Convicted Murderer Scott Peterson Is Enjoying A Cushy Life At San Quentin (VIDEOS)

In 2002 Scott Peterson killed his wife, Laci, and their unborn son, Conner, on Christmas Eve at their home in Modesto, California.

According to ABC News, they received a copy of the autopsy, which showed that Laci’s decomposed body eventually washed ashore in Berkeley, although her “head and parts of her limbs were missing and plastic tape was wrapped around the neck of her child.”

Scott Peterson was eventually tracked down in San Diego, with bleached blonde hair, a goatee and moustache, $15,000 in cash and a loaded handgun. He has never expressed remorse for killing his wife and child.

LATimes reported in 2003 that Sharon Rocha, Laci’s mother, implored:

I can only hope that the sound of Laci’s voice begging for her life, and for the life of her unborn child, is heard over and over and over again in the mind of that person every day for the rest of his life.


Today, as he has been for the past ten years, Scott Peterson is on death row at San Quentin prison. San Quentin is situated in Marin County on the San Francisco Bay with stunning views of Mount Tamalpais and the San Francisco and Oakland skylines. The weather is mild. San Quentin is prime real estate. Developers have offered the State of California billions of dollars for the 432-acre peninsula.

Apparently, Scott Peterson is enjoying a cushy lifestyle at the prison, with his own private cell, and is afforded the opportunity to spend up to 5 hours per day outside his cell, lifting weights, playing basketball, or simply socializing with other inmates. He is also allowed access to the rooftop garden, which most prisoners do not get.

Geraldo Rivera has revived this story and interviewed Nancy Mullane once again. Mullane points out that most prisoners on death row in California are in their cells 23 or 24 hours a day, in solitary confinement, without getting out or having any contact with other prisoners. Mullane said:

They are not having the life Scott Peterson is having. Scott Peterson has an exclusive life inside San Quentin.

As Debbi Baker from UT San Diego put it:

The man whose crime was called “cruel, uncaring, heartless and callous,” by the judge who sentenced him, is playing basketball in the prison that overlooks the bay in which he dumped his wife’s body.
