Tag Archive: Judge Belvin Perry Jr

I’m pleased to report today that Judge Belvin Perry Jr. of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court has come to a decision regarding money allegedly owed to Orange County Florida by recently acquitted Casey Anthony.
Casey Anthony, mother of Caylee Anthony was acquitted July 5, 2011 of all major charges regarding the death of her daughter Caylee Marie Anthony.
Subsequently, then Assistant State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick who lost the case, quickly filed a motion holding Casey Anthony liable for all investigation and court costs. She contends, had Casey Anthony told the truth, they would not have wasted OCSO or the Orange County Court’s time and money.

This matter came before the Court for a hearing on September 2, 2011. Linda Drane Burdick presented an itemized statement totaling over $515,000.
Casey Anthony’s defense attorney Cheney Mason argued that the false statements, which led to the Defendant’s convictions for providing false information to a law enforcement officer, related to a missing person investigation, and testimony provided at the hearing indicated that as of September 30, 2008, there was no longer a missing person investigation but a homicide investigation.

For this, he contends that all investigative costs should have stopped as of September 30th since it was sworn by the lead detective Yuri Melich on the stand, during the trial that “they” meaning the investigators had officially stopped looking for a “live” Caylee so all monies spent from this point on was not to prosecute Anthony on her daughter’s disappearance but to prosecute her on first degree murder.
However the issue isn’t completely resolved.

Judge Perry added:
(snipped from Motion)

Further, upon review of the investigative costs expense reports filed by the OCSO, the Court found that several of these reports were not adequately broken down in order to determine the work performed during the time from July 15, 2008 through September 29, 2008. Therefore, in order to reimburse OCSO for additional investigative work performed during the applicable time period, OCSO is directed to file revised investigative costs expense reports that the state the investigative work performed from July 15, 2008 through September 29, 2008 for the below listed OCSO employees. The revised investigative costs expense reports shall be filed with the Court, by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, September 19, 2011.

These are the OCSO employees who inadequately broke down their reports.

John Allen, Yuri Melich, Tanya DePalmo, Awilda McBryde, Kelly DeGuzman, Sharon Clarke, Susan Hempfield, Darrell McCaskill, Samara Melich, Mike Erickson, Mark Hussey, Joy K. Mecabe, Thomas Manderville, Dale Mack, Melissa Harrielson, Carla Willis, Pedro Rivera, Charity Beasley, Katie Garlinghouse, Ricardo Lee, Eliu Muniz, Brenda Gregory, Susan Carver, Jerold White, Sandra Osbourne, Ronald Murdock, Mike Vincent, Christine Narkiewicz, Arthur Rubart.

Also added was Carolyne “Kari” Roderick who submitted 1,106.5 hours of work for a 15 day period as per her testimony at the hearing!!

She claimed in her report that from July 16, 2008 through July 31, 2008 she worked 1,106.50 hours. There’s only 360 hours in that time period. Yes, a definite revision is needed and perhaps an indictment for perjury, lying while under oath.

Thanks to the ever-so-insightful Cheney Mason, the finder of this huge discrepancy, OCSO was caught red handed with this blatant fraudulent attempt to garner money from an acquitted defendant.
This also raises doubt as to all reported expenses for which I’m sure Judge Perry took into consideration therefore requesting a more detailed expense reports from all OCSO employees previously mentioned.

Judge Perry denied request by the Office of the State Attorney for special costs incurred for the purpose of prosecuting on Counts 1 through 3, for which Casey Anthony was acquitted. However Casey Anthony does have to pay $50.00 for the costs of prosecution for the misdemeanor convictions, Count 4 through 7, just as Cheney Mason argued in the September 2nd hearing.

As of today, Judge Perry ordered Anthony to pay $97,676.98.
She will reimburse:

• Florida Department of Law Enforcement: $61,505.12
• Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation: $10,283.90
• Orange County Sheriff’s Office: $25,837.96
• State Attorney’s Office: $50

However Judge Perry said in his order he may require Anthony to pay back additional costs to OCSO. As mentioned earlier several members of the Sheriff’s Office inadequately broke down their expenses but Judge Perry, being the fairer judge as I originally thought is giving them till Monday, September 19th to get their numbers in order. Hopefully with America watching, they’ll double check their adding machines and abacuses and come to a reasonable amount.

Judge Perry’s Order



It’s official. The opinionates have reached a verdict. According to Judge Stan Strickland, Nancy Grace and the majority of the general public, it’s been decided.  The 12 seated jurors of the Casey Anthony trial are Guilty of reaching a false verdict after only 2 days of deliberation. Some claim that the jurors were more interested in having a fun filled 4th of July holiday than deliberating the droves of circumstantial evidence and junk science. Some go as far as to say that the jurors were paid by the wealthy defense lawyer Jose Baez and his high powered defense team which Casey Anthony luckily found written on the wall of the Orange County jailhouse.

So Sayeth the shepherd, So Sayeth the Flock

Apparently, the American judicial system which is said to be the best the world, has taken 180 degree turn in the opinion of the popular realm because shockingly the Casey Anthony verdict was not the slam dunk as most expected. On July 5th, she was found not guilty of First Degree murder, Manslaughter and Felony Child Abuse. However, she was found guilty of 4 counts of Lying to LE.

Yesterday, Chief Judge Perry the Chief of his Circuit Court and the Chair of the Florida Innocence Commission, a group designed to look at the causes of wrongful convictions and design reforms for preventing wrongful convictions in the future is back on the proverbial hot seat.

Friday’s Hearing

Judge Belvin Perry held a hearing yesterday to determine how much money Casey Anthony may have to pay back for costs in the investigation of her daughter’s disappearance.

Prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick called several witnesses to testify about the hours detectives worked and other investigative costs.

Prosecutors in the hearing on Friday said that they have all the right to demand the money back from Anthony because she was convicted for lying to detectives in the disappearance of her daughter in 2008.

However Defense attorney, Cheney Mason, accused the State Attorney’s Office of trying to punish Anthony by ordering her to pay the full cost of the murder investigation and prosecution – even though she was acquitted in July.
Mason argued, “I think it is time [prosecutors] accept the fact that they lost this case,”
He added that the reimbursement request had “nothing to do with justice.”

Judge Belvin Perry said he expected to rule by Sept. 22.

Judge Perry has made several decisions in regards to Casey Anthony. During her trial he allowed wishy-washy chloroform evidence, the invisible heart sticker, police K-9s, the lone hair with possible death band and the illusory trunk stain.

However on February 10, 2011 Judge Perry did rule favorably for the Defense on a few key motions.

 Motions Ruled February 10th

02/10/2011 Order Granting
Motion in Limine to Preclude the Use, in Any Fashion Whatsoever, of a Certain “Jib Jab” Cartoon

02/10/2011 Order Granting

02/10/2011 Order Granting
in Part and Denying in Part Motion in Limine to Preclude Testimony or Alleged Statements of Witness Anthony Lazaro Connected to Inquiries, Conversations, or Interrogations by Corporal William Edwards Related to Sexual Relations with Defendant

Of course, one of the of motions JibJab cartoon was an easy denial but interestingly he denied motions allowing testimony of Casey’s history of lying, reference to Casey borrowing a shovel from her neighbor, reference to a poem written on Myspace “Diary of Days”, her past sexual relationships and the “Bella Vita” tattoo she had done during the mysterious 31 days prior to reporting her daughter Caylee missing. Is it possible this evidence would have changed the verdict?

What Will Judge Perry Do?

Almost 2 months after the acquittal, Judge Belvin Perry will have to decide if Casey Marie Anthony IS responsible for all costs of investigation and WILL she be ordered to reimburse $517,000 to Orange County Florida.  That is the question.

Incidentally, A hearing is also slated for Sept. 28 on whether to release a sealed jail video taken on the day Caylee Anthony’s remains were found.
Officials said the video showed Casey Anthony doubled over while watching news reports of the discovery.
The video was sealed two years ago by Judge Stan Strickland. Strickland said the video was too inflammatory and could affect Anthony’s right to a fair trial.
Hmm…probably not..

As Casey Anthony is preparing for the much awaited return to Orange Co, FL in order to complete her sentence for check fraud handed down by Judge Stan Strickland, much ado has been brought to the surface by the Orange County Courthouse stemming from an elaborate hearing held in Judge Strickland’s courtroom which has prompted this question,

“Did Casey Anthony serve probation in jail as proven by documents from the DOC?”
Orange County says NO.

Judges Stan Strickland and Belvin Perry Jr. insist that 412 days of jail time and one year supervised probation is a reasonable sentence for any first-time offender convicted of writing fraudulent checks totaling less than $700 including victim compensation.
After a 6-week laconic courtroom battle with Orange County Courts, Casey Anthony’s defense team failed to become the victor as I expected.
Orange County and the state of Florida alike apparently are suffering withdrawal pangs from their addiction to the limelight that their favorite “most hated woman” brings to their little town of Orlando.
It didn’t take long for Orange County to realize that without Casey Anthony, there is no diversion from Orlando, Florida’s inability to convict her of 1st Deg Murder. Everyday that passed without Casey Anthony in jail, the local media and national news pundits focused heavily on what went wrong and why did the state of Florida fail to garner the guilty verdict so many thought was cut, dried and literally in the bag.

Whether it was promised or not, surprisingly seldom, if at all, did any pundit dare to speculate with words such as “there really isn’t any solid evidence”.
And so the hatred of Casey Anthony began. The lynch mob who chanted “bullshit” outside of the courthouse July 5th after the verdict was read and are now chanting “Yessss” because of yesterday’s decision. Regardless as to how mundane the probation issue really is, to the lynch mob, this means there’s a good chance that one of the renegade members can achieve what 12 jurors could not; a death sentence.


Meet Jessica Beagley

Part I

Jessica Beagley, a 36-year-old mother of six who punished her 7-year old adopted son by pouring hot sauce down his throat while warning him not to swallow or spit it out. While an older sibling followed orders to video tape the ordeal, Mrs Beagley instructedthe child to strip down naked and forced him into the bathtub for the dreaded cold shower.

 He’s being punished for getting “three cards pulled,” three infractions at school.
The boy can be heard screaming when Beagley forces him to take a cold shower.

 On video she’s heard saying, “When [he] gets a cold shower, I am at the end of my rope,” “Nothing’s gotten the results that I want.”

As a guest on a Dr Phil Show titled “Mommy Confessions”, Mrs Beagley, wife of a patrol officer, also admitted to spanking the boy and forcing him to do jumping jacks until he’s exhausted.

Jessica Beagley

She says she stopped using hot sauce & cold showers

I’m not a person who has hates easily but if I have a choice of hating someone for something that can not be proven as opposed to hating someone who video taped her own abusive punishments on a 7yo child for an entertainment show, I’ll chose what can be proven by video and admission each and every time.
In my opinion, Ms Beagley’s actions towards this child are demoralizing!! No only to him but his twin brother who has knowledge and possibly witnessed this abuse towards his twin brother. These two little boys spent 5 years in a Russian orphanage before being adopted by the Beagleys.
I have no way of knowing for a fact what the boys endured in the Russian orphanage but from what I’ve read, they were more than likely mistreated. I can only imagine how joyfully excited they were when they learned they were being adopted by an American family. It must have been a major disappointment when they were faced with such a military style environment and such an unloving mother.
This child Kristoff is now emotionally scarred for life and for that I HATE Jessica Beagley. I’m appalled and ashamed as an American that people like this are allowed to adopt children.

Snipped from an article released today August 24, 2011 | 11:03am

A jury in Anchorage convicted Jessica Beagley, 36, on a misdemeanor child abuse charge after viewing a videotape that Beagley had made. In the video, the boy — one of two 5-year-old twins she and her husband adopted from Russia in 2008 — is seen first being force-fed hot sauce and then crying loudly in a cold shower…

Sentencing is set for Monday. Beagley could face up to a year in prison and a $10,000 fine. Authorities have not said whether the boy, one of six children, will be removed from the home.

Needless to say I hate Jessica Beagley

Another Mother I Hate
Story: Mom Forces 12yo son to kill pet hamster for bad grades

Lisabeth Fryer, defense attorney and associate of Cheney Mason has signed an emergency motion that could stop Casey Anthony’s questionable probation. Casey Anthony is the mother acquitted of murdering her 2 1/2 year old daughter Caylee Anthony on July 5, 2011. The document was filed Wednesday, August 17, 2011 with the 5th District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach.

The emergency motion is to quash, vacate and set aside the recent Court’s Order to have Casey Anthony return to Orlando on August 26th to begin probation.
Lisabeth Fryer listed in part of the motion Basis For Invoking Jurisdiction based on lack of jurisdiction and in violation of double jeopardy.

Under Part II, Statement Of The Facts,
Ms. Fryer reminds the 5th District Court of Appeal that The Honorable Stan Strickland was the original judge presiding over two cases involving the Defendant
On page 7 of 18 the motion points out Judge Strickland’s unusual and in my opinion inappropriate behavior regarding Casey Anthony. She states..

In the intervening time period between the between the filing of the Motion to Disqualify (App. A) on April 18, 2010 and the present the Judge’s subsequent public behavior has only stood to verify and reaffirm the fears of the Defendant as
to the Judge’s bias and prejudice. In particular, The Honorable Stan Strickland has
engaged in televised interviews with tabloid entertainment programs, such as “The
Nancy Grace Show,” in which he stated on national television that that he was
“shocked at the result” of the trial in which the defendant was acquitted of First
Degree Murder, Aggravated Child Abuse, and Aggravated Manslaughter of a
Child. App. D. This interview occurred after the verdict, but before sentencing.

Lisabeth Fryer listed a couple of other televised interviews Judge Strickland engaged in including an interview to discuss the Defendant’s trial, the jury, and resulting verdict with local NBC affiliate WESH.
“Full Interview: Former Casey Judge Talks Verdict, Jury” available at

“The Other Judge: Stan Strickland Shocked at Casey Anthony’s Acquittal” available at
Reporter Jacqueline Fell sits down with Stan Strickland, the original judge in the Casey Anthony case, to talk about the trial and his recusal in 2010.

Ms. Fryer adds on page 8 of 18

After the Defendant was released from her sentence on four misdemeanor charges imposed by the Honorable Belvin Perry, Judge Strickland, sua sponte, amended his original order to reflect that the Defendant serve her probation on her release in the present case. However, this action was taken 562 days after the Defendant’s probation began and without request from the State of Florida, with no notice to the Defendant or her counsel, and without regard for the fact that the Defendant had successfully completed the
terms of her probation. (App. A). Further, this action was taken after the
previously disqualified judge participated in multiple media interviews in which demonstrating unquestionable bias against the Defendant. Judge Strickland made statements related to his actions to the press then was unavailable for immediate legal issues on this matter, as he went on vacation. The Defendant was given 72 hours to report to supervised probation in Orange County. On August 2, 2011, Judge Strickland recused himself before the Defendant had an opportunity to file her Motion to Disqualify Previously Disqualified Judge. The same day, Defendant
filed a Motion for an Emergency Hearing to Quash, Vacate, and Set Aside the Order. (App. E).

Ms. Fryer addresses “Double Jeopardy”

“Three basic protections emanate from the Double Jeopardy Clauses of the
Federal and the Florida Constitutions:
1) protection against a subsequent
prosecution for the same offense;
2) protection against a subsequent prosecution
for the same offense after conviction; and
3) protection against multiple
punishments for the same offense.”

She cites several cases. One I like in particular is Hunsicker v. State, 881 So. 2d 1166 (Fla. 5th DCA 2004).
In the present case, Ms. Anthony has formally served her probationary period. A second period of probation would violate her protections against multiple punishments for the same offense. U.S. Const., amends. V & XIV; Fla. Const., art. I, § 9.

“Formally” is the operative word which in my opinion is hard to argue considering Anthony does have documentation signed and stamped by the Orange County Dept of Corrections.


In other news, George and Cindy Anthony will be guests on the Dr Phil Show airing on September 12th.

cfnews13 reported that the show is not compensating the Anthonys for the interview, according to the release, and is only being asked to donate to a charity organization that has been set up to advocate for the rights of grandparents of missing children.

Cindy & George Anthony to Appear on Dr Phil September 12th

ZubenElSchemali submitted on 2011/08/12 at 6:47 pm https://thejbmission.wordpress.com/2011/08/08/a-gentle-reminder/#comment-38866

This order has one huge flaw that jumped out at me. First he says that probation is not a punishment, but a rehabilitation. Then on page 9 he says, to not allow the judge to correct this clerical error

“…would clearly thwart society’s interest in extracting a full, fair and just punishment for a crime”.

Perry seems a little confused or perhaps is talking out both sides of his mouth. Then this…

…This court is very mindful that it is a high probability that there are many that would like to see physical harm visited upon the defendant.

THEREFORE IT IS ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Emergency Motion to Quash, Vacate and Set Aside the Court’s order is DENIED.

Sounds like a Freudian slip on Perry’s part, Zuben.

After reading a slew of awesome insightful intelligent comments from the previous article which I totally agree with everyone’s viewpoint, I don’t have much to add but one thing that came to mind which is similar to the Salem Witch Trial analogy as it applied to the Casey Anthony saga, here’s another analogy to ponder. . Has anyone read the book
“The Scarlet Letter”?
It’s about a woman falsely accused of adultery in the 1700’s during the Puritanical era. She was forced to wear the letter “A” everyday in public so to be ridiculed by society. It was later found that she was not an adulterer. Is this Judge Perry’s intention?

Last Wednesday when we all gathered around the television while eagerly awaiting “oh how, oh how will Judge Perry rule?” subconsciously I knew he would deny Casey’s motion. It was obvious to me that he knew damn well what he would rule but was too embarrassed to announce it while America watched.

I’m disappointed but not shocked by Judge Belvin Perry’s decision to agree with Judge Strickland’s ridiculous complaint claiming Casey Anthony didn’t serve her probation for check fraud charges while in jail. I KNOW she did. The Florida Dept of Corrections knows she did. There are papers to prove it yet documentation hasn’t meant much to these two judges who swore to uphold the American Constitution.

After following this case for the last 3 years, it was laughable to think that Casey Anthony would prevail. There’s no way in hell that she could possibly be given a fair and positive ruling when going up against these two men, Belvin Perry Jr and his sidekick
Stan Strickland.

Unlike the jurors, their agenda is not to weigh evidence and come to a judicially fair conclusion. These elected officials have popular opinion to attend to. Popular opinion screams for revenge therefore they will get it regardless of what the Constitution dictates.
Unlike the jurors who have no political agenda to tend, they’re free to impose whatever suits their fancy and in this case it’s a bitter vendetta.

No matter how hard I tried, I could not imagine any other ruling when it comes to Casey Anthony. This is the SAME judge who allowed junk science, incorrect computer forensics, an odd shaped stain in the trunk which had absolutely no forensic value and my all-time favorite, the “amazing invisible heart sticker” evidence into a court of Law, in a capital murder case.

I wouldn’t express my views so strongly, if it was “just us” a few rogue believers in truth and justice but it’s not! There are a slew of lawyers and judges who agree that Casey did indeed serve out her probation while in jail.

Having said that with all conviction, I hope in two weeks when she arrives back in Orlando, FL that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Dept of Corrections are readily prepared to protect her but honestly, I don’t have much faith in that so I suppose we can just sit back and watch this travesty play out and hope that someone doesn’t die in the process.

Will Casey Anthony survive her 2nd probation obligation to Orange County, Florida without harm to her or those around her? From the aura of my crystal ball, the vibes tell me that the OCSO or some fanatical individual so-called “justice seeker” will make sure that Casey somehow violates probation just to see her return to jail. From there, she’ll be right smack in the middle of The System where they can control her fate. Perhaps even implicate her in another murder case just for laughs. We are now well aware of what they are capable of. THEY have no shame when it comes to abusing the power they hold because they are The Law.

I had hoped on July 5, 2011 that after the acquittal that perhaps this case would slowly find its way into the history books but now it seems the Mission will carry on for at least another year therefore I’ll continue to cover each and every injustice Casey Anthony will face. Someone here @ theJBMission said,

“Injustice for Casey Anthony is injustice for All”
I concur!

Judge Perry Rules on Casey’s Probation

What ARE my intentions?? hmm..

Today Monday, August 01, 2011, WESH.com reports:


After Anthony’s acquittal on murder and manslaughter charges, the conditions of her probation were apparently misinterpreted by the Department of Corrections, paving the way for Anthony’s release.
Since she was released from jail, her whereabouts have been unknown.
The state attorney’s office spokesman said the Department of Corrections policy allows defendants to serve probation while still in jail and not under sentence.

“I read the order,” said state attorney’s spokesman Randy Means. “The order said she was supposed to begin when she was released from her sentence.”

Strickland’s office told WESH 2 News on Friday afternoon that it was his intent that Anthony serve a year of probation after her release from jail.

January 25, 2010

Forgery of checks: Counts 3, 6, 9, 12, adjudication of guilt, sentenced 412 Days, Time Served

Count 2, ID fraud (fraudulent use of personal indentification) adjudication of guilt, 412 Days, Time Served

Count 1, Grand theft (total of all, over $300), adjudication of guilt, 412 Days, Time Served

“And That Will Be It!”

Really? What was Judge Strickland’s intent? No one seems to know. Dept of Corrections didn’t know and more importantly neither did Hon. Judge Belvin Perry Jr.

Judge Perry initially set Casey Anthony’s day of release to July 13th but went back and reevaluated and changed the date to July 17th which tells me everyone was looking really hard to find a way to keep Casey Anthony in jail.

Judge Perry, his staff and the Dept of Corrections worked diligently in the 12 days post Casey Anthony’s acquittal to add, subtract, multiply and divide each and everyday Casey Anthony spent in the Orange County Jail.

Without a doubt, there was NO RUSH to release Casey Anthony, the most hated woman in Florida, yet not one person could understand Judge Strickland’s check fraud sentence until a week ago.

The Chicago Tribune says:

“”The Orange County Clerk of Courts office confirmed Friday that it was working to amend the wording in one of Anthony’s sentencing documents to more accurately reflect Strickland’s intentions.””

The Orange County Clerk of Courts is working to “AMEND”the wording
in one of Anthony’s sentencing documents!!

Ironically Judge Stan Strickland,

 the Embarrassment is Richer!




Chicago Tribune

Jose Baez

Casey Anthony was sentenced Thursday to four years in jail, two days after a jury in Florida found her not guilty of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.   As Mr. Baez said in the first press conference, its a somber moment.  Subsequently, Casey will be released from jail as a free citizen on July 17, 2011.

Judge Seidlin who has no reason to be subtle boldly spoke his mind today on HLN.  He blames the over zealous prosecutors Jeff Ashton and Linda Drane Burdick for losing this case.  Had they not gotten caught up in the media hype perhaps they would not have over over charged Casey Anthony.  He went on to say if they’d indicted Anthony with manslaughter instead of first degree murder, the prosecution would need 6 jurors instead of 12 for a guilty verdict.

Quote Alan Dershowitz: Article titled “The System Worked”

“This case [is] about seeking justice for Caylee . . .” So argued the
prosecutor in the Casey Anthony murder case. He was wrong, and the jury
understood that.

A criminal trial is never about seeking justice for the victim. If it were,
there could be only one verdict: guilty. That’s because only one person is on
trial in a criminal case, and if that one person is acquitted, then by
definition there can be no justice for the victim in that trial.”

FYI: Judge Eaton answered when asked, “what was the reason for the media frenzy?”  Judge Eaton said it was when Casey Anthony story became a death penalty case.


The JB Mission Unleashed!!

 From the day I began blogging about the heart wrenching case of the disappearance and subsequent death of Caylee Marie Anthony, I gave it my best effort to keep my blog respectable knowing that I would be despised for speaking out my personal viewpoint.  I did NOT think Casey purposely harmed her daughter.  Like the jurors, I wanted to believe it but the evidence was not there.

But the day has come for me to speak my mind no matter what anyone thinks of me.

In my opinion, Casey Anthony doesn’t owe ANYONE a damn thing!  She paid her debt to society for lying.  Perhaps it’s she who should sue?  Sue the pants off of the over zealous prosecutors who over charged her and the media who vilified her.

I commend Judge Perry for doing his best to accommodate the angry lynch mob after the acquittal of murder by sentencing her with 1 year for each count to run consecutively NOT concurrently which isn’t the normal.

I commend Judge Perry for not granting Casey Anthony a true change of venue.  He picked a Pinellas county. A county said to have 97% of their population who thought Casey was guilty before the trial began.  The Voir Dire of this trial went through over 200 potential jurors in order to find the 12 selfless citizens willing to be sequestered in a hotel room for a month or more.  What more does the public want?

From Judge Belvin Perry actions, obviously he knew his star prosecutor Jeff Ashton had over indicted Anthony with first degree murder.  He knew the difficulty it would be to find a death penalty qualified jury.  He did his best to compensate for the prosecutors failures by granting as many motions as he could filed by the State of Florida and in turn he cordially helped the prosecution by denying the majority, if not all of the motions filed by the Defense.

What more does the public want?  Without a doubt, we all want Justice for Caylee but “justice delayed is not denied!”  Had Yuri Melich and team readjusted to Casey lying at Universal Studios, stepped back and reassess the reason for such obvious lying they may have gotten closer to the truth.  Befriending George Anthony was not a good idea.  An astute investigator would have looked at the entire family because no one who says he went back to work after smelling what he thought was death coming from his daughter’s abandoned car.  Most people would have called authorities immediately.

The investigation should have continued leaving no stone unturned before arresting Casey Anthony on first degree murder charges.  Before indicting her the State of Florida should have demanded viable evidence from Orange County Sheriff’s Office and not depended on popular opinion to convict Casey.

This is just part of my rant. There’s much more.  Stay tuned.






There are several comments in this time frame posted on:





Independence Day!

Independence Day by
Martina McBride


Well she seemed all right by dawn’s early light though she looked a little
Worried and weak she tried to pretend he wasn’t drinkin’ aagain but daddy left
The proof on her cheek and I was only eight years old that summer and I always
Seemed to be in the way so I took myself down to the fair in town on
Independence day

Well word gets a round in a small, small town they said he was a dangerous man
But mama was proud and she stood her ground she knew she was on the losin’ end
Some folks whispered some folks talked but everybody looked the other way and
When time ran out there was no one about on indpendence day

Chorus: let freedom ring, let the white dove sing let the whole world know that

Today is a day of reckoning let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong roll
The stone away, let the guilty pay, it’s independence day
Well she lit up the sky that fourth of july by the time the firemen come they
Just put out the flames and took down some names and send me to the county home
Now I ain’t sayin’ it’s right or it’s wrong but maybe it’s the only way talk
About your revolution it’s indepenednce day

Repeat chorous

Roll the stone away it’s independence day!


Interesting lyrics, ironically the jurors could very well be sitting in their motel rooms tonight pondering the deliberation and subsequent fate of a young mother Casey Marie Anthony, the accused killer of her beautiful daughter Caylee Marie.

Independence Day, celebrated on the 4th of July representing America’s freedom and signifying liberty and justice for ALL.  All, does that include Casey Anthony?  I wonder.

How profound!  Was this all meant
to be?

Judge Belvin Perry Jr, an interesting man. A man who comes from a family of boys with a tough street cop, Belvin Sr as his father.  His eye accidentally poked out by a butcher knife from a duel with a cousin using a butcher knife for a sword.  I wonder where Belvin Jr’s father was when this occurred.  Was his father not supervising his children closely enough? Could this be considered as negligence of a parent in July of 2011?

As hard as it is for me to mention Judge Perry’s accident, I find it ironic.

I’m sure his father was a good man, a hard worker and I know boys will be boys but in 2011, the laws changed, a child’s eye is gone forever, I think a nasty prosecutor with an axe to grind and a need to win a case could have built a case against the parent or adult who was left in charge of Belvin Jr. if this happened in 2011.

I would hate to see that happen to a good family and I’m sure the Perry’s were highly respected in their community.  From the outcome of Judge Perry Jr. and his brothers, all being college graduates, all having important respected careers, that his upbringing and parental guidance was excellent.  I’m sure Mr. and Mrs. Belvin Perry Sr. are extremely proud of their children but had this happened today, there could have been a full blown investigation and a spiteful, mean prosecutor could have built a case in a New York second.  It’s frightening!

I assume he’s above average intelligent, he seems thorough, meticulous in his rulings but not observant enough to know what goes on in his courtroom.  While I was captivated to my chair today as I watched defense attorney Jose Baez’s tell the story from the opposing side of Main Street, the camera in the courtroom would occasionally pan out to the gallery and then zoom onto the face of Jeff Ashton who was often smirking or outright laughing at Mr. Baez as he was fighting for the life of his client.  That is no laughing matter.  Finally with the strength and anger of a bull, Jose Baez called him out. He called him “the Laughing Man.”


“The Laughing Man”

I sit here and ask myself, “Who is this Laughing Man?” So what, he’s won a few cases, I know he’s cheated on at least one.  Instead of being respectful to his fellow Officer of the Court Jose Baez, he laughs in his face during the most crucial part of any murder trial, the closing argument.

And the Judge, Belvin Perry Jr., instead of asking questions and admonishing the one person who disobeyed his rules, Jeff Ashton, he publicly admonishes BOTH attorneys when it was Jeff Ashton who caused the disruption, not Jose Baez.  All he did was point Ashton’s idiotic antics to the presiding Judge, the filled courtroom and the national media covering the most sensational trial of the century.  Kudos to Mr. Baez!

Judge Perry, whom I expected so much more and have held my nose as I watched him play favorites from the first day he came onto this case. I was shocked to see such blatant biasness towards Mr. Ashton and his constant public humiliation of Mr. Baez.

Casey Anthony may be executed or gone and forgotten in 5 or 10 years.  Judge Perry and Jeff Ashton may have won their BIG CASE along with the support of 90% of Orlando, Florida but was it worth it?  Was the good reputation of Hon. Judge Belvin Perry Jr worth ruining for a lowly prosecutor named Jeff Ashton?  I hope Judge Perry sees the light and comes to his senses. This was never a first degree murder case.  It was a mistake which is not too late to rectify.

I have decided after watching this debauchery to never visit the state of Florida.  I will warn all of my friends and people I know in the travel industry that this State does not uphold the laws of our country and does not support our 6th Amendment right to a fair trial.

Traveler beware!

It matters not to me anymore if Casey Anthony is convicted of murdering her precious daughter Caylee Marie Anthony.  That is an automatic appeal and she’ll be out of this mess in a few years, no doubt in my mind.  I’m much more concerned with the makings and actions of Orange County Florida’s judicial system. A county that would think nothing about what happens in their courts or the fact that they’d use a National holiday as if it were any day of the week to hold trial simply out of convenience for a few jurors.

Will Judge Perry’s love affair with the jurors pay off?

Remember him, Juror #2

Juror 2 — The IT Worker: Black male, mid-thirties, married, two children: a daughter, 4 and son, 9. Like defendant, Casey Anthony, juror’s mother was a single mom. “My impression was that, ‘yes, I thought she did it.’ … If I had to return a verdict, I would say ‘not guilty’ right now.” Death penalty stance: Does not believe in the death penalty. “God is the one that makes the final judgment.”

He’s been said via Tweets to be diligently taking notes which is always a good sign when a juror is paying attention and taking notes. I’m betting steaks and seafood that Juror 2 was intently listening to Jose Baez pouring out his heart as he passionately defended his client Casey Anthony.

Will Juror 2 be the One?  That’s all it takes…


Happy 4th of July Everyone!


May Justice Prevail



Don’t forget to light a candle for justice if it’s your belief!  (optional of course)




Cheney Mason request for a judgment of acquittal

If Judge Perry’s ruling was good for you, well I must have higher standards.

The fact that Judge Perry denied it means nothing to me because he’s proven time and again that his interest is to get a conviction no matter what as indicated when he denied Casey Anthony a “genuine change of venue.”  That is apparent.

I found the trial in totality a travesty of justice and mockery of the American judicial system as we first witnessed when Casey Anthony was denied her 6th Amendment right to a fair trial.  The violation above is apparent.

Whether Judge Perry denied the four motions for mistrial or not means NOTHING to me because I already know where Judge Perry’s head is at; squarely implanted in the anus of Jeffrey Ashton.  That is apparent.

George Anthony, the Accuser who testified to the Grand Jury to have his daughter Casey Anthony indicted was proven beyond a reasonable doubt X2, to be liar, a bum and an adulterer which makes any and all testimony coming from him null and void.

George Anthony’s lame attempt at suicide is a direct indication of guilt as compared to that of Casey Anthony.  There were no suicide attempts for Casey. In fact her behavior was the exact opposite almost as if she knew her days were numbered taking into consideration her tattoo “Bella Vita”.  Why is it that an immature 22yo is able to accept her punishment?  It’s because her crime was not murder as her father wanted her to believe.  Maybe negligence but maybe not, if both George and Casey were the only two adults who were home when Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool.

I laugh in the face of the State Attorneys Jeff Ashton and Linda Drane Burdick with both middle fingers waving in the air as I hear their rebuttal witness Dr Michael Warren admit he did not read Dr Garavaglia’s 23 page report nor Dr Goldberg’s.  Here’s a State rebuttal witness who was suppose to disprove Dr Spitz’s strong assertion “the autopsy was shoddy!” yet Dr Warren didn’t even read the autopsy report.

Without George Anthony’s testimony to the Grand Jury, Judge Belvin Perry presiding, Casey Anthony may not have been indicted.

Without Roy Kronk’s tampering with the body there may have been more forensic findings as to who put Caylee’s body on Suburban Drive.

Both of these witnesses were thoroughly impeached by the defense.

I trust defense attorney Cheney Mason’s knowledge of the law explicitly!  I do NOT trust Judge Perry or Jeff Ashton!  Judge Perry has proven to me that he’d do anything in his power to help the State prove their desperate case by allowing invisible heart sticker evidence into trial which defense attorney Jose Baez fought so vehemently to disallow.

Defense attorney Jose Baez, the Tiger, the tenacious Pit Bull who stood alone at the onset of this case did a remarkable job against not 3 but 5 adversaries, one of which was the presiding judge himself and the other was the media.

I laugh out loud with both middle fingers waving as I heard Judge Perry use the term imagined or unimagined as for the extra time Jose Baez needed to gather information to defend his client Casey Anthony from a possible death sentence.  It must have been a Freudian slip because the only thing imaginary is Judge Perry’s imaginary deadline he artfully set as a date for the end of trial which audaciously happens to be the 4th of July, again making a mockery of Casey Anthony’s Constitutional 6th Amendment right to a fair trial.


Carpe Diem and God Doesn’t Sleep!


What does Judge Perry Have to Do?
After 37 minutes into Day 28, Judge Perry begrudgingly announced “court will be in recess until Monday 8:30 AM”, leaving myself and the Talking Heads in a state of confusion.
Why would Judge Perry cancel a valuable day of trial at this juncture? You be the judge.

Part I



Part II

Note in Part II, after Judge Perry gets both sides to agree that there’s a legal matter unrelated to Dr. Furton he says “Madam court reporter, there’s something we gotta do”

Incidentally I observed as the camera pans the courtroom, the guy with the blue open collar shirt, jacket and ID hanging around his neck standing behind Ashton. Notice the guard approach him very briefly and looks like he’s reaching behind his back? Did the guard put something into his hand?   Just an incidental observation…

Enjoy your day!
