Verdict Watch day 2 – We Got a Verdict!!!!!
All the attorneys, sans Jose Baez, assembled into courtroom 23 at 8:30 a.m., to receive the jury. (Other reports say Baez was present in the courthouse, but in the hallway.)
Judge Belvin Perry gave the jury his usual admonitions and sent them on their way to deliberate. It took about 60 seconds!
Casey Anthony was there. She will wait in the holding cell at the courthouse. What a long wait it must be for her. I wonder if the reality of what she’s facing has hit her? Is she in total denial, or has she accepted what ever fate deals her?
Has she come to terms with living in jail for the rest of her life? The jail employees say she’s a model prisoner. She’s easy to deal with and pleasant. Jose Baez wanted these jail employees to testify, the judge would not allow it for obvious reasons. What has the opinion of jail guards have to do with the death of Caylee Marie Anthony?
This morning, Kathi Belich, of WFTV, tweeted that Juror #3 was in a suit today. WESH reported that many of the jurors are dressed up today. Hmmm. Are jurors thinking a verdict would be delivered today and they’d be appearing before the cameras tonight?
It’s all speculation …. One never knows when it comes to deliberations.
So…. we wait.
