Law & Crime

A judge has added another decadeslong prison sentence for disgraced attorney and twice-convicted murderer Alex Murdaugh.

U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel ordered Murdaugh to serve 40 years in prison for stealing nearly $11 million from clients and his law firm. This is on top of the two life sentences he received for murdering his wife and son and the 27 years he got for similar financial crimes in state court.

Federal prosecutors had asked for between 17.5 years and nearly 22 years. But Gergel, a Barack Obama appointee, nearly doubled the sentence because Murdaugh stole from “the most needy, vulnerable people” including a quadriplegic, state trooper and a trust fund meant for children. the judge said.
