Can a public defender get a DUS 3rd lowered to a second offense in south carolina?

Not exactly. If you already have 2 DUS convictions then if you are convicted a 3rd time, that will be your 3rd conviction. Jail time is mandatory in this case. You can challenge the validity of your DUS charge in court and your defender will guide you on this. If you are found not guilty then the charge will go away and you'll still only have 2 convictions. If you choose to plead then the defender can attempt to get your sentenced reduced, but you can't turn a 3rd conviction into a 2nd. Doesn't work that way. Didn't you learn that you have to drive with a license after the first two convictions? I mean seriously.

No...no one can get a 3rd reduced to 2nd. The goal is to get the 3rd dropped to a lesser included offense.

uh..anything is possible, I'd bet against it.
