This seems weird, is in it, crazy, how Drew Peterson gets out for his mother's funeral and former Governor George Ryan couldn't get out for his wife's funeral?
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, as attorneys battled over who’s representing him, convicted killer Drew Peterson was briefly whisked Thursday out of the Will County Jail to pay a final visit to his deceased mother. Peterson was quietly escorted by “a bunch” of sheriff’s deputies from Joliet to a Darien funeral home to say goodbye to his mother, 84-year-old Betty Morphey, defense attorney Joel Brodsky said.
An Illinois jury on Thursday found former Chicago-area police sergeant Drew Peterson guilty of murder in the 2004 death of his ex-wife, reports CNN.
Former Illinois Governor George Ryan was not present in his wife's funeral.
Ryan, 78, is serving a 6 1/2-year sentence at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind., for a 2006 corruption conviction. He is scheduled to finish serving his sentence on July 4, 2013, according to the Huffington Post.
