Top Prosecutor Wants to Stay Off Witness Stand in Drew Peterson Case
1:10 pm (February 13, 2013)

The man who won the Drew Peterson case wants no part in taking the witness stand at a hearing next week to decide whether the convicted wife-killer should get a new murder trial.

Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow filed court papers asking Judge Edward Burmila to bar Peterson's lawyers from calling him as a witness.

The motion says Peterson's lawyers revealed their plans to call Glasgow as a witness nearly two weeks ago, but that the state's attorney should not have to testify.

"A prosecutor, judge or news reporter is a 'special witness,'" the motion says. And if Peterson's lawyers want to get any of those kind of people on the stand, they must disclose what the witness is expected to say, why the testimony would be relevant, and what efforts they made to get the information from another source.

"In the case at hand, the defense has not satisfied a single one of those requirements," the motion says.

Last-ditch effort for Drew Peterson attorneys
February 17, 2013

Drew Peterson's longtime lead attorney could find himself on the witness stand Tuesday defending his decision-making and legal skills as the former Bolingbrook police sergeant's attorneys argue that their client deserves a new trial.
 
Peterson, convicted last fall of first-degree murder in the 2004 bathtub drowning of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, is taking one more chance at winning a new trial before his scheduled sentencing Wednesday. The 59-year-old faces 20 to 60 years in prison.
 
He remains the sole suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy. Prosecutors believe Peterson killed her and have said they will ask the judge to weigh that when sentencing him. They may also bring charges against Peterson, who they've labeled a "thug," in her presumed death.

But before Peterson is sentenced, his lawyers will argue that last summer's trial was so flawed that he deserves a new one. And, as with most things in the bizarre, high-profile case, what would typically be a rote hearing could turn into an unusual, theatrical proceeding.
 
Besides the prospect of former Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky being questioned by his defense team nemesis Steve Greenberg, the hearing is expected to include testimony from a retired judge, Brodsky's former law partner, a Peterson murder trial *******, a law professor and perhaps even Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow.

JOLIET, Ill. (CBS) ó Drew Petersonís feuding current and former lawyers, Steve Greenberg and Joel Brodsky, squared off in court today as the defense seeks a new trial. WBBMís Mike Krauser reports it was not the showdown that some were expecting.

Glasgow expects Peterson to be sentenced tomorrow.
 
ď30 years I have never had a case have a post-trial motion of this nature,Ē said prosecutor Jim Glasgow.

The way Drew Peterson's lawyers have acted is despicable and could cause problems for the case.  While Greenberg and Brodsky play out their court dramas, where is the justice for Kathleen Savio and her family? We need less Jerry Springer style and more Perry Mason.  JMHO

Drew Peterson facing sentencing Thursday if new trial bid fails
7:58 p.m. CST, February 20, 2013

Drew Peterson could be sentenced to up to 60 years in prison Thursday if a judge rejects defense team arguments that his former lead attorney's inept trial performance violated his constitutional rights to a fair trial.

Judge Edward Burmila is expected to rule Thursday whether the former Bolingbrook police sergeant will get a new trial, a rarely granted motion.

If not, Burmila will begin a sentencing hearing at which prosecutors have said they plan to argue Peterson also killed his fourth wife, Stacy, who went missing in 2007, in asking for the maximum sentence.

Drew Peterson judge rejects bid for new trial; sentencing hearing next
February 21, 2013 1:30PM
Updated: February 21, 2013 1:32PM

Drew Peterson wonít get a new trial, a Will County judge ruled Thursday, refusing to throw out the former Bolingbrook copís September murder conviction because of purported mistakes by his former lawyer.
 
The decision by Judge Edward Burmila clears the way for the 59-year-old Peterson to be sentenced for the 2004 bathtub drowning death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
 
Peterson faces a 20- to 60 prison term that, without a successful appeal, likely will keep him behind bars until he dies.
 
His sentencing could conclude Thursday, though it remains uncertain whether Peterson ó who didnít testify during two days of hearings ó will speak before Burmila orders him to prison.

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.

So, if Drew Peterson was screaming "I did not kill Kathleen"  after hearing his sentence, does that mean the smirk was finally wiped from his ugly mug?  I hope so!!  Bwahahahaha!  

(self edit to add:  he screamed BEFORE he was sentenced. )

Well, it looks like Drew Peterson yelled first and then was sentenced. it would seem logical, but oh well.  Either way, he's got 38 years!!!  (And I still hope it wiped the smirk off his face)
