    Not forgotten at all. As I wrote, I think he probably did it. I just don't think it was proven.

    Knowing that he is guilty and proving that he was guilty are 2 different concepts.

    Wonder what happened to his kids.....also his oldest son didn't think he killed his mother. Plus his daughter shows absolutely no fear of him. 38yrs.....Illinois is day for day plus one. So he can get out in 17. How old did they say he is.

    Also I heard he was being sent down to Sheldon or Shelton Illinois.....never heard of that one. Is that even a Max Penn?

    The son you're referring to is either Thomas, 19, who would have been just a kid when Peterson killed his third wife -- or his son Stephen, older, who was fired by the Oak Brook, IL police department after his testimony before a grand jury that he hid guns for his dad wo they wouldn't be confiscated. I think you're talking about Thomas. He loves his dad. That, combined withthe fact that he was just a boy when it all came down, makes his believing him innocent just logical. But hardly definitive.

    Yeah thats who I was talking about. He wasn't the one that was a cop. Still his daughter shows no fear of him. Plus that corners testimony was questionable.

    You know me Maggie I am from here so its not like I would like to see that POS get off for anything. I just wish they would have caught him dead to rights. Thought something would have come of it when whoever testified that he helped Peterson with dumping some barrel. Which would have been for the case of his third. The Salvio issue is a debachle.

    Obviously you don't have the makings to be any sort of lawyer.

    It most certainly did not.

    Convicting a person because they are an "asshole" is not reasonable.

    Convicting a person on hearsay evidence is not reasonable.

    Do you know anyone on the jury? ~ Irrelevant. Don't need to, and I would be ashamed if I did.
    Why do YOU feel this is not correct? ~ Admittance of hearsay evidence.

    Um, how is it a good thing to allow hearsay in a murder trial?

    Is it worth it to make the level of proof of murder less airtight for everyone in order to put one bad person away?

    I'm glad reason finally won out here. I'm sick to death of seeing clearly guilty people walk.

    Alot of parents should sleep easier. He almost got married again to another poor fool before they threw him in jail. Can you imagine if that was your daughter?
