CHICAGO – An attorney for Drew Peterson says the former Bolingbrook police sergeant whose wife disappeared a year ago has met with a prominent divorce attorney.
Joel Brodsky says Peterson met with Jeffery Leving sometime after the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of Stacy Peterson.
Drew Peterson has been named a suspect in the October 2007 disappearance of his wife. But he has not been charged in the case and authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
Brodsky says Peterson has not filed for divorce. But he says Peterson went to see the attorney to get information about his rights and obligations.
Under Illinois law, willful abandonment or desertion for at least one year is grounds for divorce.
