The Will County judge who presided over Drew Peterson’s murder trial had to sort through some legal drama on Friday, about what attorneys would represent the former Bolingbrook police officer going forward.
The judge in the Drew Peterson murder trial has denied a motion for a mistrial by the defense Thursday, although testimony by a witness the day before made him furious at prosecutors.
Rod Blagojevich’s brother, Robert, said the former governor was “holding up very well” on Thursday, a day after a federal judge sentenced him to 14 years in prison for his convictions on 18 fraud charges.
Federal prosecutors began their closing argument in Rod Blagojevich’s corruption retrial on Wednesday, telling jurors that the former governor lied to them repeatedly during his seven days on the witness stand.
Jurors in the corruption retrial of Rod Blagojevich on Tuesday heard the secretly recorded phone conversation in which the former governor calls the U.S. Senate set he is accused of trying to sell “f***ing golden.”
