Cup of Justice co-hosts Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland — talk about the latest breakdowns in justice system, starting with Bowen Turner, the Orangeburg, South Carolina, man whose lawyer-legislator got him a sweet (and secret) plea deal in 2023 after three girls accused him of rape. In his latest (predictable) arrest, the world FINALLY gets to see what Bowen is like firsthand as he cajoles, bullies and harasses a female state highway patrol officer on his way to jail. Also on the show, a Charleston lawyer-legislator is being sued after a former client accuses him of forgery and secretly settling his case against a police department. More than that, Marvin Pendarvis is accused of raiding his clients’ trust accounts to buy his way out of the problem. Also an update on Mandy and Liz’s deep dive into the Stephen Smith case.
