Should Alex Murdaugh Have Testified? by Christopher Hazlehurst, J.D. | Mar 14, 2023
Attorney Paul Tyler was recently interviewed for an article published on the legal news, information and blog website www.LawCommentary.com. The article concerned the recent high-profile murder conviction and sentencing of former South Carolina trial lawyer Alex Murdaugh, who was convicted of murdering his wife and son. The article discussed Murdaugh’s decision to take the stand and testify in his defense. Attorney Tyler commented in the article about the risks of a defendant choosing to testify, explaining that it is usually not a good idea as it opens the door for the prosecution to bring the defendant’s character and prior conduct into the case before the jury.
