On this Day in 2011 — Casey Anthony — Not Guilty & Acquitted

.
Today marks the 2nd 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 2 years 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.

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!

Team Casey to appeal lying convictions today (1/8)

Attorneys for Casey Anthony will make oral arguments Tuesday in Daytona Beach in her appeal of four convictions of lying to law enforcement officers, court documents show.

The 1:30 p.m. hearing at the 5th District Court of Appeal will address Anthony’s concerns about having being convicted of lying to law enforcement officers. The convictions came from her telling investigators that her daughter was kidnapped when she knew 2-year-old Caylee Anthony was dead, Orange County sheriff’s investigators said.

Casey Anthony, accused of murdering her daughter, was acquitted by a jury July 5, 2011, of charges of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter and aggravated child abuse.

Her attorneys will argue that Judge Belvin Perry made an error in not suppressing Casey Anthony’s statements to an investigator, which she made without her rights being read to her.

Casey Anthony’s lawyers, Cheney Mason and Lisabeth Fryer, will also argue that Casey Anthony’s consitutional double jeopardy rights were violated when she was convicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement officers, court documnets filed show.

UPDATE: Texas EquuSearch – closed door hearing

From: CF 13 News – 1-17-2012 :::

“Casey Anthony will have to answer two questions for Texas EquuSearch. Just two.

Judge Lisa Munyon ruled Tuesday that Anthony was still entitled to invoke the Fifth Amendment on many of the questions Texas EquuSearch wants to ask her as part of their lawsuit. The group is suing Anthony. They contend she wasted their money and resources because they say she knew all along her daughter was dead.

The judge did rule, however, that Anthony could be compelled to answer two “admissions”:

  • Admit that you did not observe or hear George Anthony call 911 at any time to report that he or you had discovered that Caylee Marie Anthony had drowned in the swimming poll at your parents’ house on or about June 16, 2008.
  • Admit that you were aware in September 2008 and October 2008 that EquuSearch was conducting searches for your daughter, Caylee.

She has 10 days to provide answers to these admissions.

Anthony was found guilty last July of four counts of lying to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office regarding her daughter’s death. Since she is appealing that conviction, her attorneys have long insisted that she cannot answer any questions until her appeals have been exhausted.”

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.

Casey’s Probation Update: The DCA finally reach a decision!

Well folks, it had to happen sometime between now and Thanksgiving, and it has.  Following on from biased Pam Bondi’s response yesterday – and the response filed by TeamCasey this morning the DCA has finally reached a decision on Casey Anthony’s probation.

That decision being Casey Anthony will, after all, be required to commence her illegal probation sentence, starting this coming Friday 8/26. Over the past 3 years, Casey has already endured way more than most people endure in a lifetime – and she will get through this too. Make no mistake.

By the way – Pam Bondi is BIASED. No way is she fit to handle this case impartially… especially after her Casey defence Team bashing on the NBC Dateline documentary a couple of years back. She’s still pissed at the Not Guilty verdict and this is her way of showing it.

Here’s the latest news from WESH.com:

Caseys Probation Update The DCA finally reach a decision

Casey Probation Update: Emergency Motion decision expected shortly from DCA

The latest news coming out of the 5th District Court of Appeals today, is that Casey Anthony will get some response from her appeal (and possibly even a stay), before next week’s probation deadline of August 26th.

“It would not be uncommon for a stay to be issued while all the paperwork is being gathered for the 3-judge panel to make their decision” said Joanne Simmons, 5th DCA Spokeswoman. The court is currently waiting on a hard copy of the Emergency Motion filed (via email) yesterday by Team Casey.The state will have until noon Monday to file a response.

Team Casey file Emergency Motion (8/17) to stop Casey Anthony’s probation

As expected, Team Casey filed an Emergency Motion, Wednesday (8/17), in an attempt to stop Casey Anthony’s probation. The document was filed with the 5th District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach.

Click the link below to see the actual 18-page Emergency Motion – (PDF doc opens in a new window).

Casey Anthony Emergency Motion  081711

In the document, Casey’s Defense attorneys Lisabeth Fryer and Cheney Mason call the probation an “illegal sentence” – citing bias from the original judge in the case, and mentioning interviews Judge Stan Strickland had previously given to WESH 2 News (where he criticized the jury’s acquittal of Casey Anthony)…  the Nancy Grace show (where he stated he was ““shocked at the result of the trial”) – and News Channel 13 where similar comments were relayed.

You can watch one of the cited Strickland interviews below from WESH 2 News (July 11th) – “Former Casey Judge Talks Verdict, Jury”:

Former Casey Anthony Judge Verdict Throws Me For A Loop

The Emergency Motion also alleges double jeopardy and states Casey has already served her punishment for the check fraud case, and challenges Judge Belvin Perry’s jurisdiction in the case. The earliest the court will look at the filing is today, Thursday 8/18.

Unlike the jurors, Perry & Strickland’s agenda is not to weigh evidence and come to a judicially fair conclusion. Far from it. These elected officials have popular opinion to attend to – and that popular opinion is still screaming for revenge… and they plan to give it to them regardless of what the Constitution dictates. Unlike the jurors who have no political agenda to tend, Perry & Strickland are apparently free to impose whatever suits their fancy – and in this case it’s a bitter ongoing vendetta from Sour Grapes Central.

Casey Anthony’s Probation – Dumb & Dumber Strike Gold for the BS State!

Once again, stupidity and incompetence both rule and take center stage. This time it’s Judge Perry’s turn to make a farce of the law with his ruling on Casey Anthony’s probation.

Albeit predictable, I’m also disappointed by his decision to agree with Stan Strickland’s nonsensical complaint – claiming that Casey Anthony didn’t serve her probation for check fraud charges while in jail.

We all know she did. Florida DOC knows she did too. There are documents to prove it also. Both of these 2 clowns (at some point) swore to uphold the American Constitution. They have failed, yet again, to do so… and that’s the disappointing part.

Judge Perry is the very same guy that allowed & welcomed the prosecution’s fantasy forensics, junk science, flawed CacheBack data (remember “84 searches”?), the non-existent “heart shaped sticker” and a bunch of other BS into Casey’s bogus “Murder Trial”. That in itself speaks volumes for the integrity of Judge Perry, as does his latest ruling on Casey’s probation.

Let’s not forget… Judge Perry, in addition to being a pro-prosecution Judge, is also up for re-election in 2012… so pleasing the masses in Florida is obviously very high up on his personal agenda.

With further regards to Casey doing probation in jail, and if I remember rightly, The Laughing Guy himself (Jeff Ashton) suggested it and Stan Strickland took him up on it. Casey therefore has already done her probation as ordered. There are a whole bunch of lawyers and judges out there who also agree that Casey did indeed serve out her probation while she was in jail.

An almighty louse-up by the State of Florida yet again. The only right decision ever made regarding this case was the Not Guilty verdict.

I’ll leave you with these pertinent observations from CayleeAnthony.org:

It’s obvious that Orlando wants her to suffer on probation as retaliation for the verdict, but will Casey Anthony really be suffering? She’s on probation, she’s not in jail. Realistically, she’ll either stay with one of her rich attorneys or in a ritzy hotel suite. She’ll probably be living better than most of the people frothing at the mouth to bring her back. She’ll probably be dining on champagne and caviar, sleeping on satin sheets, watching high definition flat screen TV’s, relaxing on expensive leather sofas. If she’s in a hotel, she’ll probably have an ocean view. Does that sound like suffering to you?

The people in Orlando should just move on with their lives instead of prolonging the inevitable. She’s NOT going to be suffering on probation and in a year she’ll be released anyway. Why prolong it?

Plus, has anybody ever stopped to consider that possibility that if her attorneys appeal the probation sentence and WIN, the State of Florida will have not one, but TWO shiny, black eyes!

Here’s the summary from WESH.com:

Casey Anthonys Probation Dumb and Dumber

The next stop in the Casey Anthony Roadshow is the much anticipated Trial Costs hearing – currently scheduled for August 25th.

This is where the prosecutors want Casey to pay for being prosecuted on false evidence and pay for the decidedly shoddy investigation it cost to find it all.  The grand total has not been disclosed. Is there no end to this chicanery? Probably not. Watch this space…

GO CASEY!!!
