Casey Anthony: Funding Granted for Experts

Judge Belvin Perry has ruled that the defense team will be able to test two DNA samples at a DNA lab located in Pennsylvania.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Casey Anthony’s defense team got approval today to spend more than $2,000 to conduct DNA tests on two items — including Caylee Marie’s shorts — at an out-of-state, specially certified laboratory.

Chief Judge Belvin Perry made the decision during a quick hearing in which attorneys for the defense and the Judicial Administrative Commission appeared via tele-conference.

From WESH:

The defense asked to spend bout $2,000 in additional taxpayer money to have a lab in Pennsylvania check for DNA on a bag and some shorts found with Caylee Anthony’s remains.

Originally, the defense wanted to send the materials to a lab in Holland, but Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry denied that request.

    Why? Why did the judge grant this? WAC said they should have it done in state. Why not, if it would cost less?

    come on judge Perry…………….Don’t join the “out of you mind” ranks that have dictated this farce of a trial.
    NO ONE….SIMPLY NO ONE HAS HAD THIS KIND OF RIDICULOUS DEFENSE.

    Well, I guess Pennsylvania is closer than Holland. Wonder if this Lab is one of those ones that work
    “only with Defense Attorneys”…. Next, I suppose, The Prosecution will want to go check the place out and then do their OWN thing with the Hair somewhere else…. I can’t help thinking “Contamination” by the time this Hair is done making its rounds….
