Casey Anthony and Company face Judge Perry 4/30/2010

April 30, 2010


watch it on television at Tru-Tv or online at the links below

Judge Perry appeared promptly at 9:30 AM!

Judge Perry: “Mrs. Drain when will you be prepared to go to trial?”

Mrs. Drain: “The trial date Judge Strickland ordered back in March is reasonable.”

Judge Perry: “Mr. Baez when will you be prepared to go to trial?”

Mr. Baez: “The deadline set forth for expert witnesses is a little ambitious.

Judge Perry: “NO EXCUSES for delays.”

Judge Perry asks if anyone will be asking the jury to be sequestered.  Mrs. Drain said the state will ask that.

Baez has an issue with that and wouldn’t commit.

Judge Perry, “If I decide to sequester the jury we will go somewhere to pick them.  We will return here to OC. and the trial will be held here.”  Judge Perry seems to be favoring that as cheaper than moving the whole trial to another venue.

“If I grant a change of venue, the location will NOT be disclosed (pause) It will not be disclosed until the last minute.”

State estimates 4 weeks for the trial to take place.

Baez estimates 6 weeks to 2 months  for the trial to take place.

If Casey Anthony is found guilty of murder in the 1st degree, how long to argue for the state–1 day.

Baez and Lyon to argue their side if she’s found guilty–3 to 5 days.

Drain: “Will we stick with original trial date of May 9 or is it flexible?”

Perry says he would like to do it sooner but they’ve (defense and state) already agreed.  Perry is inclined to stick with their schedule BUT once he does that,  “I will enter an order and you will be STUCK WITH IT.”  In other words, when he states the date for the trial it will be set in stone.

Judge wants to start on May 2 but  Lyon has a personal matter and can’t do that–her daughter is graduating college that day. Judge will leave the date as May 9th then.

recap Thursday next week.

week of 9th 10th and 11th hear death penalty motions.

Baez corrected Perry’s use of “Lyons” instead of “Lyon–the roaring lion.” 🙄

This is the closest thing to the famous Baez smirk we got during the whole hour!

All in all, it was a very good day, and I’m starting to think this trial may actually happen–on schedule.

    must laugh about this 😆

    One lighthearted moment came when prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick told the judge she had a conflict with one of his hearing dates because she was slated for jury duty.

    “You may be excused,” Perry said.

    Bozo must be kidding!

    Anthony’s defense team also filed a motion objecting to Judge Stan Strickland’s comments when he took himself off the case. 😯

    What a difference in the courtroom! No smartazz comments from the defence. I think the “reality” of facing the DP is finally hitting home with Casey! Except for messing around with her hair, she was quiet as a mouse, and didn’t have that stupid grin on her face the whole time. The cameras didn’t show much of Geo. and Cindy. Frankly, I’m somewhat surprised they showed up, especially Geo. I didn’t see Lee, but didn’t really expect. I feel very optomistic about Judge Perry! He will get this trial MOVING finally! ________________________________________________________________

    Morning Mikka and Mystery! Great blog Mystery!

    bozo want 5 days to tell the jury,what liar,stealer…cma is??? :r0ll:

    Next, Judge Perry wanted to know if the death penalty was the outcome of the trial, how long each side needed for the death penalty phase.

    Jeff Ashton, who will handle the death penalty phase for the State, said one day. Baez and Lyon concurred they will need 5 days

    Sounds like Jddge Perry isn’t going to take any crap and is laying down the law from the get-go. Good for him. Nice to see some movement on this. Baez will stall forever if he’s allowed to.

    Hi Mystery and everyone here, Was fun watching the hearing today and i agree this trial is gonna move right on schedule with Judge Perry. My take on Casey is did you guys notice how far down her blouse was unbuttoned? Was she trying to get the new judge to notice her and take a liking to her or what is up with that? Someone in her Defense team needs to tell her to button up, she is at court not fusion lounge. George looked like he wanted out of there and NOW. Cindy of course was a wise guy as usual like it wasn’t civilized in court when Judge Strickland presided, she is only half right there, it was her snothead daughter’s choice of a lawyer that was so unprofessional and was no fault of Judge Strickland’s, just Bozo took advantage of Judge Strickland’s laid back style and kindness. I thought Lyon needing a week for her daughter’s graduation was too much. Does it take a week to have a college graduation? I was hoping the Judge would aske her this question. For the life of me i do not see why she is even needed now Mason is on board. I think we could all benefit with doing without her crying theatrics, mama hen to Casey, and most importantly the State of Florida could do without paying for her tear theatrics. I mean snothead is indigent so cut out some of the not needed i say. Bozo could go too as for as not needed but then we would have to go through snothead’s theatrics .

    the Defense knows it F’d up completely recusing Strickland now. I bet Judge Stan is privately laughing his ass off!

    mikka, thanks, little every day. 🙂

    I got to watch a few minutes of the hearing yesterday and WOW what a difference! I mean no disrespect to Judge Strickland, but every time I watched the hearings in his courtroom, Casey was often laughing. It almost seemed like she enjoying herself. It was like she viewed the hearings as nice escape from her jail cell. my opinion her face reflected something completely different in Judge Perry’s courtroom…REALITY!

    Yesterday outside the court house doors, Dave Knechel positioned himself with the press, and yelled questions to Baez. He had his trusty video camera, but does not have a microphone YET! This fool caught the attention of Jane VM as causing a broohaha and was labeled an angry blogger. He was angry the press wanted to interview Baez and the Anthonys, and not him! Caylee who? It is all about ME, ME, ME! Look at me! Listen to me! He is making a fool of himself and doesn’t have the sense to realize it. One day he is going to go too far and someone is going to squash him like the bug he is.

    Thank you, Linda! I agree. Why stir up trouble?? This is a great, peaceful blog. Lets keep it that way.

    Very great post. Honest.

    I wish baldy would go back to living in ma’s basement and peddling hot dogs. You would think Donna Brock’s fate would teach bloggers (especially bloggers who are also boogers) not to inject themselves into cases. Aye yi yi, he canna even hide behind the ‘youTube’ generations lust for instant fame. OK, that is the LAST time I am even going to think about the goof.
