Funny you say that. I know he was innocent aswell. Its pretty conveniant how (while he is int the bathroom ready to take a shower).. the mother leaves to "go to the store" while her BF was about to take a shower. SHE is the one that did this, and now Mr. Diaz is in jail awaiting his fate. It is such a shame.

This is to Friends, Family, Vazquez ...

You say that Nilton was found guilty so 'easily' huh? Then why did the jury debate for so long before coming to a conviction? Why did he get charged with SECOND degree as opposed to FIRST degree in which ANYONE that kills a baby would get charged with? SOMEONE had to pay for the death of the baby, and Nilton ended up being the EASIEST to convict. You should be ashamed for what you said on here about how he's a baby murderer, when the murderer is the mother herself. What kind of mother doesn't even SHED A TEAR when she comes home from the store only to see a bunch of ambulances on her doorstep? What kind of mother takes off to P.R. in the MIDDLE of an investigation to get to the bottom of the death of her baby? What kind of mother leaves to go back home to P.R. in the MIDDLE of the trial that determines the fate of the case for your daughter? We KNOW it's not because of work since you're probably having a man support you back there just like Nilton supported you here. What kind of mother .. not a MONTH after the incident has pictures all over the internet of her, drunk and having a BLAST with a bunch of different guys back home in P.R.?? Face it Friends Family Vazquez .. the murderer is NOT in jail today awaiting his fate .. the murderer is in Puerto Rico right now living it up. ECSTATIC that she was not even REMOTELY looked upon as the murderer. Remember .. she even said it herself when Nilton first got arrested .. "good, now they cant look at me as the murderer since they arrested HIM." Remember this .. and I'd type it in spanish if I could .. Karma. What goes around comes around. You'll have to deal with what you've done ONE day.

Being a juror is not an easy task, nor is it one that should be taken lightly. Before ever forming an opinion about anything, you should first experience it. Seeing photos of a two-year old's broken skull is not an easy task. There is always more going on than what the media reports. Unless you were in the court room, hearing the testimony and viewing the evidence, then you cannot form an educated opinion. For those of us who were there, it still wasn't as easy as some would like to think. I pray for both families and all of us affected by this tragedy!

It literally makes me sick to my stomach that an innocent man sits in jail. aol .. if you were a jurere.. I ask you this .. if you did not have enough evidence to convict mr. Diaz on murder, why convict him of a LESSER charge? The goal of the whole trial was to find the murderer od the young baby correct? So if he cannot be convicted of that due to (obvious) insufficient evidence, how can he convicted of child abuse/involuntary manslaughter? And if HE is to be charged with child abuse, why is the MOTHER not being charged with child neglect for leaving the baby alone, while her boyfriend was in the bathroom? I understand that the jury and the judge felt as if SOMEONE had to pay for the death of a beautiful baby girl, but why was SHE never ever questioned? She was NEVER, EVER a suspect. Personally, THAT is where Mr. Baez mishandled this trial. You have COUNTLESS numbers of medical examiners claiming that this hemmorage cannot be caused and ignored. They all said that with the severity of the injury, the baby lost all conciousness right away. WHY would Mr. Baez not bring up the mother not being questioned? He brought it up ONCE, then left it alone. Choosing to go with a possible fall, when the countless number of medical examiners disposed of that notion, explaining that the severity of the injury would be that of a 13 story fall. I feel for Mr. Diaz. I too was there in the courtroom. I dont question that the jury did their best to come up with a fair verdict, but I'd be lying to you if I didnt think there was a little more to that verdict than what people know. No disrespect to you aol.

Si tanto te molesta el que se haya hecho justicia en el caso de esta niña, que sólo contaba con 2 años de edad, te sugiero que cambies de posición con él... Nilton sale de donde se merece estar y tú, de corazón, le haces los poquitos 15 años que le sembraron, por cobarde... porque todavía no me cabe en la mente que un manganzón como él se atreviera a hacerle daño a una beba tan inocente... Sólo espero que en la cárcel sus compañeros de comunidad le hagan pagar los años que se le salvaron, por un pelito, de cumplir los 99 o que fuera a la eternidad, con una inyección letal... como te cae...

Well, if you were foolish enough to hire Jose A. Baez as your attorney, then maybe you sort of deserve your fate. Not to knock a poor soul sitting in prison for a crime he didn't commit but if you enlist the help of a lowlife DUI ambulance chaser to get you off of a Murder One charge then possibly you don't have the wherewithal to make it in today's society. Just my opinion. By the way, Jose Baez is complete and total SCUMBAG!!!!!!!!!!

If Jose Baez is such an incompetent lawyer, then Casey Anthony is not in very good hands, is she???

I do hope the real culprit in both these cases (Anthony and Diaz) will be found and given just punishment.

Go figure Baez screwed up a case. He is a joke of a lawyer. Watching him on TV - saying NOTHING of substance while smirking that arrogant smirk - wow! Why would anyone hire that schmuck? I don't know whether Nilton Diaz is guilty or not, but I can tell you that if I was innocent (or even guilty) of a crime - I certainly wouldn't be hiring Mr. Jose Baez.

Hopefully the jury did the right thing in this case and the right person is prison.

guess Mr Diaz thought before he hired an incompetent attorney. I feel for the guy, but Baez is still inexperience today in the Casey Anthony case.
