Exposing the criminal element for 3 years

Terrance Singleton


Terrance Singleton is our first contestant for Father of the Year 2015. We already have two contestants for Mother of the Year (here and here). It seems he was busy trafficking cocaine and distributing marijuana Saturday when he was stopped by police. Singleton fled the stop with his two children in the car. When he was finally rounded up, officers located two ounces of cocaine and 3 ounces of marijuana concealed in a baby formula can.

Singleton, of 2900 N. Oakridge Circle, was charged with PWID Marijuana, Trafficking Cocaine, Reckless Driving and two counts of Unlawful Conduct Toward a Child. His total bond on those charges was set at $160,445.

We know regular readers will not be shocked to discover Singleton was free on bond on drug charges when he was arrested Saturday.

In February of 2013 Singleton was charged with Distribution of Cocaine. He was freed on a $20,000 bond. That charge is still pending.

While free on the bond from the February 2013 charge, Singleton was arrested again on September 11th, 2013. He was charged with Possession of Cocaine and Possession of Meth/Crack. He was again released, this time on a total bond of $20,000. These charges are still pending.

Sixteen days later, on September 27th, Singleton was arrested again and charged with Possession of Cocaine. He was given another $20,000 bond and released. This charge is still pending.

The 9th Circuit Solicitor tried to have the bond on the cocaine distribution charge revoked in February of 2014, but a judge denied that request.

So, Singleton was free on bonds totaling $60,000 when he fled police with his two kids in the car this past Saturday. Let’s look at the remainder of his criminal history.

2007 Charges:

Possession of Ecstasy (15 + units) - Reduced to basic Possession of Ecstasy by the 9th Circuit Solicitor. Sentenced by Judge R. Markley Dennis to 30 days.

Unlawful Possession of a Pistol - Plead guilty. Sentenced t0 1 year, suspended in favor of 18 months of probation.

Unlawful Possession of a Pistol by a Person Under 21 - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.

Three months after being sentenced to probation on the gun charge, Singleton was arrested again and charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol. He plead guilty in December of 2008 and was sentenced to 1 year by Judge Roger Young. Given the fact that Singleton served five months in jail before pleading guilty, this was basically a sentence of “time served”.

To the credit of Probation and Parole (something they haven’t been getting much of lately), Singleton was charged with a probation violation for the above arrest. Judge Young revoked his probation in January of 2009.

Want to be it won’t be long before Singleton gets a judge to reduce his bond and he’s out slinging dope again?


Based on the charges in this analysis and the one we posted this morning, our new 9th Circuit gun charge tally is:


59 charges     23 dismissed     11 guilty pleas     25 pending




  1. He really needs to give up on being a career criminal. He’s not very good at it. He keeps getting caught.

  2. The guy is a drug dealer and no matter how many times you arrest him and slap his wrists his trade will continue.

    • People wonder why Cops many times get jaded? Its because the “Law”, which they believe in, has now become just a “Suggestion”, thanks to slow Prosecutions and no or very minimal sentencing.

      Cops are many times risking their lives for the community they serve and their families to be safer, and this is what they get.

      But if a Cop gets frustrated arresting one of these clowns for the 60th time and puts handcuffs on too tight, he is investigated, put on Youtube, suspended, charged, sentenced and “they all do it”.

      I’m not missing it, anymore. The system is now insane and broken.

  3. Which judge denied revoking his bond in February 2014? I can’t understand these judges’ thinking.

    • That information was not listed in the record. They have a habit in Charleston County of not listing judges or solicitors.

  4. Career criminals will be just that. We need more judges that care about their jobs. Granted we pay the price for these urchents who would rather steal, kill and rob their own people, but they need to either be placed in prison or ordered to go in the armed forces.

    • Re: comment about “armed forces”

      I vehemently disagree on a few levels.

      First, what may have worked with an unruly teenager at one time won’t work on criminal teenagers, and I would think it would be irresponsible for anyone to send thugs into the military to get more formal training with weapons that for the most part can result in far more fatalities.

      Secondly, I have far too much respect for our volunteers in the military to saddle them with attempting to train (additional) gang members, and of afflicting the morale of our military with the public perception that they are a crew of possibly reformed thugs that we pay to do our bidding.

      There are already documented cases of gang members receiving training in the military, and these should be weeded out, not added to.

    • People so ignorant. Did they know after the first conviction every opportunity to do right will be took leaving a black man no choice. Tryed the force and everything else they basically said a felon have no place in society. So tell me whose to blame when we have heads to feed. Reality check. Still trying to find a career.

  5. It never ceases to amaze me that the justice system continues to believe that individuals arrested for narcotics charges are a social problem. The continued ‘efforts’ of the 9th, if you call them that, is heart breaking at best. The lawyers, 9th and judges have shown that even when the law clearly has teeth, they continue to show they would rather just lower bonds and get them out the door. Good job.

    • Terrence,…… Your comment about a “black man” not having a chance to do right after he is convicted of his first crime is most likely true. But let’s consider this….. no one forced them to do the crime in the first place. It was a decision they made on their own and now they have to live w/ the consequences of their actions. Trying to blame others for their situation is a sure sign of a weak personal constitution. Using that excuse to justify further criminal activity is a crutch that too many people in this society lean on. Not everyone is born well-off and have all the best chances in life to be successful I’ll admit, but it’s still no reason to follow the rest of the lemmings over the cliff. Here’s the “REALITY CHECK” as you call it….. while it may be extremely difficult to “do right” after your first offence….. it’s NOT impossible. Doing “right” is never easy and the temptation of easy money is always going to be there. It’s what we choose to do with our life after we’ve made a bad decision that defines a persons character.
      I don’t have all the answers and I won’t be so arrogant as to tell others how to live their life. All I know for sure is that crime is not the answer to anyone’s financial problems. While it may pay BIG money at first, there’s no good retirement plan. In the end you whined up being separated from the ones you love and were “trying” to take care of… it in prison (again) or in the grave (forever).
