Christina Baez, speaking on behalf of her father, defense attorney Jose Baez, said the Anthonys want to bond their 22-year-old daughter out of jail as soon as possible, but the bail amount is "outrageous."
I am curious to ask the legal professionals out there: is it normal for a defense attorney to have his daughter out there as his press secretary? What's next....having his mother-in-law set court dates?

She works in her fathers office but I did think it was odd he would have her commenting on his behalf.

She's a college student, so I guess father thinks she is an appropriate spokesperson.

A little girl is missing and the lawyer is building a circus around the situation. Very sad.

Another day passes and still no information from the family - wasn't that why they wanted Casey out so she could cooperate with police and wasn't the brother going to be able to get it out of her.

Who does grandpa think he's kidding? He knows what his daughter did, but his primary concern is to protect HIS little princess. And the attorney thinks this is the OJ trial for him. Cha ching!

Hey grandpa...here's a tip. Call the mom and ask her. She's the only one who knows what she did with your granddaughter. Face reality.

This is DUMB. If Casey had nothing to do with her MISSING CHILD, she wouldn't be in jail. To say "Let her out and she'll tell" is even more DUMBER.
WATERBOARD Casey and Cindy. AND their DUMB LAWYER.

They should be more interested in their on flesh and blood than the Law.

Their stories sure does smells like Cindys, so called, Rotten Pizza.

Look,

she knows what happened to that little girl. She did something, or she knows who did. She has lied to police about everything.

Her lawyer is trying to spin things around and try to make her seem like the innocent party

You know what? If you'd write a book with such a messed up cast of characters, I'm betting most publishers would reject it on the grounds it was too unbelievable! And now the lawyers' daughter is out there talking? Strange....

Cristina:

You are right, the bond is outrageous. And as an aspiring attorney, let this be a lesson to you....when you come to court unprepared this is what happens to your client. You see, the bond hearing turned into a 'probable cause' hearing and your dad got sandbagged. I think you can either be the media liaison, or you can be a litigator, but I'm not sure any attorney can do both.
Also Cristina, if you watch the hearing you will see that the attempted blackmail of the court was where your dad lost this case. The proposition that "let her out and she will help, keep her in and she won't" just didn't fly. In fact, I would say that it pretty much enraged the judge.
Put the blame where it belongs dear; ineffective assistance of counsel. And frankly, if I were the client I would be reading your entire firm the riot act.

As much as I want this little girl to be alive and safe, I think using a telemarketing company to spam phone calls to people's houses is kind of rude. Everyone knows your granddaughter is missing. You don't have spam people with calls about it. Everyone gets the news one way or the the other. Either from the internet, t.v., or radio.

Also, does he know people on the "do not call list" won't be getting this message. If that's the case, I think the majority of central floridians won't be getting this call.

How can defense attorneys even sleep at night??? You actually think that the bond for this is outrageous?????

What is outrageous is this POS mother who refuses to say what she did with a defenseless 2 year old child? If you had any morals at all, you would be seeking to defend this child, not the mother!

All you bottomfeeding defense lawyers care about is getting guilty people free and getting rich from it, you don't care about society, or obviously this 2 year old child.

It would be perfect karma if one day, one of the guilty people that you "get off" so they can go back out and hurt other people, come back and rape, kill, you or someone in your family. Perfect karma.

Did you have a "calling" that led you to want to do your part to set criminals free to hurt other people?
