Today, S.C. senators will consider if selling drugs should make you eligible for a manslaughter charge.
The Senate Judiciary Committee will discuss S.83 on Tuesday. If the bill becomes law, someone who sells or delivers a controlled substance that causes the death of the user could face a charge of involuntary manslaughter and a potential 15-year prison sentence.
