Casey Anthony: Plea Deal in Check Fraud Case

January 20, 2010

WFTV is reporting this morning that there will be a plea deal in Casey Anthony’s check fraud case.

It appears that the terms of the plea deal might not be until next Monday afternoon. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Very interesting! Does anyone think that she will also accept any plea deal in her murder case? Just askin’ 🙂

From WFTV:

A plea deal in the check fraud case certainly could explain why the defense has not yet deposed the alleged victim, Amy Huizenga, and it explains why the judge is not demanding that the trial start first thing Monday morning. He was adamant about the case going on January 25, no matter what, and even mentioned a plea as a possibility in court during one of the last hearings.

Casey Anthony told murder detectives they would never trick her into a confession that she killed her daughter Caylee. That was the day she was indicted for first-degree murder.

Now, Eyewitness News has learned she will take some legal responsibility for allegedly cleaning out hundreds of dollars from the bank account of her ex-best friend, Amy Huizenga. The evidence is clear, including security videos, receipts and canceled checks, and Casey has paid back the $664.25.

From CBS News:

Casey Anthony, the Orlando mother who insists she didn’t murder her 2-year-old daughter, may be prepared to admit to some financial finagling — allegations of check fraud. That case against her, involving a former friend, has been delayed, signaling a possible plea deal.

Anthony’s former friend Amy Huizenga accused her of check fraud. The trial was scheduled to begin Jan. 25, but Orange County court officials said it won’t happen. Instead, there will be hearing in the case on that day, and CBS affiliate WKMG reports the delay could indicate a plea is coming.


More Details Emerge in Death of Caylee Anthony

January 21, 2009

New evidence released today in the case of  Caylee Anthony shows that her body was placed in a laundry-hamper bag and then secured in a plastic garbage bag before she was buried. It sounds as if someone took the time to plan what they were doing. Thoughts?

From the Associated Press:

Documents the state attorney’s office in Orlando released Wednesday also show the girl’s mouth was covered with silver duct tape that had been adorned with a heart-shaped sticker. Duct tape also was attached to her head.

A utility worker found the 3-year-old’s body last December in woods near where she lived with her mother and grandparents. Her mother, 22-year-old Casey Anthony, has been charged with her murder.

The toddler was reported missing to authorities in July, almost a month after she was last seen. Her third birthday passed while she was missing.

From People Magazine:

With details that are both graphic and heartbreaking, new court documents released Wednesday reveal that the body of toddler Caylee Anthony was bound by duct tape that had a heart-shaped sticker placed on it.

Evidence further shows that a Winnie the Pooh blanket, several iron-on letters and a toy horse were in the laundry bag that contained the slain 2-year-old, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

The remains were recovered by the Orange County Sheriff’s department near Caylee’s Orlando-area home on Dec. 11. FBI investigators also found residue that “appeared to be consistent with the adhesive side of a heart-shaped sticker,” sheriff’s Detective Yuri Melich is quoted as saying in the documents.

Documents also state that investigators seized sticker books and scrapbook material from Caylee’s home, along with other toys that matched the one found with her body.

“It appears that the sticker was put on the duct tape intentionally,” Melich is quoted as saying.

Caylee’s mother Casey Anthony, 22, is being held in jail since being arrested Oct. 14 and charged with her daughter’s murder, even though her daughter’s remains had not yet been discovered.

From MyFox Orlando:

Another 311 pages of discovery documents related to the Casey Anthony case were released to the public on Wednesday morning.

The documents also show that Caylee’s mouth was covered with silver duct tape that had been adorned with a heart-shaped sticker. Duct tape also was attached to her head.

This isn’t news, but rather a funny, and well developed, clip which pretty much sums up Casey Anthony’s attitude. I’ve seen this posted on a few sites already and most seem to have enjoyed it.

Caylee Anthony: No Change Of Venue Motion Filed

January 20, 2009

Despite speculaton that a motion will be filed, the Orange County court says right now, there’s been no motion filed for a change of venue in Casey Anthony’s murder trial.

From Central Florida News:

There have been reports the defense wants the trial moved, but in a news release, the court said that hasn’t happened.

If Jose Baez does file that motion, a hearing will be set and the motion will be considered in open court.

The motion is public information, and the court said they will release that information if, and when, it’s filed.

Casey Anthony: Case Being Prepared Against Jose Baez

January 20, 2009

The Florida Bar told television station WESH today  that they have an “active case” working against Casey Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez.

It will be interesting to see how this develops in the coming days.

From WESH:

Baez said he knows about the investigation and said it’s been filed by people with an ax to grind.

Baez has signed on world class forensic experts from as far away as Canada, and he will not answer how he’s paying for it, he told WESH 2 he has not done anything illegal in his handling of the case against Casey Anthony.

He said he has done nothing but conduct himself in a most professional manner. He said he has done nothing unethical.

This comes as experts continue to question how he’s getting the money to pay for his legal dream team.

“How is he affording to represent her and are the decisions being made in her best interest and with her permission?” attorney Richard Hornsby said.

Baez has consistently refused to answer where the money is coming from.

“First of all I think it’s an inappropriate question. It isn’t a concern of anyone who’s paying for all of this,” he said.

If Baez has made improper deals, Hornsby said that could provide Anthony grounds for an appeal.

“It would be so easy for Miss Anthony to claim what is called ineffective assistance of counsel,” Hornsby said.

Baez confirms he is the subject of an ongoing Bar investigation. He said it was filed by people with an axe to grind and has nothing to do with allegations of unethical financial dealings.”It’s all a crock,” he said.

Baez declined an on-camera interview, but added that he has nothing to hide.
