Cup of Justice co-hosts Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland — are back with their analysis of former Colleton County Clerk of Court Becky Hill’s enormous lineup of ethics charges. 

Last week Becky was charged with 76 violations of the state ethics code for giving herself around $10K in bonuses with Department of Social Services money along with a litany of allegedly unauthorized purchases for meals, parties and holiday celebrations. Were these charges directly related to Alex Murdaugh’s trial and getting publicity for Becky’s book? 

Also on the show, each day that passes since Mica Miller’s death, the more strange this case gets. Mandy, Liz and Eric talk about the FBI investigation and the latest filings they’ve uncovered on True Sunlight Podcast in what has become one of South Carolina’s most puzzling cases. Plus Dick Harpootlian gets endorsed by one of the state’s biggest newspapers. Why? 
Premium Members get extended discussions about the Mica Miller case that add significant context to the wild twists and turns here, plus a lively chat about trust and transparency in our public courts. 

Let’s get into it…
