Alex Murdaugh’s co-conspirator Russell Laffitte — the small-town banker who said he asked no questions about Alex’s scheme and who allowed Alex to use and abuse his family’s bank — has finally turned himself in to serve his seven-year federal prison sentence. Co-hosts Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland — talk about what life will be like for Russell at what is basically a “bougee prison” for men who steal large amounts of money and defraud taxpayers.
Also on the show the Good Guys subpoena Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin to find out just how much they’ve been making as they sell Alex’s story to Hollywood.
