Chicago attorneys Greg Adamski and Karen Conti, hosts of Tribune Broadcasting-owned WGN-AM'S (720) "Legally Speaking," will host a mock trial of the closing arguments in the murder prosecution of Drew Peterson for the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, on Thursday, May 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law. The event will be open to the public and taped for broadcast on WGN on June 14 and 15. "The People v. Drew Peterson" will feature Greg Adamski as moderator, Karen Conti as prosecutor and lawyer Joseph R. Lopez as Peterson's defense attorney. Retired Cook County Circuit Court Judge Richard Neville will preside. A professional jury consultant will be present to screen and select jurors who will be taken from the audience. We're told the event is intended to be an "educational exposition," based only on facts that have been publicly reported.
