Casey Anthony 2013Not surprisingly, the Casey Anthony saga has not come to pass. Casey Anthony is back in the headlines after 3 years since Orange County Florida miserably failed to prove she murdered her beautiful, well-loved 2 ½  year old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

After the shocking verdict in July 2011 and after spending 3 years in solitary confinement awaiting trial, she solemnly attempted to regain her life as a free citizen.  True, she was acquitted of 1st degree murder but was found guilty of lying to law enforcement.  For that she was sentenced to four years in prison with credit for time served but she would have to spend another year of probation under the guidance of Orange County Corrections stemming from a 2010 check fraud conviction.  With all criminal debts paid, Casey Anthony then filed for bankruptcy.

Subsequent to the acquittal, Anthony was bombarded with several bogus lawsuits. On July 7, 2011, only 2 days after she was acquitted, Tim Miller owner of a non-profit organization Texas Equusearch posed a question to the public.  Should he or should he not file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez? The public roared “yes!”

He claims he spent over $100,000 searching for Casey’s daughter Caylee. He’s claiming this because he says Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez asked for his help.
Where are the records of this phone call? Where is the documentation, a letter, an email?

I’ve searched the documents released and haven’t found one correspondence between Casey Anthony and Tim Miller.

The only words Tim Miller ever said was that when he was leaving the Anthony home, Casey said to him, “Well thanks for being here, I know she’s alive out there somewhere… So please bring her back” so he says.

Of course, at the peak of this missing child investigation, while on the Nancy Grace Show, Miller was more than happy to repeat her response to solidify what the general public already wanted to believe, Casey Anthony didn’t care about Caylee.

Thanks to the Sunshine Laws and Orlando local media, it’s public knowledge that it was Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony who called Tim Miller, asking for his help. And she wanted Tim Miller to look for a live missing Caylee, not a body.

Apparently Tim Miller paid no attention to Cindy nor to Casey’s farewell to him because he in all of his searches for Caylee, he never searched for a live missing child. He only searched for a body, a body which he ironically failed to find that was only 14 or so houses from the Anthony home.  At that juncture, his only lost was a 4-wheel ATV which he damaged while searching the exact area where Roy Kronk would officially find her body on December 11, 2008.

The irony is rich

quote Judge Stan Strickland.

So why did Tim Miller and his attorney Marc Wites sue Casey Anthony and how did he win his case?

This may be the answer.  According to The Huffington Post…

“Bankruptcy trustee Stephen Meininger wanted her creditors to benefit from her story, but Anthony’s lawyers objected, raising constitutional and other issues.”

Tim Miller and his attorney Marc Wites settled the suit. Under the settlement, Anthony will not object to Texas EquuSearch being named as a $75,000 creditor in her bankruptcy case, and Texas EquuSearch will not object to Anthony’s bankruptcy petition for discharge. But it doesn’t end there for Casey.

Standing behind Tim Miller in line for a piece of the “Imaginary Casey Anthony Pie” is motel maid Zenaida Gonzalez and the suspicious finder of Caylee’s remains, meter-reader Roy Kronk.

Casey Anthony Fights Back

Earlier this month, Anthony’s lawyers filed 2 motions asking a Federal judge to throw out both defamation suits. Her new lawyers say that the lawsuits are “spurious” and fail to establish “willful and malicious” acts which are the only way they are lawful.

Anthony’s lawyers went on to say…

“This travesty has gone on long enough,” Ms. Anthony implores the Court to end this matter so she can begin the fresh start she is promised by the law.”

Certainly Casey Anthony deserves a fresh start both legally and morally. Her new lawyers are fighting vehemently to get her there.  No doubt, her most valuable asset is the rights to her life story.

As I recall in the earliest days of this strange disappearance of a child, Casey admonished the press for their harsh coverage of her case. In one of Casey’s truthful moments she swore when this was over that she’d never give them a press conference. She told the truth.

Recently it has been reported by the Associated Press that Casey Anthony is asking the Florida appellate court to dismiss her four convictions of lying to law enforcement.

Casey’s attorneys, along with Attorney Cheney Mason are appealing the misdemeanor convictions on the grounds that her statements were inadmissible at her murder trial since she hadn’t been Mirandized.  Go Cheney!!

Mr. Mason, a well-respected Florida attorney who joined Jose Baez to help Casey get a fair trial fought long and hard to keep this matter out of her murder trial and off of her record, however Judge Belvin Perry Jr. was far too devoted to his  prosecutors to let truth stand in his way.

Shamefully Judge Perry also allowed “heart sticker on the duct tape” into evidence even though he knew Lorie Gottesman of the FBI would testify that there were NO heart sticker or sticker residue on the duct tape. The lies told by the media and prosecutors far exceeded the lies told by Casey Anthony.

In my opinion this was simply a desperate maneuver to tarnish the jury’s impression of Casey because what juror would want to acquit a mother who would kill her daughter with chloroform and as the coup de gras slap a heart sticker on top of the duct tape that she supposedly used to cover the child’s mouth.

At trial, prosecutors Jeffrey Ashton and Linda Drane Burdick were unable to prove any cause of death and the duct tape placement was inconclusive.

With Casey Anthony’s latest appeal, hopefully the truth will finally come to light. Casey was not read her Miranda rights when she was taken by Orange County detectives for the Grand Tour of Universal Studios.

After discovering Casey hadn’t worked at Universal Studios since 2006, detectives Yuri Melich, John Allen and Appie Wells decided to take Casey there to force her into confessing to something she didn’t do and without her pesky attorney.

It was obvious their only intent was to make her confront her outlandish lies. Instead of the officers putting on their detective hats and giving some thought for the reason WHY would this seemingly intelligent girl tell such ridiculous lies when the lies were so incredibly easy to debunk.

These Keystone Kops were so inadequate they didn’t even remember to read Casey her Miranda Rights at Universal Studios. Within seconds after walking down the hallway, Casey turns back around and says, “I don’t work here.” So the Kops sit down at a desk in some unknown office at Universal Studios with the mother of a child who hasn’t been seen in nearly a month, who’s told them lie after lie yet the only way they believe to solve the mystery is to ask her more questions.  Surely this was a set up giving reason to arrest her.  They thought by putting Casey behind bars for a few days that she’d decide to finally to tell the truth.  Little did they know that it would take months for her own attorney to gain her trust and learn the real reason why she felt she had to lie.

Ironically, while at Universal Studios, one of the detectives got a phone call from Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony.  She tells them that the day she came home from work on June 16th she remembered finding the pool ladder attached to the pool which was odd because she was always so deligent about removing the ladder. Hint, hint..

The next day Cindy related this story to her co-workers adding that she thought that perhaps the neighborhood kids were using the family pool because the gate was opened as well.

~~~

The Appeal

As for the appeal, Casey Anthony’s attorneys will argue that because Casey had been handcuffed and placed in a squad car, she was effectively under arrest and should have had her Miranda rights read to her. They will also argue that all four of her convictions stem from one single encounter with police which represents double jeopardy which is a person’s constitutional protection from being punished multiple times for one offense.

Does anyone recall a case  when a suspect caught lying to detectives were brought up on charges?

The attorneys for the prosecutors are expected to argue that 110lb. Casey Anthony was free to go at anytime regardless of the 3 or 4 big burly cops blocking the doorway. They admit she was handcuffed but that was only because Casey’s mother thought that Casey might flee — besides a supervisor ordered a detective to take the cuffs off a few minutes later. So not only were the Keystone Kops screw-ups, their supervisor was there too and though he knew she shouldn’t have been handcuffed,  he didn’t read the Miranda Rights to her either.

Earlier this year, unsurprisingly Casey Anthony was back in the news at the behest of former assistant State attorney Jeff Ashton. Jeff Ashton aka “Laughing Man” who sat so arrogantly, smirking in court thinking he had won the biggest case of his career. Fortunately he did not win but due to the vast amount of media exposure from the Caylee Anthony case, he did manage to win a political seat as an Orange County State Attorney.

Snipped:

State Attorney Elect Jeff Ashton confirms to WESH 2 News that when he takes office, he plans to find out how a major piece of evidence in the Casey Anthony case was missed. 

This was in response to a Casey Anthony news report claiming that someone searched “foolproof suffocation” from the Anthony computer June 16 — this is not breaking news.  Why Mr. Ashton is so interested in this particular trial faux pas is beyond me.

Has he forgotten?

The State computer forensic expert John Bradley erroneously testified at trial that he found chloroform searches on the Anthony computer 84 times. The next day the expert alerted State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick that this was an error due to an inaccurate computer program he used.  The jury would not hear the expert admit this error. Judge Belvin Perry simply didn’t inform the jury of the error or state the correct number of searches was “one.”

For those interested in the truth, on pages 180-181, you’ll find that Jose Baez’s computer forensics team discovered several computer searches months before trial. In Baez’s book, “Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” he revealed the “fool proof suffocation” computer search and more.

On the morning of June 16, the defense computer experts discovered computer activity. Someone logged in at 6:52am to 7:52am. This information jives with what Casey related to Baez — that she had woken up early that morning with Caylee.

The records also show someone later logged in at 9am to 10:59am. It was determined based on the type of searches made that the person behind the computer was Casey. Casey logged in to Facebook and MySpace. From there she searched for cute outfits for the shot girls. Being the shot girl manager, apparently she was trying to help her boyfriend Tony Lazarro who at the time was a promoter for Fusion Nightclub.

George Anthony

However, the computer records show another log in. At 1:50pm someone signed in to AOL Messenger. George had an AOL Messenger account, his user name was george4937. Right after someone logged in to Instant Messenger, someone searched “foolproof suffocation”. George, always a bad speller misspelled the term. Google automatically corrected the spelling and the first link clicked was “venturing into the pro-suicide pit”.

And as we all know, George Anthony attempted suicide January 22, 2009.

For those who want the truth and did not follow the Caylee Anthony case via television media and the internet, I suggest that you buy a copy of Jose Baez’s book.

Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” is a riveting story as to how Jose Baez became Casey Anthony’s attorney and all of the trials and tribulations he faced trying to save her life.

The story that he and co-author Peter Golenbock tell is a shockingly true and sad story of family dysfunction at its highest level.

What’s Casey Anthony doing now no one really knows. She has been in hiding for the most part due to numerous death threats after her acquittal.

It’s been rumored that Casey is interested in attending law school so I imagine these unlawful charges of lying to cops during an un-mirandized interrogation may stand in the way of that if she is planning on becoming an attorney. I wish her the best of luck and pray that she finds happiness in her life.

hammer of justice

What I learned from today’s hearing:

1.) BERNIE DELARIONDA says that ABC was present when Crump audio taped DeeDee’s interview.

2.) O’Mara complains, he doesn’t have a list of witnesses who heard screams for help. BERNIE DE LA RIONDA says look in the documents, look at witness statements.
De la Rionda basically tells O’Mara, look through the statements yourself! My question, why doesn’t the defense ask the question in deposition. It’s that easy.

3.) O’Mara motioned Judge Nelson to “Modify Conditions of Release”. He puts Sr. probation officer Adam Vinton on the stand to testify to GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’S compliance. He goes on to say that George Zimmermanis still in fear for his life, yada, yada..

4.) BERNIE DELARIONDA gently reminds the court of Zimmerman’s past transgressions such as his wife Shellie lying about their finances at the first bond hearing and withholding his valid up-to-date passport from the court which revoked his initial bond raising it from $150,000 to $1Million.

5.) BERNIE DELARIONDA argued to Judge Nelson that if GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was in such fear for his life then why did he appear on national television, why does he come through the front door of the courthouse with reporters at his heels, why does he continue to ask the public for money and presently offering his autograph for donations. Wouldn’t GEORGE ZIMMERMAN be safer if he stayed off of television?

6.) BERNIE DELARIONDA basically pointed out that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN is seeking media attention and does not agree with O’Mara’s motions because he constantly inserts inaccurate information which he knows will be read by the public. Here’s O’Mara’s latest motion.

7.) BERNIE DELARIONDA also addressed these meetings that were taking place before GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was arrested. BERNIE DELARIONDA added that he’d just received a letter, what he called Brady material from Atty. Jose Baez who is representing Investigator Serino. In this notice Baez says that investigators O’Connor, Randy Smith and Chris Serino wanted to charge GEORGE ZIMMERMAN with 2nd degree murder within 2 weeks of the investigation. See page 49 of 73 for Officer Santiago’s deposition.

8.) In the end, all of O’Mara’s pleading was for naught. Judge Debra Nelson denied his motion to modify Zimmerman’s conditions for release. Zimmerman will continue to live in Seminole County and continue to wear his GPS ankle bracelet.

And Thank God,
Judge Nelson clarified the “No Contact with the Martins” order.

*Next hearings are scheduled for January 8 and February 5.

FYI: George Zimmerman CaseID = 8337253

Somebody save him!

Help!

Sean Hannity asked the good questions and defense attorney Mark O’Mara’s client GEORGE ZIMMERMAN answered. What is O’Mara thinking while he sits there like a potted plant?

Here’s an article from the Orlando Sentinel offering the overall opinions of local Florida lawyers regarding Boy George’s last night appearance on FNC “Hannity”.
http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-07-19/news/os-george-zimmerman-interview-react-20120719_1_trayvon-martin-special-prosecutor-angela-corey-george-zimmerman

Quote from Richard Hornsby;

“It’s really baffling what he thought he’d gain from it,” said Richard Hornsby, and Orlando defense lawyer, who added, “I really question who’s in charge of the defense strategy, whether it’s Zimmerman or O’Mara.”

Well Richard. Welcome to reality. I’m happy you finally caught on. Your guy George is a loose cannon who never perceives his actions as wrong and he never does the right thing which is why he’s in the predicament he’s in.
If common sense says to stay in your truck and don’t follow a possible dangerous person, why would he use good common sense in any other situation.
It’s all about control for GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. GEORGE ZIMMERMAN controlled his own actions on the night of February 26 and he’ll continue to do so as long as he can. It’s time to take GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’s control away. He’s dangerous to himself and more importantly he’s a danger to society. That’s the truth.

Do you think O’Mara should use his psychological disorder as a defense? It’s been documented on several occasions.

I look at O’Mara as lawyer who’s being led on a leash by a crazy man. Who’s next? Jose Baez? You?

Barbara Walters Backs Out

Snipped from Orlando Sentinel article..

After rumors Zimmerman would appear on “The View” by phone, host Barbara Walters said he called, but “if you could not do the interview yesterday, I don’t think we should do a quick one today.”

Let us take notice that it was George who originally reached out to Barbara Walters and not the other way around. According to ABC spokesman, Barbara Walters had actually made a recent trip to central Florida in hopes of getting an interview with GEORGE ZIMMERMAN but came to a snag.
 
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN ‘s obvious arrogance and self-serving agenda could not be more prevalent. Here’s the snag.

The New York Post cites a source who said that Zimmerman demanded that ABC put him and his wife up in a hotel for a month. At that point, an “appalled” Walters lost interest in the sit-down chat, the Post reports.
 

Everyone knows George Zimmerman is thrilled by the fact that he is now FAMOUS. He absolutely loves being in the media. Finally, he’s outdone his brother, the attorney.

WooHoo For George!

 
He just gave State Attorney Angela Corey another gift that’ll be used to convict him of murdering 17yo Trayvon Martin.  Inconsistent statements abound.
 

 

See my previous article “George Zimmerman’s Love Affair with the Media

In this all-access pass, Baez reveals never-before-disclosed defense secrets and his experiences throughout the entire case—discovering evidence, his first Casey Anthony meeting, George and Cindy Anthony’s day after day behavior, leading defense strategy meetings and his weeks in closed door judge’s chambers.

Often described as a tenacious, “Bull-Dog attorney” Jose Baez has announced the soon to be released book “Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” telling of his experiences while represeenting Casey Anthony.
Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” is set to hit bookshelves this July, almost a year to the date she was found not guilty of murdering her 2 ½ year old daughter Caylee.

Jose Baez told People magazine he will reveal in the 352-page book how he came to be Casey’s lawyer and will give a behind-the-scenes look at their defense strategy along with graphic crime scene photographs introduced into evidence.

http://www.radaronline.com/photos/image/131794/2011/06/photos-casey-anthony-trial-evidence

Baez emphatically adds “Casey will not financially benefit from this book in any way or form.” “This is my story, not hers.”

In February Baez officially resigned from being on Casey’s legal team and he says the reason why will be in his new book.

Jose Baez avers..

“I was there from day one.
Other than Casey, no one else was there from the beginning.”
These are my insights into what happened”.

Although Casey will not be profiting at all from the book, Jose claims she gave him the go ahead on releasing it. Casey has authorized me to write it he told People magazine and went on to say “I have my complete and total permission.”

~~~

Hopefully “Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” will bring objectivity and insight into this highly controversial and unusual case.

For those who have asked themselves how could the media and so many people have been so wrong, perhaps this book will answer that question and more importantly understand why the jury got it right.

I predict Mr. Baez’s book to be in opposition to much of what ex-prosecutor Jeff Ashton released in his supposedly tell-all book released in November 2011, a mere 4 months after her acquittal.

~~~

Since Jose Baez has talked to People magazine, it’s been announced, he’ll soon visit “Dr. Drew” Pinsky’s show at 9 p.m. Monday, May 14th.on HLN. Be sure to tune in.

Job Well Done!

It is official, from the Orange County clerks office, Register of Actions, with his name crossed out, Jose Baez is no longer Casey Anthony’s attorney. The most notorious defense attorney in the country has moved on to the sandier beaches of Miami, Florida.

Baez’s withdrawal statement to the Miami Herald snipped;

…. it’s time to move on: “My work as Ms. Anthony’s defense attorney is finished. It’s not my job to answer questions regarding non-legal matters relating to Ms. Anthony, and I must attend to my other clients’ needs.”

It’s unclear why but the rumors are rampantly surfacing. Some claim it’s because of Casey Anthony’s recently released video diary, others say it’s a falling out due to Baez’s inability to land Casey a million dollar television deal. I think it has more to do with the simple fact that Jose Baez’s job is done.

On July 5, 2011, Jose Baez accomplished the unlikely task of garnering an unlikely acquittal for his client, 22 year old Casey Anthony, charged with murdering her beautiful 2 ½ year old daughter Caylee Marie.

Caylee Marie

At trial, in Casey Anthony’s opening statement, Mr. Baez immediately informed the jury that Caylee was not murdered but had died in an accidental drowning which I’m sure this knowledge played a huge part in Baez’s fight to save her mother’s life.

Defending a woman accused of killing her child must have been quite a conundrum for family man Jose Baez but it was a job that had to be done because as he stated in a post-verdict interview with Geraldo Rivera, to allow Caylee’s mother to possibly die for her death would be a gross injustice to Caylee.

After three years of unmitigated public mockery and ridicule, he has earned the privilege to walk away with his head held high. What more could a client want but to be acquitted of first degree murder with the possibility of a death sentence? Lawyers have quit on clients for various reasons but in this case, his moving on to continue his career is a fair and reasonable decision.

Truth Be Known

Tenacious and hard working defense attorneys are hard to find.

And who can forget his humble statement at the press conference, immediately after Casey Anthony’s acquittal.

A humble man indeed.

According to the Miami Herald, Mr. Baez has landed a job with a top notch Miami law firm. Not long ago, he was literally fighting for his client; being pushed and shoved by the media, having his personal life plastered on the internet and in Orlando newspapers.

He endured insults not only from the uneducated public but by a few paid legal analysts who underestimated his abilities and arrogantly scrutinized and questioned his work. Meanwhile, at no point did Jose Baez step outside of himself or stoop to their level. He was always a gentleman.

Jose Baez was recently asked to speak at a three session seminar called “Fantasy of Forensics, How Junk Science Failed to Persuade the Jury in the Casey Anthony Case”.

There, many of Jose Baez’s peers paid fees to hear him speak, contrary to his Orange County Courthouse adversary, ex-prosecutor Jeff Ashton who has set up a Pay Pal account on a social website, asking for donations from the angry public in hopes of winning a local election.

Giordano leaving Aruba

Since his sudden retirement after losing the Anthony case, Jeff Ashton has had two clients, his children whereas in comparison, Mr. Baez was consulted in another high profile case, the disappearance of Robyn Gardner, 35, who has been missing from Aruba since Aug. 2. The man she was vacationing with, Gary Giordano, 50, was detained there for five weeks but not charged with any crime. Jose said he was passionate to help Gary Giordana and was notably appalled by the use of cadaver dogs being sent in from Holland to search for Robyn Gardner two months after the woman went missing.

It seems Mr. Baez enjoys a challenge. He’s also representing Charlie Ely in her appeal. Ely, 18 years old at the time of her offense, was sentenced to life in prison for her part in the brutal murder of 15 year old Seath Jackson. Whether she is guilty or not, Baez is sworn to oath to do the best of his ability.

To judge an attorney by the cases he takes on is unfair. It’s the job of the defense attorney to choose where his services are needed. Instead, we should judge attorneys on the passion and persistence that he/she utilizes in order to defend their clients.

“The Ethics of Justice: Why Criminal Defense Lawyers Defend the Guilty”

Quote:

So regardless of whether a criminal lawyer’s client is guilty of the crime he or she is being tried for or wrongly accused, the defense attorney’s job doesn’t change: make the prosecution prove its case with sound arguments, real evidence, and reliable testimony. In a sense, the real client of a defense attorney isn’t truly the defendant at all but the integrity of democracy and the justice system.
Without good defense attorneys, there wouldn’t be anyone to protect the innocent when they are falsely accused. One innocent person is prison is far too many.

Oath of Admission to The Florida Bar

“I do solemnly swear:

“I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Florida;

“I will maintain the respect due to courts of justice and judicial officers;

“I will not counsel or maintain any suit or proceedings which shall appear to me to be unjust, nor any defense except such as I believe to be honestly debatable under the law of the land;

“I will employ for the purpose of maintaining the causes confided to me such means only as are consistent with truth and honor, and will never seek to mislead the judge or jury by any artifice or false statement of fact or law;

“I will maintain the confidence and preserve inviolate the secrets of my clients, and will accept no compensation in connection with their business except from them or with their knowledge and approval;

“To opposing parties and their counsel, I pledge fairness, integrity, and civility, not only in court, but also in all written and oral communications;

“I will abstain from all offensive personality and advance no fact prejudicial to the honor or reputation of a party or witness, unless required by the justice of the cause with which I am charged;

“I will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed, or delay anyone’s cause for lucre or malice. So help me God.”

Considering Mr. Baez’s rough start, first as a high school drop-out who enlisted into the military, to later attaining his GED, and then use his GI bill to go to college/law school is a remarkable feat. He is a wonderful role model for all young people proving that nothing is impossible, that hard work does lead to success. His tough work ethics were obvious in his tenacious efforts to show reasonable doubt in the Anthony case, albeit against exhausting odds. His family should be very proud.

Wikipedia explains more…

Baez was born in Manhattan, New York City.[3] Baez dropped out of Homestead High School in the ninth grade, got married and became a father at the age of 17. After he earned his GED diploma, he joined the U.S. Navy in 1986. According to his resume, he spent three years at the NATO base in Norfolk, Virginia, trained as an intelligence analyst, describing it as “Cosmic Top Secret” security clearance.[2][4]

On his return to civilian life, Baez attended Miami-Dade Community College and later transferred to Florida State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. In 1997, Baez earned his Juris Doctor degree from St. Thomas University School of Law, and after graduation, he submitted his application to practice law to the Florida Bar. In April 1998, the Florida Board of Bar Examiners denied him a license to practice law based on evidence of “financial irresponsibility.”[2][5]

Baez started working as paralegal for Miami-Dade County public defender and taught internet research to lawyers. He also started four online business ventures, including two selling bikinis and two which sold computer know-how. In September 1990, Baez declared bankruptcy in Virginia where he resided. In 1995, the Virginia Education Loan Authority filed liens against Baez for $4,336 in unpaid loans.[2] Baez also worked for Lexis Nexis.[5] According to media reports, his financial situation deteriorated in the recent years, with his home, purchased for over $670,000 in 2007, foreclosed and appraised at $272,900.[5] Demonstrating he had rehabilitated himself, the Florida Bar finally granted him a license to practice law on September 22, 2005

Onward, forward to more speaking engagements, Mr. Baez is invited to keynote a seminar “Justice Must Be Won” for the ACDLA, the Alabama Criminal Defense Lawyers Association which will be held June 14-16, 2012 at the Pensacola Beach Hilton.

Sounds fun and likely to be a success, nothing is nicer than the white beaches of Pensacola.

“The Irony is Rich”

One of the most frequently used quotes stemming from the Casey Anthony trial came from Judge Stan Strickland when he was asked to recuse himself as presiding judge of the Casey Anthony murder trial. This statement rings true in many ways.

GOOD LUCK MR. BAEZ!

Job well done!

~~~

To Jose Baez:

We’ll miss your commentary regarding the Anthony case here at theJBMission. “Ironically” your initials were the same as my belated mother. She was another strong believer in truth, justice and the Constitutional Rights of the United States of America. My self-imposed mission was to look at the Anthony case as she would.

Truth, there wasn’t any solid evidence that said Casey Anthony murdered her daughter.

Thanks to you, Justice prevailed and our 6th Amendment Constitutional Right to a fair trial are still intact.

Thank you!

Since losing the Anthony case in July 2011, former prosecutor Jeff Ashton has been quite a busy guy. He has since retired, wrote a book, is running for public office and has very recently defended his 21-year old son Alexander accused of driving drunk after blowing according to court records, .177 percent on a Breathalyzer test. Father Jeffrey Ashton, who is defending his son disputed the Breathalyzer results and pushed for acquittal.
Subsequently Alexander Ashton was found guilty as charged. Judge Herr revoked Alexander’s license for six months, he has to serve one year probation along with paying court cost and taking court-ordered classes.
And now we’ve learned that Ashton’s daughter has a “clerical error” on her driver’s license, just more Bad karma for the State Attorney hopeful and even more duties to come for lawyer dad Ashton.
But for some of us, it’s an impending nightmare.

Omar ponders…
I have to wonder if after today’s verdict, Ashton’s daughter will reconsider her representation.

I’m just surprised Jeffie didn’t call Arpad Vass to the stand and try to convince the jurors that lil Alexander had been chloroformed, and his inability to stand upright with his feet together was the result NOT of alcohol, but rather, of chloroform. That darned Casey Anthony must have had a vendetta against Ashton and the evil wench tried to chloroform Jeffie’s baby boy!! Luckily, lil Alexander escaped before the duct tape could be wrapped around his skull three times.

JFC agreed. “He’s very lucky to have escaped the dreaded Duct Tape !!!!”

• Yellow Dog responds:
 It’s no wonder that Jeff Ashton had to switch over and become a defense attorney. With kids like his, sounds like he is going to stay busy. I can’t wait to hear what this “clerical error” was concerning his daughter’s drivers license. How is Jeff going to campaign if he has two kids without driver licenses? Maybe he should drop out of the race and open his own taxi service.

Omar: OMG….I’m now having waking nightmares about getting into a taxi and realizing that Jeffie Ashton is the driver!! Ugggggggg.

JFC has so graciously given us just a glimpse of Omar’s impending nightmare. We should all be concerned.

~~~

Omar ~ Scene #1

Omar enters taxi “Take me to (insert favorite destination)”
Omar sees the driver’s eyes in the rear view mirror , as he takes a drink from his bottled water. There is something familiar about those eyes.
The driver appears to be laughing hysterically at some inside joke , as he pulls away from the curb. Horns honk and tires screech as he narrowly misses sideswiping a bus.
Omar hears the thunk of the electric door locks. Imperfect Justice (the books on tape version) is blaring through the rear speakers of the cab.
After a mile or so the taxi pulls to the curb to pick up Nancy Grace. Nancy enters the front passenger seat. ” Well, It seems that you have been saying some Naughty things about us Omar, Care to explain ?”
Omar starts to answer but is quickly interrupted…. “No No No , Don’t tell me about Free Speech and your rights and stuff, I WAS A PROSECUTOR DAMMIT” Nancy snarls ” And so was Jeffy here, until he sold out to the CRIMINAL side, But I still respect him”
Omar notices that Nancy is holding a roll of Henkels brand Duct tape in her hands. Nancy turns toward Omar in the back seat and then ……RRRIIIPPPPP….. Omar instinctively thinks it is duct tape being pulled from the roll , Then Jeffy says ” Nancy farted HAHAHAHA” . Nancy denies it , and blames the sound on the leather seats.

End of scene #1

Pleasant dreams Omar

Omar ~ Scene #2

Jeffy quickly downs his bottle of Aqua-Fina and says ” You did too Fart, and it smells like there’s been a dead body in the damn car.!” Ashton squeezes as much air as he can out of the empty plastic bottle and holds it in the area of Nancy’s ample rump ,,then allows the bottle to collect the toxic fumes before recapping it.
Omar stifles a laugh, but Nancy sees it and asks Jeffy for the Chloroform.
“What?” Jeff says with a stupid look on his face
“I TOLD YOU TO MAKE CHLOROFORM, YOU IDIOT !!!” Nancy screamed , with fire blazing in her eyes.
“I thought you said Clorox” Jeffy stammered. ” You can’t just make chloroform in the kitchen sink, you know ?
“Well, did you google it? rasped Nancy, clearly fed up with Jeffy’s incompetence.
” I was going to , but my wife won’t let me on the computer anymore” pouted Ashton
“Well, I guess we have to put Omar in the trunk then” Nancy bellowed
“Yeah , good idea. I have a tarp in the trunk , we can make pigs in a blanket ” said Jeffy
“Stop saying that , you sound like a Moron” Nancy yelled, one of her nipples became exposed above her low-cut blouse.
Jeffy covered his eyes like a schoolboy ,peeking between his fingers Almost hitting an oncoming car
Embarrassed , Nancy grabs the steering wheel. “Pull over, Let me drive, we’re going to Johnson’s towing
End of scene #2

Omar ~ Scene #3

Nancy and Jeff switch places in the car. Nancy slides in behind the wheel, and her stubby legs won’t reach the pedals, so she finds the lever and quickly slides the seat forward. Jeffy’s knees are crushes against the glove compartment door and he howls in pain.”Geez Nancy, you coulda warned me! ”

“Oh be quiet, you long legged giraffe” snarls Nancy as she snaps off the rear view mirror trying to adjust it.

“How come they don’t make these seat belts long enough to fit normal sized people?” Nancy growls trying to buckle up.
As they pull into traffic a cell phone rings , the ringtone is coming from Ashtons pants pocket.
“I said NO cellphones you Clown” Nancy says , grabbing Ashton by his lucky Jerry Garcia tie. “Don’t answer it !!” Hissed Nancy.
“But I have to answer it , It’s my Mom, she always calls me at 3:30 to make sure I took my pills” Jeffy says bravely.

Omar watches in fascination as Nancy demands Jeffs phone , then hurls it out the window.
After a few minutes of driving they arrive at Johnson’s towing yard. Nancy pulls around to the back of the fenced area, and parks the cab. Turning to Omar in the back seat Nancy yells ” I suppose you think it’s funny that you and your Blogger friends got me fired from HLN”
” Yes, I think it is Hilarious”says Omar
“Oh you do…Well then I guess you don’t care that I have to work at Fusian giving table dances for Roy Kronk?”
Omar cannot contain her laughter any longer, and Nancy grabs the nearest object to throw, which just happened to be the taxi’s rear view mirror. Her aim was off and it sailed past Omar hitting the back of the seat and bouncing harmlessly to the floor.

Omar quietly picks it up and slips it into a jacket pocket.”Did you know that my husband left me after you did your smear campaign?”snarls Nancy.
” Yes I knew that” Omar says with a laugh.
” I used to be a STAR , I was on Dancing with the Stars dammit.I was on the same stage with Chaz Bono, now thanks to you I am driving a 12 year old Subaru” said Nancy, almost crying.
Jeff chimes in saying ” And I should have been elected States Attorney, but your website ruined my chances”

 “This is Not about you Jeff, you ruined your chances by defending your children on all the driving charges” Nancy grumbles.
“Okay, let’s get this over with, Time for you to go in the trunk Omar”Nancy says opening the driver door.” We’re going to teach you to screw with us”
“I’m not getting in any trunk” Omar says ” you’ll never get away with this”
Nancy pulls a small caliber pistol from her purse. ” get out of the car”
As Jeefy opens the car door Omar is calculating the direction of the sun and pulling the mirror out of the coat pocket, with swift precision the suns beam was aimed directly at Nancys eyes. Temporarily blinded, it was easy for Omar to wrestle the small pistol from her hand.
“Okay, both of you, get in the trunk ” said Omar “Watch your fingers” Omar said as the trunk lid slammed.
Omar thought about calling 911 immediately, ….. or waiting about a month.
as Omar considered this, two patrol cars rounded the corner, “drop the gun”, one officer yelled.
After a few minutes of explaining , it was clear who the real criminals were.
“I smell human decomposition”, one officer said
It’s not me , it’s HER” said Jeffy as he was being handcuffed. ” by the way, how did you find us ?”
“Well, when you didn’t answer your Mother’s phone call , she knew something was wrong and had the taxi company locate you by GPS” said the other officer.
” I can’t believe My Own Mother had me arrested” muttered Jeffy with tears in his eyes.

Hello, I’m Jane Velez Mitchell, BOMBSHELL TONITE….
Washed up EX- HLN host Nancy Grace ARRESTED along with Failed lawyer Jeffrey Ashton in a stunningly stupid Kidnap attempt.
They will both be arraigned before circuit court Judge Jose Baez at 9 am Tomorrow.
For the first time in history Nancy Grace had No Comment.
End of Scene #3

Omar ~ Scene #4

 9AM circuit court of Florida city of Orlando in and for the
counties of Orange and Osceola
Honorable Judge Jose Angel Baez Presiding
ALL RISE: ……..Please be seated bailiff Perry, call the first case…..
In the case of State Vs Nancy Grace and Jeffrey Ashton et al charge of kidnapping with a weapon ,punishable by 25 to life, possible death penalty eligible.
“Thank you Belvin.”
“Yes your honor, Lamar Lawson and Linda Drane Burdick will be representing the state of Florida.”
“thank you, and have the co-defendants retained legal council at this time?”
Nancy and Jeffy are both dressed in orange coveralls. Jeff speaks first ” Jose, c’mon buddy, I can’t be tried along
with this woman, She is the MOST hated woman in America” ” I want to represent myself”
Jose reminds Jeffy that this might not be wise considering his track record. ” you know the old joke ~ he who acts as
his own lawyer has a fool for a client” ”well, I don’t really have a sense of humor, but go ahead and finish the joke ” Aston manages to babble.
Exasperated , Jose moves on to Ms. Nancy Grace, who looks like a rotting Georgia Peach in her Orange jumpsuit. “Ms
Grace do you have the funds to hire a lawyer in this very serious charge , or would you like me to appoint one free of
charge?” ” Mr Baez, I have run out of gas three times this week , and I drive a frickin Subaru” Nancy screams “of course I want a
lawyer”
Judge Baez studies a chart for a moment and declares ” Ms Grace. I want you to get Anthony and Fryer”
“Yes, I have Always wanted to do that !!!!” Nancy says with joy in her eyes “I’m sorry Ms. Grace , I think you misunderstood, I am
appointing legal council of Casey Anthony and Lisbeth Fryer”
“WHATTTT?”
Casey Anthony and Lisbeth Fryer silently take their places alongside Nancy. Casey leans toward her and whispers “What
did you think I was doing in those years of solitary? “

Stay tuned for intriguing updates as the saga continues!!!

Night after night, Omar’s nightmare continually haunts her…

Pleasant dreams Omar

Disclaimer: This article is a fictional parody written solely for humor.  Laughter is good for the soul!

For Entertainment Purposes Only

If Casey is silent, the bloggers are mad. If Casey is heard, the bloggers go ape.
What’s wrong with hearing a few sentences from Casey?
In my opinion, some folks are just plain mad. They just don’t hate Casey Anthony, they hate anyone who doesn’t hate Casey Anthony.
According to Merriam-Webster dictionary the word hate is defined as an intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury; extreme dislike or antipathy or an object of hatred. Casey Anthony has become an object of hatred. Casey Anthony has been dehumanized.

Hate is a strong word.
Hate deriving from fear may also apply to the Hate Casey Anthony campaign.  Was the Anthony household so American typical that others could so easily relate? I wonder how many households have had a loafer/bum in their family, one able bodied relative who chooses to live off of other family members who do work. Did this touch home with people in general? Yes, I think a lot of people could relate.

First impressions count!

What was your first impression when you saw the Anthony family? They looked wholesome, healthy, middleclass, suburban, hard working, run of the mill people who looked like they just stepped off the set of the latest CBS drama,
“Leave it to the Anthony’s” “We’re the Anthony’s” “What’s Our Line?” Take your pick, they were going to represent middle class America and Casey was going to be the trouble maker. She was going to go out one night, get drunk, get pregnant and have a child out of wedlock, bring a beautiful baby into the Anthony family which she’d use as a meal ticket for as long as she wanted.
Yes, we can relate. Many of us know of such a situation, daughter or son, living off of their parents. It’s not me, it might be you but what does it matter.
Why do the parents take it? “Because of the baby” Here’s a good television drama that will rake in the ratings because I know that many people could relate to this situation.
How do I know so many people could relate? Because I know that the death of baby Caylee Anthony was the most followed case in American history, maybe only second to OJ Simpson. That’s how!


Yes, Casey Anthony was soon depicted as the villain of the perfect little family. Or was she? Her baby was dead. Yes she was.

Little baby Caylee remains were found in an empty lot fourteen houses from the Anthony home in Orlando, Florida. This followed 4 and half months after Casey finally admitted to her mother Cindy, that she hadn’t seen Caylee for 31 days after leaving her with a babysitter, Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez. The world went “What!”
Myself, a person who always looks for the other slant, the mystery behind the obvious said “hmm” Interesting, who on God’s green earth does this? Who on God’s green earth thinks that this explanation was going to be accepted by law enforcement or the rest of the world? “There’s something else going on here”, I said to myself so I headed to my computer and did a Google search, “Casey Anthony”.

Yes, the rest of the world isn’t buying it hook, line or sinker. They’re angry as all get out and they’re ready to hang this bitch, but I’m not so sure.
As I’m reading, it seems that the media is reporting that Casey is a known liar, duh and law enforcement isn’t finding a Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez who will soon be referred to as ZG. Many hours of my time and others tried to find ZG. Did we? Not really, but it was worth the effort because nothing about Casey’s story was making sense even if she was guilty.

At trial, her attorney Jose Baez debunked the ZG story, saying she didn’t exist. She was made up by his client, onward, forward but it certainly is odd that his client was able to fabricate this person in such detail for so many years. ZFG first appeared to me as real in Richard Grund’s testimony to law enforcement. He said Casey told him her new babysitter was named Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez and this was said by Casey to Richard Grund at least a year before Caylee disappeared.  Obviously Casey wasn’t planning on offing her kid for this amount of time. If she had, she would have certainly come up with a better plan than this.

Sadly more mothers than I ever imagined have killed their young but never like this, never this complex. Again, there’s something else going on here and I feel this is the reason why so many followed and searched for answers much like I did.

The ones who wanted to share information and ideas were not welcomed on many blogsites. We had to converse with many people who were full of hatred and who had no desire for the truth. These people found their enemy and they liked it. They like the camaraderie of the Casey Anthony Haters after all they were all alike.

I never intended on making enemies in my quest for the truth to what happened to little Caylee Anthony. I don’t apologize for seeing things differently or having this blog.
I’m sadly shocked and amazed that because of a few people who delved deeper and came to a different opinion were considered a baby killer lover. I always thought they could have at least been more creative with the mnemonic for their description of me.
I don’t love a baby killer. I don’t have a problem with law enforcement. I do know of corruption in law enforcement because unfortunately I lived in New Orleans in the 1990’s.

Snipped:

There was one point where we had four New Orleans police officers who were charged with first-degree murder. We had two police officers on death row. Len Davis was the first police officer in the history of the United States who was convicted and sentenced to die for the murder of a citizen who had complained about civil rights violations under the federal criminal rights statute. He remains on death row today.

Len Davis was a police officer with New Orleans Police Department who, ironically, had more commendations and awards and merit recognition than any other officer in the department and simultaneously had more complaints from citizens. …

This is a must-read article which may give some insight as to why I’m not so trusting.
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/law-disorder/interviews/howell.html

No, this isn’t what I learned about Orlando Florida but I did learn through research that Florida is a haven for child pornography. It’s also a haven for escort services. A few escort service searches were found on the Anthony home computer. There are a few racy pictures that were found on the Anthony computer that have yet to be revealed to the public as mentioned in one of George Anthony’s interviews with law enforcement.

Where I’d like to take this article is a place where I dare not go. Lets just say, “its been implied” with no proof at least not from me but if you want to believe the prosecution’s theory, why not believe another theory because that’s all that prosecutors Jeff Ashton and Linda Drane Burdick had, a theory, a theory that the jurors didn’t buy.

To say we at theJBMission were ecstatic with the verdict isn’t entirely true although it was somewhat surprising to a lot of people but personally, I was happy that an American citizen wasn’t condemned to death without solid evidence.  I was content knowing that we were right and all our research and hard work was not for naught.  There was a different story to tell.  It was Casey’s story, the one Jose Baez promised.
Whether folks agree with me or not, it was 2011 when this not guilty verdict was read and we should expect forensic proof in capital murder cases. That’s the nature of the beast for forensic sciences. When in some solved murder cases a simple finding of DNA, 20 years after the fact convicts a man to life in prison without one mention of his name ever being a suspect or ever involved with the victim, forensic science convicts him. This happens and we accept it in 2011 and 2012. So be it.

In the midst of ennui, we now find ourselves, 6 months post-verdict, focusing on a video tape of Casey Anthony talking about her new dog. It’s laughable to me that this is actually newsworthy! And for this I get 3 or 4 hate comments even though I really have no comment.
The most sensational story to me is that THIS BS IS A STORY and that so many news sources including The Today show are mentioning it. I expected Nancy Grace, Jane Velez Mitchell and Dr Drew but not The Today Show.
And now I learn today, the word on Blog Street is the haters know where Casey Anthony is hiding. Yes, I did say hiding.

 “A United States Citizen is in Hiding!”

She’s not hiding from the police or her in-laws or husband, she’s hiding from people she doesn’t know.

That to me this is a story. Those who force this person to hide because of death threats and those who condone and protect these people should be found and charged with stalking.

Where is local law enforcement? Where is the FBI?

One, two, three…Three civil lawsuits have been filed against Casey Anthony!
• Zenaida Gonzalez
• Tim Miller
• Leonard Padilla

Casey Anthony lawsuits are like first husbands, you always have to throw the first one out. This is how I feel about Zenaida Gonzalez’s pending lawsuit. Considering Judge Lisa Munyon seems to be a no-non-sense judge, I think Morgan & Morgan are going to have to pull some fat furry rabbits out of their hats in order to get a 15K settlement off of Casey Anthony. The M&M’s are going to have to prove damages caused by Casey.
The World Awaits, unlike like the judges before her, Judge Munyon is not likely to automatically rule against Anthony in order to gain popularity.

Here Comes Tim Miller

On July 6, 2011, one day after Casey Anthony was acquitted, Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch appeared on CNN asking for the opinion of the public as to whether or not to file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony and/or Jose Baez for the return of $100,000 he says he spent searching for Caylee Anthony.
He cites Jose Baez’s opening statement, claiming Caylee was never missing as just cause and that Casey Anthony and Jose Baez should reimburse him for money spent and time wasted. Tim Miller has no proof as to when Casey Anthony admitted to Jose Baez that Caylee died in an accidental drowning nor will he ever know since this is client/attorney privilege.

Apparently the opinions of the disgruntled masses said yes. Tim Miller served Casey Anthony while she was still in jail even though FOX 26 legal analyst Chris Tritico thinks that because TES is a volunteer organization that they will not have a right to ask for their money back since they work for free.

I say, if Texas Equuasearch were an incorporated profiting business and Casey had paid him 100K to find her daughter, dead or alive, he should reimburse her because Roy Kronk did the job that Tim Miller couldn’t, even with 4200 searchers, 32 of them at the “hot spot” as he called it. Roy Kronk obviously didn’t need a 4 wheeler either.

Incidentally, Roy Kronk is suing Leonard Padilla for 15K in a civil suit. Apparently Leonard Padilla let his mouth run a bit too much on the Nancy Grace Show and tweeted some not so nice tweets on Twitter. Personally, I’d prefer for him to sue Nancy Grace since she profited from Leonard Padilla appearances, therefore giving him a platform to spew his speculation and mild mistruths about Roy Kronk.

Padilla, whose website lists him as “World Famous Bounty Hunter & Godfather of Bail,” had this to say to Roy Kronk.

“Truth is a defense to any defamation suit filed,” Padilla said in a brief phone call this afternoon. “In my experience and knowledge of Roy Kronk, he’s a [expletive] liar. I will give them time to add that into their lawsuit.”

Padilla, obviously looking for a free trip to Orlando during the lingering national media blitz post acquittal, is said to have asked Kronk and his attorney to pay for his and his attorney’s round-trip airfare to Orlando so he could be served with the legal paperwork directly.
Perhaps theJBMission should meet in Orlando to attend the trial.

On September 1, 2011, Howard Marks representing his client Roy Kronk filed a lawsuit against the National Enquirer for $15million.

Orange County, Fla., meter reader Roy Kronk, who found the remains of two-year-old homicide victim Caylee Anthony, is suing the tabloid and its parent company, American Media, for defamation, due to a story that that the paper reported about Kronk in a Dec. 7, 2009 report.

Maybe he’ll send us the airfare after he wins this one.
In all fairness, Roy Kronk, unlike Padilla did not directly insert himself into this alleged murder. Although he did admit in one of his several interviews with law enforcement that he was interested in finding Caylee Anthony by telling his co-workers, paraphrasing, “I bet she’s in those woods”, what came after was not his fault and the National Enquirer should not have ran this story titled, “Casey Anthony Says Meter Reader Killed Caylee”. I’d like to see how the National Enquirer proves this statement.

Here Comes Leonard Padilla


Snipped:
Now Padilla is suing Anthony and her attorney, Jose Baez, for the cost of those services. The suit asks for about 200-thousand dollars. Padilla claims Anthony and Baez accepted his help looking for Caylee, even when they knew the child was dead.

“We feel that we were conned,” Padilla told FOX40 on Monday.

“(Baez) mislead us, obviously, because in his opening statement at the trial, he said that the child had never been missing, which obviously concludes that he and Casey knew what had happened to the child, and where the child was dead, and buried.”

I say, Leonard Padilla was never asked by anyone to help in the Anthony case. He directly inserted himself in to the Anthony case as he enjoyed the media fanfare and did he really think that a murder suspect was going to be honest with him? He’s a bail bondsman, he should be used to being lied to. Again, what and when Baez learned of what happened to Caylee will never be revealed to him, client/attorney privilege.

In addition, if in a court of law, jurors are asked not to consider an opening statement as truth so why would the same court rule in favor of litigious media pigs who are using it as grounds for a lawsuit? Isn’t an opening statement for a defense lawyer simply a scenario in order to raise reasonable doubt? These opening statements are not arguable as they would be argued and proved during the trials. This is because an effective opening statement establishes the facts of the case and sets forth a legal theory and explanation for why the attorney’s client should prevail which is exactly what the opening statement was in the Anthony case, a theory.

As the rest of the world sits back in repugnance, litigious media pigs are still trying to make a pay day off of the death of an innocent child.  Enough already!

Jose Baez Bar complaints explained
Discovery violations and Casey Anthony’s probation prompted complaints

“”For the  FIRST time, the Florida Bar is confirming the general nature of the two ongoing complaints lodged against Casey Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez.””

==================The Matter in Question=================

COMES NOW the Defendant, Casey Marie Anthony, by and through her undersigned attorney, and, pursuant to Florida Judicial Administration Rules 2.330(h), moves this Court for Reconsideration of the Court’s Order Granting State’s Motion for Sanctions/Motion to Compel, and Requests this Court to Vacate Findings of Contempt, and shows…

The above link is no longer working. Below is what I saved on the matter in question.

In compliance with this Court’s order, counsel for the Defendant (Baez) and his office labored to provide all of the information requested. The documentation was approximately three hundred pages. Said defense wanted to fax the said documentation, but due to the fact that it was approximately three hundred pages in length, the Clerk’s office declined. As a result, Mr. William Slabaugh, Esq. of the Baez Law Firm drove from Kissimmee to Orlando in an effort to file the documentation before the deadline. He was thwarted by the Interstate 4 traffic, arriving at the Orange County Courthouse at two minutes after 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening the 14th of December of 2010. Mr Slabaugh was doing his best to substantially comply with the deadline, despite its volume. Please see Affidavit of William Slabaugh attached hereto as Exihibit “F”.

The traffic was heavy your Honor!!

See Section 6

Incidentally, Mr. Mason did hand deliver the entire package to both the State Attorney’s Office and the Clerk of Court the next morning December 15th. Most importantly, this good faith performance included all of the documentation that was not due for another 8 days, December 23, 2010.

Cheney Mason, author of this motion, further asserted that the defense did comply to the clarification of the 5 provisions set by Judge Perry in his courtroom.

Here’s what the Defense sent:

DR. JANE H. BOCK (Expert)
University of Colorado
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Dept.
Boulder, Colorado 80309
1. Dr. Bock curriculum vitae is attached as exhibit 1.
2. Dr Bock’s field of expertise or medical specialty is Forensic Botany.
3. If Dr Bock were called to testify, her specific subject area will be Forensic Botany.
4. The substance of the facts which Dr Bock would be called to testify, would depend on the following:
• Whether the State calls Dr. Hall as an expert witness.
• Whether Dr Hall’s opinions are approved by this court as being based on scientific principles (Frye
challenge)
• Whether Dr Hall can effectively survive cross examination.
If this Court should allow Dr Hall to testify, Dr Bock would be called to rebut his findings dealing with the recovery site and his conclusions based on viewing photographs of the recovery site.
5. A summary of Dr Bock’s testimony can be obtained from viewing her affidavit as listed under exhibit 2. She would rebut Dr Hall’s where he claims that he can determine the growth rate of roots, when he doesn’t even know the type of plant and without having viewed the root and seeing them from un-scaled photographs.

DR. SCOTT FAIRGRIEVE (Expert)
Chair, Department of Forensic Science
Laurentian University
935 Ramsey Lake Road
F-323A, Third Floor, Science 2 Bldg.
Sudbury ON P3E 2C6
1. Dr Fairgrieve’s curriculum vitae is attached as exhibit 3.
2. Dr Fairgrieve’s field of expertise or medical specialty is forensic anthropology.
3. If Dr Fairgrieve were called to testify his specific subject area will be that involving cadaver dogs.
4. If Dr Fairgrieve were called to testify would depend on the following:
• Will this Court for the first time in the history of this state admit testimony concerning cadaver dog “alerts” as substantive testimony.
• Will this Court allow a canine to testify, via a dog handler, given Miss Anthony’s 6th amendment rights to confront her accusers and despite the fact that all “alerts” in this case are unrecorded, and resulted in negative results for human remains?
The substance of Dr Fairgrieve’s testimony would depend on the above and to rebut the testimony of the cadaver dog handlers in this case.
5. Of course a dog cannot testify. In the event that the State attempts this unusual tactic, a summary of Dr Fairgrieve’s testimony is that cadaver dogs are a tool and nothing more, absent the finding of human remains in their searchers, very little can be ascertained from such alerts.

Jose Baez was sanctioned in January by Chief Judge Belvin Perry and made to pay a fine for this what THEY call “willful violation” of a court order. I see nothing willful about it and I definitely see no violation.

In my opinion, Jose Baez did an excellent job of compliance. Notice the 5 criteria’s are nicely listed just as Judge Perry ordered. Ex-State Attorney Jeff Ashton should have been a happy guy but in those days of heated debates and hearings, nothing was good enough when it came to Defense Attorney Jose Baez and his hated client Casey Anthony.
Nonetheless, I don’t recall reading a detailed expert probable testimony list coming from the State Attorney’s Office. Shouldn’t both sides have to comply to the judge’s order?

Next…

Judge leaves a big mess in wake of his resignation

On to Judge Strickland’s weary resignation speech. I can only speak on my own behalf but in my opinion, it was Judge Strickland’s choice, a very poor one at that which provoked his recusal from the Casey Anthony case.
He admitted he read the Casey Anthony blogs. He had his court deputy approach this blogger in his courtroom while the cameras were rolling. What was said between the blogger and he is not audible but be that as it may, he said he complimented the blogger which is all fine and dandy.
To take it a step further…
Weeks later, when Marinade Dave announced he was in the hospital for complications of diabetes, he posted  his phone number on his site asking his readers to call him. Judge Strickland, made another bad decision. He called the blogger.

This blogger was in every sense of the word Anti-Casey Anthony. Other than verbally slandering everyone else, the Defense attorneys included, his only rule was to protect the Anthony’s from verbal attacks. No Cindy or George bashing.  Other than that the blog was run of the mill meaning no different than the hundreds of other Casey Anthony blogsites.

Besides the “Ode to Judge Strickland” plastered on his homepage and of course the bragging of the judge’s call to him, on March 18, 2010, Marinade Dave made another reference to Judge Strickland.  On an older post, not the current one most of his readers were using, under a comment I had made, he posted this.

Note the date, Nov-30-2009.

  • I’m back. I had lunch. We all went out. Jose and gang, Linda Drane Burdick and
    company. I told them we wouldn’t all fit in Waffle House, but dang! We did.
    Cheney Mason even picked up the tab – plus, he left a big tip! Judge Strickland
    was telling funny jokes the whole time. I coughed in my coffee, it was so
    funny. The only sad part for me was that they all ate dessert, but I couldn’t.

What is a fine defense lawyer such as Cheney Mason to do?  Would it be ethical to have this knowledge and not ask for this judge’s recusal? If Casey, while being tried in Judge Strickland’s courtroom were found guilty of 1st degree murder and facing the death penalty, wouldn’t this be an enormous cause for appeal?

Jose Baez and Cheney Mason acted in the best interest of their client Casey Anthony. This judge had to go.
After the recusal, when it was announced that Judge Belvin Perry Jr. would preside over her case, the blogging community screamed with joy knowing Judge Belvin Perry’s death penalty record was a good one.

Of all of the judges in the Orange County Courthouse, he would be the one who would make sure the needle was stuck into Casey’s vein. The only thing standing in the way was the jury.
In a televised interview, after Casey’s acquittal, Judge Strickland tells Nancy Grace that the jurors had it wrong. The jurors were misguided because Juror #3 said she was sickened by the verdict.

In Judge Strickland’s interview with Nancy Graceless, clearly both seem misguided because “not guilty” does not mean innocent. It simply means there wasn’t enough evidence to prove her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. So be it.

Has anyone forgotten this is America?

And then there’s the matter of probation…

================Matter of Probation================

Not long after he made these statements, he corrected his sentencing order for Casey’s check fraud convictions and forced her to serve one year probation even though she was freed after her murder acquittal.  Even though Casey Anthony had a signed document from Orange County Corrections congradulating her on her completion of probation while she was in jail.

=================Matter of Timing================

On the same day, as the Florida Bar is confirming the general nature of the two ongoing complaints against Casey Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez  there’s talk that Judge Strickland’s appearance on the Nancy Grace show has led to a Judicial Qualifications Committee complaint against the judge.

Incidentally…

There another bombshell in waiting in the wings.  Yesterday, Judge Strickland announced through his counsel WFTV’s legal analyst, Bill Sheaffer that he will step down  after 17 years of service. December 31, 2011 will be his last day on the bench.
