Bland Richter Responds to Murdaugh Attorney’s Press Conference Demanding New Trial

Blog, Latest News, Press Releases

Attorneys Eric Bland and Ronnie Richter of Bland Richter Law Firm, who represent multiple victims of Alex Murdaugh, have released a response to the newly filed motion for a new trial for Murdaugh.

Defense attorneys for Alex Murdaugh alleged that Colleton County Clerk of Court, Becky Hill, tampered with the jury that found him guilty of the murder of his wife and son.

“It is an extraordinary thing to accuse a Clerk of Court with jury tampering. The right to a fair and impartial jury is the bedrock of our judicial system. Time will tell whether there is any merit in this latest Murdaugh missive, or whether this is just another Murdaugh misdirection. In the meantime, it is important to keep in mind that the system has to work even for the worst of us – this is our only assurance that it will work for the rest of us.”
