    He sentenced him to life, basically. Thirty-eight years -- w/special circumstances, no possibility of parole. I think you're wrong about the judge thinking something is lacking. And who doesn't appeal? Especially someone with his assets.

    Illinois law is 2 for 1 on every day he serves. So what does that come out to? 17yrs with good time. So he will be 75 if serving the full time. Which now doesn't count anything they go for with sentencing on the time thru any mishaps by the state.

    Which again he will be fielded to a Med/ Min Joint. Don't look like hard time to me. Not for one that is suppose to represent the law. Wherein an example is made out of.

    NO, what he is saying I believe is that its better for 10 scumbags to be set free than one innocent man ruined and when we start cutting corners in order to achieve a desired end, the innocent will get caught up in the desire to punish the evil

    Caveat-I have not followed the case and I don't know if reasonable doubt existed

    Time doesn't matter. Her body was exhumed and re-examined after his fourth wife went missing.

    [COLOR="#800000"]Yeah I know but testimony of former people who had filed reports and given statements the first time around when Salvio died also didn't jive with some of their testimony the 2nd time around[/COLOR]. Moreover people could not remember certain events from the first time. Yet they were allowed to testify to what Salvio told them.

    The guy beat his wife regularly. The police had been called to the home like 18 times for domestic disturbance while married to Savio. That is something that can't be made up. The autopsy report can't be made up. Also, I guarantee you that her family remembers every single phone call, every single email that she sent talking about how he treated her. According to reports, they knew immediately that something was fishy when she died, but because the guy is a cop, I'm pretty sure the investigation wasn't conducted as thoroughly as it should have been.

    Hearsay evidence is admissible when the person saying it is dead. I believe the statements that were made, especially since it happened twice, with two different people. Simple as that.

    You say that he beat her regularly.....then why wasn't there photos and documentation of any of this. Where were the photos by her relatives when she ran over to see them? They never produced any. Also I think you would have to look into the testimony of that coroner and what he stated and what was stated at the first time the Coroners Office reported on the matter.

    It will be one of Petersons main Appeals arguments.

    It's a lot like OJ, in that the now dead victim told friends she believed her husband would kill her, even going so far as telling a friend that he threatened to kill her. The jury heard the statement, the defense had a chance to cross-examine the witness alleging the victim made the statement. They believed it. I'm convinced.
