I believe that it is time for judges to be held accountable for their decisions in sex crimes. Not remembering a case???...this is scary. It is sad to hear of such injustice to our children and this nation.

It was the offendors choice to do this therefore they should receive the highest bond and the highest jail time and complete every day.

Who gives the children their dignity and emotional stability back..not the laws of this state. Therefore, the laws should have harsher penalties.
Too many offendors are repeat offendors.
The judges/criminal justice system puts the offendors back on the streets to destroy another children's lives.

Will someone make new laws...??...the judges will need them.

When will South Carolina understand that abuse is abuse! On a child is the worst! Let's do this... instead of holding a guy selling a dime bag to his friend on a $100,000 bond let's hold sex predators on that kind of bond. Maybe these sickos will learn that they can not take advantage of the system. Same with domestic violence criminals.

Now do something about this:
"The bail proceedings schedule shall be in compliance with the provisions of the Order of the Chief Justice dated November 28, 2000...insuring that cash bonds only and excessive bonds are not being required"
