After the arrest of Dylann Roof following the June 17 shootings at Emanuel A.M.E. Church in downtown Charleston, the U.S. Department of Justice announced an additional 12 hate crime counts against the accused shooter.
The indictments are leading some South Carolina lawmakers to consider introducing hate crime legislation at the state level.
Varner and Segura’s Grant Varner talked with FOX Carolina about how hate crime legislation can impact prison terms.
