They didn't screw up. They managed to get disallowed testimony into the jurors' heads. Multiple times. It can't be "screwing up", it's gotta be their strategy. Face it, the entire case is built on changing the law to allow hearsay testimony which can't be challenged to be used to put this one guy in prison. This from the same agency who wanted to put Kevin Fox in prison for a crime HE didn't commit.Just think, now that they have this law, they can go after anyone anytime with suspect testimony. If I say somebody told me something, and that person's not around, how are you going to prove I'm lying? Or just misunderstood what I was told? I'm no fan of Drew Peterson, but I just hope some day I don't end up in court sliding down this slippery slope.
You're right on the strategy comment. The prosecutors are going to keep sneaking in prohibited testimony until the judge grows some balls and places sanctions on them. Every day there's going to be at least 1 of these "mistaken" questions, until the judge tells the offending prosecutor "I find you in contempt of court -- you're spending tonight in the same jail as Peterson".
