Jose Baez talks about his defense team and Casey Anthony’s case
Baez has managed to hook quite a few nationally renowned experts to help in with Casey’s case. Most notable is Andrea Lyon, a law professor from Chicago known as the “angel of death row”. She says she has never lost a death penalty case (meaning she has managed to get her clients life sentences instead) Linda Kenny Baden, a forensics specialist is another coup for Baez.
“There are ranges of the spectrum where you have science presented in the courtroom that completely relies on empirical data and then you have an area of science that relies on a person’s opinions and beliefs. That is where the area of false convictions comes up that’s where false interpretation comes up and that’s where scientists become advocates,” said Baez.
Forensic expert, Dr. Henry Lee jumped on board early on. He is famous for helping to free OJ Simpson.
So why are these heavy hitters helping to defend an unemployed single mother?
“There wasn’t one person that I was able to talk to that wasn’t fascinated by this case when I was done.” Baez said.
I have a better theory as to why they all happily joined in–They are all media hogs and in it for, 1) the publicity, and 2) their future earnings through books, public appearances, and documentaries. Period. Nothing to do with trying to get off an innocent victim–cuz it’s obvious beyond obvious Casey Anthony is not innocent.
Her guilt was known the minute Cindy Anthony smelled the dead body in the car and realized her granddaughter had been missing for 30 days and Casey didn’t tell tell anyone. All Casey’s previous lies and behavior HAD to have raced through Cindy’s mind that night while Casey was giving her all the lame excuses and lies about where Caylee was. She may have later supressed it, but there had to have been a moment, in the beginning, when she knew beyond a shadow of a doubt what happened.
I think Baez knew, too.
He said, “I will say, as I began to read her police report it certainly seemed to be more of your standard child neglect case.”
Of course, he now says, “We now believe she is innocent.”
