Monday, the 10th of May, 2010
May 10th is, ironically, the day after Mother’s Day, and the Casey Anthony case has a motion hearing. (Mothers Day and Casey Anthony; a paradox if ever there was one.)
On the roster for Monday, quite a number of things, not the least of which is a discussion (motion) concerning the “party pictures” of Casey. At issue for the defense is whether they should be admissible.
Surely these “party photos” should be ruled to be relevant as they speak to Casey’s activity and state of mind during the time Caylee was missing? One would hope the defense argument to keep these photos out will fall short… Monday will tell the tale.
Also, according to the Orlando Sentinel, a motion will be heard concerning the change of venue.
And, finally on tap for Monday: Keeping the jail visitation logs private. Presumably the defense would like Judge Perry to seal these records. Though, in truth, why the defense wants this motion argued is unclear. It would be pure speculation on my part; however, one may assume this argument concerns the defense wanting to protect the identity of defense experts who visit Casey in the jail?
Monday should shed some light on this story as well.
Tuesday, the 11th of May, 2010
Now, Tuesday’s hearing brings the defense to the courtroom to argue the relevance of the death penalty in this case. I am not a proponent of the death penalty, not for Casey Anthony or anyone, and yet, I do see why some folks in the community are bound and determined to see justice in the form of death for the murder of Caylee Anthony. As cruel a crime as this is, I could not ask for death.
I think a surer penalty for Casey Anthony will come in the future, perhaps far into the future. I believe there will be a time when Casey grows up and realizes what she’s done.
Imagine a fifty-year old Casey Anthony waking up every fine morning in her jail garb to face the reality of what she’s done? A bitter cup of coffee, if she drinks it.
Perhaps when (and if) reality sets in for her, she will wish she were given the death penalty.
We can hope.
