EXCERPT
On December 15, 2011, Peterson was granted a new trial.  A judicial order for a new trial was made after Judge Hudson found that SBI blood analyst Duane Deaver had given "materially misleading" and "deliberately false" testimony about bloodstain evidence, and had exaggerated his training, experience, and expertise. District Attorney Michael Nifong who had been on the prosecution’s team for the Peterson case had also been disbarred and imprisoned for misconduct in the Duke Lacrosse case.  There was also other misconduct alleged in the Durham Law Enforcement community.

Peterson and other affected prisoners were released. The cases had to be retried because of Deaver. All of these cases would likely not be able to present any evidence which had been gathered after Deaver arrived at the crime scene.

Peterson’s new trial was scheduled to begin on May 8, 2017. Instead, on February 24, 2017, Peterson submitted an Alford plea to the reduced charge of manslaughter. He was sentenced to time already served and freed.
