Drew Peterson Sentenced To 38 Years In Jail

Remember when Drew Peterson was everywhere? He was like the Oscar Pistorius of Illinois for awhile as he kept dodging prosecution for the killing of his wives. Although he has never been charged with the killing of his fourth wife, a jury had previously convicted him of killing his third wife and a judge yesterday sentenced him to 38 years in prison for the crime. He could have been sentenced to 60 years, but the judge gave him a break because of military service and service as a police officer. No one gave his wives a break. They are dead.

That is such bull. Well he's almost 60 now so I'm guessing he won't make it out alive. I was reading yesterday that this sick fuck at one point was holding a "win a conjugal with drew peterson" contest.

greenmountaingal said...

38 years?! Because he's an ex-cop and ex-military? That's disgusting.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!The cowardly lion final got his just deserts!

J Sara said...

I think if he had said where their bodies are, give him less time (because he's already 60) but because he won't say where there bodies are, I would have given him the maximum.

Pogue Mahone said...

At least he didn't get away with it and will likely die in jail.Some justice is still better than none at all.

MISCH said...

as a former cop maybe he won't live long in prison

greenmountaingal said...

He and Blohan would make a lovely couple.

Lurky Loo said...

Yay! This guy lived two towns over from me and I am happy at least to know he isn't going to be back on the streets anytime soon. I will feel a little bit better on my drives into Bolingbrook knowing this ;>

Audrey said...

@ J - only one body is missing, and that if of his 4th wife who he says left him for another man. Salvio's body, his third wife, was found in a tub.

As a Chicagoan, I'm glad this is over and I am so glad he is now a whimpering, crying convict.

libby said...

Believe me, for such a malignant-narcissist type, just LOSING is enough to break his head, let alone something he was probably really confident about, when they botched the original autopsy.
When a guy like that is out of control of his situation, watch out.
He's already the type who murders rather than divorce.

dia papaya said...

YES!!! Justice for one of the horrible ones! I really didn't think they would convict him. They never found his fourth wife. What a tragedy for everyone, esp the kids he's left as orphans.

g.strathmore said...

Thank the Lord, he finally got some justice.

J Sara said...

Their.... Ugh - I'm not a moron - just half awake :)

Meanie Reese said...

Yes! It's not a full measure of justice, but it's better than nothing.

That *conjugal contest* is nauseating.

SusanB said...

hahahahahahahahahahahahaha *pause, catch breath, wipe away tears of joy* hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Tuxedo Cat said...

Thank god they finally pinned this slippery bastard down. He thought he was just so damn smart.

CraftyGirl said...

I feel sorry for any man with the last name of Peterson considering how tarnished that name is thanks to Drew & Scott.

I just wished they didn't name the hearsay law "Drew's Law." The last thing this egomaniac needs is to have something named after him.

Vera L- said...

have fun in prison scumbucket.

how long before he marries again? There is always a sad, lonely, lunatic woman ready to stand by human offal such as this.

prolixe said...

@Lotta, as loathsome as the conjugal contest is, I'm imagining that some women applied... even more appalling. Gah.

Let's hope he gets the conjugal visit he deserves - with Bo in Cell 36.

Agent**It said...

prolixe, lol. Go Bo!

caralw said...

He will die in prison. Maybe get raped if he hasn't been already. That's good enough for me.

Claritysk said...

Really sad. If anything the judge should have given him more time because he was a cop and in the military. He tarnished both. Betrayed the public trust.

Sherry said...

LOL Prolixe! Yeah sadly there are women who looooove convicts. I will never understand it. Even convicts who kill their wives and girlfriends.

And he get a break because of being a cop? Wasn't that what saved his ass in the first place for so long? Disgusting!

phoenix said...

So glad this psychopath's killing spree is over.

Erin B said...

I can't see him without thinking of the commercial for the Lifetime movie about him with Rob Lowe saying "I'm untouchable, bitch."

Tuxedo Cat said...

That face of Peterson's would look good in EmEyeKay's little red hood!

Regina Phalange said...

The military worship in this country is out-of-hand. Fucking stupid people being stupid. What else is new?

timebob said...

he was in the military and became a cop becuase he is a sociopath that wanted power. He wasn't protecting and serving anybody but himself.

He got 4 years off for time served. I think he will live to see the outside of his jail cell and somehow even in his 70's or 80's trick another woman into marriage and off them to one day. That's my prediction.

Michelle said...

Wow, @Regina! Was the first sentence really necessary? It seems to detract from your point. Plus, it's completely erroneous.

lc said...

You know what they do to ex-cops in prison, right? He dosen't stand a chance.

car54 said...

Good. Glad he's going away.

I feel very sorry for his kids. He's had them brainwashed into thinking he is not guilty.

__-__=__ said...

Glad to see SOME justice on this one. We need the name of the judge on this one too. These judges that give these reduced sentences need to be publicly outed and held accountable. If he won't get out of jail alive on this sentence what was the purpose of the reduced sentence? Another slap in the face of all the wives??? Letting the female population of the world know the war on women will continue?? Does the judge have a daughter? Mother? Wife?? Women also serve in the military and other govt. offices. Get rid of the judge, vote them out of office next opportunity!

MAC said...

If anything, he should be punished more because he was a cop. He used his status as a cop to torment people. That isn't something he should be rewarded for.

just curious said...

Dude's 60, he's lived the majority of his life.He's a former cop,therefore, he'll be sequestered from general pop.
He'll live out his life with free cable and visits from whatever dumb heff who'll marry his ass just so he can have sex.
All at the taxayer's expense.

auntliddy said...

enty right, he should have gotten no break. He's a sociopath, should never be released from prison.

IMakeNoSense said...

This is bullshit. If i did a crime i wouldn't have even thought of military time served. It shouldn't have anything to do with anything.

JSierra said...

I must be special because I thought Scott and Drew were one and the same. I guess in a way they are though...

Robert said...

The Cowardly Lion...HA!!

Justice is blind, deaf, dumb and DEAD in this country.
