Florida Bar investigates Casey Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez–again
It seems the Florida Bar has launched another investigation into Jose Baez!
Allegations have been made against Baez that he told private investigator Dominic Casey to NOT call 911 if he found Caylee Anthony’s remains. There has been nothing presented as proof that Baez did this, but the Florida Bar has begun an investigation to find out if he violated any rules. The bar would not say who made the complaints but did confirm that several have been made. Whoever filed the recent complaints signed a sworn affidavit that they believed an ethics violation may have occurred.
Dominic Casey told detectives in January he did not find the remains but if he had he would have called 911.
“I wouldn’t have moved. I would have said a prayer. I would have called 911 and I would have stood right there — if I were to have found Caylee Marie I would not move from that spot,” he said.
BUT, D. Casey told the detectives in that interview that someone asked him to keep quiet if he found the body. A judged deemed that part of their conversation “confidential” and did not release it to the public.
Baez called the accusations ridiculous, and issued the following statement today.
“Mr. Baez has done nothing unethical throughout the investigation and as Casey Anthony’s defense lawyer. He and his counsel will respond at the appropriate time to refute any and all of untrue allegations.”
“Like I’ve told everyone all along, the defense has not done anything unethical,” Baez said.
I don’t know if this is true or not, but the Florida Bar has taken it seriously enough to investigates. Dominic Casey would not be in my list of top 5 most honest guys in the world.
But if it is true, does that mean it was Jose Baez on the other end of the phone while D. Casey was searching the area where Caylee was found–not Lee, as Hoover suspects? D. Casey worked for Baez before he went to work for the Anthonys. That means anything he heard Casey Anthony say would be considered confidential. Does it also mean anything Baez said to him was confidential?
Most important of all, if this is true, and if D. Casey had followed instructions, what did the person,( be it Baez or someone else) giving him those instructions have in mind for Caylee’s body? Was he gonna move it, compromise it, or something more sinister than that?
