It has been widely reported that new evidence will be released to the public on Wednesday, March 10, 2010. The new evidence consists of 10 discs with DNA charts and graphs. Clearly, this is going to be a very important day – the DNA is critical, needless to say, and will undoubtedly shed light on many questions that have been nagging us all.
Could the evidence found at the crime scene have Casey’s DNA even after so many months of being exposed to the elements? If her DNA is on any of the items found at the crime scene, it will be end-game for Casey and company.
Incidentally, a report out today tells of Baez requesting the defense be given financial assistance from the state, as Casey is indigent. (I have believed all along that Casey would have fared much better had she opted for a Public Defender.)
This new motion from Baez states because Casey is indigent, she is requesting that the State of Florida pay all trial costs. This would include such things as transcripts, depositions, travel, etc.
Isn’t it a little late to be asking for a handout? The State of Florida has something like 14 million in reserve to pay for indigent cases. Surely the Anthony case will hog a good portion of that reserve? Now, I ask you, is that fair?
Given the news of the Anthony home going into foreclosure, now everyone in the family is indigent.
Many in our country and in Florida are in dire financial straights. Casey deserves a fair trial, but it why in hell should Florida give one penny to her when she’s squandered away so many thousands already to Baez??? (Reportedly $111,000 has been paid to date to his law firm – where did Casey get this money?)
