    What will death row be like for Peterson? A considerable amount of mail flows into my cell from people out there in the world asking what it's really like living day-to-day on San Quentin's Death Row. I'm always tempted to quip, its's a hell f a lot better than dying here. But then I really don't know if that's true -- yet. I answer every letter even if the writer is rapidly pro-death penalty. It's easy for me to understand their attraction to the concept of killing convicted murderers. In the abstract, the death penalty has an elegant Newtonian --...

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - A jury decided Monday that Scott Peterson (news - web sites) should be executed for murdering his pregnant wife, Laci, whose Christmas Eve disappearance two years ago was the opening act in a legal drama that captivated the nation. A cheer went up outside the courtroom as the jury announced its decision after 11 1/2 hours of deliberations over three days. The jury had two options in deciding the 32-year-old former fertilizer salesman's fate: life in prison without parole or death by injection. Peterson clenched his jaw when the verdict was read and leaned over to...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- He was a philandering husband convicted of the shocking murder of his young and very pregnant wife. His name wasn't Scott Peterson, though. It was Todd Garton, and in 2001, a California jury said he deserved to die. "I signed the document that the jury found for death and I think about that a lot," said Fred Castagna, who served as jury foreman. "It was emotional during deliberations, but I don't lose sleep over it." If the experience of Castagna and others involved in death penalty cases is any guide, the jurors in Peterson's murder trial will...

    On the evening of May 4, 2001, actor Robert Blake (Baretta, In Cold Blood) and his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, ate dinner at an Italian restaurant in the Studio City section of Los Angeles. Afterward, according to Blake, the couple walked the block and a half to their car, whereupon Blake realized he'd left his gun inside the restaurant -- a gun he was carrying because Bakley believed her life was in danger. Blake left Bakley in the car and walked back to the restaurant. Nobody in the restaurant remembers Blake actually retrieving anything: He apparently drank a glass of...

The two are charged in the shooting death of the actor's wife on May 4, 2001. Lawyers for Blake and his bodyguard joined forces Monday to demand that their preliminary hearing be postponed until November, saying they are overwhelmed by evidence just disclosed by prosecutors in the murder case.

The high court ordered the sheriff's department, which runs the county jails and investigated the murder, to show the trial court the evidence supporting a special charge of "lying in wait" against the 69-year-old former star of the "Baretta" crime-fighting TV series. The special charge makes Blake ineligible for bail. The justices ordered the sheriff's department to show "whether...

Robert Shapiro, who secured a not guilty verdict for Mr Simpson, was asked to represent Mr Spector shortly after his release on bail of $1 million (£600,000) yesterday. Mr Simpson, a former American football star, was acquitted of double murder in 1995.

With O.J., Clinton and now Saddam’s defenses, never has the world’s moral compass become so tilted. Finally, comes the realization that the word IS to many, is not really IS. As many embrace the “all is relevant,” defense, facts become irrelevant. So what if O.J. was found guilty in civil court, Clinton was impeached and Saddam is in material breach. What one must realize, being irrelevant is the key....

    If you are looking for justice, you can find it in the Kobe Case. You just can't find it depending on trial by jury. Trial by jury is perhaps the No. 1 example of defeating justice that we know of. How else can you explain a scenario where O.J. Simpson walks on his beef, and Kobe Bryant might do time on his? Real justice comes from somewhere beyond trial by jury; justice comes from a higher authority -- God, if you will, who some lost wag said claimed it for Himself back when.

DirecTV alleges the devices were "bootloaders," for unscrambling the company's signals. Simpson attorney Yale Galanter was in court Monday and did not immediately return a call for comment.

    The judge in the Scott Peterson murder trial denied defense motions Monday for a new jury and a new venue for the penalty phase of the case, and rescheduled the process to begin Nov. 30. The penalty phase had been set to begin Monday, 10 days after Peterson was found guilty of first-degree murder for killing Laci Peterson and second-degree murder for killing her fetus. Jurors must choose between a life sentence or execution. "We're going to have to go with this jury," Judge Alfred A. Delucci said in rejecting the defense arguments.

They were told by the Supreme Court that since no...

    It was where she planned to start a family, and where prosecutors say he killed her. And now that a jury has convicted Scott Peterson of murdering his pregnant wife and unborn son, questions swirl around what will become of the couple's Covena Avenue home in Modesto. Once the site of media stakeouts, 24-hour police surveillance and impromptu shrines for Laci Peterson and the son the couple planned to name Conner, the house now lies at the heart of a legal morass involving criminal convictions, lawsuits and a loan. The single-story 1,770-square-foot home in the La Loma neighborhood was the...

What had been an increasingly orderly procession toward pretrial proceedings devolved instead over the weekend and Monday into a uniquely Californian freak show.
