Inmate Search in South Carolina - The Ultimate Guide 2023

About South Carolina State

South Carolina was named after the British King Charles, the first and was the eighth state to ratify the Constitution. It was also the first state to attempt to leave the Union when the Civil War broke out. It is the 23rd most-populous state in the Union. 

The state is subject to earthquakes and gets roughly 15 a year. The winters tend to be warm in the state, but the spring and fall tend to get a lot of rain. It is also fairly often the victim of tropical hurricanes. Still, the rich farmland in the state has made it a place that for generations people have flocked to.

South Carolina Inmate Search

Step 1: Head over to the South Carolina inmate search page. Here, you will get a pretty plain page, but it is one that can work for you.

Step 2: You are now given two options for your search. You can search by the inmates ID number if you have it. Most people doing inmate searches probably don’t. That means you’ll have to search by first and last name. Luckily, South Carolina also gives you the option to search “phonetically”. That means if you don’t know how their last name is spelled, you can sound it out.

Step 3: You will now be given a list of inmates whose last names match the last name you put in (or last names the phonetically match your search if you went for that option). Scan through the list to find the inmate you are looking for.

Step 4: Double click on the name that seems to match the inmate you are searching for. This should bring up their full file in PDF form, which can be downloaded and seen on screen or printed out on paper. This document includes a mugshot of the inmate and where they are serving their sentence. You will also find out when and if they are eligible for parole and probation. You will also get a list of the offenses.

You can also look up for sex offenders in your region. Simply click on the link and then agree to their terms of use, then use the CAPTCHA feature. These terms of use in general make you promise that you will not use the data you are given to stalk or harass the person on the sex offenders list. 

You can select to search by geographic radius or by the offender’s name. Their mugshots are available so that helps identify the inmate you are looking for.

South Carolina does not have a single space where you can search through their most wanted fugitives, but you can look at the most wanted offenders who are parole or probation. There’s no search feature, but a list with mug shots and lots of information is provided.
