Tom Luka has resigned as Lee Anthony’s attorney
Tom Luka, attorney for Lee Anthony, has withdrawn from the Casey Anthony case because “his representation is no longer necessary.”
Lee was deposed for 8 hours yesterday, and Luka said he, “spilled it all and nothing was different.”
Luka said Lee has “use immunity” from prosecution as a result of his testimony.
USE IMMUNITY: A witness’s compelled testimony in a criminal case cannot be used against him for criminal prosecution.
Transactional and use immunity are granted to a witness in order to preserve their constitutional protection against self-incrimination.
The states grant either form of this immunity. The federal govt. grants only use immunity.
A witness with use immunity can still be prosecuted, but only based on evidence NOT gathered from the protected testimony.
