Today the prosecution in the trial of Drew Peterson appealed Judge White’s most recent ruling on the hearsay statements they wanted admitted.
Last week State’s Attorney Glasgow asked Judge White to reconsider his decision about the hearsay evidence, citing a June 24th Illinois Supreme Court ruling, which upheld the conviction of Eric Hanson, a Naperville man sentenced to death for killing his parents, sister and brother-in-law, but the judge denied the motion.
The trial, which was scheduled to start tomorrow, will be delayed while an appellate court reviews the judge’s decision. It’s possible that Drew Peterson could be allowed to return to his home while the appeal is being heard.
A press conference is scheduled for 4 p.m.
