Casey Anthony: Hearing Today on Photos, Videos

March 2, 2009

UPDATE: Casey Anthony murder trial set for October 12.

Casey Anthony‘s defense attorney will be asking a judge this afternoon to block release of personal photos he says could embarrass the 22-year-old murder suspect.

Boo hoo! 🙂

From the Orlando Sentinel:

The hearing is scheduled for 4:15 p.m. before Circuit Judge Stan Strickland.

Anthony is charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie.

Attorney Jose Baez filed a request last week to keep the pictures from Anthony’s account on Photo, an online photo-sharing Web site, from being released with other evidence to reporters.

His request does not describe why the images would embarrass Anthony. But the images reporters found on the Web site last year included dozens of pictures showing Anthony partying with friends.

Her attorney said the photos are irrelevant to the case and he proposed that prosecutors release only images they plan to use at trial and keep the remainder private.

In an email to the media this weekend, Baez’s spokeswoman said the attorney intends to make himself available to reporters with a a brief statement and possibly answer some questions after today’s hearing. But he would not answer questions before the hearing because he would be busy preparing for court, she said.
