Convicted murderer Drew Peterson woke up Saturday in his new home for the next 38 years.

It’s the Pontiac Correctional Center, a maximum-security prison that has a protective custody unit.

After Thursday’s sentencing for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, Peterson started out at the Stateville prison Friday morning in suburban Crest Hill, but was quietly transferred to Pontiac.

He was processed there and prison officials released his new mug shot, shown here.

Peterson is 59 years old, and pending a successful appeal by his attorneys, he won’t be eligible for parole until 2047.
