Casey Anthony Defense Attorneys Want Murder Charges Dropped in Death of Caylee Anthony … Dismiss Case, What is the Defense Afraid Of?
The problem is at the end of the day the Casey Anthony defense team cannot answer the most simple question … why didn’t Casey Anthony report her daughter missing for a month?
File this one under desperate acts from a desperate defense team. The Casey Anthony defense attorneys want murder charges against tot mom Casey Anthony dropped. I am sure that they also want their client let of of jail with no bail and the case to be dropped all together which is also not going to occur.
Of course an attorney is supposed to provide their client with a vigorous defense. However, no where does it state in the legal cannons that it is supposed to be an “Alice in Wonderland” defense.
As Blink on Crime is quoted as saying:
Within the response to Kenney Baden’s discovery request from the FBI, this statement appears:
THE FBI DID NOT RECEIVE LATENT LIFTS IN THIS CASE
It does not say “latent impressions”, which in the forensic “speak” means all friction ridge detail images.
Seriously? With a woman’s very life hanging in the balance we are expected to believe such a panel does not know the difference between a latent lift and a friction ridge image in 2009?
The defense claims that the state cannot prove first degree murder. What is the defense team going to say, that they evidence shows that their client is guilty? With such a high profile murder case that has been in the media of course the defense is going to throw everything up against the wall.
Anthony’s attorneys said prosecutors can’t prove first-degree murder was committed or that Anthony ever abused her daughter, Caylee.
“Specifically, the state cannot establish whether Caylee Anthony’s death was accidental, natural, or the result of an intentional or negligent homicide,” they said.
The Casey Anthony defense team did the typical media blitz on CBS’s The Early Show, NBC’s “Today” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” claiming that charges should be dropped and the case dismissed. Dismissed? I thought they said their client was innocent. Isn’t this why we have trials, to get the whether someone was guilty or not guilty by a jury of your peers?
On “The Early Show” Friday, Todd Macaluso, a lawyer for Casey, said bluntly, “Casey Anthony is innocent, she will be proven innocent. The state has not produced any evidence whatsoever to prove their case. The case should be dismissed.”
The 23-year-old woman has pleaded not guilty and claimed that a baby sitter kidnapped Caylee.
However, not so fast! Blink on Crime has some analysis that the Baez defense team has conveniently overlooked. Go figure. Because the defense team for Casey Anthony would never purposely spin the evidence.
WFTV, WESH also rebut defense team on evidence regarding Casey Anthony.
WFTV re-examined its video from months before and found a possible connection: The same brand of rare duct tape on Caylee’s skull was being used by the Anthony family to post a Caylee poster.
“You can’t buy that stuff from Home Depot. It’s industrial grade duct tape, and they haven’t sold it in years,” anchor Bob Opsahl said.
The fact of the matter is that Casey Anthony and her dream team defense have never answered the most simple question in this entire case. Why can’t or hasn’t Baez or Casey Anthony explained the fact that Casey did not report her daughter missing for a month?
On “The Early Show”, co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez asked Macaluso and fellow Casey Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez how they will “explain the fact that Casey did not report her daughter missing for a month, that she was out partying when Caylee was supposedly missing, and that she lied to investigators trying to help her find Caylee?”
Baez responded, “We feel that Casey has a very compelling reason for her actions, and we plan on laying them out at trial. That’s the proper place for us to lay out a defense.”
If a trail is a proper place to lay out your defense what are you doing on TV stating that the charges should be dismissed? Let’s go to trial Baez!
