Today is the day she may walk free. Prepare yourselves.
Call me Pollyanna, but the Judge did give FingerBoy 6 days. Hopefully he has scoured the law so she can cool her heels a little longer.
There’s one hero in this story: Ms. Drane-Burdick (sic) who is still here fighting for justice. God bless her.
No financial assets to appeal.
With gain time applied, up to 15%, she has to serve 3.4 years. She has already done almost 3 years. She does 90 days or so. Probably won’t even get to the state prison.
Does that mean that if she appeals, she would have to use a court appointed atty not Baez?
Court recessed—no further matters to discuss.
Right after the verdict was read I said, “watch, a juror will come out and say we believe she was guilty but the evidence just wasn’t there...”. I knew it would be said and I knew it would piss me off. Here’s the problem with that “excuse”.
When a juror begins a trial they are to have a presumption of innocence for the defendant. After the State finishes their case, a juror, as in this case, then concludes the person is guilty. Then the defense comes in and presents their case. After the defense is finished and closing arguments are completed, a juror (jury) still believes a person is guilty, the defense did not provide reasonable doubt at a level sufficient to acquit the defendant.
Hearing jurors say we know a defendant is guilty then setting them free is nothing but a cop-out enlisted in hopes if gaining some sort of sympathy for refusing to do their job. It may help them sleep at night but, in cases like this one, the public will sit up at night wondering when and if this “guilty but acquitted” defendant will murder again.
Baez could do it, but if he chooses not to—she gets another attorney.
HUH? she won’t meet any tough broads behind bars?
So what happened exactly?
The judge on Fox said she should be out by next month.
Bill Schaefer on WFTV just said she will probably be out in 30 days or less.
Good thing she’s not a teacher - her students would be walking all over her!
Maybe she’s safer in jail because I’m sure there’s a lot of people that would like to she her head smashed in.....including me!!!!!!!
“Somewhere a village is missing 12 idiots”
So, how many years has Casey put in already and how many more will she spend? My assumption is she will do one more year and has served 3 years? Someone told me that with good behavior she will not have to serve anymore time?? How does this work??
Very articulate response!
“God is not bound by Double Jeapardy”.
If I am ever (God forbid) unjustly charged, I want ALL the protections...I do not trust the government, nor do I trust mob rule highlighted by our illustrious, hysterical media.
I rather trust a jury of citizens rather than a “professional jury” as some suggest..we already have a professional jury with Obama Care.
I helped hang a criminal jury once. Sometimes it's the right thing to do.
Judge Napolitano tells Bill H. she walks in a month.
