Juror: Peterson Prosecution Helping Defense's Case

Dismissed Peterson juror criticizes prosecution

A juror dismissed from the Scott Peterson trial says the prosecution doesn't have much of a case. Justin Falconer tells CBS' "The Early Show" he didn't believe arguments that Peterson was motivated to kill his pregnant wife by an affair he was having with a massage therapist, or by financial concerns. Falconer was replaced yesterday by an alternate. He also tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that witnesses called by the prosecution so far have actually helped the defense. The judge didn't specify why Falconer was dismissed.

But the ex-juror says the deciding factor was a videotaped exchange of him joking briefly inside the courthouse with Laci Peterson's brother.
