Casey Anthony’s dream team
Apparently The Casey Anthony dream team is a force to be reckoned with. Jose Baez has been busy gathering a group of individuals who’s profiles are even more famous than his client.
“I have mentioned for many weeks now and I know a lot of people have not paid attention or it’s been discounted, but I have been forming a defense team and Ms. Kenney Baden Is just another member of our team who was brought on it in her area, which is forensic science … I’m not about pumping our chest and flaunting who we have or who we’re bringing in, you’ll see it when they come. We just want to do things right and do a professional job for Ms. Anthony.” Jose Baez said.
Lead counsel Jose Baez is playing to win, his spokesman Todd Black said.
“As you can see, he’s been putting together a tremendous team,” Black said.
There’s a star New York City defense attorney with Hollywood connections; a best-selling mystery novelist who doubles as a forensic anthropologist; an expert who testified on the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King. There’s even a guy who’s an expert about bugs.

Professor of Criminal Justice and Biochemistry at The Graduate Center and John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and Senior Science Advisor to the President at John Jay.
Kobilinsky serves as John Jay’s point man on a range of scientific issues relating to criminal justice, as he shepherds everything from a more rigorous method of bite-mark pattern comparisons to a better way of doing the excruciatingly complicated lab work involved in matching tiny bits of DNA gathered at a crime scene with samples collected from felons and suspects. At a moment when the CSI phenomenon is suddenly brin
ging unprecedented numbers of crime-fighting students to John Jay and The Graduate Center, he has suddenly become quite indispensable.
“I’ve been very critical of forensic procedures that are more art than science.” Kobilinsky has said.
Who is paying for the star-studded defense lineup?
“I don’t think it’s any concern of anyone who is paying for all this,” Baez said after the hearing.
I’ve said this before–It’s not our concern if the Anthonys are paying for this from their own pockets or if the “experts” are donating their time with no ulterior motives. It’s everyone’s concern if people are being paid from money earmarked to help find Caylee. And, IMO, if these people are taking on this case not to find the TRUTH but to further their own careers, they’re no better than the vultures (like Kidfinders) that have surrounded the Anthonys.
