Peterson is suing Grisham? Oh my gosh, that Peterson is only looking out for himself. Why doesn't he just apologize and move on. It would all go away...
"Apologize and move on? It would all go away?" Not in a MILLION years will this travesty of justice go away. D.A. Peterson is the kind of public official that scares the bejabbers out of law-abiding citizens in OK and elsewhere. Thank God for the Innocence Projects throughout the country that are shedding light on "small people with large egos" who are responsible for putting innocent people behind bars. That is a mockery of the Constitution, plain and simple. Personally, I won't be satisfied until such law enforcement people are made to fulfill IDENTICAL sentences in prison or death row, after finding out that their "assumptions" of guilt are proven wrong, as happened in this case. PETERSON GETS TWELVE YEARS: that's the headline I'd like to see in the Ada Evening News.

Wow, Bill. To stick with your logic, see how this scenario plays out.
Your biological father mated with your biological mother really believing that the best swimmer would enter her egg and a normal intelligent child would be the outcome. And he defended that right to so believe, even though the facts showed you up to be an articulate dumb-ass.

why is that jack ass still a prosecuter in the county or any where else. mr peterson you should hung by the neck.
The reason he is still a prosecutor is because you can't charge a prosecutor for Proseciutorial Misconduct because they have blanket immunity.

Peterson. You and Smith and Rogers are so depraved and the judges arevoid of truth that you all of you believe your lies as being throw truth. All Grisham did in his book was quote all of you and expose the falicy and depravity of your hearts. You and the others are a complete mockery of the justice system. Since the same evidence was used to free Williamson and Fritz you and the so-called detectives and judges ought to be thoroughly embarrassed and repent of your injustice and mockery of truth and justice. Then again all of you are perverted in your hearts and minds against truth and honesty. One day all of you will stand before the Righteous Judge who will render to all all of you your sentence which will be fair and honest and true and all of you will cry with deep remorse because the evil deeds of your hearts will be exposed in truth and righteousness. How many other innocent people have you wrongfully imprisoned. I would ask you to resopnd but I know you will not be able to because you would have to face truth and that scares you to panic and arrogance the only thing you know. You and Rogers and Smith and your so-called two judges are an embarrassment to life and truth. Peterson and/or his dark hearted police and judge department can answer but the rest of you; well never mind unless you too can see through all the deception of peterson and his team of untruthful people

Have lived here since 1981 and never understood how this man kept getting elected. And yes the police dept. sheriff dept. and da office should all be investigated. they have been and still are corrupt. The state should have step in. Had they investigated our local police and sheriff half of our public servants would have ended up convicts. Gore was telling the truth about drug selling to our finest. Peterson never cared who he sent away, only cared that he got some one convicted. and there was other wrong convictions. Both books were right on.

How does Peterson live with himself? The nightmare the two innocent men endured all because Peterson wanted to shine and be a big shot. Disgusting Peterson. Disgusting!

Bill Peterson is a self-consumed moron. If you argue right you can never be wrong. That's what he did but it seems that the rest of the town of Ada seems to have his moron gene. Maybe they are all related. Probably actaully. I will never step foot in Oklahoma ever in my life. It almost seems like the Middle East. He should have done his job, like most people do day in and day out. I can't believe he is still the district attorney absolutely shocked. John Grisham maybe against the death penalty but he he did win the argument against Bill Peterson. Whether either of them are right it doesn't matter because Grisham won the argument. By the way the death penalty is an unresolveable issue. Proving someone wrong makes you right.
Most people are related in Ada Oklahoma.Yet,The DA Peterson,was not from Ada.He had been put in office,by the older generation ,of Ada.Who had money ,& used the DA ,to cover their ass,& hide to illegal doings. Since this book came out,he was put out of office.The FEDS ,went in and found him & others were bad,up to no good.He was put out of office & faced federal criminal charges.
There is also several more counties in Oklahoma that are crooked.Murray County Oklahoma & Garvin County Oklahoma.Oklahoma USA,needs a shake down.The FEDS ,need to keep pressure on them and clean up .,the state.

Bill Peterson is a complete corrupt moron. The
books that Dennis Fritz and John Grisham wrote are
the absoulute truth. In fact two others were prosecuted over twenty years ago by Bill Peterson.
Tommy Ward and Karl Fontenot. They were coherce by
Bill Peterson into telling about a dream they had
to convict them. I am in contact with these two through letters quite frequently. Bill Peterson
will lose this case....I have the most complete confidence in it. If anyone has caused Bill Peterson alot of stress he has brought it up on hisself. I hope he gets what he deserves a slap in
the face and to lose his position. Bill Peterson
needs to feel the pain Dennis Fritz and Ron Williamson felt when they were locked up for twelve years. I congratulate John Grisham and Dennis Fritz on their victory. For those who have
not read the book "The Dreams Of Ada" please do so
I feel this will also, explain the devious Bill
Lets not stop with the DA.Peterson.Add Tim Colbert (Murrary County Judge)Appointed.Not elected into office.But had been appointed,was in office nearly 40 year's.He came in from Cal.(Not all people from Calif ,are bad)He had been ran out of Cali.Landed in Oklahoma.With some of his kin,who were crocked.Sometime after 1999 ,Colbert up and quite office.What happen?There had to be a special election,to vote ,someone ,in to take his place as district judge.
Now ,we have the internet & computer,& public records ,available..
There needs to be more outsiders ,more FEDS ,more investigations,into the going on's in Oklahoma USA.Don't stop with ADA.There is Sulphure,Davis,Pauls Vally,Atoka,just to name a few,more .Some one get out the broom,dust pan,and clean out that state....

As a defense attorney for over 40 years, I can only say that Bill Peterson is a disgrace to the legal profession and should have been disbarred after the Williamson case. What an incomparable egotistical jerk!!
