Drew Peterson’s son has lost an appeal to get his police job back.
Steven Peterson was fired as an Oak Brook police officer after investigators learned he stashed three of his father’s guns while authorities were investigating the disappearance of Drew Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacey.
Steven Peterson’s lawyers appealed the police commission’s ruling to DuPage County, saying the punishment was excessive. He says he held the guns because they were his father’s favorites.
Drew Peterson hasn’t been charged in Stacey’s disappearance but he’s serving a 38-year prison sentence for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
