North Charleston Woman Arrested For Pointing A Firearm Given Personal Recognizance Bond

On the morning of March 4, 27-year-old Brittney Dandra Smalls was booked into the Al Cannon Detention Center on a single count of Pointing and Presenting Firearms at a Person.

Ms. Smalls was granted $20,000 personal recognizance bond by lenient Magistrate Judge Priscilla Baldwin of the Centralized Bond Hearing Court on Leeds Avenue. She was released the following day after an appearance at Bond Court earlier that morning.

Smalls’ Bond and Charge Information

Ms. Smalls’ booking stems from an arrest warrant dated in late 2018. Her next court appearance is scheduled May 3 at 2:00 PM.

According to South Carolina Code 16-23-410, “A person who violates the provisions of this section is guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, must be fined in the discretion of the court or imprisoned not more than five years. This section must not be construed to abridge the right of self-defense or to apply to theatricals or like performances.”

Charleston Jail Watch acknowledges the pending status of Ms. Smalls’ case. We seek only to inform our readers of an inherent disregard for the implications of providing free release without any reparation — and the precedent that will follow.
