Casey Anthony Live Trial Thread, Day 40 (6/27/11)
Free Republic | June 27, 2011 | truthkeeper

Posted on 06/27/2011 5:13:50 AM PDT by truthkeeper

Hello Trial Watchers.

Grab your yellow legal pads, sharpen your #2 pencils, don your asbestos undies (you'll need them!), and let the flames and the day begin.

Today is the first day of the live thread. Speculation abounds surrounding the surprise one-day recess on Saturday. There is talk of a plea-bargain, discovery violation, witness tampering, and, God forbid, even a mistrial.

Today I heard some feel Chaney Mason may be withdrawing, that he doesn't like working with Jose Baez and is sick of the case.

I believe television coverage begins at 8:00 a.m. and the trial starts at 9:00 a.m.

I can’t stay very long today because I have to go to my office. (Sigh...of all days.) Depending on you all to report on the day’s activities.

Six to eight potential witnesses were left standing in the hallway on Saturday. Obviously it was something very, very big for them to be put off.

Saturday's records were sealed, so we may never know what it was all about.

I really hope the delay was to allow time for Judge Perry to consider some really stiff sanctions on that weasel Baez...

I don’t think I’m as concerned about a mistrial now that I’ve heard a couple of reporter comments indicating “the attorneys hope this can be resolved and that court can begin on time today.” A mistrial would be a travesty.

I have Time-Warner cable and I’m picking it up on HLN. I don’t know if that’s the same station as Tru-TV but I believe it’s carried there too.

Is there any chance that the prosecution has obtained the evidence necessary to prove perjury against Cindy Anthony based on email/phone records from her work? Would they delay court for a day to allow the judge to determine the best way to proceed?

I’ll be here this morning. Maybe you can pull a Cindy Anthony - stay at home while also being at work! Seemed to work for old Cindy.

Thanks for starting this.

I hope it’s not a mistrial. A reporter said Casey came into the courtroom acting giddy.

Perjury is already implied and the defense hasto prove she was there.

I don't know the makeup of the jury. What I'm sure they don't want to see is another death.

There is no "accidental death". Any accident would have been reported...I'm sure.

There is only one conclusion one can draw...That mother hated that child for some reason and IMHO, it may have more to do with the "unknown" father than we think.

I heard that too. I don’t understand why she would be giddy since it probably means another year in jail before they start a new trial. Right now, she’s looking her usual tired, skanky self. I don’t understand why she doesn’t have any access to makeup. I’d also put glasses on her (a la the Menendez Brothers) to make her look more intelligent and to hide the dead look in her eyes. Just my opinion!!

Just saw a replay of Casey entering the courtroom. She smiled at someone - hardly giddy. You have to be so careful about the reporters’ comments. They’ll gin up anything to entertain their audience - instead of educating them. I really long for the old days of Court TV - so much more professional.

Normally I am able to work at home, but I have an office meeting today. Grrr...why this day? I'm stalling as long as I can to see what the heck is going on.

Casey is sitting at the defense table apparently intently reviewing what they believe to be a motion. According to the reporters, this is unusual, normally this is only done when the client has to sign something. They noted that Baez is NOT at the table with the others.

Could it possibly be a motion for one of the attorneys to withdraw? SUSPENSE

I was on jury panel here in Knoxville, TN a couple of years ago in a murder case where the defendant (Rat Boy, as I silently named him) and his girl friend conspired to murder her parents. Unfotunately, the state did not go for the death penalty. Rat Boy had exactly the same sunken eyed look as Casey, with deep dark circles around his eyes. You could just see that the Devil had taken his soul and replaced it with pure evil. The same appears to be true of Casey.

In case you’re curious, I survived two rounds of challenges, but was preemptorily challenged on the third round and dismissed. The defense did a good job of mind reading, especially because they never asked me any questions.

Fellow trial watchers, one of our FReepers recommended this great site for live coverage and commentary: WFTV.com.

You have to go check it out. I was just over there and the reporters are saying the defense is going to move for a new "non death qualified" jury. Judge Perry came out in his robes and handed two big envelopes to the attorneys. (A motion?) Ann Finnell is here for the defense to ask the court to dismiss this jury, the reporter says, based on last week's Florida court decision. Supposedly an excellent lawyer.

I was actually on a jury for a double murder trial a few years ago, here in Palm Beach County. The defendant was very snarky and “smart-alec” looking (sort of like Casey) until he heard our verdict.

Then he broke down like a baby.

To this day, I don’t know if he was really over-confident, or what. Because he acted very confident - almost arrogant. But the defense had NO CASE. There was no way this guy was going to be found not guilty.

The whole thing was quite an experience.

I think the defense team wants her to look as pitiful as possible for the jurors’ sake. It’s working. Can’t stand her hair pulled back like that.

I missed seeing Casey walk in this morning. I see her sitting at the table and she looks subdued to me.

Well, well...now we know what it was all about.

Casey's defense team alleged she was incompetent and filed a motion to determine competentcy to proceed. The court then appointed three experts to examine Casey on Saturday and filed their reports. Both the State and the Defense have now stipulated to abide by the reports of the experts. I thought I heard the reports CANNOT be sealed by law "at this time"...did I hear that right?

BTW, I forgot to mention...the court's experts found Casey COMPETENT to stand trial.

So the show goes on.

Since Perry put the results of the competency into the court records, does that mean we will someday see them? Can you imagine her talking to THREE different doctors???? They could probably write a book each!

Baez getting the Detective to admit he "misspoke" about the date range given on subpoenaed cell phone records for George Anthony and Mr. Fronk (I think).

Sounds like Baez could be trying for a discovery violation or a non-admission, but it sounds to me like that didn't work. He's obviously trying to go after the Detective's credibility on the matter, police misconduct, or shoddy investigation practices. Or all three.

Yes, if they are in the record, UNSEALED, we will be reading those experts' reports. I'll bet Greta and Nancy will have this information on today.

Baez showing Melich an email now for his review...

We should be able to see the records someday. Sounds like Casey was real busy this weekend. I wonder why her lawyers began to think she is incompetent. They should have had her evaluated before the trial, imo.

In my opinion, Baez isn’t laying a glove on this detective/witness. So far, anyway.

Not watching, but glad to hear she’s looking “mean”—hope the jury takes note. She’s probably really ticked off about not getting the “incompetent” ruling to go her way.

Here we go...Baez is going to try and say Caylee's body was moved to the spot it was found during the time Casey was out on bond, in an ankle bracelet, and being monitored by the media.

Well, we knew it was coming.

I think Melich is doing a good job, as he did before. Even if Baez trips him up, Ashton or Burdick will set things straight. I have the tv on, I’m on FR, and I’m listening to the testimony on WFTV through my computer headphones. I think I’ve got the case covered. lol

State now cross-examining Detective Melich. Says OC Sheriff's Dept. had been receiving hundreds of tips and emails during the time in question.

Melich was the lead detective on this case. Says all the subpoenaed phone records focused on the specific time frame of June 1 to July 15, 2008, and these subpoenas were based on information provided by Casey Anthony. With these records, police were unable to verify anything Casey said with regard to the (non-existent) babysitter Zenaida Gonzales.

Witness Geraldo Bloise on the witness stand now for the defense. Being show a drawing of Casey's car and "the forensics bay" that he drew previously. This has something to do with the cadaver dogs, but not sure what. The State is not even going to ask him any questions.

15 minute recess. Legal analysts going to discuss the case now.

You must not be watching on line - she is ALL SMILES when the jury isn't in the room - that was the speculation this morning that something was up in favor of the defense - she looked happier than she has in a long time.

Now knowing she had attention all weekend from psychologists of psychiatrists makes me think she felt like a fairy princess with all that attention! lol

Well one theory could be she has been so unemotional for most of the time but did break down when Lee was up there - maybe they felt she was showing emotion, which is a change for her. Or it could have just been another stupid defense trick

I was thinking maybe Casey wants to testify (for more attention) and the lawyers were trying to keep her from doing it, for her own good. Just a thought. Probably just another defense trick.
