CBS reporter Mike Puccinelli broke a story speculating that the new Lifetime movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable just might give the accused wife-killer's lawyers the leverage they need to haul Peterson's murder trial out of Will County and over to some venue without access to even basic cable packages.
Puccinelli even got CBS legal analyst Irv Miller to confirm that yes, Drew Peterson: Untouchable could be the moving truck that will carry the Peterson trial out of Joliet and deliver it to a jury in a land without televisions.
According to the CBS report, Miller "says the release of the film will poison the jury pool and possibly give the defense attorneys grounds to ask that the trial be moved."
Yeah, that's exactly what Miller says about moving the trial. Except not really.
Reached by phone after Puccinelli's story was posted, Miller explained that he actually said the opposite about the possibility of moving the case, since, you know, it makes no sense to take the trial out of Will County because of a movie that was shown on a national network.
"That was my next sentence that they cut," Miller said, "because Lifetime is shown all over the country."
And the country will be glued to its television screens at 7 p.m. CDT for Drew Peterson: Untouchable, which is based on the true crime sensation Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson.
Don't miss it!
