MYRTLE BEACH – Horry County’s attorney Ralph Wilson Jr.’s ability to practice in the state was suspended Monday afternoon by the South Carolina Supreme Court at the request of the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.
Wilson Jr. was arrested for first degree domestic violence on Jan. 24 and was later released on a $ 10,000 personal loan note, according to court records.

According to arrest warrants in the case, Wilson allegedly struck the victim “several times in the back and face”. He also “poured water” and “put a pillow” over the victim’s mouth and nose, which “obstructed their airflow”.
The arrest warrants released stated that Wilson threw the victim’s cell phone in the back yard and the incident was related to children.
In a statement previously sent to the Post Office and Courier Myrtle Beach, Wilson said that “the allegations against him are totally false, made up by his wife and upon a request from him to separate.”
Wilson was admitted to the South Carolina bar in 2007 and later admitted to the United States Supreme Court Bar in 2018.
