RECAP: Pastor Neil Schori testifies – Defense argues that conversations were privileged.
…But arguments over whether his conversations with the accused wife killer and missing mom Stacy are privileged kept him from testifying.
Judge Stephen White closed the courtroom and heard what Schori had to say about his interaction with Drew and Stacy Peterson. Schori will return to the witness stand Wednesday but it is not known if he will testify in open court.
Drew Peterson’s attorneys questioned whether Schori would be violating his privilege as a clergyman if he repeated what Stacy and Drew Peterson told him while he was providing counseling. The couple went to Schori to try to save their failing marriage.
