Scott Peterson begins trial

Scott's case does not look so good. They are calling the unborn child, Connor, the baby that was in his wife Laci. He's got some good lawyers though.

Wrong....This fool is going to get off....REASONABLE DOUBT is all he needs. The cult did it, the dead lady that saw his wife walking the dog, the dead babies age....is beyond a shadow of a Reasonable Doubt.

Plus, his lawyer is pretty shifty...the best you could get.

Why??? People have gotten off on far less. The thing that will set him free is the time of death of his wife and the baby. There is a 2-3 week difference in age regarding the baby (older), meaning it did not die the day in which the Police claim his wife was killed. Also, it is almost impossible (according to reports) to find a cause of death for his wife (legs, arms, head reportedly missing...tied/weighted down underwater). Don't believe everything you see on CSI...

There is plenty of reasonable doubt and I think he will probably go free....unless there is evidence the the has not brought out yet????

I wrote this over a month ago and today it was reported that a Prosecution witness may have lied on the stand. Remember O.J., good lawyers and shytty evidence will get him off.

it looked like he was gonna get a hung jury with those two jurers that they booted so you was almost correct, but they wasted no time with those 2 new alternates. I think 7 hours and it was a wrap.

Well think about it, if after they take you back to your suite, and after the suitcoats & loved ones go back home - you're then left alone, the lights go off and all of a sudden 'it hits you' and it all comes wackin' down on you.

Scott Peterson, once an upwardly mobile fertilizer salesman in Modesto, will move to Marin County by Friday night, where he is to live the rest of his life in the downwardly mobile confines of San Quentin State Prison's Death Row.

He will spend much of the day in an 8-by-6-foot cell containing a steel bed frame bolted to the floor, with a sheet of steel lying on it. On top of that is a mattress. There used to be bedsprings, but guards found that prisoners tended to make weapons out of them.

On Wednesday, Sgt. Eric Messick, a spokesman for San Quentin, described what is in store for the soon-to-be newest resident of California's Death Row.

Once the 32-year-old Peterson arrives at San Quentin, Messick said, "he will be taken directly to the Adjustment Center, a 102-man cell-block reception center" for newly arrived condemned men. Messick said 97 of the 102 prisoners now living in the reception center are men who have been in trouble in prison and are classified Grade B inmates, as opposed to the Grade A prisoners who are better behaved.

Peterson will go through 45 days of interviews, in which his "social factors and educational background will be assessed by an institutional classification committee," Messick said.

"He'll have medical and psychological evaluations and then, because he's not from a criminal background, he will probably be sent to East Block," which houses 450 of San Quentin's 615 condemned men. Twenty-five condemned inmates are at other prisons. "There, he will be segregated with Death Row inmates for the rest of his life."

And how will he spend his time, given that it takes about 17 years to move from East Block into the death chamber?

Most of his time will be spent in the cell, which, in addition to the steel bed, has a sink, a commode and a wall locker. He may have records, tapes and CDs, a television set and books. He will also have two sheets, a blanket, a pillow, a pillowcase, two towels, boxer shorts, T-shirts, socks, blue denim pants and light-blue shirts.

All meals will be served in Peterson's cell, and it won't be like much of the highfalutin chow available down the road in Mill Valley or Sausalito.

A hot breakfast, at 6 a.m., will be something like a sausage patty, two hard-boiled eggs, a square of hash brown potatoes, and "the next day it might be coffee cake with hot cereal," Messick said.

Lunch, delivered in a sack, comes around 10:30 a.m. and consists of bread, lunch meat or peanut butter and jelly or tuna salad, along with cookies, chips, fruit and sugar-free Kool-Aid.

Dinner, at 5 p.m., is usually meat, potatoes and a vegetable, or various ethnic meals. After dinner, Peterson can watch TV, but can receive only local channels. If that gets boring, he can read until he falls asleep, no matter how late -- each cell has individually controlled light switches, Messick said.

Like all Death Row inmates in their windowless cells, Peterson won't be able to see or hear the bay, into which he dumped the body of his pregnant wife, Laci.

Peterson can exercise up to about five hours a day, six days a week. Whether he exercises communally or by himself is up to the classification committee. He may also have three showers a week.

His attorney can visit five times each week and Peterson can have two personal visits a week. Each visit can last up to 90 minutes. Should he manage to find a wife while on Death Row, no conjugal visits will be allowed.

As for the possibility that Peterson might be harmed by a publicity- seeking prison colleague (it happens), Messick said, "We have built-in procedures -- no double-celling, no contact with any inmates. If he's out of his cell block, he's under escort of three officers. Inmates on the general population main line, when they hear them coming, have to find the nearest wall and face it."

By the time his execution date comes around -- if ever -- Peterson will probably be nearing his 50th birthday. In the meantime, however, if he keeps out of trouble, he may be upgraded to a special unit called North Seg.

"Up there," Messick said, "you have your most senior, best-behaved Death Row inmates. They get 'tier time,' which means the tiers are cleared of all (prison) staff, the cells are unlocked and the inmates can come out and play pinochle and take showers."


Average length of stay

California: 16 to 17 years
