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.

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.

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.
