Let's talk about this AFTER the 5dca releases it's decision on the appeal of Casey Marie Anthony vs St of Fl, okay?<quoted text>
Rambler, this is idiotic. Sorry. An appeal isn't about re-investigating the case. It's only about determining if judicial error occurred during the trial.
The appeal was all about whether or not, Casey believed she was under arrest when she made her statements to police without being read her Miranda Rights.
The appellate judge asked the State if she was free to leave, to which the State replied (erroneously in my opinion but Ms. Fryer didn't contradict), that she did leave when she went willingly to police headquarters. The Judge's question was key, and for one reason or another, Ms. Fryer didn't expand upon it when she returned to the podium.( As an aside, I don't think Casey will win her appeal based upon this question, and the question asking about the length of time between the handcuffing/un-handcuffing and actual arrest, and the question about the timing of Casey's handwritten statement).
Regardless of how the judges rule, the civil case will go forward because at issue is Casey's statement to Cindy in a jail visitation,(that she was never shown a pix of that woman down in Kissimmee), and Cindy (based upon what her daughter had told her) telling the media that that woman had not been ruled out as a suspect.
Again, unlike the other civil cases, M&M don't take cases if they don't believe they will win. That's a fact.
"WOFL-Channel 35 titled its Anthony segment: "Will Anthony Get Another Break?" Attorney Hal Uhrig, serving as WOFL's legal analyst, said that if Anthony wins the appeal, the misdemeanor convictions will go away.
What would that mean in a civil trial against Anthony? Uhrig predicted that Anthony's statement about Zenaida Gonzalez might not be introduced if it's determined that the comment was obtained unlawfully. "She may avoid the consequences of a Zenaida Gonzalez case," Uhrig said."
