Casey Anthony: Defense Team Embarassed by Witness

Here’s something for you on a Friday afternoon. Jose Baez’s “surprise witness” became an embarrassment this afternoon when he  held a news conference outside of the Orlando courthouse and said that he did not know the Anthony family.


From ABC News:

Defense attorney Jose Baez included Vasco Thompson, a convicted kidnapper, as a last minute surprise addition to his amended witness list earlier this week. Baez claimed that Thompson and Casey Anthony’s father, George Anthony, shared a series of phone conversations the day before 2-year-old Caylee Anthony’s disappearance was reported to authorities in July 2008.

George Anthony angrily issued a statement through his attorney earlier this week denying those claims. Today, Vasco Thompson stood outside the Orange County courthouse and also denied that he’d ever met George Anthony.

“I have no idea who George Anthony is,” Thompson said. “The phone number they got, I didn’t have that number until February of 2009. I don’t know why they dragged me into all this mess.”

    And this is why Baez needs to be investigated for how he spent JAC funds! The PI should have found out that the phone number didn’t even belong to Mr. Thompson until a year later.

    Isn’t it STRANGE that the defense did not EVER make a public deal out of this info RATHER GOOL GIRL Nancy Grace and the MEDIA are the ones that blew it WAY!!!!!! out of proportion. Of course the defense is going to look into EVERYTHING! Yet, I would be these prosection MEDIA KNEW when they blew it out there that it wasn’t a lead the defense would pursue…SHAME! I would love to see them expose George for the lying pervert is REALLY is!

    Problem-o, Cheryl! The defense listed the man as a witness which means he was not investigated by Baez’ PIs beforehand as he should have been. Only the news was reported and that being that he was put on the witness list and his felony was kidnapping which has been a theme in this case with ZFG, the nanny.

    Right, Sherry… The Defense did not do their “Homework”, and this is what they get for their Inefficiency and desperate attempts to Deceive the Jury and sling Mud at Innocent people.
