Last Chance For Drew Peterson to Dodge Prison Sentence For Wife Slay

If Drew Peterson doesn't win his hearing for a new murder trial this week, the judge is packing him off to prison.

"Drew Peterson has one more shot to dodge a trip to Stateville, and it all comes down to a hearing scheduled to start Tuesday morning.

After more than three and a half years in the Will County jail and a five-week trial that wrapped up in September, the disgraced former Bolingbrook cop's lawyers will try to convince Judge Edward Burmila to give him a do-over.

And that's not all—matters from a wrongful death lawsuit filed against Peterson by his slain third wife's family will be shoehorned into the proceedings. And one of Peterson's current attorneys, Steve Greenberg, expects to argue that Judge Burmila should sanction former Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky.

But wait—there's more"...:

Will County prosecutor Glasgow still searching for Stacy Peterson

" ◆ Translation: Sneed has learned that Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow has not given up his pursuit of convicted murderer Drew Peterson’s missing fourth wife, Stacy.

Sneed hears Glasgow plans to convene a summit of his legal eagles to revisit Stacy’s case in hopes of charging Peterson with her murder — and is preparing to announce that the $100,000 reward for information leading to Stacy’s whereabouts is still available.

◆ Set shot: “Now that Peterson is serving a 38-year sentence at the Pontiac Correctional Center for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, perhaps someone who has evidence — but was afraid to come forward because they feared Peterson would get off — will now contact us,” Glasgow told Sneed.

◆ Penalty shot: “I have been in touch with Jeff Ruby, the restaurateur from Cincinnati who offered the $100,000 reward before the Peterson trial, and he is willing to keep the reward going until we find Stacy,” he said."

Judge refers ex-Peterson attorney's remarks to disciplinary panel

Denies defense team's motions to reduce sentence and gag Joel Brodsky, but calls former lead lawyer's public statements shocking



By Steve Schmadeke, Chicago Tribune reporter
6:30 a.m. CST, March 6, 2013



The judge who oversaw the Drew Peterson murder trial said in court Tuesday that he was shocked by some public statements made by Peterson's former lead attorney and would bring them to the attention of the state's disciplinary body for lawyers.

Judge Edward Burmila denied motions by Peterson's defense team to reduce his 38-year sentence to the minimum of 20 years and to silence former Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky regarding the case, said Charles Pelkie, a spokesman for the Will County state's attorney's office.

Although Burmila denied the motion on Brodsky, he ordered the court clerk to send a transcript of the hearing to the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, Pelkie said. The judge was concerned about statements Brodsky made on WGN-TV after the sentencing, Pelkie said.

Convicted killer Drew Peterson fears for life in prison, report says

"Convicted murderer Drew Peterson now fears for his own life as he serves his 38-year prison sentence in an Illinois prison, according to letters written to his attorney and obtained by MyFoxChicago.com."
“I’m in a cell the size of a broom closet, peeling paint, rusting fixtures, I have no TV or anything and I haven’t been out since I got here,”

Appeals court upholds firing of Drew Peterson's son

Drew Peterson’s son deserved to lose his police badge for his actions after the 2007 disappearance of Peterson’s young wife, a state appellate court has affirmed.

Stephen Peterson, 34, was fired from the Oak Brook Police Department in 2011 after officials ruled that he failed to disclose important information and demonstrated poor judgment during an Illinois State Police investigation into the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, his father's fourth wife.

In one instance, Stephen Peterson did not tell authorities that his father gave him checks totaling $236,800 shortly after Stacy disappeared or that Drew made his adult son promise to take care of his school-age siblings if anything happened to him.

Drew’s back: Ex-Bolingbrook cop set for trial — again

"Drew Peterson once warned a judge, “I don’t do well in incarceration.” He made the comment in February 2013, having already spent nearly four years in solitary confinement. Within moments, the judge would sentence him to 38 years in prison for the 2004 murder of his third wife — a sentence Peterson has mostly served in downstate Menard Correctional Center, home to Illinois’ most violent criminals."

"But before he was sent to languish in the Randolph County prison on the bank of the Mississippi River, the brash and cocky former Bolingbrook cop growled at Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. The wife killer told the man who personally led his prosecution to “never forget my face; never forget what you have done here.” And within a year, from behind bars, Peterson would allegedly try to have Glasgow killed."

Drew Found Guilty

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime...-have-prosecutor-killed/ar-BBtI0qS?li=BBnb7Kz

Drew Peterson was found guilty Tuesday of trying to hire a hit man to kill the prosecutor who put him behind bars for murder. The jury deliberated for about an hour before finding Peterson guilty of solicitation of murder for hire and solicitation of murder.

The charges carry a prison sentence of up to 60 years.

Peterson sat hunched over, his head leaning on his left hand with his elbow on the defense table as the verdict was read by the judge. Peterson showed no visible reaction to the verdict. As Peterson left the courtroom, he glanced at Cassandra Cales — the sister of Peterson's missing wife, Stacy Peterson — and murmured something unintelligible.

Last summer marked the end of Drew Peterson's pension payments, which Stephen said he had used to support the family after he lost his job in 2011. The day after Stephen Peterson learned that source of support would be cut off, he said he got a call from producers of the Lifetime show, "Monster in my Family."

"The time was right," he said.

Though he has declined interviews in the past, Peterson said he needed the $10,000 he received for doing the show, which also featured interviews with relatives of Savio and Stacy Peterson. The show focused on Drew Peterson's four marriages, his infidelity, Savio's death and the circumstances surrounding Stacy's disappearance.
