Raleigh Furman Jr.
A Cassatt man will be 88 years old before he can leave prison after pleading guilty to the murder of his roommate in September 2012. Circuit Court Judge Craig Brown issued a 42-year sentence to Raleigh Furman Jr., 48., on Tuesday at the Kershaw County Courthouse. The 5th Circuit Solicitor’s Office had sought a sentence of life in prison without parole if Furman had been convicted in a jury trial.
