Over 44 witnesses have testified already in the hearing to decide what hearsay testimony may be admitted to the murder trial of Drew Peterson. Who will testify today?
We’ll be updating throughout the day as we get information. Please make sure to check out the comments thread for the latest!
While we wait for updates why not take a look at the actual “Hearsay Law” and the motions and replies that have been filed regarding its significance to this case?
Some people over-simplify or are just mistaken about what the act allows and then react in a panic over the sixth amendment and the right to confront. In reality the law applies only to a very specific kind of testimony.
It’s not the lightest reading, but if you want to understand why these hearings are so important and how certain statements may or may not be allowed in Drew Peterson’s trial, you owe it to yourself to dive in!
