Nancy Grace Says Scott Peterson Can Never be Rehabilitated

EXCLUSIVE

Nancy Grace is heated about Scott Peterson, who she believes has NO shot at rehabilitation ... but she says granting him a new trial would be a travesty of justice.

We got the famed legal analyst Tuesday in Atlanta, and talked to her about Peterson's current appeal ... which could give him a slim shot at freedom. So, we asked Nancy the big 'if' ... as in, IF Scott were released after 13 years in prison -- could he be a reformed criminal?

We barely got the question out before Nancy started going off.

She also thinks Peterson doesn't really give a crap about his appeal, because he's living the high life in San Quentin State Prison.

Nancy had more to say about the chance of his appeal going through, and made a pretty deft pivot to plug her A&E show with Dan Abrams ... "Grace vs. Abrams." They're tackling the Peterson case on Tuesday night's episode.

She fired one more heater when we asked if she'd ever be a defense attorney ... for someone like Peterson. Spoiler alert: It's a big fat NO, but ya gotta see it in Nancy's words.
