Court Denies Peterson Bail Request

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jun 7, 2009 5:00PM

An Illinois Appellate Court refused a request by Drew Peterson's attorneys to lower his bail from $20 million. As it stands, Peterson would have to pony up $2 million to be released. Head attorney Joel Brodsky said, "We're disappointed in the ruling from the Illinois Third District Appellate Court, but we accept the court’s ruling. However, we are also confident that as the weakness of the state’s case is exposed over the following weeks and months we will have another opportunity to ask for a reduction in bond." [Sun-Times]
