Drew Peterson is due in court Friday afternoon for a hearing stemming from his arrest on gun charges. Peterson was charged with having an illegal gun after state police determined that a rifle of his had too short of a barrel. The gun was seized as part of the investigation into Stacy Peterson's disappearance.

The former cop's attorney wants the charges dropped. He says the gun was issued to him while Peterson was still on the Bolingbrook police force.
