Casey Anthony: “Toss Those Statements”

The defense team would like to have statements made by Casey Anthony to law enforcement and relatives thrown out ahead of her murder trial.

Their reason: She wasn’t read her Miranda rights until three months after Caylee was reported missing.

Full details can be found at the link below.

From CNN:

Her defense lawyers argued Monday that Anthony thought she was in custody in July 2008 when she first talked to police, before she’d had her constitutional rights as a criminal suspect read to her.

“She was handcuffed, patted down, placed in a car, which is a cage, (and she) could not get out,” attorney Cheney Mason said.

But Assistant State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick countered that the suspect words should not be off limits, claiming she freely and voluntarily spoke with police and had not been detained. Early in the investigation, police were looking at a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez — whom Anthony said was the girl’s babysitter, a claim the woman later denied — and not Anthony as the prime suspect in the girl’s disappearance, according to the prosecution.

“In no way did Ms. Anthony, or would a reasonable person, believe that they were in custody during any point in time when she was giving statements to the Orange County sheriff’s office,” Burdick said Monday. “Not being subject to custodial interrogation, Ms. Anthony was not entitled to her Miranda rights.”

    Yeah, I heard the explanation of that last Paragraph described on TV. I sure hope The Prosecution can get around this. All those Statements are just too critical to their Case to go up in a puff of Smoke. I believe Judge Perry is supposed to rule on it this week. I know there’s a God… Please don’t let this whole thing fall apart now— for Caylee’s sake.

    No kidding…she was chatting it up, under no duress, spilling countless lies and now wants to sweep them all under the rug.
