he has previously been accepted into an intervention program nor may intervention be considered for those individuals charged with burglary, arson, kidnapping, blackmail, driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs, any traffic-related offense which is punishable only by fine or loss of points, or any fish, game, wildlife, or commercial fishery related offense which is punishable by a fine or loss of points, or any crime of violence including, but not limited to murder, voluntary manslaughter, assault and battery with intent to kill, criminal sexual assault, or armed robbery. This section does not apply if the solicitor determines the elements of the crime do not fit the charge."
