Dissension among Casey Anthony’s defense team?

November 6, 2008

Eyewitness News has learned that dissension among the defense team may be behind  a 30 page report  sent to the prosecution. In it, Terrance Lenaman argues why her case does not meet the state criteria for the death penalty and why prosecution should not seek it.

The attorney, hired by Jose Baez because he is experienced in capital murder cases, believes Casey should be tested by a high profile psychologist that was involved in such cases as the Unabomber and Elizabeth Smart. This attorney thinks Casey is mentally ill, but Eyewitness News was told Jose Baez has dismissed his suggestion.

This information comes after Eyewitness News caught a major slip-up by Casey’s defense team on national TV last month. Todd Black, hired as spokesman for the defense, had a slip of the tongue on a phone interview with CNN-though he later backtracked and said the statement was taken out of context.  In that interview he seemed to be admitting Caylee was dead. “This is a very serious case involving not just the loss of life of a little girl, but the loss of whatever is going to happen with Casey Anthony.”he stated.

This past  week, Jose Baez replaced Black on the team with another spokesperson.

In my opinion, this just verifies that Jose has indeed been drinking the Casey Koolaid.  How many attorneys abandoning ship does it take to convince Jose Casey is LYING?????  I guess the same number it takes to convince George and Cindy………

This information is from WFTV eyewitness news.  You can read the article below.

    Well, my thinking is that possibly Jose knows that Casey isn’t being truthful. It doesn’t mean that he wouldn’t still defend her right? He certainly isn’t, as her lawyer, going to go on national t.v. and say “Look we know that Caylee is dead etc.” His job is to have Casey claim she’s innocent and then do the best he can to get her the lightest sentence he can. I am sure he knows she will most likely be found guilty so all he can do is concentrate on her sentence. Is that correct? I think it ‘s obvious by the fact that the defense has put out all kinds of scenerios. They are grasping at straws. Caylee is dead and the only thing left to do is “save” Casey. I think that there are many defense attorney’s that will work with a client that they know is guilty but feel it’s their job to defend the person to get the lightest sentence possible. That is morally wrong to me but I think that is how it works, I think Jose works that way. Although I could be wrong, just my opinion.

    I agree pak31….Jose’s job is to defend Casey….Problem they have with everyone they hire is that no one believes Caylee is alive. In my own opinion I believe Jose Baez knows Caylee is not alive. But as a defense attorney his job is to defend her to the best of his ability….

    Actually…I look for Baez to quit in the up coming weeks….I don’t think he will say he is quitting…he will say he is putting Casey in “better hands” because while his job is to defend her…he is not allowed to lie for her…and wash his hands of it in the very near future.

    I think so too. I think he’s made a few blunders, and now he’s got someone in there that is knowledgable about these types of cases, they seem to contradict each other.

    I don’t know if he’ll quit completely, but I think he will fade into the background. Unless he’s so emotionally vested in the case that he can’t back off.
