A hearing requesting a new trial for Drew Peterson is about to get underway for the second day.  Retired Judge Daniel Locallo, is expected to take the stand and give his professional opinion as to his career experience and how it was a mistake for Joel Brodsky to call Kathy Savio’s divorce attorney Harry Smith to the stand.

Locallo does not have a direct connection to this case.

On Tuesday, defense attorney Steve Greenberg called Joel Brodsky in an effort to paint him as an unethical attorney who did not have his clients best interest at heart.   Ironically, Brodsky’s calling of Harry Smith to the stand during the murder trial never came up during his testimony.

Judge Edward Burmila is expected to go directly into sentencing if he does not approve a request for a new trial.  Kathy Savio’s father, brother and sister are planning on making victim impact statements.

Will County State’s attorney James Glasgow will hold a press conference along with members of Kathleen Savio and Stacy Peterson’s family shorting after court concludes for the day.
