    Drew Peterson murder trial delayed

    http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2...l-delayed.html

    Drew Peterson's murder trial won't be going ahead next month as planned, after he waived his right to a speedy trial today.

    During a hearing at the Joliet courthouse, Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky told Judge Stephen White that the defense team needs more time to review some 40,000 pages of evidence.


    I hope this gives LE more time to find Stacey and level even more charges against smug Mr Peterson.

    In the article posted above, it says that the next hearing is on Aug 14 and the defense is going to ask for the trial to be moved and challenge the constitutionality of a hearsay law passed last year that allows Savio to testify "from beyond the grave.


    GRRRRRRRR!

    Brodsky said the case could end up in the U.S. Supreme Court. If Circuit Judge Stephen White agrees with the defense, the trial could be delayed for a long time, Brodsky said.

    Peterson's attorney Joel Brodsky told Judge Stephen White Tuesday that the defense team needs more time to review some 40,000 pages of evidence in the murder of Petersen's former wife Kathleen Savio, and that late August was too soon to get through it all, the Tribune reports

    Hoping to thwart prosecutors, Drew Peterson's lawyers said Tuesday they will challenge a new "beyond the grave" hearsay law nicknamed after the former Bolingbrook police sergeant.

    The move is expected to delay the start of Peterson's trial on charges he murdered his third wife, Kathleen Savio, 40, who mysteriously drowned in her dry bathtub in March 2004

    I believe if the hearsay law is found unconstitutional the state will have to stop the prosecution in its tracks and take an appeal of that decision... it's that essential to their case," said Joel Brodsky, Peterson's attorney

    So, Drew needs to sell his vehicles, motorcycle and plane to fund his defense. Brings me to tears. I wonder how much of Kathleen's estate helped him buy these items?

    JB must have found someone to advise him on what to do about the case. Those motions actually make sense in a defense perspective. The challenge to the hearsay law is expected. It is a concern, but some versions of it have been used in other states for several years. He seems optimistic, but well the way I see it there is a slightly better chance that the Supreme Court will allow it. The motion that is expected to be filed to move the trial to another county is common. I just hope that the judge will take into consideration how much of that media attention DrewP either instigated or participated in. And that the case is well known enough that moving it to another county wouldn't significantly change how well the jurors knew the story.

    As long as DP remains imprisoned in his 9x12 cell, the delays aren't as troublesome. We expected motions to start filing in, no surprises there. Let's hope the Judge doesn't cave in or a higher court sympathize and reduce his bond. He's right where he belonged in the first place.

    I'm not surprised that the trial has been delayed. I thought it was too soon, and thought late this fall or early next year would be more likely.

    On JB's challenge to the hearsay law, I think it's more likely his challenge will be defeated. California was one of the first states to have the hearsay law. It was challenged and re-written and has withstood other challenges. Illinois wrote their law based on the re-written California law. Several other states also have the hearsay law.

    I guess JB is working all angles.
    My posts are my opinion..........

    LOL I agree! As long as he is in jail...I don't care if they ever have a trial. Let them keep putting it off until they find Stacy!

    His trial was set to begin in late August, but Will County Judge Stephen White is canceling that trial date.

    No new starting date is on the books.

    Peterson only spoke once during the latest hearing.

    He agreed to push back the trial so his defense team can review evidence handed over by prosecutors.

    According to the 2nd link that Painter posted, a state police detective asked her out on a date. And Brodsky is using that to try to muddy the investigative water. Some posters on there are theorizing that this is a DrewP plot to get his name in the papers again. Like maybe he had Chrissie say that.

    LOL, if it wasn't a DrewP plot, can you imagine what DrewP is going through? LOL, he can't get to her cell phone GPS to keep tabs on where she is going. He can't follow her around. He can't smack her around to keep her in line. Bet he is burning up over this. After all, his women aren't allowed to leave him and move on. He however is allowed to do as he pleases.

    ETA so Gloria Allred is representing Chrissie now. And Allred is denying that this ever happened? Did I get that right? So maybe this is a DrewP plot to get his name in the paper again.

    Ahhh, it seems that Derek Armstrong is somehow involved in this. His press release is dated July 13.


    http://www.prnewschannel.com/absolut...es/?a=1492&z=4

    Posters here seem to believe that it was hot chocolate and a diet coke while they discussed her testimony. They believe it is a DrewP plot, filtered out through Derek A..
    http://petersonstory.wordpress.com/2...hit-on-by-cop/
    Sounds to me like getting her out of the house and away from the kids for a discussion about the case, but what do I know?

    And somehow Derek A. gets this info and it is a date (one that Chrissie's attorney denies). Hmmm
