Has Jose Baez become Casey Anthony’s booking agent?

January 20, 2009

Are book and movie deals paying for Casey Anthony’s defense?  Allegations have been brought before the State Attorney’s Office about where the funding is coming from.    Baez has refused from the beginning to discuss how he was getting paid.  If he has made some kind of deal with an entertainment company as is being suggested, his paycheck (or the size of it) could be subject to the outcome of the case.  For example, if Casey ends up on trial as opposed to making a deal with the prosecution, he would hit a much bigger jackpot. This obviously could cause a conflict of interest between his “employers” and his client, and is a practice that is banned by the Florida Bar Association.  It could, if he does choose the entertainment company’s best interests over those of Casey, be grounds for disbarment.

Baez has apparently already received $200,000 from what is thought to have been photographs of Caylee,  but the terms of that contract were unclear.

“Because of the nature of this case and, creatively, the abundance of the rumors of the source of the attorney fees,” WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer told Eyewitness News  “This court will probably make an inquiry that they’ll err on the side of caution.”

It’s not clear how the judge will handle it, but he will want to make sure there is no conflict of interest and to prevent an appeal. Sheaffer said the judge will likely look into Baez’s funding source to make sure there is no conflict of interest and to prevent an appeal.

“It is to make sure the lawyer is representing the client’s best interest and not considering the interest of who’s paying the attorney’s fee,” Sheaffer said.

A spokesperson for the State Attorney’s Office said the state is aware of the allegations. Prosecutors want to know who is paying his fees and how much money has been spent.  Jose Baez’s spokesperson said Baez has not made any contingent deals. He said Baez is involved with coordinating licensing fees and deals with various production companies, but does not profit on those matters. (Then my question is, WHO DOES??  Somebody is profiting or why would he be making any deals–Cindy and George?  Casey?)

You know, I don’t give a flip how the defense gets paid.  I don’t care if they get paid at all. I don’t care if Casey Anthony chooses to pay her attorney by telling her OWN sorry story of how she became the monster she is.   I don’t care if Baez chooses to pay himself by telling  the story of his backroom association with Casey Anthony.  I don’t care if the Anthonys choose to pay their mortgage by airing Casey’s dirty laundry.I don’t even care if all the people Casey Anthony has ever come in contact with choose to sell their sordid memories of life with Casey and then head on down to the Caribbean to celebrate their new found fortunes.

I say to all of them, GO FOR IT, and good luck with that.  BUT, don’t you DARE try to make money by spinning  Caylee’s story! I don’t want to see one single person lining their pockets with blood money from the exploitation of that  little girl’s death or taking 1 red cent for photos from that baby’s personal life. The only story I want to hear about Caylee is that justice has been served and her death has been avenged. The only photos I want to see are of her killer being sentenced to life in prison.  When Casey or Cindy or George or Jose or ANYONE uses Caylee’s story as their meal tickets they’ve crossed the line of human decency and IMO will be joining her murderer in hell.

    WELL SAID!!! I’ve thought for sometime that Bozo was a source of an awful lot of the sensationalism and circus in this case. Why??? $$$ That’s what he’s in it for. The good news is, if they do a review and Casey under oath, when presented with all of the facts, and circumstances, chooses to stick with him. Then she can’t go back and scream fowl, and mistrial because of his representation.

    Mystery..I agree..no-one should profit from exploiting this innocent child.
    It sickens me to think they are now taking time to argue about money and the cheap ways of obtaining it..meanwhile Caylee lays in a cardboard box..all but forgotten..Dumbo hasn’t found time to get done whatever needs to be done to put this child to rest…Cindy can find time to e-mail someone to tell them they are not welcome to Caylee’s funeral..but can’t find the time to raise a little hell with Dumbo and demand he release this child’s remains..she should be putting pressure on KC to put pressure on Dumbo to get it done.

    What does this say about him as an officer of the court..me thinks it is a mockery of our justice system. How low will they go???

    Can you believe this Mystery??
    Have you ever heard of a case such as this?
    All involved are searching for that path to fame and fortune…is that sick or what??

    Never. I’ve never seen a case like this, and I tell ya, I hope I never do again. I’ve never in my life run across someone like Casey Anthony before. What really scares me is there could be a lot more people out there just like her.

    Mystery you are right! I’ve been thinking for a while that Baez has Casey convinced that she is going to walk right out of this without a scratch. But in the back of his mind he’s thinking the more chaos I stir and the bigger I make this story! The bigger the payday. He could be disbarred half way through the trial and still sale his story for big bucks.

    Yeah, and I bet he does just that. As much as I think Casey deserves an attorney like Baez, I don’t believe he deserves to profit in any way from this, but I know he will. That’s been his plan all along, the creep. He may end up disbarred, but why would he care–he’ll be the richest ex-attorney around.

    Hi Mystery and all, The slugs may get rich but it is Fool’s Gold . What good is all the wealth in this world if you lose your soul to gain it?

  14. January 20, 2009 9:13 pm

    Mand, Bozo is claiming it is the prosecution’s fault that Caylee has not been released for burial. Another one of his may lieing tales~~

  15. January 20, 2009 9:16 pm

    To be honest with all of you, i would not put it past the A’s to sell caylee’s bones, they have done nothing in her honor that i can see yet.

    knight owl,
    I just watched the Greta video from the 16th where he said the prosecution was responsible for their not being able to bury Caylee yet. What a crock of you know what.

  17. January 20, 2009 10:08 pm

    As I see it, we are past that point, where everyone is now and has been making money off of Caylee. This was about a missing two year old little girl. Right from the start money started to pour in from Kid Finders with no way to track it. The Myspace page asking for donations to be sent to the Anthony’s house. Then the “CAYLEE MARIE ANTHONY FOUNDATION, INC” started in Oct of 08. There are more as we don’t yet know the extent of the licensing deals but they included photos and videos of Caylee.

    Put yourself in the Anthony’s position and ask yourself how you are going to pay the car payment, the electric bill, water, mortgage, etc? These people not only have not been working, Casey stole lots of money from them along with George and him losing money to who knows what scam or gambling. Every Penney they have taken in is because Caylee is no longer here. Their hands are so full of blood money they could visit the blood mobile every day so long as it was parked in the bank parking lot.

    Just disgusting, John. I don’t care if I had to stand in line at the soup kitchen and park a cardboard box under an overpass to sleep in, I would not sell out my grandchild.

    The A’s could have received assistance from decent folk had they not driven them away.Most families that face a tragedy such as this are surrounded by family and friends..the A’s had or have neither..the church they supposedly belong to was for the vigils only..the congregation did not seem to step up and support them..plus THE PREACHER MAN SOLD HIS STORY TO THE NE. The A’s distanced themselves from any and all people that appeared honest and truly caring..they seem to feel more comfortable with the likes of those with questionable character .. Kiidfinders etc.they don’t ask questions about where and for what the money is being used for..the A’s are the lowest of lows as is Dumbo..the PI’s and the rest of these leeches.
    And the baby waits..thrown in a cardboard box ..all to busy positioning themselves to make whatever money they can .
    The A’s should be fighting whoever they need to..to get Caylee’s remains and give her what she deserves..a final resting place..show some respect.

    Why would they be so concerned,there more concerned about saving there own asses!!at this time.Hose B is just passing the buck[no pun],now why would the prosecutor be holding the burial up,don’t make sense to me,they finished with the remains and gave em over to Hose B.SiNdy shut-up!!

  24. January 21, 2009 1:26 am

    Hi Mystery, yes i saw that on Greta also. Bozo Baez is lieing as usual. State were long finished with the remains. Bozo has no doubt some snake in the grass for his agenda gain to keep them on hold, A’s agenda is as long as no funeral LE may not arrest them. When they all started going down the lieing road of deceit and profit from the death of an innocent, they all sold their souls to the Devil and the Devil is continuing to pull them in deeper and deeper as each day goes by. Money was the sheep in wolves clothing the Devil used to get them and they all fell for it, hook, line, and sinker~

  25. January 21, 2009 1:38 am

    Mand, Don’t think for one minute pitt bull cindy would not be getting those remains to bury them from Bozo Baez if she wanted too. The one and only reason the A’S are not doing so is due to not in their best interest. LE just might start making arrest after caylee has her funeral . Not Cindy, George or Lee either one looked for that baby when they knew she was out there lieing somewhere but chose to instead lie and deny and use that baby for personal gain. This is exactly why i for one have no sympathy for them. My sympathy only lies with the innocent baby Caylee and her great grandparents. The rest don’t deserve my Sympathy.

    The last time I threw up a little was when OJ tried to publish “IF I DID IT.” I didn’t think it was possible to top that level of moral repulsion… But the Anthonys and everyone associated with their defense are like malignant social tumors. Every single one of them represents the worst possible qualities of humanity. All the anthonys deserve to rot, and Baez should (at least) be disbarred.

    Thanks Mystery..you told it truthfully…my mind boggles at the way the American Justice System works…{eg..Bozo being allowed to show his laptop to Casey etc}…instead of this being a straight-forward investigation it has turned into a media circus one which involves money!}
    Did you see the “pic” {momlogic} of Baez yet again touching Casey whilst she was all goo-goo eyed looking at him…sri had to go and “up-chuck!” … time that Caylee is laid to rest!..Mand suggested that as she will be cremated that samples of her bones/tissues etc should be held just in case forensic science “upgrades” ..just like DNA did…truly hope this occurs.
