Chicago —(ENEWSPF)–July 29, 2016.  Attorney General Lisa Madigan issued a statement today following Randolph County Judge Richard Brown’s sentencing of Drew Peterson to 40 years in prison for a plot to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow.

Peterson, 62, was found guilty in May by a Randolph County jury of solicitation of murder for hire and solicitation of murder.

“Today’s sentencing is a just and fair result for a serious crime that must be punished,” Madigan said. “This case proved once again that this defendant should remain in prison.”

Assistant Attorneys General Bill Elward and Steve Nate tried the case with Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker.
