HE’S BACK … HMM, LOOKS LIKE A CERTAIN ATTORNEY WANTS MORE TV FACE TIME .
It would appear that Aaron Hernandez has hired new counsel for his double murder trial. Jose Baez, yes that Jose Baez, announced on Wednesday that he will be defending former New England Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez in his upcoming double-murder trial. Aaron Hernandez has already been convicted in 2015 of a murder in Massachusetts, is charged with shooting to death two men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, in 2012 outside a Boston nightclub.
A top Florida lawyer who stunned the nation when he won a murder acquittal for a mother accused of killing her toddler has taken on another high-profile, high-hurdle case.
Jose Baez announced Wednesday he was defending former New England Patriot standout Aaron Hernandez in his upcoming double-murder trial.
Baez, best known for his defense of Casey Anthony, said he realized Hernandez was the subject of much speculation in the court of public opinion — after being indicted in three homicides — but asked the public to keep an open mind “and let the facts unfold in a court of law.”
Of course we all know Jose Baez as the Florida defense attorney who gained fame during the Casey Anthony murder trial in 2011 where a just of fools inexplicably found the tot mom “not guilty as sin” of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. So what else would Hernandez have to lose than hiring Baez, he already got one murderer off Scott free. Hmm, better be careful Aaron, just how do you plan on paying for Jose’s services?
People have speculated why Baez would take such a case. Are you joking? Baez will get all the face time in the world as he has attached himself to a high profile case and there really is no expectation that he will win.
The family of deceased Kate Steinle has filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, names the city and county of San Francisco, former county Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi and the United States “for their failures to perform mandatory duties and/or for the unconstitutional and/or negligent acts and/or omissions of their officers, officials, agents and/or employees.” Kate Steinle was shot to death by 45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez -on a San Francisco pier last summer. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez is an
undocumented immigrant illegal alien and a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico.
The fatal shooting of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier last summer — allegedly at the hands of an undocumented immigrant deported five times from the United States — became a focal point of an angry national debate over illegal immigration.
On Friday, her family filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, San Francisco County’s former sheriff, the federal Bureau of Land Management and the man who allegedly fired the deadly shot.
“Kate’s death was both foreseeable and preventable had the law enforcement agencies, officials and/or officers involved simply followed the laws, regulations and/or procedures which they swore to uphold,” the lawsuit said.
On the evening of July 1, 2015, Steinle was walking on a busy pier of the Embarcadero with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air. The 32-year-old medical device sales representative was shot in the chest, a bullet piercing her aorta, according to the lawsuit.
Her father, James, held her in his arms. “Help me Daddy,” were her last words to him, the lawsuit said. She died later at a hospital.
I so hope the family of Kate Steinle wins this lawsuit against San Francisco for their “sanctuary city” policies!!!
