COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCBD) – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson on Thursday announced that a State Grand Jury has brought seven new indictments against disgraced Hampton County lawyer Alex Murdaugh.
The indictments consist of 21 new charges including: nine counts of Breach of Trust with Fraudulent Intent; seven counts of Computer Crimes; four counts of Money Laundering and one count of Forgery.
These charges are in addition to those brought against Murdaugh by the Grand Jury in November.
Five of the new indictments are venued in Hampton County, one is in Colleton County, and one is in Beaufort County.
The indictments come just one day before a bond hearing was scheduled for the previous indictments. That hearing was postponed to the morning of December 13th in light of the new developments.
