CHICAGO, IL – Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan issued a statement praising a Randolph County jury for finding defendant Drew Peterson guilty of solicitation of murder for hire and solicitation of murder.

The jury returned guilty verdicts earlier today against Peterson, 62, for a plot to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. Peterson’s sentencing before Randolph County Judge Richard Brown was set for July 26. He faces mandatory sentences of 20 to 40 years in prison for solicitation of murder for hire and 15 to 30 years in prison for solicitation of murder.

In response to today’s conviction, Attorney General Madigan made the following statement:

“The evidence in this case was clear that the defendant plotted from jail to solicit the murder of State’s Attorney Jim Glasgow,” Madigan said. “I thank the members of the jury for their service, and I commend the prosecutors for their hard work and relentless commitment to bringing this case to a successful conclusion.”

Assistant Attorneys General Bill Elward and Steve Nate tried the case with Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker.
