The prosecution asks: Where’s the death penalty qualified attorney in the Casey Anthony case?

May 7, 2009

The prosecution is actually looking out for Casey Anthony’s best interests!  They filed a motion today to determine if her attorney, Jose Baez really is qualified to handle a death penalty case in the state of Florida.

Baez does NOT have the proper credentials to handle a case as serious as the death penalty but he can participate in the trial if he works alongside a death penalty qualified attorney. Terrace Lenamon was that attorney but he “is no longer involved in the representation of Miss Anthony.”

According to Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure, attorneys have to meet minimum standards to handle death cases.  Some of those rules involve the number of serious and complex cases an attorney has handled.  Baez says the defense plans to bring in a death-qualified attorney at a court hearing on May 28th.

read it below:

You can bet there will be a  new death penalty attorney named and you can also bet that attorney will have to agree to following Jose Baez orders–whether they are in the best interest of Casey Anthony or not.  Baez will never give his golden egg up.

    Who in their right mind would join the Turd Herd now to be Baez’ ventriloquist dummy? Its a sinking ship…he’s an embarassment to the profession…

    Why wait bring them on now. Why all the secrets. The Anthony’s and Jose are just like Casey good at keeping secrets. I can not imagine anyone waning to help, seems to me that whoever it is will have to let Jose run the show or he will be crying “your picking on me because I am Hispanic.”

    I just wrote to Larry King and told him to ask the Anthonys why they feel it neccessary to lie so often. I also suggested he give Mark Klass equal time.

    I emailed Larry King also.
    Baez once again orchestrating the “media release” of the new attorney. Drawing more attention to himself.
    The new attorney is counting on lots of media attention just like the rest of them. Get their name & face out there. ugh

    I have a feeling that whoever Bozo pickes will end up threatening to leave the case and possible cause a mistrial. No one would put up with Bozo and KC for too long. KC will probably do whatever Bozo asks of her including “personal favors” if ya know what I mean 😉

    Good question for Larry King Daisy..lets hope it is asked.

    LVSusie…I would like to know the answer to that as well.

    Hmmmmmmmm…I take it that Malacuso isn’t qualified…wonder if the newbie will be male or female?…Will he/she be Hispanic?…will he/she go in front of the media?

    I agree with Laura…why all the secrecy…oops forgot his need to sensationalise…my bad :mrgreen:

    Roll on the 28th OR the LEAK…whichever comes first 🙄

    Ostella— the Turd Herd will prevail—some unsuspecting fly will happily step into it.

    laura-he’s waiting cuz’ the drama will bring more publicity.

    LV Susie–I don’t know why Lenamon left, but if he had any sense at all, he realized the Casey Anthony trial wasn’t gonna do his reputation any favors!

    Daisy1–I don’t know if you saw the other Larry King interview, but he won’t be asking any tough questions. He let the Anthonys lie through their teeth on his show and he didn’t even raise an eyebrow.

    Molly– I agree. Whoever is taking Lenamon’s place thinks he’s giving his career a big boost. Won’t he be surprised when he actually crawls into the snake pit!

    Macaluso’s specialty is cross-examination of so-called expert witnesses. I don’t know if he was death-qualified

    The family on a Media blitz just in time for another doc. dump go figure. So predictable, just like Casey’s lies. I am seriously pi$$ed, I have seen a lot of things in my years but never have I seen a family turn it’s back on an innocent child and act as if we are all talking about a stray dog. I think they show the family pets more respect then they do their dead grand-child, they are worthless human beings!!!!!!!!!!

    Did anyone else realize the Scamthony’s “fake” foundation site is up and running? It’s . So if anyone wants to Email them and let them know what they think about their continued efforts to get money off their dead grandchild, feel free!

    I wonder if the association’s ordinances would permit that? They do have a homeowner’s association for their neighborhood.

    it’samystery- are you kidding me? Hey the Anthony’s are above the law didn’t you get the memo, of course the home is zoned for business. Who will say anything? I would think their neighbors are scared to death to say anything, look how they treat their grand-daughter.

    Niecey–I wonder that, too, BUT if alls they do is sit on their butts and collect money while making an occassional appearance at missing children’s search areas (while the camera is conveniently pointed at them) I guess it doesn’t really matter. LOL

    May 8, 2009 10:06 am

    laura–LOL–they forgot to send me that memo! The neighbors are probably disgusted to the point they don’t want to do anything that might bring the reporters back to the neighborhood.

    LOL! But the Association sure had a fit about LP’s memorial! Must be a one sided association. Laura, thanks for sharing the memo, as I didn’t receive it either. I’ve got to get on those office workers, missing things like that. LOL!!!

    Well how rude they didn’t send you the memo it’samystery. Just another reason for me not to like them, they forgot about you.

    That’s ok, laura–You’re obviously one of the “chosen ones.” As long as you keep us in the loop it’s all good!

    I agree Mystery! J.H. just asked a good question over at my place about us compiling info on our investigations to some of the media, like 20/20 and the like. I think J.H. wanted to do like an informative thing, but where everyone would have the opportunity to sign off. My suggestion is one post giving links to all of the info that each of us have dug up, that way the post wouldn’t be too long and all the info would be there. Also each author would have credit for their material. I think it’s a win win. What do you think?

    I was thinking since you just took a vacation, that you could post it. I could help. Email me if you want to kick it around.

    That’s a good idea Niecey. I will put all my links together this afternoon and evening and we can compare for duplicates?

    Hey Mystery,
    I don’t think Linda Baden has the time and KC does not have the money to be lead on this trial. Linda just wants the media attention and she can get that without all the work of being lead.
    Bozo will probably try to hire…er I mean a volunteer since KC has no money…. female hispanic attorney and KC will have a cow! How dare Bozo bring another women into there scaremance!

    starfish–Yes Baden is in it for the face time on TV. KC better cut back on the pop tarts if Baez brings in a hot new female attorney. Her girlish figure is fading fast behind bars.

    It must have been SHEER HELL to have had Cindy for a Mom growing up! ewww If Cindy had been a calm, rational and caring Mom who didn’t go around choking her daughter, and punished her when she lied and misbehaved in a proper way, CAYLEE would be alive today. I truly believe that she is partly to blame for Caylee’s death. I can only imagine how many times she has “slugged” George!

    Daisy1–I agree with you. Some people on the blogs feel that Cindy and George have no ownership in this. I believe that the way they dealt with Casey–indulging her–covering for her–allowing her to steal from them and others, and to lie with no consequences or repercussions allowed an atmosphere to exist where Casey felt she could do anything and get away with it–including getting rid of her daughter.
