The South Carolina Freedom of Information Act found in section 30-4-30(d)(3) states that a law enforcement agent must make available for public inspection documents identifying persons confined in any jail, detention center, or prison for the previous three months. We have established this website as a method to comply with this law. It is not intended to be a source of embarrassment to anyone, but is rather intended to comply with current public record laws.
All information is removed from this website after 90 days from the date the person is released from custody or when an expungement of those records is ordered prior to the 90 days. The records are still available unless expunged by normal Freedom of Information Act guidelines.
All person arrested are presumed innocent until adjudicated otherwise by a court of proper jurisdiction.
Additional records may be requested through the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office located at 550 Wilson Road, Newberry, SC 29108, or by using the Freedom Of Information Act Request found on this site.
Requests must be done in writing and a reasonable fee is charged for the research and copying associated with each search.
