Drew Peterson

CHESTER, Ill. — Jurors have found former suburban Chicago police officer Drew Peterson guilty of trying to hire someone to kill the prosecutor who helped convict him in his third wife’s death.

Jurors reached the verdict Tuesday afternoon after deliberating for little more than an hour.

Peterson was accused of trying to hire a fellow inmate’s uncle to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. Peterson is serving a 38-year sentence in ex-wife Kathleen Savio’s death and faces up to 60 more years in prison.

On Tuesday, prosecutors said prison recordings of Peterson speaking with a fellow inmate prove he wanted the prosecutor killed. But Peterson’s defense lawyer says Peterson never explicitly says in the recordings that he wanted Glasgow killed.

    But, but, but blue lives matter. Another thug pig that should be turned into bacon bits.

      Oh boy, do you ever sound like a moron… Guess who busted the dirty cop? The good cops did. And there are MANY of the good ones busting their asses to protect yours. If you don’t like them, please don’t ever call for their help. I don’t want someone like you wasting my taxpayer money.
