    Drew Peterson Wins Appeal on Certain Hearsay Evidence

    Appeals court upholds limits on Drew Peterson hearsay evidence.

    An Illinois appeals court has issued its long-awaited ruling on the Drew Peterson murder case, dismissing an appeal by prosecutors to allow more hearsay statements at trial and affirming earlier rulings by the trial judge.

    I'm getting really tired of the murder victims' (and their families ̶e̶x̶c̶e̶p̶t ̶t̶h̶e ̶A̶n̶t̶h̶o̶n̶y'̶s), having NO VOICE.

    Well, that just figures! I don't know if I can follow another trial where the murderer may possibly be let free. What is wrong with the system, that the perpetraters get every chance afforded to them, and the victims get zilch! I'm just sick!

    The way I read the article was that the appeals court didn't rule on the hearsay evidence because the appeal filing was too late. Am I reading this right?? I can't believe it took a year to rule that it was filed late.

    They are allowing 6 of 14 statements. I wonder if they still have a case.

    If not, I wonder if they will proceed with charges connected to Stacy's disappearance/murder.

    Technically... the appellate court ruled in 5 months. They got the case in Feb 2011.

    The actual hearsay hearings took place Jan-Feb 2010, with trial set to begin July 2010.

    Last minute 'oops' by the pros sent the whole thing upside-down. The day before trial started, Glasgow filed to appeal the first hearsay ruling.

    So here we are.

    This is so upsetting! Following on the heels of Casey Anthony being acquitted, I'm worried that this case too, will result in DP being acquitted.

    The headline at Fox News said that the prosecution is considering an appeal to the Illinois State Supreme Court. This could delay the trial for another year.

    I just hope that if this ever actually goes to trial that no LE officers of any kind are allowed to be on the jury. I have had enough of the thin blue line crap.

    I hope that Stacy is found before this <unusual person> steps one foot out of jail.
    It would be an ironic miracle.

    Hopefully, if there is an appeal, he will continue to sit in jail until another ruling. That is right where he belongs. The longer it takes, the better. imo

    He has his appeal but his ex wife was still murdered .
    I will never get how it was considered otherwise and an accident at first !
