Casey Anthony’s friday court hearing

January 30, 2009

casey-smiles-as-she-arrives-in-courtCasey Anthony had a smile for the defense team when she arrived, smartly dressed in a gray business suit with her hair pulled neatly back.  She kept busy writing “notes” on a pad that was provided for her.

Judge Strickland supported the defense’s motion to allow them access to the crime scene where Caylee’s remains were found.

Billl Sheaffer, legal analyst for Eyewitness news, said  the defense team’s insistence on examining the crime scene at this point defies logic.”I’m some what mystified to find a logical point for this repeated motion to visit the crime scene. It can yield nothing of evidentiary value either to the state or to the defense at this time,” he said.

The second motion involved Texas EquuSearch. Baez wants detailed information from the group about their searches. Strickland said he would rule Friday afternoon, but said he would deny the motion if Baez couldn’t provide more support for his arguments by noon.casey-writing-in-court

A third motion, filed by the state and involving the defense’s witness list, was determined to be moot due to an amended witness list that was provided after the state had already filed their motion.

The final motion involved Baez’s emergency motion to get rid of the prosecution team.  .The judge denied the motion as expected.

The final matter of business Judge Strickland dealt with during the 35-minute hearing was regarding a trial date.”Time isn’t an issue for me,” Judge Strickland told the attorneys, pointing out that he understands how involved the case has become.No trial date was set, but Judge Strickland said a status hearing may be set for the end of February or early March.

Baez didn’t want Casey at this hearing, but Strickland ruled otherwise. to have to show up Friday morning for the hearing  but late Thursday afternoon Judge Stan Strickland ruled otherwise. Bill Sheaffer said he believes the judge wants Casey present in court so she doesn’t later say she was deprived of her due process rights.

Attorney Jose Baez also requested all fingerprint-related evidence, any DNA reports that show Casey’s former fiancee Jesse Grund was not Caylee’s father, and materials regarding the decomposing hair found in Casey’s trunk. No hearing date has been set for that motion.

    She was probably doodling on the notepad, drawing shamrocks and hearts. Evil in it’s finest form.

    Two things to note; Cindy was not there (knew George wouldn’t be) and second, apparently the Anthony’s have requested the prosecution speed up the case????? Shouldn’t they direct that at Bozo??

    They allow them to present themselves respectfully, they are still innocent remember. We all know she is not innocent, but she is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    friendly mom, I thought The Anthony’s attorney was saying that they didn’t have a problem with Mark Nejame representing TES? Maybe I misunderstood.

    You are correct; I was misinformed. Do you know if they made the statement of asking the prosecution to speed up the trial?

    Paul, I suppose he’s hoping on a “wish and a prayer” that (maybe) they left something behind that would point to someone else….like oh I don’t know….a UFO, yes that’s it, she was abducted by a UFO who transformed themselves into Zanny’s image, and like a ghost, only Casey could see her.

    For someone whose daughter has recently passed away, didn’t you notice how happy she looked? If god forbid anything happened to my children, I would not smile for years!

    I also think something is going on between her and Baez – they look at each other with love.

  10. friendlymom permalink
    January 30, 2009 12:31 pm

    Casey does not look at anyone with “love” except herself. Right now, he is her only friend. Now is she were free, she probably would sleep with him…she would screw a snake, if someone held it for her.

    I couldn’t help thinking, I’ll bet Crazy was just so tickled to hear it may be next year, before it goes to trial. Even though I hope not, just knowing she is stuck in her cage, makes me smile. 🙂

    Casey, sick chick, is confident and happy. The world is still looking at her. Never mind that it is about her murdering a baby. The jacket she wore to court looked like it belonged to a choir boy. She is the best thing that has ever happened in her own eyes. Someone slap that big smile off her ugly face!

    friendly mom. I believe it was the Anthonys that asked their attorney to say to the court “speed things up”

    Suzanne–if you think about what they were talking about today–gaining access to the crime scene (which by the way they had access to right after the prosecution was done–they never went) I wouldn’t be smiling either. I would be crying and probably would have to be sedated.

    marya–You’re right. She is one sick chick.

    Wonder where the business suit came from and who did the librarian hairdo? This was for show. why not show her in her usual setting of “hot body” contestant? Or maybe a flag wrapped around that hot body? Who are they fooling, nobody! She laughed when they asked for a speed up requested by her family. Real funny chicken little! No guilt, no remorse and no heart, only a thumping gizzard in its place. I also would love to slap the smile off her face and maybe someone will soon!

    Thats the big surprise waiting for her,she will not be smiling when the other inmates get hold of her.It may be some time,that don’t matter there not going anywhere either.
    Is mommy dearest doing suicide watch,he does not want to get released to the whackjob.My take: murder /suicide,how much more can he take of listening to SiNdy the INZANEY one.
    No funeral arrangements made yet I see,is she wait for G.B. to go so she can bury em side by side,stay tuned folks theres more bizzaro to come!

  16. January 30, 2009 5:39 pm

    Wouldn’t surprise me if Baez/Baden/Lee wanted to go to the site where body was found at this late date to perhaps plant/find something that would implicate someone else………..maybe Jesse or Zanaida

    I just read that Bozo tried to slip a “Caylee bracelet” to Casey by stashing it in the school-marm uniform he dropped off for her to wear to court. The guards found it and confiscated it, so Casey never saw it. Here’s my question: was it a bracelet from the “Caylee Sunshine Doll?” WTF?! Even if not, what the hell is he thinking?

    Ostella..it was a rubber one..I’m going to go back and see what it said I want to get it right.. he put it in one of her socks.

    January 30, 2009 6:22 pm

    The bracelet read…FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS CAYLEE MARIE ANTHONY..Does anyone know what the sunshine one said??

    Again Dumbo knows better that that..he is so damm blatant..if he didn’t know then ask.

    Wonder where he got the blazer? Did Cindy give it to him..if so she could have put the bracelet in the sock??

  20. ostella permalink
    January 30, 2009 6:27 pm

    The fact that he stashed it in her sock proves he KNOWS it’s “contraband.” Is he retarded? Did he think the guards wouldn’t search the clothes? WTF?!

    It is to be held at The First Baptist Church In Orlando…said about THE PREACHER MAN..Rev Shane Stutzman..thought he was the A’s pastor?? He was the one that helped KC find God…..of course he found The National Enquire..but what the hell sounds like a good deal..

    Nothing said about the private ceremony..maybe Pastor will preside over that one???

    Just saw an article that said Bozo was denied another of his motions, hot dog!! Two out of three ain’t bad. As far as the property search, if he had gone on when it was released to him upon completion of investigation, he would not be having a problem with the property owner right now. He just had to wait to make another delay and it has cost him this time. I hope the property owner has him arrested if he goes on that property. The judge gave permission for him to go look but I do think the property owner has the final say unless there is a court order which no mention was made of. Maybe Bozo will soon stop this delay game he is playing if all his motions are squashed, let’s hope so in order to stop games he plays. About time the announcement came as to the funeral for Caylee. This should end it all, no more memorials and certainly none at the jail. Never heard of a murderer getting special permission to have their murder victims family there for a service including that same murderer. How stupid is this?

    Looking at the photos again just now, I noticed earlier that someone made the comment that Caseys jacket looked like a choirboys. Well if you look at the photo, it is too tight, gaps in the front as if it belongs to a person a couple of sizes smaller than Casey. Still up to the old “Hot Body” thing I see. The judge was not impressed Casey!

    The defendant’s father had to be rescued and taken away after he holed up in a Daytona motel texting to loved ones that he’d rather be w/ Caylee. This a seasoned COP! If he has any doubts personally, he must have some since he was in law enforcement for years. This just turns my stomach!

  26. January 30, 2009 7:41 pm

    The defendant’s father had to be taken in by law enforcement earlier because he was holed up in a Daytona motel sending cryptic emails saying he’d rather be with Caylee. This is a COP. He is now realizing the depth of his daughter’s deception and cop “brain” has now rationalized that his daughter’s story makes no sense. God give his family some type of respite and healing from this tragedy!

    Casey has victimized so many people, and it will be quite interesting to see them all have their day. I hope they do not drag this one too long. So, I see they are having the memorial service. No word on a funeral?

    When all these people start coming together, and her lies start unraveling, they will all start to realize just “how” badly they were all used and manipulated. The puzzle pieces will all start to fall into place, and the picture of Caylee’s terror will be revealed to the world. Most, who have doubts, will walk away with none. Sadly, they will all know the truth of what happened to the little girl they once knew.

    No one from her family was at the hearing.l Of course George couldn’t be there, but what about Cindy or Lee? I wouldn’t care if I were uncomfortable or attacked by the media–I would have been there for my daughter if I believed she were innocent.

  30. MAND permalink
    January 30, 2009 9:02 pm

    Cindy is to busy planning the public memorial..she has to make sure her list of those that are invited and those that are not are up to date. Who knows what Lee was doing??
    Who chose KC’s blazer and hair piece?? I find it hard to believe that Dumbo has not let KC use his lap-top to communicate with Cindy..neither one is capable of not talking to one another for this long..even if it was to argue. He sneaks everything else in and goes against the rules why not this?

  31. January 30, 2009 9:05 pm

    This is not a face that has lost a child. She isnt even upset. Just fry her!!!!!

    She’s the F-ing star of the show ..maybe she should have worn the bracelet to remind her why and for what reason she is there.

    donna- you are right. It’s all in her face–and what’s on her face is blank.

    You know Mand. She should be forced to wear a bracelet with Caylee’s name on it.

    laura–I think George has a conscience and he will at the end of the day do the right thing. I don’t know what he knew when, but he won’t sell Caylee down the river.

    Hello my lovelies..set my alarm clock & watched the wftv videostream live on my puter. MAND..
    About 2 hrs ago WESH announced the memorial would be next Tuesday, then about 10 minutes ago Examiner.com released the following:-
    “A public memorial for Caylee will be held at First Baptist Orlando church 10am Tuesday 10th Feb.” Brad Conway states the date may change since the family does not yet have Caylees remains. WESH got it wrong by one week – hi!

    Hate to say “I told you” but Bozo did TOUCH Casey on the shoulder whilst their eyes met lovingly. {this was before the Judge was in attendance & after she had been “de-shackled.”}
    Much laughter between Baden/Bozo & Casey until the microphones were turned on..then in front of Judge Strickland she remained reasonably poker faced {except when she tried to pinch Bozos pen {they acted like silly school kids}. Baden & Bozo were not very professional.

    If and when the Hose B and crew go to the site where they found Caylee ,they will be followed by the press,or is this a private matter[ say heehaw].
    The land owner should forbid them from entering his/her property,they will be trespassing other wise.Memorial on TUES EH!!who’s gonna eugolize- the WHACKJOB with Georgieboy all whacked out on psychotropicals[say heehaw].Well finally we’ll get to hear from SiNdy a.k.a.[whackjob]this is SICK,maybe they will throw rocks at her,not a bad idea really!!

  41. helen b. permalink

    Paul, I think they have moved the date for the memorial since they still do not have the remains of Caylee. No idea why not, I’d have them if I had to go after them myself by this time. Once the tests are done, they are done and no further reason to hold them. As far as a eulogy, Sindy can’t do that herself. All she can do is holler and nobody would be left to listen to her. Lee is hiding out, scared he is involved and seeking immunity. Poor old George is half out of it because he is the only family member who knows what happened for sure, and he does. Guess the pastor will have to say the words to comfort all the INVITED guests. This is what galls me, never have I ever heard of folks being invited to a funeral or not being invited. Some sick folks live in this world and boy is this family right on the top of the list. If someone did throw a rock at Sindy, it might hit her and knock some sense into her thick head, about time something did.

    Helen B WESH sent me an update {I have a google alert on them} … got my hopes up…first it was 3rd Feb, then 10th Feb then Conway said the date may change…next it has been postponed indefinately…got my hopes up for a few hours…grrrrr

    Seems to me that Baez better get his blank together he has to depose all the witness on the prosecutions list cause he has put them all on his. Thats going to take along time to get done.
    I did notice Casey when the judge came in her demeanor changed on a dime no smile just blank look.

  45. itsamysterytome permalink*
    February 2, 2009 1:12 pm

    I noticed that too Susie. And, maybe the whole point of deposing all the prosecutions’s witnesses is just that–it will take a long time. Give him more time to figure out what to do!

  46. Jill from Western Australia permalink

    We all know Bozo is stalling for time:-

    {1} Deposing witness lists
    {2} Delaying funeral
    {3} Change of venue

    re {2} IMO the Ants asked the church to announce the 10th Feb memorial whilst knowing full well that it would be cancelled {also knowing that only Casey who is ruled by Bozo can authorize this}..BUT..at least their intentions are made public…hope the prosecution remembers this when Bozo complains to the Jury that it was the prosecutions fault that the funeral was held up.
