Drew Peterson moved to Menard prison

Convicted murderer Drew Peterson has moved to another prison.

Peterson is now at Menard correctional center in downstate Randolph County.

He just started serving a 38-year sentence for the murder of Kathleen Savio.

Peterson has already spent time at Statesville and Pontiac prisons.

The Department of Corrections gave no reason for his transfer.

Menard prison is known to be one of the toughest prisons in the state.

It’s currently on lock-down because of a recent assault on staff members.

    Menard is too good for this one! Can’t they rent a single space in a Mexican prison for Drew?

    He might get out of that hell hole with a successful appeal based on due process issues and his clown car team of lawyers.
