Appeals Court Reverses Dismissal of Drew Peterson Gun Charges

Joliet, IL–(ENEWSPF)–

From the Sun-Times:

An appeals court has reversed a lower court’s decision to dismiss gun charges against former police officer Drew Peterson.

Judge Richard Schoenstedt dismissed them in 2008 after prosecutors refused to hand over key internal documents. Peterson’s attorneys had argued the gun charges amounted to vindictive and selective prosecution.

But the Illinois Third District Appellate Court says Schoenstedt erred and reversed his decision.

Peterson is currently in jail.
