I am very disappointed in Mr Baez's' performance today. I was of the opinion that he was a competent trial attorney but he did not show his best side today.

Initially, in the opening statement, he blamed everyone and even implicated a retired police dog in a total conspiracy against Casey. While his explanation of an accidental drowning seemed feasible he invalidated that position by pouncing upon Mr Anthony with apparent false allegations of child abuse. These allegations did not appear credible and the prosecution demolished that defense strategy with great stealth.

If he would have argued that it was simply and accident w/o dragging in the apparent false accusations he would have had my support.

It now appears obvious to me that he has no case, no defense, and has put his client in even more jeopardy. Oh yes, she was shaking her head NO even when the rock bottom issues that referencing her false employment and Zanny were being discussed.

I can no longer believe she is innocent. She Needs to pay for her actions. I do hope Jose steps aside and allows the more seasoned lawyer Chaney to take the lead. I pray for all involved and that justice be served. Presecutor Drane was really at the top of her gane today, obviously a skilled professional.
