Former Peterson attorney may face state punishment

Drew Peterson’s former lead defense attorney may face discipline for some remarks he made on WGN-TV.

In the wake of Peterson’s murder conviction, attorney Joel Brodsky said it was Peterson himself who demanded that Harry Smith, the divorce lawyer for his estranged wife Kathleen Savio be ordered to testify at his trial.

Smith’s testimony ended up convincing jurors to convict Peterson.

Will County Judge Edward Burmila says he was shocked that Brodsky would publicly discuss his trial strategy, and he’ll ask the state’s lawyer disciplinary commission to punish Brodsky.

Brodsky insists he had every right to publicly defend what he did.
