Warrantless search bill becomes law in South Carolina

Warrantless search bill to become law; Sanford veto defeated

In a 74 to 37 vote, House lawmakers narrowly overrode Gov. Mark Sanford’s veto of the
warrant-less search bill Wednesday.

That means law enforcement will soon be able to search those on probation and parole
without a warrant.

Earlier this month, the Senate overrode the veto, meaning the bill can now become law.
The bill applies to the bodies and vehicles of those on probation and parole but not their
homes.
