The 61 year old Peterson allegedly tried to hire someone to kill Glasgow between September 13 and December 14, 2014. Peterson faces two felony charges: solicitation of murder and solicitation of murder for hire.
Why should any one be surprised what Drew Peterson would ever so? He’s a multiple murderer, what’s a murderer for hire plot after killing your wife? As former Peterson attorney says in the video below, there is no valid or logical reason to do something like this, except pure vengeance. Hmm, that sounds completely like Drew Peterson.
Drew Peterson, the former suburban Chicago police officer convicted of killing his third wife and suspected in the disappearance of his fourth, has been charged with trying to hire someone to kill the prosecutor who helped put him in state prison, authorities announced Monday.
Peterson appeared in court on charges that between September 2013 and December 2014, while behind bars, he solicited a person to find someone he could pay to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. Peterson did not enter a plea.
The latest complaint was filed by both the Illinois attorney general’s office and the prosecutor in Randolph County — the location of Menard Correctional Center, where Peterson is serving his sentence. In the two-page complaint, Peterson is charged with solicitation of murder for hire and one count of solicitation of murder, both felonies carrying a maximum sentence of at least 30 years in prison.
Peterson attorney Steven Greenberg said the charges “seem a bit absurd” because Peterson would have nothing to gain by trying to have Glasgow killed.
“This is completely out of character and inconsistent with everything I know about (Peterson),” Greenberg said. “I’ll wait to see what evidence they have.”
It would appear that his attorney knows nothing about his wife killing client.
