Senator Book reacts to the news that attorneys for former BSO Deputy Scot Peterson have filed a motion to dismiss criminal charges against him, arguing the state can’t blame Peterson for following training that was later deemed inadequate.
“This is exactly what I warned against on the Senate floor. As a result of wrongfully removing the Sheriff, the man second most culpable for the murder of 17 innocent individuals – a cowardly accomplice to murder- may walk free and receive his pension.”
