Bob Sirott's One More Thing about Peterson's defense team's sunglasses

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

One more thing about the Drew Peterson trial.

As you've probably noticed by now, Peterson's defense team meets the press every day wearing sunglasses. This week, a Cincinnati restaurant owner who watches the trial on cable bought an ad in the Sun-Times blasting the lawyers for being shameless and a disgrace to their profession; staging a Three-Stooges routine with sunglasses.

It does kind of give their press conferences a Blues Brothers quality. Maybe this is a look suggested by their client. After all, when Peterson was arrested, police had to remove his shades.

So, what's going on here?

We asked our reporter on the scene, Craig Wall, to find out if the prosecution might also adopt this look.

""I got my White Sox Oakleys which, would look much more stylish because they got silver trim and I look like the Three Stooges," replied state attorney, James Glasgow.

And before we let the defense rest, we'll let them present their final argument.

Legal experts say the media attention is often part of a calculated plan to help the lawyers annoy prosecutors, and possibly get book or movie deals after the trial.

I guess at the very least it might mean a foster grant ad. See you tomorrow.

    Dance raves for kids at NYC's hot clubs

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
