Tony Padilla says he wasn’t working for Casey Anthony’s defense team on the Today show
Rob’s interview starts at about 2:19. This is an interesting video if you didn’t see it Friday.
Tony Padilla, the California bail bondsman that bailed Casey Anthony out of jail, says he did NOT work for Jose Baez. Attorneys for Casey Anthony argued in court last week that if Casey Anthony revealed any information to Tony Padilla, Tracy McLaughlin, Rob Dick, or Leonard Padilla, they were bound by the attorney-client privilege and that information could not be used at trial.
Tony Padilla, however, begs to differ. He insists he was not working for Baez and that Baez was insistent that he didn’t want Tony and associates working for his firm.
“As far as signing any paperwork to be part of the defense team, I never signed anything like that,” Padilla said. “Jose was very adamant. He did not want any of us at all working for him.”
Tony, Tracy, Rob, and the infamous Leonard spent nine days guarding Anthony and their $500,000 investment. Their testimony could be key in that it could help the prosecution prove that Casey Anthony was already emotionally detached from her missing daughter.
“At moments she seemed very concerned about her daughter being gone, but other times she wanted to create an upbeat and festive atmosphere,” Padilla said.
Padilla said Anthony never confessed anything to him, but that his employee, Tracy McLaughlin, spent a lot of time with Casey and had insight into how she was behaving and thinking.
“When the time comes I’m sure Tracy’s going to shed a lot of light on what kind of person Casey is,” he said.

If Tony Padilla is telling the truth, and he didn’t sign anything then I would say Jose has a big problem.
