    Will Drew Peterson get a new trial?

    http://www.hlntv.com/article/2012/10...rodsky-carroll

    In court documents filed earlier this month, attorney John Paul Carroll accused Petersonís trial attorney, Joel Brodsky, of not effectively defending Peterson.

    Drew Peterson's lead attorney Joel Brodsky has withdrawn from the case. We'll bring you more details as we get them.

    All part of the plan?

    Carroll wasn’t in court Tuesday, but two new attorneys stepped up to help represent Peterson as he faces up to 60 years in prison for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

    One of the attorneys, David Peilet, said he would consider all possible grounds for an appeal, including the allegations that Brodsky failed to provide competent counsel.

    Greenberg and three other attorneys from Peterson's murder trial are still on the case. But one of the surviving lawyers, Joseph "Shark" Lopez, said they might have to go too.

    "Maybe in the future we may have to withdraw," he said.

    I guess it's kind of hard to claim ineffective counsel if you don't fire the attorneys. jmo

    With all the appeal issues, I highly doubt DP will have any problems with representation.

    Brodsky and DP have been thick as thieves from the beginning. I have no doubt in my mind that this was an alternative plan if DP got convicted.

    IMO of course

    I agree. . . when Brodsky put that last witness on the stand against the advice of his co-counsel I wondered if it was leading up to an appeal if Drew was found guilty. And especially when Drew said "good job" to them before they led him away~! Sarcasm or grounds for an appeal??? Both??? JMO

    I don't think you can win an ineffective counsel claim, when you have FIVE top rated, experienced defense attorneys, who actively defended you by filing dozens and dozens of pretrial motions and appeals and complaints and who were very proactive and vocal and lodged hundreds of objections and did very aggressive cross examinations. That never seems to work.

    Ineffective counsel is only successful when it can be shown that the defense was weak and did not take any action and did not make objections or make any effort to present a case.

    ETA:

    If you are GUILTY and your attorney accidentally allows some of the evidence proving your guilt, to be revealed by one of the witnesses HE called---that is hilarious---but does not equal ineffective counsel.

    New hearing set in Drew Peterson murder case

    After months of sniping by his attorneys and the filing of inflammatory motions, Drew Peterson finally has a court date in his bid for a new trial.

    Judge Edward Burmila set Feb. 19 and 20 as the dates for Peterson’s hearing for a new trial. If Burmila denies his motion, Peterson’s sentencing hearing will begin immediately

    The allegations of ineffective counsel have all been leveled against Brodsky, who is expected to testify at the February hearing.


    This should be interesting.

    Joseph Lopez, left, attorney for Drew Peterson, leaves as Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow arrives to speak to the media after a hearing at the Will County Courthouse in Joliet. The date was set today for a Will County judge to hear Drew Peterson's motion for a new trial on Feb. 19 and the next day has been set aside for a sentencing hearing at which prosecutors will put on evidence that he also murdered his fourth wife, Stacy.

    Drew Peterson’s lawyers could both argue, testify

    Burmila says the attorneys will be allowed to both make arguments and testify about claims of a substandard trial defense.
