    Default Scott Peterson - what he's doin' now

    INSIDE STORY: Scott Peterson's Life on Death Row

    By Vickie Bane
    Originally posted Saturday April 11, 2009 10:45 AM EDT
    Photo by: San Quentin State Prison Sitting in a 4-by-9-foot cell on San Quentin's Death Row, Scott Peterson doesn't have a lot of choices in life, but he can decide how to decorate his wall.

    While many cons plaster their cells with pictorial collages, Peterson has only one photo hanging across from his bunk: a smiling shot of him and his wife, Laci.

    It's a much different pose from his most recent mug shot taken in June of 2007 where his dark hair was clipped short by fellow cons in the exercise yard. Under his half-smiling face is a placard with his inmate number and the word: "Condemned."

    Peterson, 36, was sentenced to death by lethal injection in March of 2005 after being convicted of murdering Laci and their unborn son, Conner, and tossing them in the San Francisco Bay on Christmas Eve day of 2002. His case is on appeal, which means he isn't likely to face execution for two decades.

    In the four years he has called San Quentin home, not much has changed except the view: eight months ago Peterson moved from a fifth tier cell on East Block with a slivered view of the bay to being "on the yard side," says Samuel Robinson, a lieutenant with the California Department of Corrections who has been at San Quentin since before Peterson arrived.

    Plays Cards, Basketball

    It's the same yard where Peterson now spends five hours a day shooting hoops, doing pull-ups and playing cards with other inmates like William Noguera, a prison artist who was convicted of murder for financial gain in 1983. "There are a group of guys that he hangs with," Robinson tells PEOPLE, "but it's not anyone of any (criminal) notoriety."

    Predictions that Peterson might be ostracized or worse because of Conner's death have proven not to be true. "In Scott's case," says Robinson, "the perception [among the inmates] is that he killed his wife, and yeah she was pregnant, but he killed his wife. He hasn't encountered the challenges others face who have killed kids individually."

    Robinson says Peterson still gets regular visits several each month from family and friends. He also receives numerous letters from female admirers who send him checks for his commissary account. "He has a significant amount of money in his account from people all over the world," says Robinson. Peterson can spend $180 a month on items such as soda, candy, cookies, toothpaste and deodorant.

    Blogging from Prison

    Peterson's only communication with the outside world is the blogging he has done for nearly a year on his family's Web site: scottpetersonappeal.org, where he comments on his case and news events. Since Robinson says inmates are not allowed to have computers or access the Internet, his blogs are composed on a typewriter and mailed to his family to post. His most recent post, headlined "Media spotlight wrong again," concerned the arrest of a man in the Chandra Levy murder.

    Despite being locked in a cell for 19 hours a day, Robinson believes Peterson has adjusted well to his confinement. "You're still able to forge relationships with people who live around you and you try to make the most of your condition," says Robinson. "I think that's what Scotty is doing."

    I never really followed the case; so we all believe he did it? I need to read up on everything. It's pretty much understood that he did it, right?

    ^ They're all commitment phobes. Nothing says "absence makes the heart grow fonder" like dating a guy in prison.

    Well it sure looks like he's doing 'hard time.' How sweet that in "their heirarchy" killing a woman is o.k. and the dead baby didn't count. He'll have another two decades of reprieve from his appeals.

    I've never been totally convinced that he did it.

    Nah, he did it. The sociopath told his mistress that he was a widower (weeks) before his wife died. He told her that he would be spending Christmas alone that year (wife had died) and then she disappeared on Christmas Eve...

    Then when she disappeared, he was trying to sell her shit (including her vehicle and their house) when she had been missing only a few weeks..... he was also calling his mistress to hook up and pretending like nothing happened (she found out through the media what was going on).

    Does that sound like an innocent man that just had his 8 months pregnant wife disappear, the day before Christmas?


    There was some other shit he did that was beyond guilty, but I can't remember all the details...

    i followed this story from day one & have no doubt in my mind that he did it. i couldn't believe what a publicly callous jerk he was during the time his wife was "missing".

    I don't think it's that simple. I think they are women who like knowing exactly where their men are at all times. The men can't abandon them. Some are famewhores who like the notoriety. Many have this annoying need to save people. Some of them like having a cause to devote themselves to, because they don't have much else going on. Regardless, they're all in need of psychiatric interventions. I wonder if Scientology can cure it...?

    He's definitely got the crazy eyes now. I guess death row will do that to a person.
