    Casey's Defense Wants Sex History Tossed Out

    Posted: 11:11 pm EST December 21, 2010
    Updated: 8:57 am EST December 22, 2010

    ORANGE COUNTY, fla. -- Casey Anthony's defense team doesn't want the jury in her murder trial to hear about Casey's sexual relationships, her alleged lies, or allegations of a habit of stealing. Late Tuesday, Casey's lead defense attorney, Jose Baez, filed six motions asking Chief Judge Belvin Perry to exclude key evidence and testimony in the murder case. The attorneys said certain pieces of evidence are "irrelevant and scandalous."

    Casey Anthony’s defense team filed six new motions Tuesday, all aimed at keeping possible evidence out of the courtroom.
    Anthony’s attorneys said they are focused on testimony about her sexual relationships.

    The defense said it also wants to block testimony from Casey’s father, George Anthony, who at one point said his daughter had a history of lying and stealing.

    Defense wants Casey Anthony's sexual history excluded from trial
    Attorneys file series of motions to block testimony


    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,1012041.story
    Casey Anthony defense attorneys filed a series of motions late Tuesday designed to keep statements and evidence they claim may prejudice their client out of the upcoming first-degree murder trial.

    Among the statements they want blocked from entering the trial: Casey Anthony's sexual relations with Anthony Lazzaro and Anthony Rusciano.

    The Florida Bar summed up the problem regarding Mr. Baez.
    "His overall behavior, they wrote, showed "a total lack of respect for the rights of others and a total lack of respect for the legal system, which is absolutely inconsistent with the character and fitness qualities required of those seeking to be afforded the highest position of trust and confidence recognized by our system of law."

    Casey's Defense Wants Sex History Tossed Out

    Bill Sheaffer Commentary on New Motions: http://www.wftv.com/video/26246223/index.html

    WFTV's legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said it will be a hard sell for the defense team.

    "It's very important to show at the time that Caylee went missing that Casey's conduct was inconsistent with a mother whose child had gone missing," Sheaffer said.

    Casey's parents have made statements stating that their daughter has a history of lying and stealing. But attorneys say Casey's character history has nothing to do with the allegations that she murdered her daughter, Caylee.

    The defense also wants to keep the jury from hearing about a table knife found in Casey's car, and speculation that she almost told Texas Equusearch founder, Tim Miller, where Caylee's body was located.

    Bill Sheaffer, says certain statements from Casey's parents about her past are irrelevant along with that table knife since Caylee wasn't stabbed.

    Prosecutors call for sanctions against the Casey Anthony defense

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,6473260.story

    In a newly filed motion, Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton argues, "the state would contend that the defendant is in deliberate non-compliance with the court's order as to certain of their listed experts and that sanctions to address the non-compliance are necessary."

    Ashton notes that the defense has said expert Dr. Henry Lee "will render opinions on…crime scene analysis, collection and preservation as well as recovery."

    But he says the defense team's inability to summarize so-called "false claims" by crime scene investigators that Lee will rebut "is disingenuous and just plain laughable."

    From: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,7135166.story

    Ashton filed a separate response to the court order to provide information about certain expert witnesses for the prosecution. In the response, Ashton says 36 of the state's 38 expert witnesses have submitted reports or co-signed reports about their testimony and opinions.

    The remaining two who have not are Christine Ballard and David Bogart.

    Ballard is a graduate student working for another expert in the case. Her expertise is forensic anthroplogy. She will testify about the creation of a "video superimposition involving a photograph of Caylee Anthony in life, a photograph of her skull and a photograph of the duct tape found with her skull," the document states.

    Bogart is an expert in radio frequency engineering. He will testify about the "interpretation of movement and usage patterns of the defendant's mobile phone," according to the response.

    Bogart's work is similar to that of another witness, and Ashton said a report will be provided when complete.
