Judge to rule on Peterson weapons charge at end of month

Will County Court judge said Monday that he will make a decision July 30 on a motion to dismiss a felony weapons charge against Drew Peterson.

Judge Richard Schoenstedt also granted the defense’s motion to alter Peterson’s bond to allow him to travel out of state for vacation purposes.

Peterson’s attorneys argue that federal statutes provide him with immunity from state firearms laws. The state argued that the federal law does not apply to weapons that are considered illegal
in a police officer’s home state.
