Scott Peterson's Death Row Digs Are 'Actually Quite Nice': Report

By    |   Monday, 23 Mar 2015 03:54 PM

Scott Peterson has served 10 years for killing his wife, Laci Peterson, and unborn son, and although the murderer received a death sentence, a writer visiting him in prison said he’s living a cushy life while awaiting the death penalty.

Nancy Mullane, author of “Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption,” told Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera exclusively that Peterson is living well in San Quentin prison, with a private cell and access to a rooftop basketball court.

“I saw this quite, I would have to say, buff-looking young man with his shirt off," Mullane told Fox. "And he was playing basketball. He looked like you were watching some college athletes out on a neighborhood court play basketball.

“Right now, while we’re standing here, Scott Peterson is living inside a single cell, inside North Seg(regation). It’s the exclusive. It’s the best that you can ever hope to serve,” Mullane told Rivera. “They have a basketball court, a half-court. They have an outdoor shower, an outdoor toilet. They have tables. And it’s protected from the sun by a roof. And it’s actually quite nice.”

San Quentin houses more death-row inmates than any other U.S. prison, Rivera said in the report, and Peterson is probably the most “notorious.”

Peterson was not one of the five murderers profiled in Mullane’s book.

In 2012, Mullane reported for KALW that after months of negotiations, she was allowed to see the North Segregation unit at San Quentin.

“These guys are the most compliant condemned inmates that we have here at this facility, so they get tier time,” Lt. Sam Robinson, public information officer at the prison, told Mullane when she entered the area and saw prisoners wandering around, some playing basketball.

In her interviews, Mullane talked to Curtis Ervin, convicted in 1991 of murder for hire, who said, “This particular program is not a true reflection of the entire death row because this is, quote unquote, an honor program. There are more privileges than East Block.”
