Markeith Loyd’s legal professional accused of submitting ‘extreme’ authorized payments

ORLANDO, Fla. The attorney who represents accused murderer Markeith Loyd has not been paid to work on the case in nearly a year because a state agency objected to attorney’s “excessive” legal bills, according to News 6 records.

In July 2018, a judge appointed attorney Terence Lenamon to defend Loyd on two separate death penalty cases involving the murders of Loyd’s pregnant ex-girlfriend Sade Dixon and Orlando Police, Lt. Debra Clayton, concerned.

The Justice Administration Commission (JAC) is responsible for processing financial bills submitted to the state by private court-appointed attorneys who represent defendants in need.

Since Lenamon’s appointment, JAC has approved nearly $ 185,000 in attorney fees for Lenamon’s work on the Loyd cases.

However, JAC has yet to approve Lenamon’s latest $ 75,750 bill for work he performed on Loyd’s behalf between June and October 2020.

In a letter commenting on Lenamon’s recent legal fees, JAC officials said to Lenamon, “The number of hours JAC is being billed for your court-ordered cases is too high and worrying.”

Except for a few minor typographical errors on invoices, Lenamon insists that he accurately invoiced the state for the work he did for its clients in need.
