LOS ANGELES – In a plea to the public to help “free the man we know is innocent,” Scott Peterson’s attorney is seeking donations to continue the investigation into the murders of Peterson’s wife and the fetus she carried.
Los Angeles defense lawyer Mark Geragos has set up a Web site seeking financial help in the continuing search for what the defense regards as the real killer.
“We believe Scott Peterson has been unjustly convicted. This site will continue to monitor the happenings in this case until justice is finally served,” the site reads. “With your support, you can help us continue to investigate the murders of Laci and Conner Peterson so that we can free the man we know is innocent.”
The site notes that donations will be used only for investigators, not for attorneys’ fees.
“For Scott to get the justice he deserves, the investigation must continue. Unfortunately this does not come without a price,” the site reads.
