Peterson defense attorney David Peilet has called a daily courtroom watcher to the stand.

Jennifer Spohn has testified that on the morning of August 29th Spohn overheard a conversation between Joel Brodsky and Steve Greenberg in the hallway. Spohn says they were standing just a few feet away when Greenberg said to Brodsky: “We should not put  Harry Smith on the Stand” she said. Brodsky replied: “Yes we are doing it, we need him. “

Spohn said Greenberg then said, “I filed 74 expletive motions to stop Smith form testifying and and now you are going to undo it all.”

It was Harry Smith’s testimony that sealed the fate for Drew Peterson during the trial.  Jurors had said his testimony about a conversation he had with Stacy Peterson aided their decision. Smith was called to the stand by Joel Brodsky.

Harry Smith was Kathy Savio’s divorce attorney and eventually was contacted by Stacy Peterson.
