Drew Peterson Sentenced To 38 Years For Murder Of Kathleen Savio
Former Illinois cop Drew Peterson yelled, “I did not kill Kathleen!” during the sentencing phase of his trial today — and then a judge sentenced him to 38 years in jail for killing her.
The sentence came after Will County Judge Edward Burmila denied Peterson a re-trial in the killing of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004.
Peterson had faced as many as 60 years in prison.
At his sentencing, after Peterson shouted that he did not kill his wife, someone in the courtroom yelled in reply, “Yes you did!” according to ABC News Chicago station WLS. Burmila then ordered that person to leave the courtroom.
Peterson went on to claim that police “altered evidence” in his case and “intimidated witnesses and scared my children.”
“I love Kathy,” he said. “She was a good mom. … She didn’t deserve to die.”
Drew also said he planned to get a tattoo on his back reading “no good deed goes unpunished”. Drew might not have done any good deeds, but the victims’ families are more than happy to see him punished.
Savio’s nephew Michael Lisak said afterwards that his aunt “can finally rest in peace.”
“Today is a day for battered women, not just Kathleen Savio,” Lisak said. “Your voice will be heard. My aunt’s voice was heard through the grave. She would not stop. They will listen to you now.”
Peterson’s sister Cassandra Cales had a blunt message for the newly convicted murderer.
“Game over, Drew,” she said. “He can wipe the smirk off his face. It’s time to pay.”
LMAO @ “Game over, Drew” Although Peterson was not convicted of killing his fourth wife, Stacy, hopefully this sentence will be bring some semblance of justice to her family as well.
