    Drew Peterson sentenced to 38 years for wife's death

    This is a FANTASTIC day! Im not sure most people know how evil this man is. He has killed TWICE. Gotten away with one because of no body and no evidence. Finally he is in jail and I hope and pray the familes that have suffered soooooo long can now have some closure.


    He took issue with a law passed by the Illinois General Assembly in in July 2009 that allowed hearsay to be admitted as evidence in cases where prosecutors believe the victim was killed specifically to prevent them from testifying. The law was dubbed the "Drew Peterson Law."
    "Hearsay is a scary thing," Peterson told the court. "It requires no proof of truth. Anything can be said and no one is accountable."
    He said the statements made against him were from "women trying to better position themselves in a divorce. ... Everybody lies in a divorce."

    I was so pleased to hear this. And to hear that his smart-ass facade finally disintegrated. He killed two wives. He'll spend the rest of his life in prison. That's good news,.

    He got off easy. If ever a man deserved the death penalty it is this Drew psychopath.

    Hearsay is an extremely dangerous and scary thing and should NEVER be allowed as evidence in testimony.

    Really isn't anything new. Hearsay has been admissible forever in the form of dying declarations.

    Don't like it. State must PROVE its case, not use supposition and merely make claims that cannot be demonstrated.

    At least he was not tried in Floriduh, like Casey Anthony.

    I must agree. Alas this vile hearted fake with a HUGE ego must be looked at upon a microscope. It is CLEAR that he killed TWO WOMEN. How do we convict him? Based on ONE case we CAN determine that through conective ananysis he HAS a huge probability of murder. I of course was not on the panel BUT the evidence provided he WAS convicted. Its not like there was zero evidence on his last wife. The jury heard it all. Not me. If it WAS just me I would wish his ass get tossed into a small pit with roaches for the rest of his life. Alas that was not my call. Nor was his sentence. It was VIA jury and then judge he was found guilty WITH.... enough to put him away.

    Ikari I ask you WHAT data (not information) have you heard that he is guilty OR innocent?

    I don't like the guy and we can assume he is guilty. But IMO they never proved beyond a reasonable doubt that he was guilty. Hearsay Evidence.....of what some one told a Priest and tried years after the death as well as with the recollection of those that testified years after the death. Was a slap in the face of Justice.

    But then what is Justice.....other than Just us!
