Drew Peterson Lawyer Looking For Loophole?

A Wall Street Journal Story has one of Drew Peterson's attorneys looking at a tweeting juror as grounds for a possible acquittal. Or something.

Joel Brodsky, self-proclaimed "lead attorney" for accused wife-killer Drew Peterson, speculated in a Wall Street Journal story that all it might take for his client to walk is a tweeting juror.

"That would be ripe grounds for a mistrial, for throwing out a conviction or an acquittal, and we'd have to go through the process all over again," Brodsky said in the story.

To avoid the "horrible" possibility of Peterson getting his conviction thrown out — or even acquitted of the murder charges — Brodsky "may ask the court to require jurors to disclose information, such as Twitter handles and Internet Protocol numbers that track Web use," according to the Wall Street Journal story.

Peterson is coming up on while he waits for his murder trial to start. His legal team has repeatedly failed to get him released while the wheels of justice slowly turn.

life is NOT FAIR..at least not always. the constitution of our great country can NOT be disgraced by directly being compared to drew peterson's case..if his last wife is "hiding" as he repeatedly proclaims then they should put her in charge of the witness protection program! i would never go against "innocent til proven guilty" so he should hav a fair trial..hes in jail cause he does NOT have the money for bail! his bail is 20 MILLION!..maybe all you drew-pers can pay it for him. its so high cause hes not just a typical flight risk but an diabolical megalomaniac who is the definition of "psychopath". he believes + acts as tho he is above the law which WILL happen when you get away with petty crimes culminating to felonies your entire life..a 20 year veteran + SARGEANT is held up to a higher standard with regards to upholding law than an average citizen. he never looked good..especially NOT in blue but his new uniform suits him perfectly: ORANGE!

If the court would have given him a reasonable bail all of this support about a speedy trial would not be taking place.20 million for bail on a case as flimsy as this is crazy.

What ever happened to Peterson's #1 & #2 wives? AND will they be testifying?

How many ex-wifes would have something good to say about the ex-hubby,isn't that what the hearsay law is all about.The law was created so the Priest could testify,like we all should trust Priests.
