Attorneys struggle former SC attorney’s bond denial

As former South Carolina attorney Richard “Alex” Murdaugh remains jailed in the Richland County Detention Center without bond facing multiple criminal charges and civil suits, his attorneys are fighting to unfreeze his assets and to have his bond denial reconsidered. 

On Friday, Nov. 12, attorneys John H. Tiller and M. Dawes Cooke Jr., of Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, PA, filed a motion in Hampton County Court of Common Pleas to alter or amend a recent order granting temporary injunction and appointing co-receivers and co-receivers counsel to preserve and manage Murdaugh’s assets.

The motion contends that not only is the current order unlawful, it also fails to provide for Murdaugh to pay legal and medical expense or provide for daily living expenses.
