Real Estate Laws


PUBLIC DEFENDER. LIVE IN SPARTANBURG THIS EVENING, I’M ERIN ROGERS. KOHLHEPP IS A LICENSED REAL ESTATE AGENT EVEN THOUGH HE WAS CONVICTED OF KIDNAPPING IN ARIZONA IN 1997. SOUTH CAROLINA DOES REQUIRE BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR REAL ESTATE AGENTS OR AT LEAST THEY DO NOW. ROBERT HAS BEEN LOOKING INTO HOW KOHLHEPP GOT HIS LICENSE. TODD KOHLHEPP GOT HIS REAL ESTATE LICENSE. BACK THEN A BACKGROUND CHECK WAS NOT REQUIRED. PEOPLE THAT ALREADY HAD A LICENSE WERE GRANDFATHERED IN. BEFORE THAT, THE STATE COULD DENY A LICENSE THAT HAD BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME OR VIOLATED LAWS LIKE FORGERY, EMBEZZLEMENT, BREACH OF TRUST, EXTORTION OR FRAUD. TO ASK WHETHER SOMEONE HAS BEEN CONVICTED OR PLED GUILTY TO NO CONTEST OF A CRIME. KOHLHEPP CHECKED YES AND INCLUDED A LETTER HE SAYS WHAT HAPPENED. WHEN HE WAS A 15-YEAR-OLD CHILD IN ARIZONA HE HAD AN ARGUMENT WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND. HE HAD A GUN WITH HIM BECAUSE IT WAS A BAD AREA THE GIRL DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT IT. HER PARENTS COULDN’T REACH HER. BECAUSE HE HAD A GUN AND TOLD HER NOT TO MOVE WHILE THEY FAULKED THINGS OUT, HE WAS CHARGED WITH — TALKED THINGS OUT, HE WAS CHARGED WITH KIDNAPPING. THE PSYCH STORY SAID HE DID NOT HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HER, HE POINTED A GUN AT HER AND FORCED HER INTO THE HOUSE AND RAPED HER. HE TOLD THE DOCTOR HE RAPED A GIRL AND GOT CAUGHT. HE WENT TO JAIL FOR 15 YEARS. AFTER THIS CASE, THEY MAY TRY. WOW. LEARNED A LOT IN THAT ONE. RONNY SPONSOR HAD THE BILL TWO YEARS AGO TO REQUIRE BACKGROUND CHECKS. HE SAYS THEY GOT OPPOSITION TO MAKING THEM REQUIRED EVERY TWO YEARS WHEN A LICENSE COMES
