In May 2009, at the Chicago-Kent College of Law, WGN Radio’s Legally Speaking presented a mock trial of the closing arguments in the prosecution of Drew Peterson for the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
Attorney Karen Conti presented closing arguments for the prosecution; while Attorney Joseph Lopez (who had not yet joined the Peterson defense team) argued for the defense of Peterson. The case was presided over by retired Judge Richard E. Neville.
The jurors on the mock trial were given a fact sheet about the case of Kathleen Savio, which we thought might still be useful to have on hand as the trial gets underway.
Also, a few days ago we posted the juror questionnaire that was used last week. Below is the original 11-page questionnaire that the same group filled out when they were first assembled two years ago.
