Peterson could have view of bay where wife, child found

SACRAMENTO (AP) - Scott Peterson could spend his remaining years catching glimpses of the bay where he launched his boat on Christmas Eve 2002, not far from where the bodies of his pregnant wife and unborn child eventually floated to shore. Now convicted of their murders, Peterson will be transported to San Quentin State Prison overlooking San Francisco Bay if the jury recommends a death sentence following a hearing that begins Monday.

Cell doors on two of the three units at San Quentin look past walkways patrolled by rifle-toting guards, out at the same water that doomed Peterson when jurors didn't buy his alibi, that he just happened to be fishing when his wife, Laci Peterson, disappeared. The rooftop exercise yard on the original 1934 death row building, which now houses 68 of the best behaved condemned inmates, also overlooks the bay.

Should Peterson, 32, be sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole, he would almost certainly be sent to one of the state's eight maximum security prisons.

There, protecting him from the rough justice of his fellow inmates would be paramount.

.............

Most likely, Peterson would go to the protective housing unit at California State Prison in Corcoran.

That's the prison home of cult leader Charles Manson, and Sirhan Sirhan, who assassinated Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. Mass murderer Juan Corona lives there, as does Mikhail Markhasev, who killed the son of entertainer Bill Cosby.

Alternatively, he could be sent to a "sensitive needs yard" at one of several prisons. Those are reserved for child molesters, former police officers, repentant gang members or others who would likely be endangered were they allowed into the general prison population.

A local news station did interviews with Folsom inmates. Each one said he wouldn't last a month. Oh well... justice one way or the other.

Some might not agree, but I would rather see him spend the rest of his days in prison ALIVE so he could become a John Boy for those cute prison dudes :-) --- would that not be a just end for the guy who was banging Amber after killing his wife and son...with no remorse. He would have made a good Massachusetts democrat.

Sick people deserve a sick end.

He will be in a PC unit, or Death Row. Isolation.

He will only be in the general prison population if he gets life without parole. That is where he would be in the most danger. If he gets the death penalty he will get a special cell ... a TV but no computer access.

I am a for the death penalty, but in this case I would like to see him rot in a prison cell for the rest of his life right next to the bay where he sank Laci with Conner. That way he would have a daily reminder of his deeds.

Another option would be Pelican Bay. He could have the fog/mist and on the water reminder there also.

I'd prefer it if he had the same view Laci and Connor got.

I agree with you, life w/o parole! Not only the "John Boy" thing, but so he has the rest of his life to think about what he did and why he is there.

I don't know if there's such a thing as a ghost or not, but if there is, I hope Laci and Conner haunt him for all his days.

Peterson does not have a conscience. He will never give a thought to his wife and baby.

I resent him getting a bay view apartment.
