Drew Peterson’s lawyers were back in court today under a new Will County judge, Stephen White, who was assigned to the case on Monday.
JOLIET, Ill. – A judge is making it tougher for Drew Peterson to talk to the media from jail.
Will County Judge Stephen White ordered Peterson’s lawyers on Wednesday to give him phone numbers of family, friends and attorneys that Peterson calls. Peterson has to notify the jail if he wants to call anyone else.
The judge’s order comes after Peterson called a radio show from jail. White also wants to be notified on all interviews and press releases, and he ordered the names of witnesses and potential witnesses be sealed.
Peterson has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the 2004 death of his third wife Kathleen Savio. He’s also a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy.
White set the trial date for August 24th.
