Disgraced ex-lawyer Alex Murdaugh sentenced to 40 years for financial crimes

Alex Murdaugh, the disgraced lawyer convicted of murdering his wife and son, has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for federal financial crimes. This latest sentence will be served at the same time as his state prison term, also for financial crimes. Murdaugh must also pay more than $8m in restitution to his victims. Despite maintaining his innocence in the murders of his family, Murdaugh admitted to stealing millions from client settlements to fund a drug habit. The sentencing judge emphasized the impact of his crimes on vulnerable individuals and the legal community as a whole.
