The Death Penalty still stands as Judge Perry denies 8 motions in the Casey Anthony case

August 6, 2010

Judge Perry denied eight motions in the Casey Anthony case today.   In those motions Casey’s defense team questioned the constitutionality of parts of Florida’s death penalty statute which calls for the weighing of aggravating and mitigating factors by a jury if a person is convicted of 1st degree murder and then faces the death penalty. The Florida statute establishes an “aggravating circumstance” when a murder was especially “heinous, atrocious, or cruel.”

Judge Perry stated that the constitutionality of the “heinous, atrocious, or cruel” factor is “well-established.”  He also stated (surprise! surprise!) that the defense team didn’t present any case law to support their argument that the element violates the Eighth Amendment.

So sorry Lyon!  The death penalty still stands!  Jose Baez, was unavailable for comment……

Here are Blevins motions:

    Hi!
    How’s things? Wow, if team Bozo keeps it up, they may do all the convicting themselves. We can just sit back and watch. I am still holding me head as I read Dominic’s trash. birds of a feather, indeed. Everyone remotely connected to this family suffers, guilty and innocent alike.

    Hi Thom–yes the slime is far reaching and no one is safe from it!

    well, things are finally looking up for precious Caylee and quickly going downhill for kc.

    i pray that justice will be served. i wonder if the dd knows that it would behoove them to cite a case law when asking for these stupid motions? apparently they could not find one.
    lol
    mystery, do you think kc will accept a plea deal? imo, i do not believe SA is willing to offer a plea.

    Midget, I agree with you. It’s no longer a matter of Casey accepting a plea deal. I don’t think one will be offered. Her small window of opportunity for getting a deal passed a long time ago. Her fine defense team was too greedy to do the best thing for their client. Her loss, but Lady Justice’s gain!

    Hi Mystery, haha, did bozo think he was going to actually get anywhere with these dumb tactics once again? Duct Tape is the word Bozo needs to focus on as hello to bozo that is what makes it so henious it is a shoe in for death penalty. Geez, even a fifth grader could figure this out. Now bozo needs to remove that clown face and replace it with a serious down to reality facts of the case face and go from there. That would be back to gate #1 for Bozo.

    I agree but will he???? Something tells me he won’t.

  4. August 6, 2010 1:44 pm

    midget, bozo cannot cite a case law to go along with his motions as he doesn’t know any that would exist aside of making up some like his client did with fake baby nanny story. He is probably too scared with the new judge to try faking some, as he might get those chubbed knuckle’s cracked with the judges gavel. Now that would be a hoot to see. lol.

    Since Jose is “unavailable” for comments about his failures, I will supply what would have been his statement if he had been available for comment:

    “I ummmmm…. fired DP attorney Lyon uuhhhhh… back in June because errrr… she was ummmm… obviously uhhhhh… making things ummmm… up…”

    A statement like that would actually not surprise me, Spacely!

    from wesh about kronk

    Mikka,

    Lyon said in November of 2009. “He’s the only one who has been with the body. He’s the only one who magically discovers it. He takes a day off before he discovers it again in December.”

    Uh, I’m sorry, but he’s not the only one that had been with the body–Caylee’s mother was “with the body” long before Kronk was.

    Re Mail Fraud,

    Possible Punishments for Mail Fraud Crimes
    Mail fraud, a felony, carries a sentence of up to five years in prison and/or fines of up to $250,000 when individuals are involved and up to 30 years in prison and/or $1,000,000 in fines when a financial institution is involved.

    Wonder if Cindy gave the possibility that she could be charged with mail fraud any thought before she slapped that return address on the letters to Casey? Or did she just think she is above the law?

    look what bozo and conway say!!!

    In May, employees in the jail’s mail room intercepted an envelope addressed to Casey Anthony which was labeled “Legal Mail – Do Not Open”. The type-written return address suggested the letter had been mailed from the Kissimmee office of Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez.

    Corrections officials told Local 6 the envelope looked suspicious, so two officers hand-delivered the correspondence to Anthony’s jail cell and watched her open it.

    Instead of confidential legal documents, the envelope contained a greeting card signed by Anthony’s mother, Cindy. “I love you and miss you,” the card stated. “You were a great mother to Caylee.”

    Corrections officials confiscated the contraband and returned the card to Anthony’s attorney, according to a jail spokesman.

    Jose Baez told Local 6 the card was not sent from his office.

    Cindy Anthony’s attorney, Brad Conway, said he was unaware his client had sent a card to her daughter.

    So that’s what Cindy was talking about in the letter to Casey where she said something like “why would I send you a card with a different address on it?” Oh Cindy. You may have crossed the line one time to many with this one. Don’t think the attorneys are gonna take the wrap.

    Wonder if Cheney Mason is having fun still/yet?

    Thank you Judge Perry, you are a gentleman and a true scholar who knows his Law unlike the D-Team and cohorts.

    PS to Cindy……Casey was NEVER a great mother to Caylee as you stated. Not even remotely close by any means.
    PPS you weren’t even a good Grandmother to Caylee because you failed miserably in protecting her from the EVIL PRINCESS Casey.

    Swift Justice–I don’t think Cheney Mason will stay the course either.

    Hi Ya Mikka, No, little miss piggy angel of death row is just as bad as the rest of the defense scheme team. She tried to implicate Kronk as well with her BS while knowing fool well he had nothing to do with Caylee period. I also remember her and LKB talking up their BS on another media outlet but i can’t remember which one. It was a guy that had them on and they were unbelievable with their off the wall crap. She skipped out because she doesn’ t want her perfect record tarnished. I am happy to not have to see her or listen to her BS.

    from jvm show
    the expert say,

    And the other issue that I have is she knows once the letters get out, she can take shots at people. She can libel people. Like you know in these letters she took a shot at one of the lawyers. What can the lawyer do about that? He`s really got no defense unless he goes into court and brings a lawsuit against her. So this is sort of an open forum for her to take a shot at whoever she wants.

    CARDOZA: It`s about a family pulling together, trying to walk their daughter out of something and then when they try to create these illusions — it`s the old SODDI defense, Some other dude did it. It wasn`t Casey that did this.

    WEINTRAUB: No, it isn`t.

    BROOKS: Yes it is.

    CARDOZA: Somebody else did it. If they can get one juror to believe that, they`re going to have a hung jury, if they get a juror to believe.

    WEINTRAUB: Michael —

    CARDOZA: And they are already starting to work on jurors.

    WEINTRAUB: You don`t have to get the juror to believe anything.

    (CROSS TALKING)

    VELEZ-MITCHELL: Jayne Weintraub, I`m going to give you the last five seconds. That`s it.

    VELEZ-MITCHELL: Now, Cindy attacks Leonard Padilla, the bounty hunter insisting he is in on the conspiracy. She notes it`s strange that Leonard happened to fly into town two days before little Caylee`s body was discovered.

    Mike Brooks, this conspiracy theory is getting bigger and bigger. The way Cindy tells it, it`s the cops and Roy Kronk and Leonard Padilla all in cahoots with each other. What do you make of it?

    MIKE BROOKS, HLN LAW ENFORCEMENT ANALYST: They sure didn`t mind taking his bail money so that Casey could get out and help them, did they? Come on. She said you let me out of jail and I`ll help you find her. She didn`t do a thing, Jane.

    Let`s not forget Jesse Grund. He was in the mix there too of being involved in this. No, I`m not buying any of it.

    I still think — look, I know Cindy is the grandmother, the mother, but she still — as I say, I think she`s overdosing on that Casey Kool-Aid.

    August 7, 2010 7:35 am

    None of her BS will be mentioned at trial. Sure, she is working hard to influence just one juror via media spin, but the seriousness of this crime presented by the prosecution in the court of law will wipe out any doubt that any juror could have about Casey’s guilt.

She will need more meds and drink more water bec of it…..come trial time, she will surely have a breakdown and will be committed. They are all guilty, the entire family including the slimy defense team in this case. The more stories you get to read, the more bizzarre this ‘family’ appears.

    This is a devastating crime, that is going to be clouded by emotional judgment due to the age of the victim. However, I recently came across a research study that is classifying crimes based upon their level of ‘evil’ and is standardizing depravity for the court system so that judge’s will no longer have to determine whether the ‘heinous, atrocious, or cruel’ aggravator has merit in court.
