Discredited lawyer Alex Murdaugh continued his shocking confessions. Already serving life for killing his wife and son, Murdaugh admitted stealing millions from clients and his housekeeper’s estate.
Murdaugh’s lawyer said the disbarred lawyer was “cooperative” and “apologized” to victims. He did not dispute any charges in the complex financial schemes.
A federal indictment accused Murdaugh of running different scams from 2005–2021. He surreptitiously transferred client settlement funds and conspired with a banker found guilty of fraud.
Murdaugh also covertly diverted nearly $3.5 million from his housekeeper’s estate after her death. He had faced no charges in the mysterious 2018 falling incident until his admissions.
The concurrent life sentences for the brutal family murders meant Murdaugh faced no additional jail time. However, his stunning confessions finally gave answers to victims of his profound betrayal.
