As for the new tax crime charges, reports claim they are related to financial crimes committed by the former prominent South Carolina lawyer between 2020 and 2021, according to FitsNews.

He was previously sentenced to two life terms following a grueling six-week trial for the murders of his late wife, Maggie, and son Paul.

RadarOnline.com exclusively learned that Murdaugh's legal woes won't stop with his latest charges. He recently asked a judge to grant him more time to respond to a lawsuit accusing him of stealing millions from his late housekeeper Gloria Satterfield's family.

His attorney explained that his assignment to a special Restrictive Housing Unit has led to some logistical complications. Furthermore, it was argued that he had no ability to be deposed within the next 30 days or had any documents to produce in time.

Meanwhile, it seems he is getting more acquainted with life behind bars although he hopes to one day be a free man.

Murdaugh's lawyer, Jim Griffin, said that he is eager to move out of protective custody at McCormick Correctional Institution and into the general population wing because he could be more productive, despite facing threats.

Griffin told Chris Cuomo, "He would rather take his chances on the yard than rot away in a cell, to be honest with you."
