Chicago, IL—Retired Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson has been kept behind bars with a staggering $20 million bail requirement for nearly four years without a trial or even a future trial date. He’s been convicted of nothing and has been denied any right to a speedy trial. Now we can question if he will ever see a fair trial.
Today the Illinois Court of Appeals has made a historic ruling that allows hearsay evidence to be admitted into a criminal trial. That is a troubling sign of where this nation is headed.
I can’t help but see this as a step into Germany’s judicial history 1933-1945. Trials in America are becoming nothing less than a sham designed to convict anyone of anything.
I don’t care what anyone’s opinion is about Drew Peterson’s guilt or innocence. This decision will affect you or someone you love sooner or later. This is nothing short of frightening.
People are ignorant and ignorance is bliss until they or a family member is caught of in our Police State with a pretend Bill of Rights.
This ruling is despicable and tyrannical. These judges must be removed from the bench for violating their sacred oaths to protect and defend the Constitution.
Our founding fathers created a judicial system wherein judges protected the accused from government tyranny. Today some judges are a part of the tyranny.
The decision will allow people with a financial interest in a conviction against Drew Peterson to tell the court and jury what they claim Stacy Peterson and Kathleen Savio told them about things allegedly said by Drew Peterson. This is un-American.
Joel Brodsky who is Peterson's lead lawyer said the following:
The appelllate court said in its opinin that:
"We do not mean to suggest, however, that the circuit court is required to
admit those eight statements during the trial. Rather, we merely hold that
the statements are admissible under Rule of Evidence 804(b)( 5) and should
be admitted under that rule unless the circuit court finds they are
"The statements are not admissible on several other grounds and we have the
motions to exclude this evidence prepared and ready to go."
This victory may be short lived for other reasons.
Peterson Appelate Ruling Hearsay
What are we supposed to do Crimefile? Is it truly the beginning of the End ? It sure seems like it...
I cannot believe that the courts actually upheld this abomination.
Illinois is the most corrupt state in the union.
Here is the #1 reason why HEARSAY LAW will be thrown out sooner or later.
In order for the hearsay to be premitted in a court case, a pre-trial has to be held with the judge and the judge must find that the defendant murdered the witness that the hearsay came from.
It doesn't take a attorney to figure this out. If the jury hears hearsay evidence, they will know that the judge already ruled the defendant killed the person it came from.... that doesn't sound like a fair trial to me... It's nuts!
I've been saying this since day one. The judicial system now works like this > First the media convicts you, then you go to prison, then maybe you get a trial where inadmissible evidence and crazy witnesses including a paid celebrity coroner testify against you all while your rights are being violated, then back to prison full. People should be afraid, not of the criminals but of the system.
DREW PETERSON IS GOING TO BE A RICH MAN!!
