Drew Peterson Lawyer Looking For Loophole?
A Wall Street Journal Story has one of Drew Peterson's attorneys looking at a tweeting juror as grounds for a possible acquittal. Or something.
Joel Brodsky, self-proclaimed "lead attorney" for accused wife-killer Drew Peterson, speculated in a Wall Street Journal story that all it might take for his client to walk is a tweeting juror.
"That would be ripe grounds for a mistrial, for throwing out a conviction or an acquittal, and we'd have to go through the process all over again," Brodsky said in the story.
To avoid the "horrible" possibility of Peterson getting his conviction thrown out — or even acquitted of the murder charges — Brodsky "may ask the court to require jurors to disclose information, such as Twitter handles and Internet Protocol numbers that track Web use," according to the Wall Street Journal story.
Peterson is coming up on marking a third year in the Will County jail while he waits for his murder trial to start. His legal team has repeatedly failed to get him released while the wheels of justice slowly turn.
