"Tom Petters is not Osama bin Laden," says his attorney Jon Hopeman.
Well then, that settles that: better let him go.
A total of three of Petters associates have now pleaded guilty and are cooperating with the prosecution. Hopeman also added that "[Petters] is not guilty. He intends to fight the charges against him."
According to reports, Petters, who’s been denied bail, “has spent his time reflecting while sitting in the SherburneCounty jail and has taken to reading some religious material and visiting regularly with a pastor.”
