Retired judge testifies Peterson retrial hearing
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — A retired judge unconnected with Drew Peterson's murder case has taken the stand as the former suburban police officer's lawyers seek to persuade a judge that Peterson deserves a new trial.
Daniel Locallo spoke Wednesday on the second day of a hearing on the motion. It asks for a retrial on grounds the lead attorney at the initial trial, Joel Brodsky, offered Peterson substandard representation.
Locallo told the judge that Brodsky made a major mistake by calling one witness whose testimony badly backfired on the defense.
