'YOU DIDN'T ONLY LIE TO ME, SCOTT, YOU LIED TO A NATION'
The NY POST ^ | Aug 17,2004 | Howard Breuer

Posted on 08/17/2004 5:31:58 AM PDT by runningbear

August 17, 2004 -- REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Stunning new phone tapes from Scott Peterson's slay trial yesterday depicted his miffed mistress demanding to know if he slept with wife Laci the night before she vanished — and Peterson insisting he told Laci about their affair after their first date.

Peterson begged Frey for second chance, tape shows

Just 15 days after his pregnant wife mysteriously vanished, Scott Peterson spent an hour on his cell phone with his secret lover apologizing, cajoling and begging for a second chance.

Amber Frey told Peterson that she had been through some rocky relationships in her time, but now she was unwittingly caught up in the sinister intrigue of his wife's disappearance — and she wanted answers.

This morning, prosecutors played the Jan. 8, 2003, telephone conversation between the Modesto fertilizer salesman and the Fresno massage therapist. It's one in a series of phone discussions between the pair that investigators secretly recorded with Frey's help. Each one is being played to the jury. ......

Frey unconvinced on tapes

REDWOOD CITY -- On the same days Scott Peterson ordered TV pornography channels, he tenderly assured his girlfriend he cared for her -- and that he loved his missing, pregnant wife, according to telephone conversations she secretly taped.

Peterson maintained that he had nothing to do with Laci Peterson's disappearance, even when Amber Frey insisted, "All fingers point to you."

And, he vowed to volunteer in future search efforts for other missing people. Calling him a "pathological liar," his irritated girlfriend openly mocked him.

"No one will think your behavior is innocent," Frey said in one of five recordings played Monday at her former lover's double-murder trial.

He could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering his wife, Laci, and their unborn son, Conner, on or just before Dec. 24, 2002. His attorneys say he was framed.........

Peterson refused to talk to Frey about his last night with his wife, Laci

By Jason Dearen, STAFF WRITER

REDWOOD CITY -- Despite police and media suspicion pointing to him, Scott Peterson asked Amber Frey if she might be involved in his wife's disappearance -- all the while continuing to read her poetry and Bible scripture. Peterson's question came in one of a series of secretly recorded phone calls played to the jury Monday at his double-murder trial.

In a Jan. 8, 2003, call recorded by Frey at police request, Frey says people's suspicions will be inflamed by media reports of their affair. Peterson responds: "And I just, you know, I hope that you ... are not, um ... involved to any degree and ..."

"My hands are clean of this, Scott," Frey fires back.............

Can I Interest You in a Murder?

Can I Interest You in a Murder?

By Matt Hutaff
Aug 16, 2004

With each passing day, it looks more and more likely that Lori Hacking was stabbed to death by her husband Mark on July 18th. Having learned that he'd falsified claims of being accepted to medical school in North Carolina, police believe Lori's confrontation of the facts led Mark to kill her in a rage, then dispose of the body and bloodied evidence in a Dumpster.

With Mark having confessed the murder to his brothers Scott and Lance less than a week after Lori's disappearance, the only question I have is: why the hell should I have cared in the first place?.......

Don Miller: These boots were made for talkin’

Don Miller: These boots were made for talkin’

Food for thought: what kind of week would see both JULIA CHILD and GYPSY BOOTS pass on?

Yes, what kind of week indeed. A week that saw the California Supreme Court void San Francisco Mayor GAVIN NEWSOM’s gay marriage gala, while the news was breaking across the continent that the governor of New Jersey had resigned because he was being blackmailed by his gay lover.

The kind of week where sensitivity was on trial, and so was perhaps the tackiest, slimiest cheatin’ husband of the ... well, month at least.

Scott and Amber. Scott and Amber. Idiot and dupe. Killer and victim.

Not only were the phone calls that AMBER FREY taped extremely revealing about the unrepentant character of SCOTT PETERSON, but the dialogue will probably be the stuff of magazine covers and books to come.

The most revealing part, according to news accounts, was to see the looks on jurors’ faces as the phone calls played on. The defense had been looking like it might pull out an O.J. in this trial, as the prosecution and the Modesto cops had been giving off that familiar scent of bungling.

But it all changed with the calls. .........

Thanks for the ping.

The Judge on Fox this morning said that since the police were with Amber while she was recording Scott's calls, and how the police were telling her what to ask Scott, that Garagos could have the tapes thrown out because the cops didn't give him his Miranda Rights.

I was wondering about this. Entrapment?

I don't know the law, but I am concerned about this.

With everything in the article, the Post went with that ridiculous headline? He can lie to Amber. He can lie to the families. He can lie to their friends. He can lie to the investigators. Presidents and senators can lie to "the nation" but private citizens can not.

I can agree with that assessment. I, too, thought that once again some cops and prosecutors in CA had totally blown a slam-dunk case, but I think these phone calls will be all the jury needs to convict Scott. What a loser! Without these phone calls, he probably would have walked, but now I beleive he has assured himself a death of old age on CA's death row.

And on Greta, did you listen to Amber's (so called) ex boyfriend? He was the one who gave those Christmas parties, and Amber introduced Scott to him? At first I thought Greta was going to do a anti Amber thing... But this guy seems to stick up for Amber!

Did this guy have time to do anything else? It seems he spent every waking hour looking to have affairs. It is the classic motive for killing one's spouse, though I still contend the testimony of Frey may not be enough to get a conviction.

I don't think so. They, PD were investigating. Scott wasn't under arrest so, I don't think Miranda Rights were needed until they arrested him April 2003. Besides, Modesto Judge gave the okay for wiretaps. (just my opinion)

won't know until the jury decides.

Something I watched on Greta's show, Robert Shipero(sp) was on, and thinks the Jury will convict once all the evidence, or conclusion of the trial. Interesting...but what do they know, just the stuff being discussed at the moment... ;o)

I have covered a number of murder trials during my career in Radio.

There is one common thread. Juries are very reluctant to convict unless they are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt.

Every person on that jury will have known of men that cheated on their wives but did not kill them. Every person on that jury will have known of men that lied to their mistress about their wives. Every person on that jury will have known of men that cheated on wives that were on their death beds. Every person on that jury will have known of men who were absolute scum bags but did not kill their wives.

If the prosecution can not prove that with some solid evidence that he killed his wife, he will walk. Jurors are haunted by the prospect of convicting an innocent man.

Jurors will convict an accused serial killer on slight evidence. They are not only haunted by the prospect of putting an innocent man to death, but by the prospect that they may be setting a killer free to kill again.

But in this case, unless the prosecution can make a much better case than it has so far, I would be quite surprised to have a man convicted of murder on the grounds that he is a scumbag.

There are lots of scumbags that never kill. This is not nearly enough to get Peterson convicted.

Here's what jumped out at me:

He could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering his wife, Laci, and their unborn son, Conner, on or just before Dec. 24, 2002.

I guess the current conventional wisdom is this: one who kills an unborn child without the consent of the mother is a murderer, but one who kills an unborn child with the consent of the mother is helping her exercise her power of choice.

I would think even the pro-abortion side would experience cognitive dissonance over this.

Maybe they do. And maybe they think of it as one of those "gray areas" they like so much.

It's definitely not entrapment. This defense is usually used in the wrong contaxt when discussing crimes, and is probably about as hard to prove as insanity.

The cops basically have to get you to commit a crime you are otherwise not disposed to do. Just giving you the opportunity is not enough, because if you take the opportunity, you were willing to do it. There has to be virtually coercion or just an ubelievable amount of encouragement from the cops to get entrapment. In this case, he committed the crime way before the police wre involved, anyway.

He also doesn't get Miranda, because that does not apply until a custodial detainment - short of arrest, but it has to be understood that you are not free to leave. Also not applicable in this case.

The question is whether it was an illegal search. I don't know specific case law (I do corporate, not criminal), but basic principles would tell me that it was not illegal. Generally, depending on jurisdiction, a call can be recorded if one person to the conversation knows it is being recorded. Also, searches can be done if the person consents. So, since Amber consented, and she was likely (again, depending on California law) within her righhts to tape it, the tapes are admissible.

A California lawyer or criminal lawyer might correct me, but that it what I see from basic principles.

I remember some years back, that if you taped a conversation with someone one the phone, you were required to "tell" them. Not sure if that was or is a law or what.

I also remember that when anyone recorded me, there would be a beep on and off. I guess technology has come a long way. :)

"If ONE person knew it was being recorded." Oh! Ok.

You know Garagos...........he will try and use EVERYthing he can!

I'm sure the authorities covered their bases with this before they proceded.

Boy, this Scott is one piece of work! :(

A lot probably depends on state law. In NY I know it's like that, you need to tell the other party you're taping the conversation. Private Investigators though are given a little more leeway when it comes to that sort of thing.

Yes, that guy was at least loyal to his friend.

Did you hear the part about where he was in a restaurant with Amber and her brand-new baby? He got up to go to the bathroom, and when he returned, two women (whom neither he nor Amber knew) were screaming at Amber about her being a homewrecker. With the baby sitting (lying?) right there!

... and every person on that jury will have known situations in which the wife just had to know about it, but she went on and ignored it, hoping it would go away.

I believe Laci had her suspicions. If Scott is believed by the jury (ha ha, little joke there), then they will believe that Laci knew about the cheating and implicitly condoned it.

So if Laci already knew about the cheating, and wasn't reacting to it, then how come Scott had to tell very specific lies to Amber in order to have the period from late December, till Jan. 25, free, w/o seeing Amber?

It wasn't b/c his wife would be demanding his presence on Christmas and New Year's. It was for some other reason.

Have you heard or read any of the conversations? If not, I urge you to do so.

Deception comes in many forms. People lie, they steal, they steal money, they steal someone's life...

This all points to motive in a very special way.

If you aren't earning six figures, there is no way a California blonde trophy girl will give you the time of day. Scott Peterson conned Amber into thinking he was a rich man with a family in Kennebunkport and a home in Sacramento and a condo in Modesto, etc. Would Amber have had sex on the first date with a fertilizer salesman ?

Scott had always wanted a blonde trophy girl. But he couldn't afford her. To keep her he would need money. Lot's more money. Like Laci's insurance. His motive was the same as Charles Stuart's in Boston.

Common Tator..They have yet to present all their case, and of course, the defense has not presented it's case, though they were doing a great job during cross....

The jurors heard Scott yukking it up, almost giddy to his girlfriend,"from Paris near the Eiffel tower" just before the vigil for Laci, one week after she disappeared carrying his unborn child......

They will be looking at where he was "fishing" and where the bodies washed up more closely..by now there are those who hate him...It'll hang if he isn't convicted, IMHO.

I see her as a Trophy Girl who didn't have the ruthless opportunism to be very good at it. She wasn't tough enough. Too needy, too sentimental to adjust to the fact that Trophy Girls will be bought and discarded by opportunistic men.

That is a very plausible scenario and no doubt exactly how the prosecution sees it. It's just a matter of proving it now to the jury in a sufficient way and at this point I'm not convinced they have, though there's still time to go yet.

I got caught up through the Jan. 14 transcript.

There's a really comical place, in which Scott reads another poem to Amber. It is by some poet named Belloc, and it goes sort of like this, How was the party in Portland Square? I do not know, Juliet was not there; What of Lady [Somebody's] tea? Juliet stood by me, I did not see.

Well, what girl could fail to be moved?

Amber indicates that she doesn't see what he's driving at. So he says he's comparing her to the Juliet of the poem. So then he starts over, reciting, so she can hear it again. He says, "How was the party in Portland Square?" And Amber says, "Okay. Portland Square. Got it."

Scott pauses and says, "No, Amber, Portland Square's not important, it's that he can't be happy unless he is in Juliet's presence." (paraphrasing) Then, feeling that he needs to explain still further, he says something like, "Okay. Two guys are talking. Let's say John is talking to Jim. Now, John is in love with Juliet..."

Amber is still unmoved after the explanation.

So Scott decides to move on to something she knows. He starts talking about the book of Matthew, which she had quoted to him previously. He tells her he has been reading up on it. They end up talking about "the seed". At one point, Amber speaks of the seed which the sower drops on the rocky soil--it puts down roots which are shallow, and "it burns up." At this point I really thought Scott might interject a comment about some chicken he had burned...

Then he compares himself to the sower, and says he wants to get it right this time, that he wants to sow the seed in the fertile soil. HMMMM!!!! Does that mean he previously "sowed the seed" in the "wrong soil"?

In the 2nd Jan. 12 call, Scott says something weird on about pg. 30. He says, "I saw you in the mirror the other day." He tells Amber he saw her in the mirror, wearing a red sweater. Amber replies that in fact, on that very day, she had been standing in front of HER mirror, holding the red sweater up to see how it would look on her. Weird.

It is also revealed that one evening, Scott called Amber and couldn't reach her. So he called Shawn Sibley and asked her if there was anything wrong with Amber. Sounds to me like he's a little possessive of Amber.

And Scott again refers to the Covena house, and still does not claim ownership of it. He says, "I was at that house the other day, the house Laci disappeared from." Something like that. Amber replies, in essence, that she knows darn well that that house was the home of Scott and Laci Peterson. Yet Scott continues to refer to the house as "that house". He also refers to his warehouse as "the warehouse in Modesto".

Sounded like Scott was scared to death that Amber would show up at his door in Modesto. Right in the midst of all the uproar, and with the media standing by.

I have often wondered...When did SP find out that there was a GPS unit on his truck? The very first truck? These phone calls with Amber after the 1st of January make me wonder whether or not he knew the phone was bugged, especially when he says to Amber,

"I hope that you ... are not, um ... involved to any degree and ..."

This guy is pretty slick if he knew!

Scott wanted to totally detach, separate himself from Laci"the girl he was married to", the baby, "her" baby...his home with Laci"the house", " that house"..the business where he had only reached 23% of his sales quota.

He wanted his fantasy life..world traveller,bon vivant, multiple homes, holidays fishing in Alaska and hunting from Kennebunkport..

As to his vision of Amber..Recall his sign to the volunteers about telling Laci and he thought she heard about their efforts?..(He identified himself only as Laci's husband, not Scott Peterson.)..Weird indeed.

Yes! I thought of that sign, too!

But that sort of weakens my own interpretation of the sign. He phrased it a certain way, I thought, b/c he knew Laci was dead. But here we have him talking to/about Amber, the same way. But Amber's not dead. Yipes--did he have plans for Amber, too??

Translator's note: I think we can safely assume that when Scott says "everyone" or "everybody" he means "I". He talks about how "everyone who knows Amber" wants to be with her, not separated from her.

You mean Napolitano? Sometimes I find his conclusions a little odd. I think the tapes were already okayed, not that Geragos wouldn't try to get them thrown out again.

When I saw the title, I was expecting something about Scott Ritter. I see now that I was mistaken.

Napolitano does not know this case, has not kept up with the pretrial, motions or facts of this case...He should not even comment.My opinion and observations.
