Lake Wateree is a 19 square mile reservoir touching Kershaw, Fairfield, and Lancaster counties, and is known as one of South Carolina’s oldest man-made lakes. Its name, like that of the river, recalls the now-extinct Wateree Native Americans, who lived in the area until dispossessed by European settlers. The Lake Wateree area includes Lake Wateree State Park, a bird refuge, and the Shaw Air Force Base Recreation center. With 242 miles of shoreline, there is ample fishing and fun to be had on or around the water. This fun often involves drinking alcohol.
As more information has become apparent about the dangers of drinking and driving, DUI charges have become more frequent and severe. Despite many adults including alcohol consumption into their lives and using it in controlled and safe amounts, this information is not always taken into account when you are facing a DUI charge, as fear mongering has led the courts to enforce harsh and seemingly unfair penalties for even a first offense. You may have your license temporarily revoked, pay a steep fine, and you may even face jail time. A DUI charge can seriously impact your life, but with the help of a skilled attorney, you can avoid some of the worst of these punishments.
