Charleston attorney pleads guilty to DUI, pays fine on drug charge

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A prominent Charleston-area attorney charged with drinking and driving has pleaded guilty.

According to Mark Peper, he pleaded guilty to DUI, paid a fine, and two other charges were dismissed.

Charleston County deputies pulled Peper over for speeding on Jan. 2.

Peper says accepting the plea gives him the ability to take responsibility and focus on personal matters that require his immediate attention.

He served as Live 5's legal analyst during trial coverage of former North Charleston police officer Michael Slager last month.
