27: COJ #27: How Did This Happen? Latest Scandal Shows Just How Much Secrecy Exists in Judicial System

Happy Monday, y’all! We have always talked about the Murdaugh case in terms of “Monsters” being around every corner — meaning, that back when Liz and Mandy started reporting this case in 2019, it seemed like every new bit of information led to a monster. Another rabbit hole to go down. This week we were reminded that those monsters don’t just exist in the Murdaugh world. This week, we couldn’t wait to talk about the Jeroid Price case.  Price — a convicted murderer and alleged "godfather" of the SC bloods who was just starting year 20 of his 35-year sentence — hired a high-powered legislator-lawyer who was somehow able to broker a secret deal with a solicitor and a retiring judge that allowed for his early release. And it seems like they told no one about this … not the Department of Corrections, not law enforcement and, most importantly, not the victims, the family of Carl Smalls Jr. who was killed by Price in 2002.  Of course, right after we put our Cups Down on Thursday, more breaking news happened so this episode is a little longer than normal with an extra 30 minutes starting around the 52 minute mark.  Let’s get into it … Find us on social media: Twitter.com/mandymatney - Twitter.com/elizfarrell - Twitter.com/theericbland https://www.facebook.com/cupofjustice/ YouTube Please consider sharing your support by leaving a review on Apple at the following link: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/cup-of-justice/id1668668400 *The views expressed on the Cup of Justice bonus episodes do not constitute legal advice.

24: COJ #24: No Apologies: Stephen Smith Exhumation and What’s Next

Happy Monday, y’all. We have some really good news to share with you today. On Friday, the body of Stephen Smith was exhumed and taken to Florida for a second autopsy. His mother, Sandy, waited nearly eight years for this moment to come.  It was a very emotional day but also a peaceful one. Sandy could feel the love and knew her boy was in good hands. We want to again thank all of you who donated to Sandy’s GoFundMe. You helped make this happen and I feel confident that we are now well on our way to getting answers — whatever those answers may be. We also want to thank SLED Chief Mark Keel and every agent who took the time Friday to connect with Sandy, who kept everyone safe and protected during the exhumation and who accompanied Stephen’s body to the autopsy. And thank you too to forensic pathologist Dr. Michelle DuPre for your empathetic and professional approach. You put everyone at ease during a difficult time. This independent exhumation and autopsy were critical because of how the investigation into Stephen’s death was conducted and all the questions surrounding his case. The system had given Sandy no reason to trust in it. Investigators needed to start at Square One and this gets them there. These are just the first steps to finding out why Stephen Smith was found dead on a Hampton County road in 2015 but they are really good first steps. Liz, Eric and Mandy got together online Sunday morning to talk about how the exhumation went, the strange drama surrounding it and what comes next. We also found a little time to talk about the latest with Alex Murdaugh and his life in prison.  There was a lot to say, so let’s get into it … We all want to drink from the same Cup Of Justice — and it starts with learning about our legal system.

23: COJ #23 Justice for Stephen Smith: We’re Finally Moving In the Right Direction

Well, y’all, this was a BIG week. Right after our last Cup of Justice episode was published, Eric’s law firm Bland Richter announced they will be representing Sandy Smith in her mission to finally get answers about Stephen’s death. Within a day of announcing this partnership, SLED chief Mark Keel called Eric and told him that his agency believes that Stephen was NOT hit by a car but rather was murdered and that SLED is devoting more resources to finding out who killed Stephen. I cannot express how emotional and bittersweet it has been this past week. I’m so happy for Sandy, Stephanie, the Smith family and everyone who knew and loved Stephen in that they finally have a fighting chance at getting some answers.  But this took FAR TOO LONG. No family should have to work this hard to get law enforcement to acknowledge the truth about how their loved one died.  Now that we’re here, though, we’re ready to see some much-deserved JUSTICE for Stephen Smith. So lets get into it... We'd like to thank Better Help for sponsoring this episode. And a big shout out to Rabia and Ellyn Solve the Case - Mandy recently sat down with this amazing duo and we'll be sharing parts of that interview with the COJ audience soon.  We all want to drink from the same Cup Of Justice — and it starts with learning about our legal system.

22: COJ #22: Getting Answers about Stephen Smith’s Murder and How to Solve Cold Cases

In BREAKING NEWS - Eric Bland and Ronnie Richter have been retained by Sandy Smith to help her get Justice for Stephen. Mandy joins Sandy and Eric in a press Conference today, Monday March 20th at 8:30am on the Bland Richter Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/blandrichter  Now that Alex Murdaugh will spend the rest of his life in prison for the murders of Maggie and Paul, it’s time to put the focus on getting answers in the Stephen Smith case. For almost eight years, Sandy Smith has fought to get answers about her son’s murder. Whether or not Alex Murdaugh had anything to do with Stephen Smith’s death, the Murdaugh name is connected to the case in some way. Our greatest hope right now is that the momentum from the murder trial and the powerhouse duo of Bland & Richter encourages people to come out of the shadows to finally speak up and say what they know about Stephen’s murder in 2015. In this episode, we talk about the reasoning behind the exhumation and how private exhumations work.  Smith's family believes he was murdered, and they want an unbiased look at his body and an accurate determination of his cause of death based on facts.  At the date of this release the Go Fund Me has raised over $61,000.  We also catch up on Russell Laffitte’s attempt to use Alex Murdaugh’s witness stand exoneration as grounds for a new trial. And we take a look at ways community members can help get answers in cold cases. Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell — and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland — talk about the next steps in the Smith case and how people can get answers in cases that have gone cold.

21: COJ #21: Randy Murdaugh Hits the Reset Button and Russell Laffitte Has Bills to Pay

One week after Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to life for killing his wife and son, Murdaugh Murders Podcast co-hosts Mandy Matney and Liz Farrell — and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland — take a look at the questions surrounding a juror’s connections to a witness, the problems with the judicial selection process in South Carolina and the need for reform and Russell Laffitte’s overdue bills. It’s been over a week since Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to two consecutive life terms for killing his wife and son, and there hasn’t been a break in the news. On Monday, federal Judge Richard Gergel denied Russell Laffitte’s motion for a new trial. Now his case moves to the appeals phase, which Russell will go through without the help of his original attorneys Bart Daniel and Matt Austin because on Thursday Bart and Matt filed a motion to dump Russell. Apparently Alex’s co-conspirator hasn’t paid the balance of his legal bill at Nelson Mullins. According to our amazing co-host Eric Bland, Russell will be sentenced in May or June of this year and, after reading Judge Gergel’s scathing order Monday, we’re all expecting he’ll receive a significant punishment.  We have a really interesting show for you today. We talked about the unwarranted criticism surrounding James the Juror and his connection to the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office, Dick Harpootlian’s Good Ole Boy fragility and the need for judicial reform in this state.

11: Cup of Justice 11: Days of Bowing at the Altar of the Good Ole Boys Are Over

*Originally Published As Bonus to Murdaugh Murders Podcast, December 2022. In this first part of a two-part episode, Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and everyone’s favorite attorney Eric Bland talk about the suspicious circumstances surrounding Alex Murdaugh’s one big case as a lead prosecutor; the untouchable “retired” judges who are reluctant to give up the power (and money) that come with the black robes; and the time Eric had to go to Circuit City to buy something to place at the altar of Dick Harpootlian.
