    "Second Motion To Preclude Death Procedures for Impermissable Prosecutorial Motives"

    The title is a mouthful isn't it?
    On page 7 of this motion it is stated by the defense:

    "By seeking the death penalty the prosecution sought to financially break the defense and deprive Miss Anthony of her counsel of choice."

    "The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution ensures a criminal defendant the right to counsel...an element of that right is a right to choice of counsel for defendants who are able to afford counsel."

    http://www.cfnews13.com/uploadedFile...%20Motives.pdf

    Excuse me, but isn't KC Anthony indigent? Penniless? How is it, by definition, that she is then one of those "defendants who are able to afford counsel"? If she is indigent, and has approached the court for costs, doesn't this alone make it clear that she is NOT that defendant who is ABLE to afford counsel of her choice? She obviously was NEVER that individual, but through her DIRTY DEAL with ABC was able to secure enough funds to keep this dragged out for almost 2 years and counting. Miss Anthony was ALWAYS indigent. Did she not lie and bounce a check to Jose when she first retained him? Haven't we heard that one? I am completely confused by the stance the defense is taking here.

    Is she indigent or not? And are they actually saying it is the State of Florida's FAULT that she is indigent?

    American Tragedy: The defense of Casey Anthony.

    Juror No. 11 somehow made the journey from Casey is the one on trial to George may be a murderer, based on how George acted on the stand? 3 years of evidence against Casey and he throws George under the bus. Makes sense?
    What evidence indicated that George might be a murderer? Anyone?
    Weren't they to ONLY consider EVIDENCE?
    This NOT GUILTY verdict throws Caylee right back into the swamp she decomposed in. Thanks to this "impartial" jury.

    If you check out the motion, not even carefully, please note the following:

    Judge Strickland's name is on it.
    Page 3 - It is not dated and only contains Andrea Lyon's signature.

    There is no stamp of the Clerk of the Court!

    These motions haven't even been filed yet!

    I'm going through the others now and I'm betting they are in the same condition.

    I'm waiting for them to be posted to another site WHEN THEY ARE FILED!

    Until then, I'm looking for a good discussion of what Ms. Lyon has to say.

    So the allegations in the motion go on to state that the State only sought the death penalty after they discovered that Miss Anthony only had $205,0000.000 and the State knew full well that amount was grossly insufficient to afford a death penatly case.

    So is what they are saying that in cases when a defendant is unable to AFFORD a defense against the death penatly that the State should NOT seek the death penalty for that very reason? They have GOT to be joking! What?

    They go on to say that no evidence was found with the body to justify the imposition of the death penalty? Uh, a little dead baby with duct tape over her AIRWAYS? That would seem to me to be justifiable cause all on its own...

    "Therefore it is clear, that the prosecution decided to seek the death penalty in order to financially break the defense and deprive Miss Anthony of her counsel of choice."

    also pg 7

    It isn't clear to me at ALL "boys". It is in fact NOT clear that such was the case. We have a poster HERE, and attorney, who has stated HERE in one his posts that a death penalty case COULD be defended for the amount that Miss Anthony secured in her dirty little deal with ABC...so there is an opposing opinion out there, likely MANY!

    And it is all a moot point anyway, because the defendant is NOW indigant, and CANNOT afford counsel of choice, and DOES have the option of appointed counsel available to her, just like everyone else who is indigent.

    I just can't get my head around the "only 205,000." I'm sure that is significantly more money than most people accused of similar crimes and facing the death penalty could ever dream of having for their defense. A goodly number of them are probably truly "indigent". GMAB

    I can't wrap my mind around the defense's claim that the prosecution filed the notice to seek the death penalty just because they don't want Casey to have the right to the lawyer she chooses. What the hell about Justice for Caylee? Did it ever cross their minds that was the reason the death penalty was put back on this case?

    How much more self centered can they get? What about Caylee?

    Ok. On page 9 of the motion it gets sticky, because the defense's numbers are not adding up. They state Miss Anthony received $200,000.00 from ABC for some pictures ("a number of photographs") and $5,000.00 from an unnamed source. Ok "boys" where is that $70,000.00 that you TESTIFIED IN COURT about that was ALSO received from Mr. Macusolo? (Spelling wrong I am sure.) And how about that, how much was it again, another $70,000.00??? that was raised by Ms. Lyons? Some money seems to be missing from this equation.

    to bad they refuse to acknowledge that all these defense made delays are the things that keep bringing up the cost....seems to me they claim to want to work "pro-bono" yet complain because there is no money.....

    On page 12:

    "The prosecution initially declined to seek the death penalty, but months later, after finding out exactly how much money Miss Anthony had available to pay for her defense, the prosecution abruptly changed course and filed its notice of Intent to Seek the Death Penalty."

    Hmmm...they filed their notice of intent NOT to seek on DECEMBER 5th, 2009...Now, what ELSE happened, "boys", after that time? Oh yes, they found Caylee Anthonys BONES on Suburban Drive, having been deposited there in June of 2008, wrapped in a blanket that was missing from her home, and thrown away like so much garbage on the side of the road. And oh yes, she had duct tape over her face holding her mandible in place.

    I think this is just purely ridiculous! And I HOPE that the Honorable Judge Blevins makes short work of their game.

    i just gotta ask if we know if there is anymore discovery coming? cuz this just seems like they are trying to deflect again from something. they just never stop do they? what evidence is there that have had these lawyers talking about the penalty phase and mitigating factors. ive never seen a bunch of lawyers, whose actions, speak guilty, louder than this bunch.

    On page 13 the defense uses a case where an attorney was not allowed into the case of the defendant who had chosen HIM, pro hac vice. This defendant was later convicted and the conviction was overturned after it was decided her right to counsel had been denied, in essence. How is THAT the same as THIS again? None of Miss Anthonys attorneys have been denied admission into the case pro hac vice, have they? Apples and oranges "boys".

    This post is from another thread.

    "What if I told you the cost of her defense will not come anywhere near $2 million (more like $100K)."

    So again, how is that the amount of money that this defense has WASTED should be blamed on the state???

    I think according to them, that all of it since the state had the nerve to arrest their little client....I mean we have all heard jb say that she is innocent and defense has also stated they have proof...and then of course we won't see any of this because they want it tried in a court of law.....yepper.....all the states fault....
