Scott Peterson case closed!

I'm sooo happy to hear this case is finally over!!! The only part I'm really waiting for is to hear the judge sentence Laci's husband from hell to life in jail. What does everyone think is going to happen?

My roommate is sick of it already, but since the judge is only giving two hours notice once the jury has a verdict, I've been spending a lot of time watching Court TV (they have the best coverage of the trial, in my opinion.) A talk radio station in my city, 770AM, also have been discussing the case quite frequently.

I just can't take another OJ walking the streets...

Re: Scott Peterson case closed!

I think he's guilty as hell, but I don't know if the jury will see it that way. You can just tell by lookin' at the man he's guilty.

Just like OJ.

Re: Scott Peterson case closed!

Closed? The jury hasn't even finished deliberating yet. Also signs are pointing to a possible hung jury. Frankly I don't think the prosecution had a very good case in terms of evidence linking him to the crime. As the defense said, they proved he was an asshole but that's about it. You have to invoke Occam's Razor here though, what's more likely: Peterson was having an affair and needed to take care of his problem wife or there was a vast conspiracy designed to frame him?

Re: Scott Peterson case closed!

Yep, he's guilty. However, you're right. The prosecution has no technical DNA evidence and didn't leave much of a case. It will still be a pity that a guilty man walks free....

i think the part that made him guilty was when he corrected himself when he was talking to barbra walters he said she was a... in stead of is.

Re: Scott Peterson case closed!

He LOOKS guilty, but I just don't really see his motive. Child support? Bad rep for being a cheating husband?

Yea, I heard earlier they might have a mistrial, but I didn't hear why.

CNN:
Quote:
Hearing explores possible Peterson juror misconduct

The controversy stems from a report that one juror may have conducted research on his own in the case, a charge that could result in the juror's dismissal.
There was also an article about there could be a hung jury.

Far from over... But I hope that ass gets what he deserves.

BREAKING NEWS

The jury in the Scott Peterson double murder trial has reached a verdict, to be announced about 4 p.m. ET.

Any guesses? Guilty I hope, and if not I hope Scott pledges to find the "real killer".

Some people are speculating that the two people who were kicked off were contributing to the deadlock, and after they slipped and mentioned their "independent research" they got kicked off, leading the other side to a fast verdict.

Re: Scott Peterson case closed!

Most think he's going to get off due to only circumstantial evidence, and it may be the case.

However, I hope he is found guilty.

Re: Scott Peterson case closed!

I'm not very hopeful he will be found guilty. I remember too well the O J case. I thought for sure he would be found guilty. I couldn't believe it when I heard the verdict. I expect the same thing will happen this time. Jurors are really dumb sometimes.

Re: Scott Peterson case closed!

Yeah, kind of restores faith in the court system, you know?

I was surprised, but not too surprised. I'd thought they'd let him get off, but was happy when they didn't.

My guess - life in prison. He should be thankful he doesn't live in Texas. They hang 'em high there.

I agree with Madre, though I'm not 100% sure what they'll do...i thought they'd let him go, but it turns out they didn't. Expect the unexpected, I suppose.
