   JUDGE STRICKLAND RULES ON MOTION TO 

DISMISS MURDER CHARGES   

    The defense previously filed a motion to dismiss the murder charges against Casey Anthony and Judge Strickland ruled on that motion today. As many assumed it was not even considered. However, the defense team has really put it’s foot in it’s mouth this time. They now have until February 1, 2010 to provide evidence that they claim they have showing that someone else placed Caylee’s body in the woods while Casey was in jail.

     The mistakes made in filing this motion  truly makes me wonder if Casey Anthony is the least bit worried that her life is in this teams hands because I would be scared to death. It seems to me that if a lawyer is filing a motion to have a death penalty charge dropped they would dot every I and cross every T twice. Yet they failed to provide the witness list needed to support their claims.

     Linda Drane Burdick ripped the motion apart with the following statement: “It’s a farce. It doesn’t even come close to the legal requirements necessary for the court to even entertain a motion to dismiss, the entire motion, from top to bottom, it is replete with errors, it’s insufficient as a matter of law.”

    When Strickland explained that Casey Anthony had not sworn to the proper and legally required facts necessary to ask him to dismiss Andrea Lyon should have just not spoken. Her argument was not an argument at all. “It cannot be the intent of the Florida legislature that a person swear to something that they do not have personal knowledge of.”

    Jose Baez spoke with Kathi Belich following the hearing and as usual he had something very important to say: 

“Is there gonna be a bombshell on February 1st,” WFTV reporter Kathi Belich asked Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez. “There will be something. There definitely will be something,” Baez said

  **For those of you who are not familiar with Baez and his statements, I will translate this for you: ” I have no idea what the hell I am supposed to do now” **

     In the motion that was made to stop the video recordings of jail visits the defense notified the wrong agency. WHAT?? They were supposed to notify the Orange County Government who has run the jail since 1987 and instead notified the Orange County Sherriffs Office about the hearing. Oh what will they say about that?

LEE ANTHONY: 

                 TRIAL DATE SET IN CHECK FRAUD CASE

    The defense did not get what they wanted as far as the check fraud trial being delayed until after the murder trial. A while back it was said that by delaying the fraud trial it would be harder for a jury to convict anyone with no prior record. I am not sure who took that poll but I would have no problem convicting Casey Anthony for what she did with or without a prior conviction. It doesn’t matter to me whether she took a million dollars from someone or whether she would have given someone a million dollars, she is still to me a cold hearted murderer.

 

GEORGE, CINDY AND LEE’S TRANSCRIPTS RELEASED

FROM THEIR INTERVIEWS WITH PROSECUTORS

     When the Anthony’s were interviewed by the prosecutors in August this past year they claim that there are many inconsistencies in George’s story. Surprised? Not at all, it seems like the entire family has had many forgetful moments, statements that they didn’t mean, and just out and out lies.

     One thing he did state and I believe he was telling the truth is that he never asked Casey about the incident involving Caylee. His reason being they all believed the house was bugged. So what if he thought the house was bugged! Isn’t he the one who wanted to know no matter what or who exactly what happened to his grand daughter? Yet here we see another attempt to coddle and protect Casey. My only hope is that the obstruction charges aren’t being filed until after this whole mess is over, but are definately being considered. Here are the links to the transcripts from the interviews:

GEORGE:    http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21310228/detail.html

  ** FINALLY! While everyone knew the Anthony’s were profiting from this horrible tragedy, George admits that the family has taken thousands of dollars from interviews and that Brad Conway is negotiating a book deal.  I have alot of thoughts about this but I will leave you to have your own…

CINDY:   http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21310276/detail.html

     ***Interesting little piece of information I thought: Cindy admits that she never saw the trunk of the car that supposedly had rotten pizza and maggots in it. She claims that she got that information from George. hmmm

LEE ANTHONY:http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21310241/detail.html

 

All in all it wasn’t a great day for the defense. They did win the motion to have the images of the crime scene and autopsy copied to give to their experts. However, I did find Strickland to be extra cautious and was infatic about his concern that those photos would be released or leaked. Baez assured him that the only ones who will see them are those who need to, even stating that those on the defense team that had nothing to do with that portion of the investigation would not see them.

    *******************************************************************************

GEORGE AND CINDY 48 HOURS INTERVIEW

     If you have followed this case from the beginning, you have learned by now that the interviews advertised as exclusive and promising never before answers to questions in this case are nothing more than another payday for all of those involved.

     The latest interview hosted by 48 hours was the same interview we have heard over and over. This time the defense team joined the Anthonys and Brad Conway was also present. The defense team continues to state that the prosecution is leaking information and trying this case in the media. Yet again it is the defense team sitting infront of the cameras not the state. I don’t understand how it is that the defense continues to whine and moan that the case is being tried in the media and yet they continue to give interviews…

     It has been reoprted that the Anthony’s were paid 20,000.00 for licensing fees, Brad Conway 3,000.00 for who knows what and I have not heard anything about the defense. Yet I wonder if in fact the Anthony’s was only a cut of the licensing fees as I seem to remember the last licensing fee for ohotos was 250,000.00.So although I am speculating I just wonder if the fee was higher and being used to fund the defense…

   It appears as though the Anthony’s along with Lee and Mallory continue to struggle while not being able to find work due to the meda coverage in this case. In fact they struggled so much that they decided to go on a  cruise while the 48hours interview aired. When asked about the crusie Cindy Anth0ny replied to WFTV: YOU GUYS PAID FOR THE TRIP” She then of course was her usual snipppity self and said” THANKS FOR RUINING OUR TRIP!” 

     All in all there was of course nothing new to report in the case, there was however, lots of continued denial, blame, and whining…. My only hope is one day this will be about Caylee…

     Brad Conway, the attorney for George and Cindy Anthony sat down with reporters to give a press conference based on what has recently been released by the Sate.

  http://www.wftv.com/video/21160739/index.html  

I guess my first thought on this would be: WHY? Brad Conway is the attorney for the parents , not for Casey Anthony. Why is he sitting down and disecting the documents one by one? If he is in fact only representing the Anthony Grandparents, he has no business going on tv to discredit or give credit to anyone involved in the criminal trial. The Anthony’s continue to cry out that their daughter is already prosecuted and the case is being tried in the media. Yet, isn’t that what the are doing? AGAIN? Jose Baez of course cannot go on and give a press conference as he continues to accuse the State of leaks, yet if he instructs Conway to do the press conference then I guess it is okay?

* One of the most telling statements had nothing to do at all with the documents but one that I find amusing. Brad Conway was commenting onthe attorneys involved in this case and stated: (slightly out of context) “THE STATES ATTORNEY’S OFFICE HAS EXCELLENT ATTORNEYS, AND THE DEFENSE TEAM HAS (PAUSE) A A VERY  GOOD TEAM. ” hmm does Conway even question their ability?

     There were some moments during the video that caught my attention. When asked about the claim that Brad Conaway has made regarding a foreign hair that could not be identified from the car he adamantly stated that yes there was a hair that was not identified as Caylee or Caseys. Now my understanding of that report was that it was identified but not enough to say which one it was. When pressed further about this Conway backed off, saying he didn’t have the paper so he couldn’t comment on it.

     Of course the duct tape issue came up and he is stating that the reports are saying they are not alike at all when the earlier report  said they were. According to Bill Schaeffer, the duct tape that was found on Caylee would have broken down in the elements and therefore the argument that they are not the same is mute.

     A reporter asked Conway about the emails exchanged between Cindy and Dominic in which it appears that she is trying desperately to dig up dirt on Kronk. The reporter asked if she was emnarrassed that those documents were released. He gave an answer of when there is an active investigation going on you investigate everyone. Not really a good answer but I didn’t really expect them to say that yes Cindy was so embarrassed that these are out. Another interesting little piece of info was that the search continues for Zenaida Gonzales in Puerto Rico, and that when an reporter asked if they are interfering with the State or proper authorities investigation, Conway answered that he didn’t know if they are investigating anything.

There are good questions raised all throughout the press conference and although I am sure this was done to put speculation in peoples minds, I feel no different than I did before this. ISNT THIS POTENTIAL JURY TAINTING?

     Bill Schaeffer commented on the Anthony’s claims that the new document does nothing.http://www.wftv.com/video/21160739/index.html

SURPRISE! NEW MOTIONS…

     As it has come to be expected the Defense Team files new motions today. The first one being to Toss the Capital Murder Charge against Casey along with the aggrivated child abuse charge.  In doing so it would also toss the death penalty. In the motion the defense claims that there is no evidence that Caylee was harmed in any way: SHES DEAD, YES THERE IS, AND I FOR ONE DO NOT BELIEVE THE DEFENSE HAS SHOWN THERE IS NO EVIDENCE.  They also claim that she was proven to be a good and caring mother: LET’S REFER BACK TO THE COMPUTER MAN AND HIS ACCOUNT, THAT IS JUST ONE PERSON…

http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21163520/detail.html

     The second motion is of course one to preclude the death penalty. In the reasons cited the defense claims that the prosecution harbors bad faith motives against the defendant. ( AGAIN EVERYONE IS OUT TO PIN THIS ON CASEY RIGHT) They also cite that the prosecution does not have enough to  have a Capital Murder charge.

     The fourth reason given states that the prosecution cannot prove that Miss Anthony committed capital murder because the defendant stood in a familial or custodial authority over the victim. ( OH I THINK THEY CAN…)

    The defense also claims that even if they are able to prove that Casey Anthony is guilty of murdering Caylee they cannot impose the death penalty because they cannot say “how” she died . ( WELL I GUESS IF CASEY WOULD HAVE BEEN STRAIGHT FORWARD AND SHE COULD HAVE BEEN FOUND EARLIER THEN IT COULD BE PROVEN BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT THAT CASEY DIDN’T DO IT)

  http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21163542/detail.html

     Did I miss something after the last motion was filed? Did the judge rule on the motion to dismiss all charges against her? If not then why are they filing these motions without the other being heard? I am not sure so if you have any information on that I would greatly appreciate it.

STAY TUNED I AM SURE THIS IS JUST GETTING INTERESTING….
