Peterson Case Moving

It's January 8th and I'm already tired of seeing Mark Geragos' mug on TV. It's going to be a long weird year...

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - A judge ruled Thursday that accused murderer Scott Peterson can't get a fair jury in his dead wife's hometown and ordered the case moved out of Stanislaus County.

Prosecutors argued that news coverage of the case, which captured the nation's attention after a pregnant Laci Peterson disappeared on Christmas Eve 2002, is so widespread that moving the trial would be pointless.

Defense lawyer Mark Geragos said in court papers that Peterson has been demonized and that the prosecution's argument "can be boiled down to the old adage, 'Sure we can give him a fair trial, then we will take him out and hang him.'"

How about we take him out and hang him first, then give him a fair trial?

I personaly think the bastard is guilty given all of his actions right after her disapperance in all.
How to look guilty of a murdering your spouse.
1. sell her car
2. try to sell the family home
3. drastically change apperance and allegied to have a false ID and several thousand dollars in cash.
4.blame a cult group for the murder
5. not be active in search for the dispeared spouse
6 stop communicating with the in laws
I am done for now. sorry

It's all a conspiracy aimed at making CourtTV the most-watched cable network.

I told them they should show those "Girls Gone Wild" ads in the wee hours, but would they listen? No-o-o-o-o-o!

I just read that there is a possibility that the trial will be moved here to Monterey County! The thought of this media circus in my own backyard is terrifying.
