    Harpootlian said Murdaugh went to a detox facility after he left the hospital for immediate treatment from the Sept. 4 incident. From detox, Murdaugh attempted to enter rehab.

    “Unfortunately the place he was at did not have a bed, and so we had to find him another bed,” Harpootlian said.

    “This was being paid for by insurance,” Harpootlian added — presumably with reference to Murdaugh’s treatment but perhaps also with reference to his own representation.

    Yeah we learned that the hard way didn't we? We still haven't seen an A/R or read any proffers in the Rhoden murders.

    The deaths of MM and PM certainly need as much light shined on them as possible. Plus all the crooked deal made by Alex and co. I have a feeling the appeals for any settlements/convictions are being written up by hundreds of attorneys across SC at this very minute. Bad thing is, how many really guilty people will walk because Alex worked on their criminal case while in a drug addled state. 10 mil buys a lot of opioids.

    Insurance fraud? Likely a. felony. due to amount.

    False police report - felony violation.

    Stealing $10M from the law firm? Definitely a felony.

    It sounded to me as if he was referring to representation. How would that work, exactly?

    His current charges have nothing to do with his professional behavior/skills/lack thereof.

    Checking in. Just saw the court clip. Out on bail already. Wonder where the out-of-state rehab is that he returns to? Not surprised he’s out but disappointed (nothing new) that justice isn’t fair. Insurance fraud should be an enormous deal. Ditto for interfering with an investigation & false reporting. And I don’t believe for a minute he couldn’t rustle up the cash for flight. Maybe the millions he embezzled are already offshore?

    Did notice his prison shirt was green. Much better look for a carrot top than other colors. Disappointed he got to wear his covid mask- kind of grants a sense of privacy. Now goin’ back to read missed posts…

    The conspiracy charge is also a felony.

    That was my initial thought but I'm also not a legal analyst. To me, I felt that thought was emotionally based and not driven off the charges current/upcoming

    Wondering if AM relied a lot on his father for case referrals. I'm not sure his father officially retired from the firm before he died, but he certainly would have slowed down, especially after he became ill. Maybe that's when the AM's "conversion" of client and law firm money really took off. JMO.

    I'm telling you from family experience, if he was truly addicted to oxy his rehab stay would have been six weeks of total suffering. He wouldn't have walked out on his own for any court date. It's a brutal withdrawal. Moo

    *Editing myself to say by “FAMILY” I didn’t mean AM’s family but a hypothetical crime syndicate. Not at all suggesting any wrongdoing by AM’s actual family or anyone else.
