The hearing on post-trial motions in People V. Peterson is expected to conclude Wednesday, February 20. The case could proceed to sentencing later today. If that is the case:
- After Judge Burmila announces a sentence, the press is asked to go to Joliet City Hall for a post-sentencing news conference. We will begin the conference roughly 30-45 minutes after a sentence is announced.
- State’s Attorney Glasgow and his trial team will be available to make a statement, discuss the case and answer media questions.
- Kathleen Savio’s and Stacy Peterson’s family members will be available for comments as well as possibly other witnesses from the trial.
Joliet City Hall is located at 150 W. Jefferson Street
One block west of the Will County Courthouse
City Hall can be accessed from Washington Street, Jefferson Street or Joliet Street. Please proceed to the second floor Council Chambers. We are prepared to be as flexible as possible to accommodate the move for camera crews.
State’s Attorney Glasgow would like to thank Mayor Tom Giarrante and City Manager Tom Thanas for allowing us to bring this news conference indoors on a bitterly cold day.
