Drew Peterson sentenced to 38 years
3:39 p.m. CST, February 21, 2013

Moments after he screamed in court, "I did not kill Kathleen," Drew Peterson was sentenced to 38 years in prison for the 2004 murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio.

Peterson had faced as much as 60 years, but Judge Edward Burmila said he gave Peterson some consideration for his years as a police officer and his service in the military.
 
The sentence was handed down after Peterson, who did not testify at this trial, made an emotional appeal to the judge, at times appearing to choke up.
 
Peterson began by telling the judge, "Good day, my name is Drew Peterson. I hope I don't aggravate the situation here, but I have a lot of things to be said." Then he screamed, "I did not kill Kathleen!"

"Yes, you did," a woman said.

"Ma'am, I'd like you to leave the courtroom," Burmila said. "And Mr. Peterson, don't make any outbursts that are designed to aggravate people."

"I'm sorry, your honor. I must have been woozy," Peterson said.

Drew Peterson transferred to Pontiac prison
8:18 p.m. CST, February 22, 2013

Drew Peterson’s new life as an Illinois Department of Corrections inmate has begun.
 
Peterson was transferred this morning to the Stateville Correctional Center near Crest Hill, where he was evaluated for placement based upon factors such as his conviction, length of sentence, program needs and medical and mental health requirements.
 
Peterson stayed at Stateville only a few hours before being sent to his new home at Pontiac prison northeast of Bloomington, a maximum security facility that has a protective custody unit.  The assignment was based upon factors such as his conviction, length of sentence, program needs and medical and mental health requirements, per Illinois Department of Correction protocol.

Officials have not said whether he has a cellmate or if he will be in solitary confinement like he had been during his jail stay.
 
As part of his daily routine there, he will remain in his cell for most of the day, though he will be allowed out for meals and showers. Most inmates also get about five hours of recreation time outside per week, Illinois Department of Corrections spokesman Stacey Solano said

Drew Peterson moved to Menard prison, 3rd prison since sentencing
6:41 p.m. CST, February 28, 2013

Drew Peterson has been relocated to his third prison in less than a week.
 
The former Bolingbrook police sergeant is now at Menard Correctional Center, a maximum security facility that is currently on lockdown because of a recent assault on staff members.
 
Peterson, 59, was sentenced to 38 years in prison last week for murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004. Since his sentencing, he has had stops at both Stateville and Pontiac prisons.

An Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman would not comment on the reason for his transfer today to Menard, which is located in downstate Randolph County. The facility is regarded as one of the toughest prisons in the state, but his attorneys say incarceration is difficult regardless of the location.

Drew Peterson Judge Sends Joel Brodsky to Disciplinary Commission
1:11 pm

The judge in the Drew Peterson murder case said he was "shocked" by the behavior of attorney Joel Brodsky in the aftermath of the convicted wife-killer's sentencing last month.

"I've never seen an attorney comport himself the way Mr. Brodsky did," Judge Edward Burmila said during a Tuesday morning hearing at the Will County Courthouse.

And Brodsky's law license may be in jeopardy now that Judge Burmila is alerting the state's Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission to Brodsky's antics.

After Peterson was hit with a 38-year prison sentence for murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, his former attorney, Joel Brodsky, did a WGN Morning News interview and blamed Peterson for moves he made at the trial.

Judge Burmila first said he was shocked when he watched the interview, then later said, "I wish I could think of a word beyond 'shocked' to apply to Mr. Brodsky's appearance on television."

Other lawyers on Peterson's defense team have blamed Brodsky for blowing the trial. They made Brodsky's allegedly poor performance—both inside and out of the courtroom—the basis of a push to get Peterson a new murder trial.

Police board hires expert in effort to strip Drew Peterson of pension
By Stacy St. Clair - Chicago Tribune
Created: Wednesday, March 6, 2013 10:43 a.m. CST
Updated: Wednesday, March 6, 2013 10:55 a.m. CST

CHICAGO (MCT) — Drew Peterson officially lost his freedom last month — and now he could lose his pension, too.

The Bolingbrook (Ill.) Police Pension Board has hired an outside attorney to help decide whether it should strip Peterson of his retirement pay following his murder conviction and sentencing. The move marks an ironic turn in the high-profile case, given that prosecutors argued that Peterson killed his third wife, Kathleen Savio, partially because he did not want to share his pension with her.

The five-member panel — which includes three current or former officers who worked on the force with Peterson — recently retained public pension expert Charles Atwell to review trial transcripts and determine whether the former police sergeant’s conviction requires him to forfeit his $79,000-a-year pension.

Bolingbrook officials will figure out their next step, if any, after they receive Atwell’s report, pension board attorney Richard Reimer said.

Under state law, the board could revoke Peterson’s pension if it finds he used his law enforcement powers or skills to drown Savio in 2004. His pension cannot be stripped without a public hearing in which Peterson could call witnesses and board members would act almost like jurors.

Peterson attorney accepts 3-month law license suspension to settle disciplinary charges
April 29, 2013

One of Drew Peterson's attorneys has agreed to have his law license suspended for three months to settle state disciplinary charges alleging he stole another client's money, records show.

David Peilet, who joined Peterson's defense team last fall to assist with the post-trial appeal after the former Bolingbrook police sergeant was found guilty of drowning his third wife, was accused last April of pocketing almost $4,000 in client money from a 2010 drug case.
 ::snipping2::
The ARDC charges were brought before Peilet joined Peterson's defense team. Another attorney on Peterson's team, former lead counsel Joel Brodsky, was reported to the ARDC by the judge who oversaw the Peterson murder trial.

That judge, Edward Burmila, was concerned about remarks Brodsky made to WGN-TV after Peterson was convicted.

No charges against Brodsky, whom a Cook County judge also reported to the ARDC last week in a separate civil case, have been publicly filed by the disciplinary agency. The attorney is suing the Tribune for defamation.

Drew filing in lawsuit jabs former lawyer  
May 23, 2013 4:06PM
Updated: May 23, 2013 7:53PM
 
Drew Peterson’s shot at beating a murder rap was derailed by shoddy legal representation and a trial that was more like a “highly suspect sideshow,” according to a new filing in a lawsuit against Peterson by the family of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

The filing, by Chicago attorney John Heiderscheidt, is a response to a motion for a summary judgment filed last year by the Savio family. Savio’s sister and father filed the wrongful death lawsuit in April 2009.
 ::snipping3::
A hearing on the motion for summary judgment to resolve the lawsuit is scheduled for June 13 in Will County.

Drew Peterson Reunion: Court Supervision
July 3, 2013 at 01:58 pm

Drew Peterson got all sorts of good news this week.

For one thing, he might have as much as $100 waiting for him at the state treasurer's office. And for another, three of the attorneys who represented him in one capacity or another over the years have signed on to appeal his murder conviction.

Steve Greenberg, David Peilet and John Heiderscheidt requested leave to file an appearance in the case.

Greenberg represented Peterson during his murder trial last summer. Peilet was part of Peterson's defense team during the post-conviction push to win a new trial. Heiderscheidt represents Peterson in a civil wrongful death case brought against him by relatives of his slain third wife, Kathleen Savio.

The three attorneys want to take the case from the state appellate defender's office.

Peterson is serving a 38-year sentence at Menard Correctional Center for Savio's murder.

Thank you for the update, grace-land.  I haven't heard that much about Drew Peterson in the news lately.  I guess it would be wishful thinking on my part he had been locked up, they threw away the key and he's forgotten for the last 50 years or so.  He is very egotistical imo, and the less press he gets, the better.  His lawyers are dirtbags, imo.

Drew Peterson Has Unclaimed Money Waiting With State Treasurer
July 1, 2013 at 05:19 pm

Drew Peterson killed his third wife before she could get her share in their divorce, and now he's in the clear to collect a check made out to the two of them and waiting to be claimed from the state treasurer's office.

The cashier's check for Peterson and his third wife, Kathleen Savio, is listed on the Illinois State Treasurer's I-Cash program database. The check is from West Suburban Bank and is for between $10 and $100.
 ::snipping3::
Stacy Peterson does not have any unclaimed assets listed on the treasurer's office database, but her father, Anthony Cales, and missing mother, Christie Cales, have more than $100 in "other amounts due" from American States Insurance Company.

If Drew Peterson does collect his check, it will augment the more than $6,000 per month he receives in pension from his time as a Bolingbrook police officer.

Drew Peterson hires several previous attorneys for appeal
July 5, 2013

 ::snipping3::
Peterson intends to appeal his conviction based on several factors, including the admissibility of hearsay statements used against him during the trial and whether the judge erred when he allowed Stacy's pastor to testify about conversations she had with him, Greenberg said. He also will challenge the court's decision to keep the jury pool intact for two years in light of the intense publicity surrounding the trial and made-for-TV movie about the case.

The appeal is expected to accuse former lead defense attorney Joel Brodsky of ineffective counsel as well. The trial judge dismissed that claim before sentencing, saying that Peterson received adequate representation.

Peterson's team is expected to file the appeal within the next 90 days.

Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow has repeatedly said the conviction will withstand any appeals.

In the meantime, Peterson remains incarcerated at Menard, a maximum-security prison that had been on lockdown for much of the spring because of an assault on staff. He is in protective custody there, meaning he does not mix with the general population.

"He's keeping a low profile," Greenberg said.

Peterson does not have a cellmate or job inside the prison, Illinois Department of Corrections spokesman Tom Shaer said. He receives five hours of recreation time outside his cell each week and also leaves to shower.

He receives his breakfast at 3:30 a.m. and his lunch at 10 a.m. each day. Both are eaten inside his cell because other inmates are outside their cells for those times, and protective custody can't be maintained using normal security procedures, Shaer said.

Peterson leaves his cell at 2 p.m. each day for his evening meal.

‘Joel Brodsky’ Tweet Takes Shot at Drew Peterson Lawyers
July 8, 2013 at 07:40 pm

Former Drew Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky didn’t get to be part of the wife-killer’s appeal team, but someone has taken to a Twitter account in his name to insult the lawyers still on the case.

“Poor Drew, now he's got a pathological narcissist, an alcoholic, and a novice, for his appellate lawyers #drewpeterson,” reads a tweet sent from the account “Joel A. Brodsky Esq.” The tweet was sent to the account’s 39 followers at 11:35 p.m. on the Fourth of July.

The tweet also included a link to a news account of attorneys taking Peterson’s case from the state’s appellate defender’s office.

Attorneys Steve Greenberg, David Peilet and John Heiderscheidt last week requested leave to file an appearance in Peterson’s case. Greenberg represented Peterson, 59, during his murder trial last summer. Peilet was part of Peterson's defense team during the post-conviction push to win a new trial. Heiderscheidt represents Peterson in a pending wrongful death case brought against him by relatives of his slain third wife, Kathleen Savio.

Brodsky answered a phone call made to his office Monday afternoon. When asked about his Twitter account he hung up.

It is not clear which of the three attorneys is supposed to be the narcissist, the alcoholic or the novice.

Savio attorney wants ruling in Drew Peterson lawsuit
Friday, August 16, 2013

August 16, 2013 (JOLIET, Ill.) (WLS) --  The family of Drew Peterson's third wife has asked a Will County judge to rule in their favor in a wrongful death lawsuit they've filed again the imprisoned former police officer.

The Herald-News reports that an attorney representing Kathleen Savio's family made the request on Thursday. The attorney said the judge should rule in the Savios' favor without a trial. Judge Michael Powers said he would make a decision within 30 days.

Convicted killer Drew Peterson fears for life in prison, report says
Published September 07, 2013
FoxNews.com

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.

“Joel, did you ever feel that something was going to happen before it does? I feel I’m going to die in here. If the inmates don’t get me I’m gonna be killed by the cruel guards,” the former police officer wrote in a letter Brodsky shared with MyFoxChicago.com.

Peterson started writing letters to his attorney Joel Brodsky after his February sentencing for the killing of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. He is currently being held in protective custody and has complained of the "nightmarish," conditions.

Judge continues wrongful death suit vs. Peterson  
September 30, 2013 7:40PM
Updated: October 1, 2013 2:35AM
 
A Will County judge has denied motions that could have closed the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of Kathleen Savio against imprisoned former Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson.

Circuit Court Judge Michael Powers denied the motions for summary judgement — which is a decision by the judge without a trial — that were filed by the attorney for the estate of Savio, Peterson’s third wife, and by Peterson’s attorney. Powers set an Oct. 24 status hearing on the lawsuit.

In December 2012, the Savio estate’s lawyer filed the motion because of Peterson’s murder conviction that September and because a Will County judge found after a 2010 court hearing that prosecutors had established that Peterson likely killed Savio, 40, in her Bolingbrook house in March 2004.

During that hearing on the use of hearsay evidence, Peterson’s uncle, James Carroll, admitted that he turned all of Savio’s estate’s assets over to Peterson after she died, at Peterson’s request, according to the motion.

Peterson appeal should see movement in 2014
5:48 p.m. CST, December 25, 2013

Drew Peterson is expected to formally challenge his conviction next month — and his attorneys apparently have plenty to say about it.

Peterson's lawyers recently submitted their third request for permission to exceed the 50-page limit imposed on appeal briefs in Illinois — only to be swiftly denied by the 3rd District Appellate Court for the third time.

In a motion filed this month, Peterson's attorneys said his case has generated more than 11,000 pages of court records, including 3,000 pages stemming from the landmark hearsay hearing held two years before his murder trial. The trial transcript contains more than 5,000 pages, according to the filing.

The 3rd District also prohibits defendants from using more than 15 pages to outline the facts of the case, a limit that Peterson's lawyers say is unfair given the history of the headline-grabbing legal drama.

Drew Peterson's attorneys prepare appeal
Updated at 05:17 PM today

 ::snipping3::
Greenberg says the appeal is based on two issues. First, Greenberg believes Pastor Neil Shori should never been allowed to testify based on privileged information.

Second, a big part appeal is based on ineffective counsel. Former Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky's decision to call Kathleen Savio's divorce attorney Harry Smith to the stand proved to be a huge mistake and some jurors said Smith's testimony was the tipping point to a guilty verdict. However, some experts argue ineffective counsel won't hold water because Peterson was represented by several attorneys, including Greenberg.

"When you're talking about ineffective assistance, it's the consequences of counsels actions that matter, it doesn't matter if he had one attorney or six attorneys," Greenberg said.

Former lawyer for Peterson faces new discipline charge
6:08 p.m. CST, January 10, 2014

A onetime attorney for Drew Peterson whose law license was suspended in October faces a new disciplinary charge from the state for allegedly mismanaging a client's criminal appeal.

David Peilet joined Peterson's defense team after the former Bolingbrook police sergeant was convicted in 2012 of drowning Kathleen Savio, his third wife. Peilet said Friday he has not been involved in the case since Peterson was sentenced last February to 38 years in prison.

Peterson's attorneys are expected to file an appeal Monday or Tuesday arguing for a new trial based on alleged ineffective assistance of council from Peterson's former lead attorney, Joel Brodsky.

Attorney Steve Greenberg said the appeal was sent in Monday — a day before the 3rd District Appellate Court's deadline.

Peterson lawyers cite attorney, judge mistakes in appeal
January 14, 2014

Drew Peterson continued the uphill battle to overturn his murder conviction this week, as his lawyers filed an appeal arguing that both his former defense attorney and the trial judge made mistakes that prejudiced the jury against him.

In a filing mailed to the 3rd District Appellate Court late Monday, Peterson's team states that Will County Judge Edward Burmila erred when he admitted controversial hearsay evidence and allowed a pastor to testify about conversations he had with Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy. It also criticizes Burmila for permitting divorce attorney Harry Smith to testify about a telephone call in which Stacy indicated Drew had killed his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

These errors, taken in their totality, stripped Peterson of his right to a fair trial, the appeal states.

"It is important to note at the onset that the state did not present a single eyewitness, physical evidence linking Drew with Kathleen's body, forensic evidence linking Drew with Kathleen's body, or a confession from Drew," the appeal states. "And while it is true there is no magic formula for a murder conviction, at least one of these pieces of evidence is usually present where an appellate court upholds murder convictions."

Peterson, 60, was sentenced last year to 38 years in prison for murdering Savio in 2004. He remains the only suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy, whose case prompted authorities to reopen the Savio investigation. He denies harming either woman.

The 55-page appeal also accuses former lead defense attorney Joel Brodsky of ineffective counsel. In addition to criticism for calling Smith as a defense witness, it also accused Brodsky of putting his own desire for publicity ahead of Peterson's best interests.

Brodsky has repeatedly denied the claims. Burmila also dismissed the allegations before sentencing, saying Peterson received adequate representation.

To win an ineffective counsel claim, Peterson must show his representation fell below acceptable standards and the outcome might have been different because of it. It will be an arduous task, however, given that he had five other attorneys on the trial team, and that appellate courts rarely overturn convictions based on legal strategies.

Ex-Drew Peterson lawyer drops libel lawsuit against Tribune, others
January 18, 2014

One of convicted murderer Drew Peterson's former attorneys on Friday dropped his libel lawsuit against another Peterson lawyer, Tribune Co. and other defendants.

Joel Brodsky had alleged in his lawsuit that a letter written by attorney Steven Greenberg and provided to the Chicago Tribune and other media contained "false and misleading" material that defamed him by portraying him as a liar and an incompetent lawyer. Brodsky alleged that the letter was an effort by Greenberg to blame him for Peterson's conviction in September 2012 for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
 ::snipping3::
In his motion, Brodsky said his attorney had a series of health setbacks and he might refile the lawsuit within a year.

Drew Peterson facing loss of police pension
11:42 a.m. CST, January 24, 2014

Drew Peterson soon could find himself fighting to keep his pension, as an investigator hired by the Bolingbrook Police Pension Fund has found there's enough evidence to begin forfeiture proceedings against the retired sergeant.           

Attorney Charles Atwell forwarded his decision after a nine-month review that included examining court transcripts and other records to determine whether Peterson’s murder conviction meant he should be stripped of his pension. In a brief letter sent to village officials the earlier this month, Atwell said state statutes would support holding a hearing to consider terminating the benefit.

Under Illinois law, the board could revoke Peterson’s $79,000-a-year pension if it finds he used his law-enforcement powers or skills to drown his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004.

Bolingbrook board agrees to hearing on Drew Peterson's pension
Published: Thursday, March 20, 2014 5:26 p.m. CDT

BOLINGBROOK – Drew Peterson doesn't think being convicted of murdering his third wife is a reason to strip him of his pension.

But the Police Pension Board unanimously agreed Thursday to hold a hearing that could do just that.

Last year, the five-member board questioned whether Peterson's conviction terminated his pension rights by committing a "job-related felony," board attorney Richard Reimer said.

The board hired Charles Atwell, another lawyer who specializes in pension funds, to review transcripts and evidence from Peterson's trial. In January, Reimer and board members received a one-page report from Atwell saying there are sufficient grounds for cutting Peterson's pension.

Illinois Prosecutors Respond to Drew Peterson Appeal
Thursday, Nov 6, 2014 • Updated at 3:48 PM CST

Prosecutors have asked a court to reject former police officer Drew Peterson's appeal of his murder conviction.

The Will County state's attorney's office says it filed a 60-page brief Thursday morning with Illinois' Third District Appellate Court in in Ottawa.

•Court Upholds Firing Of Drew Peterson's Son

Peterson gained notoriety after his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007. He was convicted in 2012 of killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio, and sentenced to 38 years in prison.

Peterson's legal team filed their 55-page appeal in January. It argues prosecutors had no physical evidence tying Peterson to Savio's death and no witnesses placing him at the scene.

RANDOLPH COUNTY, IL – Drew Peterson has been charged with solicitation of murder and murder for hire in an Illinois courtroom Monday morning.  He is accused of tying to hire someone to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glascow, the lead prosecutor in Peterson’s 2012 murder trial. We are trying to determine if Peterson tried to engineer the crime from prison.

The Randolph County State’s Attorney writes in a statement to the media, “The charges allege that between September 2013 and December 2014, the defendant solicited an individual to carry out a murder-for-hire plot against Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. The defendant made an initial appearance on the charges today at the Randolph County Courthouse. A preliminary hearing is set for March 3 at 10am.”

Prosecutors: Drew Peterson tried to have Will County state's attorney killed
February 9, 2015, 12:16 PM

 ::snipping3::
Peterson attorney Steve Greenberg said Monday morning that neither he nor Peterson's family had been informed of any charges. He called the idea of Peterson trying to retaliate against Glasgow "absurd."
 
"Drew would have nothing to gain and everything to lose by doing that," Greenberg said. "And prosecutors say he's the most careful criminal ever, don't they?"

Greenberg said Peterson has had trouble with inmates and guards at Menard, a maximum-security prison known for its lockdowns and myriad other problems.

Peterson, 61, was sentenced in 2013 to 38 years in prison for murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004. The case is currently on appeal.
 ::snipping3::
The Bolingbrook police pension board is currently deciding whether to strip Peterson of his $79,000-a-year pension – an ironic move given that prosecutors argued he killed Savio and caused Stacy Peterson’s disappearance so they would not receive a cut of his pension.

BOLINGBROOK - Drew Peterson's monthly $6,000 pension could be taken away if board members believe he used his police training to kill his third wife.

The Bolingbrook Police Pension Board began a hearing Friday to see if Peterson terminated his pension rights by committing a felony related to his job.

Peterson, who served as a Bolingbrook officer from 1977 to 2007, did not attend the hearing. He was convicted in 2012 of murdering Kathleen Savio. Savio was found dead in a bathtub in March 2004. Her drowning was initially ruled accidental, but the case was re-opened when Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy, disappeared in October 2007.

Charles Atwell, a lawyer who specializes in pension funds, said it doesn't matter whether Peterson was on-duty when Savio's life ended, but whether he used his access and training in crime scene investigation and interrogation techniques to set up "the whole scheme."

Published: Wednesday, June 10, 2015 4:28 p.m. CDT • Updated: Wednesday, June 10, 2015 10:59 p.m. CDT

BOLINGBROOK — The Bolingbrook Police Pension Board voted unanimously Wednesday to compel Drew Peterson to provide a deposition in a case determining whether his pension should be stripped from him.

If it is decided the former Bolingbrook police officer used his police training to kill his third wife, his annual $79,000 police pension could be taken away.

On Wednesday, the five-member Pension Board denied a motion by Peterson's attorney, Steven Greenberg, to quash the evidence deposition for Peterson.

Charles Atwell, a lawyer who specializes in pension funds, said Wednesday he's pleased with the outcome. Atwell, who filed the initial motion to compel Peterson's deposition, said he wants Peterson to testify "as part of [Peterson's] burden of proof" in the pension hearing.

But Greenberg said Peterson has a right to cite his Fifth Amendment rights when deposed. Whether he answers any questions will be up to Peterson, he said. It's also possible Peterson will refuse to participate, he said.

Drew Peterson's murder conviction is upheld; prosecutor calls it 'vindication'
November 13, 2015

Drew Peterson's conviction and prison sentence for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, were affirmed by the Illinois Appellate Court, which said the circumstantial evidence against him proved he had the motive and the opportunity to commit the crime.

The court, in an 87-page ruling, said the evidence against the retired police sergeant was "sufficient" to show he killed Savio, who was found dead in the bathtub of her Bolingbrook home in 2004. The medical evidence, the court wrote, made clear that Savio had been murdered, while "the remaining circumstantial evidence and the reasonable inferences therefrom" proved that Peterson was her killer.

The court also upheld Peterson's 38-year sentence, which means he will not be paroled until May 2047, when he would be 93.

Drew Peterson's murder conviction is upheld; prosecutor calls it 'vindication'
November 13, 2015

Drew Peterson's conviction and prison sentence for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, were affirmed by the Illinois Appellate Court, which said the circumstantial evidence against him proved he had the motive and the opportunity to commit the crime.

The court, in an 87-page ruling, said the evidence against the retired police sergeant was "sufficient" to show he killed Savio, who was found dead in the bathtub of her Bolingbrook home in 2004. The medical evidence, the court wrote, made clear that Savio had been murdered, while "the remaining circumstantial evidence and the reasonable inferences therefrom" proved that Peterson was her killer.

The court also upheld Peterson's 38-year sentence, which means he will not be paroled until May 2047, when he would be 93.

Drew Peterson appeals murder conviction to state Supreme Court
January 19, 2016, 6:47 PM

Two months after state appellate justices rejected his appeal, Drew Peterson is asking Illinois' highest court to toss out his conviction for the notorious murder of his third wife.

Lawyers for the imprisoned former Bolingbrook police sergeant filed the lengthy appeal Tuesday to the Illinois Supreme Court. Peterson argues he was denied a fair trial due to the use of so-called hearsay statements, as well as other alleged critical errors, during court proceedings in Will County.
 ::snipping3::
Brodsky, who no longer represents Peterson, told the Tribune the high court appeal "has no chance."

"The (appellate court) opinion clearly shows that the case against Drew Peterson was not just based on hearsay, but was in fact a circumstantial case which was expertly tried by the prosecution and the defense," he said. "The appellate court found that the trial was error free, which is very rare."

As his appeal continues, Peterson is also accused of trying to hire someone to kill Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow, who successfully prosecuted Peterson in Savio's death. Glasgow also has named Peterson as the sole suspect in Stacy Peterson's still-unsolved disappearance. She was 23 at the time of her disappearance; her 32nd birthday is Wednesday.

Peterson, 62, has denied involvement.

He is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 8 for the alleged murder-for-hire plot in Randolph County, which is home to Menard Correctional Center, where Peterson has been held since he was sentenced more than two years ago. His trial is expected this year.

Illinois Supreme Court to hear Drew Peterson appeal on '12 murder conviction
March 30, 2016, 7:11 PM

Illinois' highest court agreed Wednesday to hear an appeal in the case of Drew Peterson, who is asking the court to toss out his 2012 conviction in the notorious murder of his third wife.

The Illinois Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal Wednesday, said Bethany Krajelis, the court’s spokeswoman.

"It means that maybe someone's finally gonna listen," said Steven Greenberg, an attorney for Peterson. "I don't think they would say, 'We're gonna hear the case,' if they didn't think there was a problem. Clearly, they think there was some problem."
 ::snipping3::
The Third District Appellate Court in Ottawa, in an unanimous Nov. 12 opinion, upheld the 38-year prison term and declared it found no trial errors and that evidence against Peterson was "sufficient" to show he killed Savio, 40, in 2004.

Drew Peterson set to return to court for murder-for-hire trial

Chicago Tribune
By Matthew Walberg


CHICAGO — Nearly four years ago, Drew Peterson watched as potential jurors in a Joliet courtroom answered questions about their fitness to determine whether Peterson was guilty of killing his third wife.

Since then, Peterson has waged war on two fronts — the first to have his murder conviction tossed, and the second, authorities allege, to exact revenge on the prosecutor who led the effort to put him behind bars.

On Friday, jurors will again file into a courtroom, this time in the tiny Randolph County Courthouse in Chester where Peterson is to stand trial on charges he attempted to find a hit man to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow.

Drew Peterson found guilty in murder-for-hire plot

Published May 31, 2016

CHESTER, Ill. –  Jurors have found former suburban Chicago police officer Drew Peterson guilty of trying to hire someone to kill the prosecutor who helped convict him in his third wife's death.

Jurors reached the verdict Tuesday afternoon after deliberating for little more than an hour.

Peterson was accused of trying to hire a fellow inmate's uncle to kill Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow. Peterson is serving a 38-year sentence in ex-wife Kathleen Savio's death and faces up to 60 more years in prison.

The Bolingbrook Police Pension Board on Wednesday voted unanimously to pull Peterson’s $79,000-per-year pension, a decision that came nearly four years after Peterson was convicted of murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, and the village first moved to cut off his payouts, board attorney Richard Reimer told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Jailhouse recordings in Drew Peterson murder-for-hire case released
Tuesday, June 07, 2016 06:51PM

Hours of jailhouse and courtroom recordings in Drew Peterson's murder-for-hire case were released Tuesday and reveal Drew Peterson talking about everything from murder to birthday cards from female admirers.

Peterson was convicted May 31 of plotting the murder of Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow.

The newly released recordings reveal several sides of Drew Peterson.

In a 2013 recording, just before Peterson was sentenced for murdering his third wife Kathleen Savio, there was an outburst in open court:

Judge: Say whatever you choose.
Drew Peterson: I've been forced to stay silent since the beginning of all this. I did not kill Kathleen!
Victim's sister: Yes you did!
Judge: There won't be any comments from the audience.
Victim's sister: Liar.
Judge: Ma'am. Ma'am. I'd like you to leave the courtroom.

While Savio's sister was ejected from the courtroom, their family took comfort in knowing Peterson was headed to prison for 36 years.

Ex-Illinois policeman sentenced to 40 years in murder-for-hire -report

Reuters


1 hr ago

Drew Peterson, a former Chicago-area police officer who is in prison for murdering his wife, was sentenced on Friday to an additional 40 years for trying to hire someone to kill the prosecutor who convicted him, Illinois' attorney general said.


Peterson, 62, is serving a 38-year sentence for the 2004 murder of Kathleen Savio, his third wife, a case that was made into a television movie starring Rob Lowe.

In May he was found guilty of solicitation of murder and solicitation of murder for hire when a jury agreed he had plotted in 2014 to find someone to kill James Glasgow, the Will County state's attorney who prosecuted him in the case of his wife's murder.

Randolph County Judge Richard Brown handed down the sentence on Friday against Peterson, who faced up to 70 years for the two solicitation crimes.   ::monkeyscissors::

Illinois Supreme Court hears Drew Peterson appeal
Tuesday, November 15, 2016 05:44PM

CHICAGO (WLS) --
The Illinois Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday on Drew Peterson's appeal of his conviction for the death of his third wife Kathleen Savio.
 ::snipping3::
Peterson, whose fourth wife Stacy is presumed dead, but whose body was never found, was convicted of Savio's murder in large measure thanks to incriminating statements Stacy made before her disappearance. Though generally inadmissible, a 2010 hearsay law known as Drew's Law, allows witnesses to essentially speak from beyond the grave.

"We don't want it to be just an exception for Drew Peterson. We want to make sure all defendants are treated fairly. And in this case, the state bent over backwards to say that Drew Peterson was not entitled to the same kind of protections that other criminal defendants should expect and are entitled to," said Harold Krent, defense attorney.
 ::snipping3::
There is no timeline for the Illinois Supreme Court to render a decision. Peterson's defense attorneys said they're hopeful to have an answer by next spring.

Drew Peterson Transferred To Federal Prison In Terre Haute
February 21, 2017 1:28 PM

CHICAGO (CBS) — Convicted killer Drew Peterson, serving a total of 78 years in prison, was transferred out of state custody on Tuesday to a federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind.

“Drew Peterson (Reg. No. 07018-748) is in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons at the United States Penitentiary in Terre Haute,” said Jill Tyson, spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The reason for the move from state to federal custody has not been released.

But CBS 2 Legal Analyst Irv Miller said there are several possible reasons.

“His own security, they can’t protect him. Two, he’s a witness on a federal case that we don’t know about. Or three, he’s been indicted himself,” Miller said.

“Drew Peterson has been transferred out of IDOC custody. For safety and security purposes, the IDOC does not discuss details concerning the placement of offenders who are transferred under the terms of the Interstate Compact Agreement,” Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman Nicole Wilson said in an email.

WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller has been told Peterson was transferred to federal custody, but it’s not yet clear why.

Attorney: Drew Peterson ‘Probably Better Off’ In Federal Prison
February 22, 2017 11:06 AM

CHICAGO (CBS) — The reason for convicted wife killer Drew Peterson’s transfer from an Illinois prison to a federal facility in Indiana remained a mystery on Wednesday, but his attorney said whatever the basis might be, the former Bolingbrook police officer is “probably better off.”

Peterson, 63, recently was moved from the Menard Correctional Center in southern Illinois to the Stateville Northern Reception and Classification Center, which is used for processing prisoner transfers in Illinois. On Tuesday, he was transferred from state custody to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, and taken to FCI Terre Haute, a medium-security prison in Indiana.

Peterson’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, said he was in the dark about the move until he saw news reports Tuesday afternoon.

“As a lawyer, we don’t want to say we’re clueless. I have no idea why they moved him,” Greenberg said. “Never have seen this before in my 30 years of doing this. Never.”

He said the move from a 140-year-old state facility with non-air-conditioned cells to federal prison in Indiana is actually a step up.

“For Drew, he’s probably better off in a federal facility,” he said.

Drew Peterson moved to high security due to 'high maintenance'
Thursday, February 23, 2017

TERRE HAUTE, Ind., (WLS) -- On Tuesday, former Bolingbrook police sergeant, Drew Peterson, was suddenly moved from the Illinois Department of Corrections to a federal prison in Indiana.

ABC 7 I-Team sources with knowledge of the situation said the simple reason Peterson was moved was high maintenance, not high security. A lot of prisoners receive similar transfer treatment for various reasons but few are as recognizable and in need of regular management as Peterson.

By any measure 63-year-old Peterson has been a high maintenance prisoner from his made-for-television criminal "celebrity" status, to his in-your-face wise-cracks with media and correctional officers to his outrageous murder-for-hire plot against the Will County prosecutor that was hatched while behind bars at Menard.

State Deemed Peterson ‘Threat To Safety And Security’ Before Transfer
March 9, 2017 1:13 PM

 ::snipping3::
In February, Peterson was transferred from the Menard Correctional Center to a high-security federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.

At the time, state and federal prison officials declined to explain the reason for the move, but memos obtained from the Illinois Department of Corrections revealed state prison officials sought to move him because they saw him as a “threat to safety and security of the department.”

IDOC acting manager Doug Stephens wrote a letter to IDOC acting director John Bladwin, informing him of the plan to transfer Peterson to federal custody.

“Illinois is seeking placement via the Interstate Corrections Compact Agreement due to his former position as well as his conviction of Solicitation/Murder/For Hire of the Will County State’s Attorney. With his placement outside of Illinois Department of Corrections, it is imperative this offender be continually monitored through his mail as well as telephone conversations due to his former actions,” Stephens wrote.

One month after his transfer to a federal Indiana prison for security reasons, Drew Peterson was attacked by a fellow inmate armed with a food tray in the dining area, a source confirmed Tuesday.

Peterson, a former Bolingbrook police sergeant, was "jumped" March 29 in the chow hall of the maximum-security facility in Terre Haute, the source said. The convicted murderer was not seriously injured, the source said, and he has remained housed in a segregated unit away from the prison's general population since the incident.

Illinois Supreme Court again upholds conviction of Drew Peterson for murder of his third wife
January 19, 2018, 11:30 AM

Drew Peterson’s options for getting a new trial for the 2004 murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, have grown thinner after the Illinois Supreme Court on Friday declined to rehear his appeal.

In denying his petition for rehearing, the court reissued the opinion it put forth in September upholding Peterson’s conviction. In the 40-page opinion, the court unanimously rejected all of the former Bolingbrook police sergeant’s arguments -- including that the trial court should not have allowed witnesses to testify about what his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, told them about her husband’s involvement in Savio’s death shortly before Stacy Peterson disappeared in October 2007.

The court also rejected arguments that his flamboyant team of attorneys failed to give him effective legal representation when his lawyers allowed a divorce attorney to testify that Stacy Peterson asked him if she could use her knowledge of the defendant’s role in Savio’s death as leverage in divorce proceedings.

Convicted Killer Drew Peterson Files U.S. Supreme Court Appeal
Drew Peterson was sentenced in 2013 for killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
By John Ferak, Patch Staff  | Jun 19, 2018 10:09 am ET | Updated Jun 19, 2018 10:44 am ET

 ::snipping3::
This week, without nothing left to lose, Peterson's lawyer has filed a 38-page appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court attempting to overturn the murder conviction for killing Savio, whose death was made to look like an accident. The Chicago Tribune reported that Peterson's attorney Steve Greenberg alleges that the use of hearsay testimony plus statements from his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, that she made before her disappearance — should never have been allowed at the trial.

Greenburg also questioned the trial court's decision to let divorce attorney Harry Smith testify about a call in which Stacy Peterson said Drew Peterson had killed Savio.

At any rate, if the Peterson's lawyer's petition is successful, the next step in the legal process would be for the U.S. Supreme Court to allow for briefings and oral arguments on the issues raised in Peterson's filing.

These days, Peterson is 64.

Meanwhile, Stacy Peterson's sister announced on Facebook in March that Glasgow was about to file murder charges against Drew for the 2007 disappearance and murder of Stacy, whose body has never been found. However, no murder charges have been filed and nothing appears imminent.
