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.
