Drew Peterson gets hearing for new trialLast summer a jury in Joliet convicted Peterson of the 2004 murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio.
Peterson and his lawyers are now alleging that his fired attorney Joel Brodsky provided ineffective counsel during the trial. They are asking for the verdict to be thrown out.
If Peterson’s request for a new trial is denied, he faces 20 to 60 years in prison during sentencing.
