In May, 2009, WGN Radio, working with Karen Conti and the late Greg Adamski, produced a mock trial featuring closing arguments and jury deliberations using facts from the Drew Peterson case. As the real case is now reaching the trial phase, we thought it would be interesting to go back and revisit what we found during our experiment. Karen Conti can be heard frequently providing legal analysis on 720 WGN.
The video of the mock trial of the closing arguments in the prosecution of Drew Peterson for the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, is now posted.
The trial was recorded on May 28th, 2009, at the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law featuring Chicago attorneys Greg Adamski and Karen Conti, hosts of WGN Radio's Legally Speaking.
"The People v. Drew Peterson" features Greg Adamski as moderator, Karen Conti as prosecutor, and lawyer Joseph R. Lopez as Drew Peterson's defense attorney. The broadcast will include the deliberations of the twelve jurors which were selected from the audience by a professional jury consultant and the verdict will be read at the conclusion of the broadcast. This event was intended as an educational exposition, based solely on the facts that have been publicly reported.
Legally Speaking is an award-winning interactive weekly talk show that airs every Sunday night at 9pm on WGN Radio. Co-hosts and practicing Chicago attorneys Greg Adamski and Karen Conti comment on the legal news in review, interview interesting and timely guests, and answer listeners' legal questions and concerns.
