Geragos Says DA Is In Contempt Of Court

Sponsored by:

Scott Peterson´s lawyer wants the Stanislaus County district attorney found in contempt of court for violating a gag order.

Defense lawyer Mark Geragos says D.A. James Brazelton committed prosecutorial misconduct when he told a newspaper he would seek a public preliminary hearing to present evidence against Peterson.

Brazelton told The Modesto Bee that he decided against presenting evidence to a secret grand jury so he can show the public evidence that might “open some eyes.”

Geragos says the D.A.´s comments are shocking. A Modesto judge has issued an order silencing lawyers, witnesses and investigators to prevent gossip and evidence leaks.

Peterson is charged with killing his wife, Laci Peterson, and their unborn son.
