Oh what next!

Casey Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez, filed the motion Wednesday asking Circuit Judge Stan Strickland to order a halt to all forensic testing so that he can have a say in where and how the evidence is tested.

A source close to the case said, “Baez needs to go back to law school.”

While many question what Casey Anthony is doing at her lawyer’s office all day, every day, one of the things he’s done is file a motion to force investigators to stop testing evidence. Attorney Jose Baez is trying to convince the judge that forensic testing can damage so much of the evidence that there wouldn’t be enough left for the defense to test effectively and that mistakes could prevent them from doing their own testing.

Baez wrote to the judge: “The cost of a given method/procedure could involve cost and timing that are not of paramount interest to the defendant who seeks unbiased and scientifically objective testing.”

Baez wants the judge to force investigators to let him weigh in on all testing before it’s done.

I never heard that forensic testing can damage evidence.  As far as I can tell testing is proving Casey GUILTY and this is not what they want.  This is one of the dumbest things I have heard!  And I am sure it will not be the last from this attorney.

  1. I think it is just a case of Baez grasping at straws. To me when attorneys do this sort of thing it makes them look desperate. It’s all about them getting their client the best possible case.

  2. Any other defense attorney would file the exact same motion.

    Who was the source close to the case. This right here is what I was talking about earlier. People keep throwing out comments hidden behind “a source close to the case” How do you know that source isn’t one of Casey’s drinking buddies?

    I imagine she is probably hanging out at the lawyers office because of the protesters in front of her house…when she isn’t home…there are less protesters out there.

    No Monica it is not. He can ask for someone on his team to be there when the testing is done. Alot of defense attorney’s would not do this.

  4. Mr. Baez has yet to win any of the motions he has filed and in my opinion he is in way over his head. Casey is not charged with homicide and making such a motion based on what she is currently charged with has no legal merit. He certainly could make such a motion if she was in fact charged but this motion demonstrates his lack of knowledge of the legal process while revealing, to some degree his clients guilt. To date Judge Strickland’s ruling have been upheld and it will be interesting to see how he rules on this motion. If things were to go Baez’s way, I think it will hurt law enforcement in their efforts to conduct investigations not just in this case but every case involving forensic evidence.

  5. THE ANSWER TO ABOVE QUESTION AS TO WHY CASEY IS @ HER ATTY’s ALL-DAY, EVERYDAY IS BECAUSE 1) THERE IS A 98.9% CHANCE THAT THE HOUSE IS BUGGED, THE PHONES WIRE TAPPED, CELL PHONE CALLS TO & FROM BEING MONITORED & EVERY KEY STROKE ON THEIR HOME COMPUTER BEING RECORDED. 2) I READ a/o HEARD A SOURCE SAYING THAT THE TENSION BETW HER & HER PARENTS IS RUNNING VERY HIGH INSIDE THE HOUSE. and.. FROM PAST MEDIA REPORTS CASEY HAS MADE CLAIMS THAT SHE HATES HER FATHER, SO I IMAGINE IT IS JUST BEST f/ ALL THOSE INVOLVED IF SHE LEAVES. UNFORTUNEATLEY, US AS VIEWERS WHO ARE WANTING ANSWERS, THIS DOESN’T SIT WELL, BECAUSE EVERYBODY WANTS HER TO BE ACCOUNTABLE. PER THE DEFENSE ATTY HIRED BY GEORGE & CINDY, w/ CASEY BEING OUT ON BOND THEY (the parents) nor THE POLICE CAN ASK HER DIRECT QUESTIONS AS TO CAYLEE’s WHEREABOUTS. THEY HAVE TO GO THRU JOSE BAEZ, now… IF SHE WERE STILL IN THE KLINK, SHE COULD HAVE QUESTIONS AKED DIRECTLY TO HER. I SUGGEST CHECKING OUT THE FOLLOWING LINK: http://blogs.discovery.com/criminal_report/
    THE CRIMINAL PROFILER IN THIS REPORT PUTS THE NAIL IN COFFIN AS TO WHY CASEY ANTHONY IS BEING THE WAY SHE IS. IT IS ALL ABOUT HER & THAT ANYTIME CAYLEE IS BROUGHT UP, SHE PUNISHES EVERYONE BY SAYING SILENT. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS INFO. EACH & EVERY HOUR OF EVERYDAY, I HOPE THAT WE ARE NEAR TO HAVING CLOSURE TO THIS BIZARRE HAPPENING.
