A juror in Scott Peterson’s murder trial will be granted immunity when she testifies in a San Mateo County courtroom later this month.
Richelle Nice is accused of lying on her juror questionnaire for Peterson’s 2004 trial. Nice has been accused of not disclosing that she had filed for a protective order against her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, whom Nice said was stalking her.
Nice also did not disclose she had been a victim of domestic violence. Peterson’s attorney accused Nice of intentionally lying to get on the jury to convict the accused husband. This hearing could be a pivotal moment in Peterson’s bid for a new murder trial.
