    Wow — the judge overseeing Alex Murdaugh's bond hearing seems to think the request by *prosecutors* for a $200K bond is too low. "The issue for me is if the court should deny bond entirely," Judge Clifton Newman just said. He's called for a 15 minute break.

    Harpootlian was floundering.
    Blamed others. Ins.co. Bank. That’ll come back to bite him.
    I bet he has made more enemies today with his lies.

    I'm sorry but could the judge please keep his voice up? I can't understand him. JMO.

    You could see this coming once the judge began speaking.

    Judge Clifton Newman has ruled no bond will be given to Alex Murdaugh. Murdaugh will remain housed in the Richland County Detention Center where he has been since this past weekend. Judge is asking for a Psychiatric Evaluation. @WCBD

    What a great response from Judge Newman to the defense's poor addicted defendant nonsense!

    Bland argued that Alex Murdaugh presents a danger to the community.

    “This is a man who used a gun on Labor Day weekend,” Bland said, referring to Murdaugh’s alleged suicide for hire incident.

    Bland said he wanted the court to make sure Alex Murdaugh’s assets were locked. He said Murdaugh has made several financial moves such as selling his $100,000 bond.

    Bland argued that this case has larger implications on both the law profession and the state of South Carolina.

    I hope AM takes full advantage of any resources available to him while in custody. Many jails have very robust 12-Step programs. It's not the appropriate treatment approach for every addict, (of course) but when thrown a life-ring, it's not a bad recommendation to grab on tightly and put your life in the hands of a power outside /greater than yourself.

    IMO

    ‘He’s a Liar And A Cheat’: Alex Murdaugh Denied Bond

    South Carolina circuit judge Clifton Newman denied bond for Alex Murdaugh during his highly-anticipated court hearing in Richland County Tuesday morning.

    Newman said that Murdaugh presented a danger to both himself and the community. He said he couldn’t provide a bond at this time.

    “There’s no amount of bond the court can set that can provide safety to Mr. Murdaugh and the community,” Newman said.

    Applause to this brilliant judge. He didn’t buy any of Harpootlian and Griffin’s ridiculous lies and fact spinning. He took none of it concerning AM’s addiction and state of mind. He called them on it and said “prove it”!
    I also liked that he mentioned tons of people coming through his court with addiction problems and they get sent to jail without benefit of rehab. (...or something like that, it was hard to hear him sometimes...)

    AM threw some people under the bus today and his attorney just doubled down on that in his comments outside the court. Can't imagine how that is going to help him in any way.

    What stinks is AM will have a pretty easy time in jail. He's an experienced attorney. He will be a valuable friend to a lot of the inmates who need legal 'help' on their cases. That could mean anything from protection to commissary items and anything else that is a tradable commodity in prison.

    Get comfy in your inmate clothes and cell AM and welcome to the real world where real criminals do real jail time.

    It's a start.

    During the bond hearing, Muradugh’s attorney Dick Harpooltian claimed that during the Satterfield lawsuit, Murdaugh had no say in where the money went and that he was not the lawyer -- but the defendant.

    The prosecutors claimed that Murdaugh used his position of power to take control of the Satterfield situation.

    I would say he is safer in Jail. Who knows if he has anyone else that is willing to meet him on a lonely road and put a bullet in him. Oh snap he knows now that the suicide clause won't count. He can do it himself. Seriously though if he is going to spill the beans on others he may not be safe out of jail.

    i am quite sure this is true. I could see him disappearing. Even though the judge has said his assets are to be locked.... my guess is he did fanagle and hide monies while he was living in his "get out of jail free card" rehab....
