Peterson Trial heading to San Mateo County
A judge says he´s sticking with his plan to move the murder trial of Scott Peterson out of Modesto. Just moments ago, Judge Al Girolami has chosen the San Mateo County for the trial.
Prosecutors asked the judge to reconsider his decision, saying a survey of potential jurors had fake information in it.
Some college students who conducted the survey have since admitted they cheated and made up some of the results. But the judge says the survey had little role in his decision to move the trial out of Stanislaus County. The case has attracted intense media coverage. Peterson has pleaded innocent to charges of killing his wife Laci and their unborn child.
