The Murdaugh Murders Podcast team saw its first major legal victory this week. After a tense deliberation, a jury found former Palmetto State Bank CEO Russell Laffitte guilty of all charges late Tuesday night for his role in conspiring to steal money from clients of Alex Murdaugh. Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell talk to attorneys Justin Bamberg and Eric Bland to get their thoughts on the dramatic trial and what’s next for Russell. They also catch up with Alania Plyler-Spohn, who helped bring justice by testifying against her former conservator.

Listen to episode 56 for Alania Plyler’s account of what occurred when Russell took over her conservatorship or watch it on our YouTube channel:
