Drew Peterson moved to 3rd prison in less than a week after being sentenced
Drew Peterson’s journey continues as he was moved to his third prison in less than seven days following his sentencing.
Judge Edward Burmila sentenced Peterson last week to 38-years in prison after the former Bolingbrook Cop’s conviction last September for the murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio.
Peterson is now housed in the maximum security Menard Correctional Center that reportedly is currently on lockdown following a recent assault on staff members. Menard is a 135-year old facility abutting the Mississippi River. Peterson was originally housed at Stateville Prison and was quickly moved to Pontiac Correctional Center before arriving at Menard.
Peterson is currently appealing his conviction, claiming ineffective assistance of counsel by his longtime attorney Joel Brodsky.
