Judge Denies Reimbursement To Scott Peterson’s Mother

Modesto, CA — A Stanislaus County judge is refusing to reimburse Scott Peterson´s mother $35,000 from Laci Peterson´s estate.

Jackie Peterson told a judge in Stanislaus County Superior Court Thursday that she helped pay the couple´s mortgage, property taxes, utility bills and home repairs between April 2003 and February 2005.

She made the payments on the couple´s home after her son was arrested for killing his pregnant wife.

The judge says there is no basis for her claim since the law doesn´t allow reimbursements for expenses after a person´s death.
