I really do not think the jury will give him the death sentence. Am I in the minority?

"I really do not think the jury will give him the death sentence. Am I in the minority?"

I agree, I don't think he'll get death either. I think the jury will lean on the conservative side and spare his life. The absense of overwhelmingly real physical evidence leads me to believe that he'll get life - hopefully without possiblility of parole. He's been a waste of tax payer money. Let him rot in prison or give him death, it's all the same to me.

I don't expect the death penalty to be imposed either babaloo.

The jury will decide (IMHO) that it will be far more severe a punishment to sentence Scotty-boy to life without the possiblity of parole, so he can "think about" the deaths of his wife and unborn son for the rest of his life.

That also leaves open the possibility that one day Scotty might be out in the general population and as Jackie Gleason might have said:

"BANG...ZOOM...to the MOON Scotty!!!!"

The prosecution's jury advisor was on Geraldo last night and pointed out that the jury has already agreed unanimously that Peterson meets the Special Circumstance criteria.

He read that as an indication that this jury could, indeed, be inclined to give him the death penalty.

We have more circus acts coming up, yet, provided by Geragos. But I will not be surprised at all to see Scott end up on Death Row.

Have you talked to a single person who thought there was even a possibility that he didn't do it? I mean other than here, where we watched Clinton get away with murder (in some cases literally!) and OJ be aquitted, so we tend to expect pathetic surprises from the Justice system. But out there, it's a slam dunk that Scott is the demon Distaso painted him as.

I'm betting on Death recommendation. Delucchi is free to have LWOP as the sentence ultimately imposed, but Scott has no friends on the this jury, imo.

If Scott gets life in prison I wish that part of his sentencing would be to have to look at the last picture of Laci alive and also a picture of the autopsy remains.
