Peter, who comes off as a harmless, pitiable, somewhat annoyingly loud eccentric, managed to insinuate himself into the conversations of individuals who had business at the trial. However, Peter apparently had business at the trial himself...
Peter Stephenson, by his own repeated assertions, knows Keith Reitman very well. Reitman was the seller of 1564 Hillside Ave. N., the property which was at the center of the entire Larry Maxwell mortgage fraud scandal.
So the question is WHAT WAS STEPHENSON doing at the Maxwell trial? Was he there to obtain information on behalf of somebody? If so, who? The only person with a connection to the trial who Stephenson appears to know PERSONALLY was, of course, Keith Reitman.
Kip Browne, Chairman of the Jordan Area Community Council, reports that "Peter the Pedophile" Stephenson's probation officer talked sternly to Stephenson about showing up at JACC meetings. Stephenson would frequently get the floor and talk about topics only loosely-connected to neighborhood issues, at one point actually discussing poor little North Minneapolis children who may have the symptoms of "post traumatic stress disorder."
If anybody has inflected stress on children it would be, of course, Peter Stephenson.
