    Drew Peterson Guilty!

    [​IMG]

    The murder trial of former Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson came to a close Thursday with the delivery of a guilty verdict from the jury.

    After nearly 14 hours of deliberations, jurors announced Thursday afternoon that they had found Peterson guilty in the death of Kathleen Savio, his third wife.

    Peterson, 58, pleaded not guilty to murdering Savio, whose body was found in a dry bathtub in 2004. He remains the lone suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy Peterson.

    I dont see the big deal,the media has been marketing him as guilty for years before the jury was selected. There is no juror on any jury in the U.S. that is not already tainted by the media in some way.

    He may well be 100% guilty!

    However they got a conviction on hearsay, which opens the way for an appeal case battle royal!

    If Drew Peterson can raise the money to pay for top legal counsel he could yet get this verdict overturned!

    Yeah, a hearsay law that was put in place specifically for this trial. It's good to know that if they can't produce evidence that you're guilty, they can simply make new laws to ensure you are convicted. Now that is American justice.

    Following is a statement posted to the Facebook page of Tom Peterson, Drew Peterson's son:

    "To say the least...I'm extremely disappointed. During the past 5 years...I got to see full grown adults act like children, and now they are parading around my front door.

    Who do I have left? Who do my siblings have left? Oh yeah...the pastor, the lawyer, my aunts, and all of my mom's friends who LISTENED to my mother's pleas and DIDN'T do anything about it.

    Now she is dead, and you went forth to break the Constitution to blame my dad. I'm sorry, but that doesn't seem very believable to me...but since the rest of the world thinks otherwise, this is your fault, you should have come forward earlier.

    Now, I have a broken family without a salary, and some woman who sees it important to bully me over the internet because of my Dad. I hope you are all happy."
