I don't know if you guys have been following the Drew Peterson case. He's gotten a trial in the press and a special law by the Illinois legislature to allow hearsay in his trial.
Now we got the last juror saying:
Mr. Supalo said he had some doubts about the credibility of Stacy Peterson’s statements to the pastor, the Rev. Neil Schori.
Yeah... I think that's a big problem. This guy got railroaded by a bunch of politicians, even if he was guilty.
Stacy Peterson basically admitted to her pastor that she was an accessory to murder. She either lied to the cops and covered up a murder or lied to the pastor and her friends. She even asked her divorce attorney if she could squeeze Drew Peterson for more money if she threatened to recant the alibi she gave him.
The 5 year old recollections of Kathleens friends and family about the abuse she said
she was suffering because of divorce. That's not evidence.
This wasn't a fair trial. There is a reason hearsay isn't allowed. It's because it's unreliable. Courts have regarded hearsay as unreliable for hundreds of years because they observed it was unreliable. If Drew Peterson isn't a victim of this law, someone will be.
