Domestic Violence Defined
Aiken County authorities jailed two people in the last 24 hours for criminal domestic violence.
Hayward Hancock, 66, of Aiken (top) and Crystal Smith, 30, of Aiken (bottom) were each charged with the misdemeanor offense in separate incidents.
In case you were wondering, criminal domestic violence is defined in South Carolina as "causing physical harm or injury to a person's own household member, or offering or attempting to cause physical harm or injury to a person's own household member with apparent present ability under circumstances reasonably creating fear or imminent peril."
