Peterson Arraigned Today In Modesto

Scott Peterson has been quiet and courteous in the maximum security section of the Stanislaus County jail. That´s the description today from officials with the county sheriff´s department.

Peterson is being held in connection with the death of his wife, Laci Peterson, and the couple´s unborn child. Sheriff´s spokesman Kelly Huston says Peterson is being held in a cell alone.

Peterson talked to his lawyer last night — but there were no details available about their discussion. Peterson´s lawyer has not commented on the case since Peterson was arrested. Authorities say Peterson may be arraigned tomorrow afternoon — although that could also be delayed.

Huston says Peterson has been “rather quiet” and “very courteous” since arriving at the jail. Peterson has also made some phone calls from jail – but authorities say they don´t know how many or who he called. Laci Peterson disappeared Christmas Eve. Scott Peterson says he was fishing in San Francisco when she disappeared and does not know what happened to her. But authorities found the bodies of Laci Peterson and the couple´s unborn baby in San Francisco Bay – and have said they plan to charge Scott Peterson with two counts of murder.
