Attorney General Alan Wilson's response to S.C. Supreme Court's opinion on State v. Jeroid Price

(COLUMBIA, S.C.) - After hearing oral arguments in April, the South Carolina Supreme Court today released its opinion on its decision to remand Jeroid Price back to the South Carolina Department of Corrections. See below for Attorney General Alan Wilson's full statement: 

“We agree with the Court’s majority decision and appreciate it holding the state actors and lower court accountable for not following the law. Now that we have the full opinion, we will continue our review of the early releases from previous years. This was an unusual case, but the Court’s urgency to hear our original request and its ultimate decision proves no one is above the law in South Carolina.”
