    What do our legal analysts think about the letter CM wrote to Mr. Ashton? Will it help, will it hurt? I am sure you will share your opinions with us as soon as you stop laughing and giggling.

    Can the defense try to plea out at the last minutes after spending all that JAC money?

    Are witnesses listed allowed to disclose they received their subpoena's to testify?
    My posts are my opinion only. Praying for Justice for Caylee Marie!
    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." (Thank you to TWA) Read their opinion here: http://www.floridasupremecourt.org/d...ps/sc95855.pdf

    Help or hurt what? It certainly hurts JB's reputation, assuming there's anything left to hurt. Basically it says, "Please excuse JB for his behavior. He is an idiot, as you know, but I hope he will grow up one day."

    Yes, unless the judge says no!

    "It would seem to me that June 16, 2008 was the last time that the victim was viewed by her grandparents. It became quite evident that from the OS of the Defense that the 16th was a date of great importance and that a so called time line of activities dealing with CA, LA, GA and ICA on the 16th and what, if any, activities took place on the 15th, 16th and 17th of June on 24 hour cycles would have been, at least, of a minimal requirement of review. I take it at some point you had a computer expert look at that data?" HHJP, 6/21/11

    Hey AZ!

    Can you explain in laymans term what a plea deal is? I don't understand what this means? What does it mean for a trial, for the future of the defendant, for justice? I'm a green newb. TIA!!

    A plea deal means that the defendant and the State agree on which charges the defendant will plead guilty to and what the appropriate sentence will be (subject to the approval of the judge). If there were a plea deal, there would be no trial; the defendant would get whatever sentence was agreed upon.

    As for justice? Justice is in the eye of the beholder.

    I have a couple of questions about the Sanction. Is this something that is recorded with the Fla Bar and becomes part of his permanent record, as a disciplinary action taken, or is this simply between HHJP and JB? Will this impact his ability to renew his license? IS that why CM pleads his case with JA?
    Or,is the real reason CM wrote to JA asking him to reconsider cashing the check because this also goes on his record- I saw an answer to another questioner where you said the members of a team can be held collectively responsible for not correcting the person who is at fault.

    The sanction is not part of his record with the Bar, just part of the record of this one case. And unless Florida is different from most other states, he shouldn't ever have to renew his license.

    CM has a "clean record" and, I think, sees sanctions as a bigger deal than JB does. JB is used to barely squeaking by.

    CM was not sanctioned, so this sanction is not "on his record" even for this one case. HHJP certainly had the option of holding the entire team responsible, but he chose not to.

    Bar Complaint by Judge SS

    Will the bar complaint filed by Judge S.S come in during the trial? IIRC He was concerned DC not the call police if he found the body, but to call JB instead. I would think if DC's testimony comes in, the complaint will too. The judge stated, if true, that it was deeply disturbing. It makes me wonder WHY JB would insist on that....also, it is public record.

    Many Thanks to AZ and all the legal minds that contribute on this case.

    No, the bar complaint will not come in at trial. It is not relevant to whether or not Casey committed the murder. At most, it is relevant to whether or not Casey's lawyer thinks or knows she is guilty, which the jury is definitely not permitted to consider.

    Also, although I know JS said he was concerned, my understanding from talking to criminal defense lawyers is that it is widely considered appropriate and ethical for a defense attorney to know where evidence is and view it without reporting it to police, as long as he does not alter it in any way.

    Thank you AZ, for your quick reply. Another question, Will DC's testimony come in stating he was told by JB to not call police? Seem's we haven't heard anything else from DC. This is just annoying to me...I wanna know!

    No, I don't think the part about not calling police will come in, for the same reasons as I mentioned in my last answer.

    What is the difference between contempt and civil contempt? Thanks AZ for all your time on the threads!
