Amber Frey's testamony has only made this trial that much more sordid. I surely can't imagine that Peterson could ever be painted in a worse light
than he is at the hands of Frey. His telling her that he was calling from France to explain his inability to spend time with her. Calling her while
the candlelight vigil was being set up.
Certainly, Frey is besmirching her own character by revealing the intimate details of their affair. Although she is clearly a victim, she is hardly a
sympathetic character. I do agree that she is very brave to testify to these matters or she is the consummate exhibitionist.
Most legal pundits believe that Frey's testamony is of little consequence and that the defense will have little reason to cross-examine her at
It remains to be seen if Peterson will take the stand. Most legal pundits even if they believe he commited the murder, do not believe that the
prosecution has as yet, established guilt.
I still feel that the case does not stack up. Peterson was clearly a vulnerable man and even if those who killed Laci, assuming that Peterson, did
not, could not have picked a better target, considering how guilty Peterson would appear.
Whatever the verdict, I would say that Peterson's life is over. Unless, of course, he's offered his own reality TV show.
