True Sunlight Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland — unpack the last-minute plea deal struck in Alex Murdaugh’s financial cases, including what was happening behind the scenes leading up to it. Why did Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin suddenly agree to 27 years? What will their next move be? And what reassurance do we have that Alex Murdaugh will live the rest of his life behind bars?

Liz, Eric and Mandy are usually in agreement when it comes to Team Murdaugh and interpreting the winners and losers in their strategies. But not this time. The biggest question on our minds after Alex Murdaugh’s decision last week to plead guilty to his financial crimes was this: IS. THIS. JUSTICE?

Once again — someone with means and influence can — for all practical purchases — still buy his way out of the worst trouble. This plea deal — at its core — buys Alex more time and gives him more space to work on getting out of his other charges — the roadside shooting and drug trafficking charges. It’s a big deal and could open up a whole new door for Alex…

In addition to that, our premium listeners will get to hear our conversation about what we think Dick and Jim’s next moves will be… and what can be done about that.
