    Cassandra Cales, sister of Stacy Peterson, left the courtroom shortly after the first set of prospective jurors was sworn in.

    “I just wanted to see that this was going to move on, so he can be convicted,” Cales said as she left the courthouse, adding that she intends to return for opening statements next week and to attend each day of the trial. “It feels good to actually see something being done.”

    My understanding of the hearsay stuff, is that some was ruled out. I think, the way I am hearing it, the prosecution wants the judge to say yes info will be admitted now, before the trial starts.

    How I interepreted what I heard on AM 780 WBBM radio was the judge will make the decision as to whether certain hearsay information will be admissable as the prosecution presents it during trial.

    I could sware I heard the newscaster on 'BBM say earlier this afternoon (paraphrased from memory) the judge said the prosecution could bring it in but the defense could still object.

    anyone else listening to 'BBM? What are they hearing?

    Yes Cubby, that is the way I remember it also, that some was going to be allowed but some was not.

    As far as cameras and Illinois, they are allowed I know as there is a local murder trial that they are allowing cameras (Nicolas Sheeley trial) and I want to say this was the first Illinois trial that they are allowing them. I know they are allowing them, just not certain that it's the first Illinois trial.

    Please please please, let's get this creeper convicted and settled into a really nice Illinois prison. I want to see that smugly grin wiped off his chin.

    I don't know if I can deal with this trial right now. I have a bad feeling about it for some reason.

    Before jury selection began Monday, Will County Judge Edward Burmila refused prosecutors' request to give them blanket approval to admit eight key hearsay statements. Burmila said he will make a final ruling on the admissibility of each statement only as they come up at trial.

    Neither Burmila nor the attorneys spoke in any detail about the substance of the eight statements.

    The above best describes what I heard on 'BBM AM 780 radio earlier today.

    Thanks Cubby for the clarification. I read the article posted and thought that the judge had outright disallowed the hearsay. I understand from your post that it will likely be on an individual basis what hearsay comes in and what doesn't.

    Hopefully the prosecution will be allowed to present the key pieces of hearsay, particularly the testimony of Pastor Neil Schori. I expect the defense to object to each piece of hearsay the prosecution tries to bring in.
    My posts are my opinion..........

    I so agree! I expect that when Stacy is called to the stand and doesn't show up, the defense will ask for her to be cited for contempt of court.

    Jury selection begins in Drew Peterson trial

    Peterson, his trademark mustache shaved off, stood and spoke to some 40 potential jurors as jury selection began Monday.

    "Good morning ladies and gentlemen, I'm Mr. Peterson," he said in a steady voice.

    http://www.freep.com/usatoday/articl...CFRONTPAGE%7Cp


    Is that normal protocol for a defendant to introduce themselves to potential jurors?

    ?
    BBM:

    I have never heard of a defendant introducing himself/herself to potential jurors. It's just that, well, don't you know how 'special' Peterson is?

    It really scares me how much I genuinely despise this unusual person.

    I wonder if by declaring himself " Jury Consultant" if that gives him the right to address the jury pool?

    If that's the case I'm pretty appalled as it allows him a certain interaction on a way too familiar level. kwim?

    bbm I hear ya on that one

    True that! While Jose and CA may have been raving narcissists, I do believe they at least made an effort, after their own fashion, to keep it in check.

    Drew, on the other hand, has NOTHING going for him in life EXCEPT a desperate clinging to his cherished sick delusion that he is "cute". The delusion used to be "cute AND powerful" but I'd say his few years behind bars have stripped the "power" part from his sick mind, all in my opinion, of course.

    I hope the spirit of all those who died or suffered at his hands visit him in the prison of his mind behind bars while he does the long wait for his own death, which WILL happen.

    Will this walking-talking deadman do any inward spiritual work before he is taken from this earth?

    I already served my jury time for awhile, so I didn't get called on this one. They wouldn't have wanted me anyway, during jury questioning I would have declared I think he's guilty of this crime as well as Stacy's disappearance. Then they would have shoved me over to civil court.

    This is one time I would have liked to see the cameras in the courtrooms here in Illinois.
    That's Ms Crime Junkie to you Mr Baez...

    Also having a funky feeling about this trial. The fact that we will not see the displays we all know DP just LOVES. I pray his sick idea of charm gives the jurors a glimpse into how perverted, sick, and despicable this one is.
    Don't take yourself so seriously... nobody else does.

    Yes, well, if they did, imagine the impression that would make on the jury. I'm not sure that's a gamble Drew and his defense team want to make.

    Jury selection finished in Drew Peterson murder trial

    Drew Peterson’s attorneys exulted over the composition of the seven-man, five-woman jury they finished selecting Tuesday to decide whether former Bolingbrook cop Drew murdered third wife Kathleen Savio

    <snip>

    Four alternate jurors — one woman and three men — also were selected Tuesday.

    Proceedings Tuesday were delayed because Peterson needed a new pair of pants Tuesday morning, reports CBS 2’s Mike Puccinelli. The pants Peterson was wearing did not fit.

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/07/...eterson-trial/

    Imagine that, Drew's pants not fitting well.

    Also from the above link:

    Opening statements for the trial are set for July 31 before Will County Judge Edward Burmila.

    God, I hope not. It appears both sides are satisfied with the jury. Probably even more so with the 2 yr delay in the trial. This jury pool was ordered to stay away from media regarding DP 2 years ago.

    I suppose I'm glad thus far there doesn't seem to be anything the defense can beyotch about with regards to the jury....

    This is the first time I've ever seen a defendant verbally interact with the jury.

    Drew Peterson is such a narcissist that he probably believes he can win the jury over with his charm.

    I guess he's been eating too many desserts in jail, and not exercising in his cell like he was at first.

    I am also worried about this trial. I was SO SURE that Casey Anthony would be found guilty. I was in shock for days when they found her not guilty. I cried many tears for the inhumanity of it, and for little Caylee being killed again by justice being stripped from her. I worry that "Mr." Peterson's case has even less circumstantial evidence than Anthony's. I will lose all faith in the justice system if he isn't found guilty.


    Justice For Caylee So sue me CA!
