Today a three-judge panel from the Illinois Third District Appellate Court ruled to deny Drew Peterson’s petition to reduce the amount of his bond from $20 million.
Peterson’s lead attorney, Joel Brodsky, says, “We’re disappointed in the ruling from the Illinois Third District Appellate Court, but we accept the Court’s ruling. However, we are also confident that as the weakness of the State’s case is exposed over the following weeks and months we will have another opportunity to ask for a reduction in bond.”
Per court document filed today:
“Appellant’s Motion for Review of Bail Order is DENIED.
“Defendants bail bond should not be modified or reduced”
Peterson’s next court date is scheduled for August 10th, 2009 (pre-trial).
