Defense: Video Violates Casey's Rights

Defense attorney Jose Baez is trying to stop a jail house video of Casey Anthony from going public.

The videotape of Casey Anthony reacting to the discovery of a child's remains in the woods behind her Florida home -- remains that were eventually I.D.'ed as her daughter Caylee -- has not been seen publicly. And Anthony's defense attorney would like to keep it that way.

Jose Baez has filed a motion claiming the videotape violates Anthony's rights and will make it harder to find a fair jury for her trial on a first-degree murder charge.

According to sources who have seen the video, the footage shows Casey watching a television report on the gruesome discovery, doubling over and beginning to hyperventilate.

It's been reported that investigators said the tape showed "Anthony's consciousness of guilt, because it was days before the remains were identified as her daughter Caylee." Carlos Padilla of the Orange County Sheriffs Office disagrees. "Some reporters are overzealous," he says. "[Her reaction on tape] doesn't prove anything."

The defense maintains the video was deliberately taken to show his client in a bad light and

violates Anthony's patient and medical privacy rights, since it was taped in the Orange County Jail's medical clinic.

But, according to Allen Moore of the Orange County Jail, most of the jail is under some sort of video surveillance at all times. "If the content is on the hard drive, it can be pulled at any time by investigators," he says.

Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of her daughter Caylee.

In related news, Casey's brother Lee gave his deposition today in the defamation suit involving a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez. Lee Anthony has said he had never seen nor met Gonzalez and only heard about her in July when his sister was arrested. Casey had claimed she had last seen her daughter when she left her with Gonzalez. Gonzalez claims she's never met Casey or anyone in the Anthony family.

Do you think Casey Anthony's reaction to the discovery of the remains proves her guilt?

Yes I do. She’s guilty, guilty, GUILTY. Lock her up and throw away the key. FOREVER.

And lock up George, Cindy and Lee for aiding and abetting her while you are at it, please?

I HAVEN’T BEEN ON LATRELY, COULDN’T FIND THE RIGHT PLACE TO COMMENT.
AS FAR AS THE TAPE SHOWING CASEY’S REACTION TO THE FINDINGS OF THE BODY….YES I THINK IT SHOULD BE SHOWN TO THE JURIORS, I FIGURE THAT SHE HAD TO KNOW THAT THE BODY WAS THERE AND THAT IT WAS CAYLEE. MAY MY GOD FORGIVE ME IF I AM WRONG IN ANYTHING I SAY ABOUT THIS CASE, I AM ONLY GIVING MY OPINION AS IS EVERYONE ELSE. AND IT SEEMS TO ME THAT WATCHINKG lee give his deposition today that he was not truthful in what he was saying. his body language was very noticable and it was like either deceit or denial….what do some of you think?
i noticed that at times he wouldn’t make eye contact either with the lawyers or wo ever was asking questions. sad…so sad, this whole thing is so ungodly sad. i pray for all of them to find themselves and admit any truths that they know. i am glad that i am not walking in their shoes.

Watching Lee give his deposition..he (and the rest of the family)act like the mafia is after them, they are so afraid of that glorfied brat..throwing the ultimate tantrum by killing Caylee!

Baez wishes to avoid this tape coming out for obvious reasons, same ones he has for not wanting the latest pictures he discovered on the CD’s given by the prosecutors, which are apparently very incriminating for casey. But as i recall in a statement he made to the media earlier,he believes that the prosecution should only release evidence that they will use in court. So that is what they are doing.This evidence is peanuts compared to what casey said before to police in regards to caylee-when she admitted she had lied to them about everything.Give us all a break-she’s guilty not because of photos or tapes-her mouth is her only Doom!!!!

While I do believe Casey is guilty, I don’t think the tape would prove anything to me one way or the other. She was either A) upset that her daughter was found & now it would be easier to convict Casey or B) upset that the remains could possibly be her daughter’s meaning she is dead. The reaction for either of those reasons would likely be the same. Therefore, I don’t think it proves guilt or innocence.

I think the tape does show “consciousness of guilt” because she never showed any reaction before when they thought Caylee’s remains were found in the Econ river and when a little girls dress was found in Blanchard Park. She reacted because they said where the remains were found: right where she put them. She felt like she was kicked in the gut because 1- her no body, no crime defense just flew out the window and 2- She knew the cops would find the duct tape on the mouth of the skull and other evidence that linked the murder to her and 3- she could no longer play games with her family pretending Caylee was “close” and coming home soon.

There are so many details bothering me about this mess casey has made. When detectives confronted KC about all her lies, 1)That the sawgrass apartment she said she left Caylee was not occupied and has not been for months, she insists still that this information is true, that it was there and only there at the stairs where she left caylee with zanny. Then she is arrested and released,goes home only to admit to her brother Lee she has lied again to police. Fabricates another lie about caylee being taken by zanny in Jay blanchard park- This has never been said before by casey or her family up until now,Come On!!! 2) Why isn’t Cindy,Lee and George on the news asking… no better yet pleaing,screaming and shouting like they do for the OCSD not give up on the search for this Zenaida-Whom till this day they believe kidnapped and killed caylee-they did so many interviews before when they thought she was alive. Don’t they care to find justice for there grandchild-Would this not help casey if they really believe she is innocent. Again are they so naive and believe she is Innocent. I say Show the tapes,pictures,anything and everything they have to the public, SHE’S GUILTY and SO IS HER FAMILY.

Jan -I totally was thinking what you just wrote-why if the Anthonys believe someone else killed Caylee are they not out looking for this ghost person at all costs..??..Also Casey for that matter-who does she have to protect now..Caylee is already dead,so at this point she should be able to tell the “truth” of what really happened so her daughters “kidnapper/murderer” can be brought to justice….Wait….Do they let inmates have mirrors? Probably not..I guess the mystery will remain.

What about Caylee’s RIGHT TO LIFE?? Casey took that away from her and should have NO RIGHTS! The tape of Casey’s reaction when she was told Caylee’s remains had located should be shown to the world…

WOW! I beleive that is the only feeling that i have in the case of Casey Anthony. How can anyone out there defend her? Her daughter was missing for 30 days before she reported her to the police and not only that,there are pics of her partying!! If someone had told you that they were taking your child from you so that you could learn a lesson (is what casey anothony is accusing “Zanny the nanny”) then how do you have the time to party, or even worry about posting the pics up on her damn photo bucket? There is just something seriously wrong with this girl!! I am a mother of 2 wonderful boys they are 7 and 4 and mind you i am a young mother like casey, i myself will turn 24 on the 26th of this month. So i was much younger than her when i first became a mother,yes i did miss out on partying but guess what, she made the choice to raise that little girl! WOW! i just cant get it wrapped in my head, i just CANT. She is guilty and she needs to be put in prison for the rest of her life. No death penalty she just needs to rot in jail and think of the pain that she has put everyone though including everyone watching and keeping up with this. Let her die alone like she did her daughter. My heart goes out to her family, but my mind does not. They need to realize that their daughter/ sister has a problem and the only way that she wil ever own up to it is if they make her grow up and stop believing her lies over and over again. Caley is now more safe then she has ever been in her 2 years on this earth. God Bless Little Caley. I know that she is in heaven wathching over all children including mine to make sure that they are safe from harm.

this is such a very sad story, and I have been watching it from the beginning. In my opinion, of course she is as guilty as it gets, she is nothing but a spoiled brat, and her parents and brother are still trying to defend her and protect her. I personally have suffered the death of 2 of my children, and believe me she shows none of the classic symptoms of grief that a parent shows when that happens. I could not even function for a year and my face was from all accounts, “”the picture of Grief” Casey shows none of this at all. It is not normal for anyone , let alone a mother to not fight for her young, even animals do that. You can see the grief on her Father
s face, but he seems to be the only one who cares that little Caylee is gone, the others seem only interested in saving Casey.
As far as her diary goes, the content should be checked a little closer, because if it was written in o3 then she was only 16 years old, did anyone ever think of that.
I am appalled that anyone would try to defend her, she should be put away , and hte death penalty should definately be put back on, what about poor littel Caylee, she has no say .
People who are sending her money should also be banned from doing so, what right does she have to treat herself to luxuries, she is supposed to be in prison!!!, and aby the way , the cell they are housing her in is bigger than my kitchen, 11’ x 7 kinda large for a prison cell is it not===she is being treated like a queen, not a prisoner.
I hoep someone will step in and get this thing solved soon, she is a sick puppy and needs to be punished and taken away from the public just in case someone else gets in her way of having fun, would she kill them too??
If her new Lawyer thinks he can prove this was an accident, he is as sick as she is , DUCT TAPE DOES NOT GET PUT OVER A CHILD;’S MOUTH BY ACCIDENT, HOW WILL HE EXPLAINE THAT ONE??

Casey, if you can read this, I just want to say that you are not fooling anyone. Your behavior and reactions and lies have guilt written all over your face. You look guilty, you act guilty, and everyone knows that you killed that beautiful innocent little girl. Your own flesh and blood. Your baby. Your a disturbed monster who deserves to sit in that smelly little cage for the rest of your life.

GIVE ME A BREAK March 11, 2009, 9:03 AM

Casey has no rights she lied, stole and killed her daughter,we’re keeping her up in prison.We should be able to see everything she’s ever done.As Americans we work and pay taxes to keep prisoners fed clothed,and a roof over their heads,she ran around feeling other girls breast in public letting people take pictures,it’s her own fault. You should’nt have done such stupid things Casey and while doing them let people tape you and take pictures.She must have wanted somebody to see all these tapes and pictures or she’d never let anybody tape them. To bad Casey,if you had stayed at home and took care of your daughter instead of getting drunk and screwing maybe you would’nt be in all this trouble.You should have had a job and been supporting your child instead of going out and getting drunk.

i cant believe someone would do that to there on lil girl

nevermind March 18, 2009, 11:21 PM

I really don’t know what to believe. I think it seems as though all the evidence findings thus far were found a little to easily. Almost like a framing, by whom is the question. I do think that there was more than one anthony involved in poor little caylee’s death and even if casey didn’t do it she knows what happened.

Easily i am not saying against that which you saying but i have to exclude that you are not valid within this issue. Why that is known man convertd much in length of time? Can’t we merely coincide on all causes? We’d comparable injury in our business.Decoding the problem want some concentrated analysis
