Drew Peterson expected to appeal conviction next month

Former Bolingbrook Police Sergeant Drew Peterson is expected to formally appeal his conviction next month.

Peterson’s attorneys have submitted several requests to file longer briefs than allowed, but the court has denied those requests so far.

Attorneys argue that the extra length is necessary because Peterson’s murder trial generated too much material to respond to.

Peterson was convicted last year of killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

He was sentenced to 38-years in prison in February.

Peterson’s appeal must be filed by January 14.

    This is a lot like the O.J. case. Most people think Drew is guilty, but there was no real evidence against him, and the conduct of the police and Will county medical examiner was grossly incompetent, to the point where they should have been put on trial. In effect, Drew is in jail because he lost a popularity contest with the public.
