CHICAGO (AP) -- Drew Peterson is asking the public for financial help with his legal defense.
The former police sergeant who is a suspect in his wife's disappearance has set up a Web site to collect money from people who believe he deserves a defense without going broke.
Peterson's attorney, Joel Brodsky, says any money collected on DefendDrew.com will go into a trust account over which Peterson will have no control.
Brodsky says the money will be used for legal fees and to hire a private investigator to look for Stacy Peterson, who vanished in late October.
Any remaining money will be put into a trust for Peterson's children.
Peterson has denied involvement in his wife's disappearance and has said she left him for another man.
