to an applicant permitting him to act as a professional bondsman
or runner, the applicant shall furnish to the director or his
designee a complete set of his fingerprints and a recent
passport size full-face photograph in the manner prescribed
by the director. Before a license is issued to a new or renewal

bondsman, or runner, the applicant must undergo a state criminal
records check, supported by his fingerprints, by the South
Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and a national criminal
records check, supported by his fingerprints, by the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The results of these criminal
records checks must be reported by the department. The cost
associated with the criminal history record must be borne by the
applicant. The applicant's fingerprints must be certified
by an authorized law enforcement officer.
(B) Before being issued the license, every applicant for a license as a professional bondsman, surety bondsman, or runner shall certify to the director that he:
eighteen years of age or older;
(b)(2) is a
resident of this State;
(c)(3) is a
person of good moral character and has not been convicted of a
felony or any crime involving moral turpitude within the last
knowledge, training, or experience of sufficient duration and
extent to satisfy reasonably the director or his designee that

responsibilities of a licensee."
