I live in Fresno California and I dont live but a few towns over from where they lived. They had it on here all the time. Everyone here in town has been tlaking about it. So I think that I have had my fair share of information that is provided by the public. Like many others I did a lot of reading on this case.


I must say that Frey doesnt seem so honest to me. I am sorry but how could she not have any idea that he was married? Or if not married at least dating someone. How can a woman begin to talk about being in love with a man and making plans with a man and not even know his family and or been to his house. I am sorry but she I dont like.

I dont know if he is guilty and I dont know if he is innocent. Either way I agree with one of the post a few before mine, That said there might be a day that his loved ones will find PTO and need us for support.

We all have loved ones inside and I am sure not everyone's loved one that is inside is innocent and just framed. I am that there are some of us if not all of us, That love and stay strong by the sides of our loved ones, But are disapointed in their crimes and life around their crime.

I am not trying to sound like a goody good. But the fact is the victims of the crimes our loved ones commited are not here saying that he/she should get this or that.

I wish I did know if he really is guilty or not, I dont think there was enough physical evidence to do so. But like many of you on here my gut says yes he did.

This whole story is sad. For each side of the case. His family have to stand by him and thinking about the possiablties that their loved one is guilty. ANd of course Laci and her sons family have to wake up everyday feeling like a piece of them is gone.

I dont know but, Scott Peterson has a long time to think about what he did or a long time to think about who did what they did to his family. Either way he has his own demons to go on in his head.

I wish Laci's family the best and I wish Scotts family strength.

I don't have an opinion b/c I didn't follow it. Thank you for posting it here. I would not have even known otherwise.

Mrs. B- you aren't offending anyone with your post! In fact, I agree with you somewhat.
This whole case was so incredibly sad. The fact that you have Laci's parents on one side, who have to deal with the loss of their daughter and grandson possibly at the hands of their son in law, who I would assume they probably loved at one time, to Scott's parents who have to deal with the fact that their son is probably going to spend the rest of his life in prison, if not get the death penalty, for a crime that they don't think he committed. And the fact that their daughter in law and grandson are gone. So sad!
Obviously I was not on the jury so I didn't hear all the evidence that they did- But
I must say that I was pretty surprised to hear that he got first degree-
Well- either way- the jury made their decision. If Scott is guilty, then he absolutely deserves life- if he's not- another waste of a life.
I guess we won't ever really know what happened.

I just watched a thing on Entertainment Television and after watching it .... I think he is guilty. They had many interviews with him. I didnt follow the whole story but what I just watched and his reactions to questions I believe he did it.

Just my opinion.

I do hope her family can have some closure now.

How many of you listened to the taped conversations he had with Amber Frey? And the relieved whistle after Sharon Rocha called to tell him it wasn't Laci's body when they found an anchor in the bay. He wanted out of the marriage and didn't want to pay child support and alimony. He's guilty as sin!!!!!

I've followed this case since the beginning..in fact I found this forum by following a link on the court tv Laci board. I am undecided as to his guilt but I really don't think the pros. proved the case. This is far from over. Just the fact that the 2nd degree option was put on the table at the last minute is appealable..nothing the pros. argued supports anything but premeditation.
As far as logging on to the court tv boards, be prepared the guilties and the not guilties are at each others throats and it's a train wreck over there!

Well the system is set up to judge - that's how they come to a verdict. And I suppose everyone in America speculates, esp. when the media has shoved it down out throats.
I don't really think it's called judging AFTER the verdict. It's called supporting the jury, which spent hours, days, months looking at and hearing evidence and then hours, days, weeks combing thru it. They did the best they could and I think they were right on. And people can say whatever, but once the verdict is in, that is what he is by law. Guilty. O.J. is innocent. That's what the law says and that's the way the defendant will go down in the books. Rarely is there EVER anyone else at a murder scene. There's the victim and the defendant, and following the murder of one person, there's only one left. I know we like to see facts, black and white evidence, etc., but the system allows circumstantial evidence. If we don't like it, we have to change the system, not one case. I'm SOOOO glad I wasn't on that jury - OUCH!

Guilty or not guilty everyone derserves a fair trail IMO this did not happen. The news media made a joke out of this and people selected for the jury some of them at least violated their duty to provide a fair trail. And last as his mother and family left the court people gathered booed them how very heartless shows what kind of society we live in. No one has won in this case and for people to "CHEER" turned my stomach AND yes I think he either did it or was involved somehow but the reaction of so many is pitiful!

Fedx,
You know I did 3 years in prison myself, I believe in this mans guilt by his actions. And the lies he was caught up in....did you ever watch him...just to me he did not seem like a man who had just lost his wife......

I lost my husband 9 years ago, I know people grieve in different ways and manners......but he just didn't seem sincere. Mind you this is just my opinion. Like everyone elses......I don't want to see him put to death...

But all the motives were there, pregnant wife, having an affair, and then why would a husband leave his wife, whom is preg. on Christmas Eve?

I just have no understanding, and then lets die our hair and bail, with cash in hand, and alot of it......if he didn't do it why would he run.....I would have been shouting from the roof tops about my innocence. Even her family think he did it, and they know the man.

I have been convicted and in and out of court.....I never ran, wanted to, and could have.....you've been where I have, there are lots of people in prison that just seem the type not to be there. But they are......and Scott Peterson is a nice looking young man. I hate to see anyone go to jail...

However, like you this isn't over. He will appeal and win...you also know. Money talks, he could very easily walk next trial......

Kat

I so agree with you on this. The media was out of control, when the change of venue was granted and before jury selection started a billboard was erected in Redwood City showing Peterson in his orange jumpsuit and the caption "Man or Monster" how could the jury pool not be affected by something like that? His family has been demonized for standing by there son and what happened to them today was horrible.

That's right- the great thing about PTO is that we all find unconditional support while dealing with having a loved one in jail, and we don't have to deny their guilt to get it.

I watched quite a bit of trial coverage, and I do not believe the prosecution proved their case. It scares me that our justice system has degenerated to a "popularity contest". I agree Scott did some terrible things. He may have even murdered his wife. The problem is: It was not proven.

I was also sickened by the cheering crowds outside of the courthouse. How can anyone cheer or celebrate such a tragic event? It just goes to show that a mob mentality took over this trial. No way was the defendent given a fair shake.

I do not believe based on the evidence I have heard or by what I have read that this man is guilty, there are just too many unanswered questions. I do believe that this man did not get a fair trial and so if there is any justice he will get an appeal through (and I pray not the automatic one you get with the DP) What I do hope is that this trial has opened the eyes to people who aren't connected or commonly 'think' about the whole trail - incarceration process, that there are soooo many cases and inmates who have been wrongly convicted based on the same amount or even less evidence that this verdict came from and are now rotting in prison, on death row or even murdered by the state who did not have such a highly publicised trial. These are the ones who nobody other than their loved ones remember or think about, who is fighting their corner? For years to come there will be people fighting for or against Mr. Peterson no matter how this ends up, due to the notoriety of the whole case. As I said I do not think, based on the evidence provided, a guilty verdict is a right verdict, but it wasn't up to me, it was up to judge and what he deemed admissable, and 12, 13, 14......how ever many ended up being on the jury. I just hope that there are no more victims in this already heartbreaking case. Killing Mr. Peterson will not bring his wife and child back.

I totally agree with you on this. I don't believe he got a fair trial. The Media has said he was guilty from the very start, and I honestly think that is what helped convict him. From what I have heard here in Illinois, this is not the only case like the Peterson case. I also don't think ANYONE no matter how bad of a crime they committed deserve the DP. I for one am totally against the DP, and no one will ever be able to change my mind on it.
