Drew Peterson sent a letter to a Sun-Times columnist to get out a message about his children.
Peterson wrote to Michael Sneed about the challenges facing his four youngest children, who are currently in the custody of an older son, Stephen Peterson.
Stephen Peterson is currently suspended by the Oak Brook Police Department as they investigate whether he lied about his father's guns.
Peterson said that between him being in jail, and Stephen Peterson facing a "malicious prosecution," the younger kids' security and well-being are in jeopardy.
"My little girl Lacy Ann just started Kindergarten with her daddy unable to be at her first day of school," Drew Peterson wrote. "Anthony is now in 2nd grade full of life and love just happy to be a kid with his friends. Thomas is now a senior, number one in his class, and now the Vice President of the National Honor Society. He is an athlete and plays trumpet in his school and area church bands. Kristopher is also an athlete and an honor roll student now in his Junior year of high school.
"All my children are exceptional kids just wanting a happy childhood after their little worlds were turned upside down almost three years ago. It’s not bad enough their father is in jail being held unlawfully after the state appealed a Will County Judges decision to not allow bad evidence at trial, but now my children’s well being and security is now in jeopardy again. For the third time, in less than three years, my son Stephen is again being brought up on departmental charges of misconduct by Oak Brook Chief Sheehan stemming from trumped up gun charges I’m now facing in a Will County Court."
