Statement From Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow
Regarding Appellate Court Ruling In People v. Peterson


The Will County State’s Attorney’s Office argued from the beginning that all of the statements it presented from Stacy Peterson and Kathleen Savio should be admitted as evidence at trial in the case of People v. Drew Peterson.  After considering the merits of the State’s case at the direction of the Illinois Supreme Court, the Third District Appellate Court today agreed that eight statements previously excluded by the trial court are admissible under the Illinois Rules of Evidence. (Page 12, Paragraph 25). The case has been remanded to the Circuit Court for further proceedings. The State anticipates a trial to begin later this spring or early this summer.
