After years of investigating and prosecuting, the area’s most notorious former cop is headed to prison.
Drew Peterson was sentenced today to 38-years behind bars for killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
Peterson was emotional as he spoke at today’s sentencing, at one point screaming out “I did not kill Kathleen!”
Peterson went on to say, “Until this happened, I thought I was a great guy,” he said. “And in moments, the media turned me into a monster. As soon as I get a chance, I’m going to get a tattoo on my back, from shoulder to shoulder, that says, ‘No good deed goes unpunished. ”
Peterson is also a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of Stacy Peterson, his fourth wife.
He has not been charged in that case.
