    Hypnosis testimony use 'a risk'Hypnosis testimony use 'a risk' By JOHN COTÉ BEE STAFF WRITER Published: September 10, 2003, 04:50:01 AM PDT Investigators handling the double-murder case against Scott Peterson used an increasingly rare and legally risky tactic by interviewing a witness using "hypnosis techniques," legal observers said Tuesday. "They're taking a risk," said Dr. David Spiegel, associate chairman of psychiatry at Stanford University. "There must be some reason why they want to take that risk." The jeopardy stems from a state law passed in 1984 that severely restricts the use of information from a hypnotized witness at trial --...

The significance is unknown, given a court-imposed gag order on the double-murder case that prevents either side from discussing evidence. But that hasn't prevented a host of theories from pundits, observers and experts on what the plastic may or may not mean. There appear to be...

    Day 4 Scott Peterson Case The Associated Press November 3, 2003 Defense attorneys in the Laci Peterson murder case Monday challenged the type of DNA analysis done on a hair found in Scott Peterson's boat, saying the technique is too unreliable to be used in court. Prosecutors believe the hair, found in a pair of pliers in the boat, could be from Peterson's wife, Laci, the mother-to-be who disappeared last December. An FBI crime lab supervisor testified during the preliminary hearing last week that mitochondrial DNA from the hair matched a gene swab taken earlier this year from Laci Peterson's...
