Yesterday I really thought that Drew Peterson was going to be let out on bail. He has been locked up for over a year and can't get out unless he can come up with the money to satisfy a $20M bail. But, all that I thought was going to change. Peterson is currently in jail awaiting trial for the murder of his third wife. How many did he murder anyway? Allegedly. I mean there is every chance in the world that he has just managed to marry women who disappear or die mysteriously at young ages.
So, prosecutors had lost a very important pre-trial ruling about using second hand statements and hearsay. It is devastating, and without it, they will lose their case. So, they are appealing the pre-trial ruling which will take about a year. I have never ever heard of someone being kept locked up during one of these pre-trial appeals. Ever. Well, the judge figured out a way to do it, and s instead of going home and finding someone else to kill (allegedly), Peterson will stay in jail where I hope he remains for the rest of his life.
