Re:  Revised General Sessions Sentence Sheet (SCCA Form 217)


Pursuant to the provisions of S.C. Const. art. V, § 4, the Sentence Sheet form bearing a revision date of 04/2018 is approved for use in the Circuit Courts of the State of South Carolina, effective May 1, 2018.  The form replaces the Sentence Sheet bearing a revision date of 07/2016.

Related to the Mandatory GPS requirement, the form has been updated to replace "lewd act" with "CSC w/minor 3rd", which was necessitated by amendments to S.C. Code Ann. §§ 16-3-655(C) and 23-3-540(A) by Act No. 255, 2012 S.C. Acts 2030.

The form has also been updated to indicate that the $500.00 public defender/probation fee is set by a proviso.  Previously, the form indicated the proviso number.  Eliminating the number alleviates the need to revise the form each year with the current proviso number.

This form is available on the South Carolina Judicial Department website at
