On this Day in 2011: Casey Anthony – Not Guilty & Acquitted

.
Today marks the 1st Anniversary of a truly monumental day – that being Casey’s Not Guilty verdict and acquittal. How time flies.

Here are my comments and the 3 videos I posted 12 months ago. The same comments still apply.

………………………………..

The Verdict:

Shame on every single one of you still holding on to the myth that Casey is guilty – when the truth is out there for all to see. Shame on you. No way she killed her child! The whole image the media created was a lie that YOU fell for. Respect the verdict and get over it.

The Verdict in the Casey Anthony Trial – Not Guilty… GO CASEY! –  July 5th 2011:

Jose Baez after the verdict

………………………………..

Here’s what Jose Baez stated after the trial (in the above video):

“Casey did not murder Caylee. It’s that simple. And today, our system of justice has not dishonored her memory by a false conviction.”

As far as historic moments in TV history go, this one is right up there. If you remember what you were doing before, during and after the verdict – post your comments below.

Congrats once again to Team Casey.

Celebrate the day!

Keep the faith,

Jose Baez - Presumed Guilty - Casey Anthony - The Inside Story

Jose Baez to publish Casey Anthony book – “Presumed Guilty”

From WESH.com:

Jose Baez announced details of a book he plans to release this summer. He promises the book will give an inside look into the Casey Anthony murder trial.

The book, titled “Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story.” will hit store shelves in July — one year after Anthony’s acquittal.

 

Jose Baez Pens Book About Casey Case

“On July 17th 2008, my life changed forever. I think the time has come for the whole story to be told,” Baez said in a statement.

The publisher, BenBella Books, said the book will expose shocking information about Baez’s first meeting with Anthony, her parents’ behavior and the trial itself.

Baez was Anthony’s attorney for more than three years. The publisher promises the book will reveal the real Anthony, from the person who got to know her best.

The publisher also said the book’s aim is not to convince readers of Anthony’s innocence.

“There are so many behind-the-scenes facts and stories that have never been made public. I look forward to sharing my story,” Baez said in the statement.

More news as soon as we have it.

GO JOSE! :mrgreen:

Casey’s psychological evaluations unsealed by JP

Unsealed Reports from Jeffery A. Danziger & William A. Weitz:

Note: While there are too many specific events & pages to reference – in the 1st document – Casey’s abuse at the hands of GA is covered starting @ page 71, and Casey’s recollections of the day Caylee died (and the lead-up to the events of that day) start @ page 100.

From: Orlando Sentinel – 1-11-2012 :::

“Chief Judge Belvin Perry has unsealed two never-before-seen depositions from doctors who conducted psychological evaluations on Casey Anthony before her murder trial last spring.

The documents are significant because they represent the most recent version of Casey Anthony’s story about what happened to her daughter.

The depositions are from Dr. Jeffrey Danziger and Dr. William Weitz. The Orlando Sentinel is reviewing the documents now and will regularly update this story.

Both Danziger and Weitz were originally listed as defense witnesses before Casey Anthony’s trial started last May. But the defense later withdrew the mental health experts as witnesses, and neither doctor ended up testifying during the trial.

However, portions of the story they said Casey Anthony told them ended up being a part of defense attorney Jose Baez’s shocking opening statement to jurors.

In his bombshell opening, Baez told the jury that Caylee Marie drowned in the family pool in mid-June 2008. He also said that George Anthony knew of the drowning and blamed his daughter for the child’s death. Finally, Baez also claimed that Casey Anthony had been sexually abused by her father.

Those claims made in the infamous Baez opening were never substantiated at trial.

However, the substance of the Baez opening matched — to some extent — the accounts relayed during the Weitz and Danziger depositions.

Retired Anthony prosecutor Jeff Ashton relayed some of what Weitz and Danziger talked about in his book about the case, “Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.”

Ashton said he based his writings on his recollection and his notes, not the sealed depositions themselves.

According to the book:

Danziger said that Anthony told him she “believed that her father drowned Caylee deliberately or drowned her while he was molesting her, even though she had no evidence that George [Anthony] had ever molested Caylee in the past.”

Weitz, referring to the account Casey Anthony gave him, gave a similar version of events. He indicated Casey Anthony asserted “that Caylee could not have died by accident and that George had murdered her,” according to the book.

Casey Anthony said her father yelled at her, “It’s your fault. It’s your fault. You’re a bad mother,” according to the Weitz version.

Although the jury never heard these accounts, Casey Anthony, 25, was acquitted of the most serious charges against her, including first-degree murder, in the 2008 death of her daughter.”

JP: No decision on Casey Anthony’s “Jail Video” unsealing

*** 9/30 UPDATE: JP HAS NOW DECIDED TO RELEASE THE VIDEO ***

In yesterday’s hearing, Judge Belvin Perry withheld ruling on whether he’ll release Casey’s “Jail Video”. When it comes to making decisions, this guy is about as useful as a politician in a crisis.

Here’s the latest from WESH.com:

No Decision Made On Casey Jail Reaction Tape

JP to decide on Casey Anthony “Jail Video” unsealing today

In today’s scheduled circus event, Judge Belivin Perry may decide whether or not a sealed Casey Anthony “jail video” should be released. You would think he’d had enough of all this BS by now, but apparently not.

Anyway …this soundless video – according to the “Officials” that staged the event inside OC Jail 2008 – shows Casey “doubling over and beginning to hyperventilate” while watching TV news reports relating to the discovery of Caylee’s remains.

This same video was sealed two years ago by Stan Strickland, who said at the time it was “too inflammatory” and could affect Casey’s right to a fair trial. A bit like all the TV interviews Stirckland did prior to getting himself kicked off the trial.

I mean – after the hideous fake animated movie that the cess pool prosecution produced and presented (showing a picture of Caylee’s face slowly morphing into a picture of her actual skull, with duct tape conveniently superimposed) – PLUS the pictures recently posted on a supposed “Justice For Caylee” website featuring the actual autopsy photographs of Caylee’s skeletal remains — do we really need to see Casey’s “reaction” after she was set-up in front of the TV (by the DOC) so she’d see the breaking news of her daughters remains being found? I think not.

The prosecution – the faux “Caylee” website – and people wanting to see that video are, in my opinion, nothing more than a bunch of sick twisted bastards. Enough is enough FFS! Have some respect for the memory of Caylee Anthony – and her mom.

Casey foots the bill for even more OCSO incompetence

So after a few more shenanigans and an uncharacteristic flurry of activity from OCSO, Judge Perry has now decided to adjust Casey’s bill and take it up to $217k. That’s still way less then half the original amount the Sour Grapes State were shooting for, but in the big scheme of things the actual figure is irrelevant.

The fact is: If OCSO and Law Enforcement  had put the same amount of time & effort into properly investigating this case as they have getting their receipts in order (instead of that cretinous piece of filth Yuri Melich and his cohorts trying to frame Casey from day 1), then things would certainly have been different.

In other news, the latest issue of People magazine features Casey on the cover, together with a story about her life “in hiding”.  They also brought out a $3.99 Casey Anthony-themed book a couple of weeks back called “Outrage: The Casey Anthony Story”. That’s all well & good… but the only real outrage is that George Anthony is still walking around as free as a bird and cashing in left, right & center… even after his serial child abuse & aggravated manslaughter of Caylee Marie Anthony. So like I say, adding $119k to Casey’s bill really is a moot point.

Here’s a recent post from Jaylyn that sums it all up quite nicely:

“I have to say I have always thought that George Anthony has had something to do with what happened to Caylee, however I don’t actually think he murdered her. I believe that that Caylee did in fact drown in the pool, however George Anthony knew that he could never allow Caylee’s body to be autopsied because her little body would most definitely show the signs of his sexual abuse. He knew that his daughter would straight away point the finger at him because he had done the same to her. He knew very well that the best thing would be to make Caylee disappear. By the time her remains were found there was not enough left for them to find any signs of sexual abuse, therefore George could breath again and start to point the finger directly at his daughter.  Every time I have heard George Anthony deny the sexual abuse allegations I have never been able to believe him and I really do think that sexual abuse really lies at the center of the mystery, of what happened to Caylee Anthony.”

Casey Anthony: 418,000 reasons to be cheerful…

Looks like a decision has finally been reached on the trial costs issue – with Judge Perry deciding to reduce the Sour Grapes State’s initial over exaggerated claim by $418,000… and leaving Casey to pay $97,676.98

I think Team Casey should appeal the decision… but failing that, Casey should consider forwarding “the bill” on to George Anthony. He can pay it from the $250k he just got from talking bullshit with Dr Phil for 9 1/2 hours… seeing as Casey was forced into covering for his aggravated manslaughter of Caylee.

418000 reasons to be cheerful

Team Casey submit $200 counter-offer in Trial Cost fiasco

On Monday afternoon, Lisabeth Fryer (representing Team Casey) filed a brief including a $200 counter-offer with regards to the current trial cost fiasco.

The Sour Grapes State Attorney’s office thinks Casey should be liable for $517,000 in respect of their incompetence – while the statutory limit is $50 per conviction.

So… $50 x 4 dubious misdemeanors (currently under appeal) = $200.

Bottom line: Judge Perry would essentially be ignoring the law if he ordered Casey to pay more than $50 per count.

A decision is expected at any time, although Judge Perry has until September 22nd to decide.

If you missed the initial riveting trial cost hearing from September 2nd, Part 11 of 13 is below. It covers a portion of Cheney Mason’s closing arguments, and his specific highlighting of the State’s very long list of inaccuracies & lies in relation to their overly exaggerated BS costs claim.

Casey Anthony – Costs Hearing, September 2nd 2011 – Part 11

Casey Anthony – Trial costs hearing UPDATE

After a delayed 10:45 kick-off,  this morning’s Trial Costs Hearing finally got underway… with LDB & Frank George representing the Sour Grapes State, and Cheney Mason & Lisabeth Fryer once again flying the flag for Team Casey.

The hearing started very interestingly, with the State’s 1st witness, Randy Means (State Attorney’s office) denying all knowledge in relation to the particulars of the 4 counts of “lying to LE”. The other witnesses didn’t perform much better, with their total lack of understanding regarding the equation of hours worked versus costs incurred. The State wheeled out Sgt. John Allen (OC Sheriff’s office) as their last witness.

To all intents and purposes, way too many people at the Attorney’s Office, Orlando PD/MBI, FDLE & OCSO did very little aside run around like headless chickens, then attempt to duly overcharge for it.

In summing up, Cheney Mason stated: “I think it is time that Lawson Lamar’s office ACCEPTS the fact that they LOST this case.” Well said.

He also highlighted the fact that the Sheriff’s Dept. (and Deputy Kane) failed to act properly in not following up on Roy Kronk’s calls in August 2008. Cheney Mason concluded by highlighting the overcharging hydrologist who could only confirm the Suburban Drive area had never been underwater, and therefore was not asked to testify by the prosecution. Even The Laughing Guy’s claim of $31.50 for buying himself a book from Amazon.com got a mention.

The outcome? Judge Perry needs more time to think it all over and has given both sides until next Friday to submit additional info.

So today’s hearing just finished with a bemused looking Judge Perry… a happy looking Cheney Mason & Lisabeth Fryer – and a very ruffled looking LDB.

As an interesting side note — not only did the FBI decline to submit a request for reimbursement, but the Department of Corrections generously followed suit by deciding not to invoice Casey for 3 years bed, breakfast, evening meal (& solitary confinement) in their establishment.
