    2015.10.20 Elizabeth Parker - Defense Attorney representing CWW

    Sievers suspect hires Palm Beach defense lawyer Elizabeth Parker

    A Missouri man accused in the death of Bonita Springs doctor Teresa Sievers has hired a defense lawyer out of Palm Beach County.

    Attorney Elizabeth Parker will be representing Curtis “Wayne” Wright, who faces a charge of second-degree murder. Parker filed a notice of appearance with the Lee County clerk’s office Monday.

    On Tuesday, Parker filed a waiver of arraignment, meaning Wright likely won't appear in court for his scheduled arraignment on Nov. 16. Parker also filed a written plea of not guilty, which is typical in criminal cases.

    Parker also filed paperwork Tuesday to begin the evidence-sharing process between the prosecution and the defense known as discovery. Parker is requesting the names and address of witnesses and any statements they may have provided to law enforcement, as well as documents relating to electronic surveillance and searches.

    Document: Read the notice of intent to participate in discovery.

    Reached at her office, Parker declined to comment on any of the specifics of the case against Wright.

    Parker began her law career as a prosecutor in Palm Beach County in 1998. By the time she left the State Attorney’s Office in 2011, she had risen to the position of Chief Assistant State Attorney.

    Parker is now a partner at Kaplan, Sconzo and Parker in Palm Beach Gardens.

    Wright, 47, remains jailed in Lee County without bond. Few details have been released about the killing, and a judge has put a seal on all documents pertaining to the case.

    You beat me to it! However, I recall Parker also being involved as prosecutor in the Dippolito case! That is one strange coincidence here. I had to look it up to refresh my memory. Parker actually wrote a book about it as mentioned on her website. Dalia Dippolito got 20 years for trying to hire a hitman to kill her husband. An informant acted under cover as "hitman" for hire. They even staged the crime scene later and got her! That was quite the case. Dippolito' s defense was, she had been set up.. well, it didn't work.

    Wow. I wonder what she charges.

    I wonder if CWW thinks he is going to be appealing to a female attorney?

    Once when I was on jury duty, a guy picked all female jury members. I think he thought he was so cute. He wasn't and it did not work

    I believe that there has been so many cases of convictions set aside or new trials granted from convicts stating that the public defenders assigned were ineffective, that a lot of cases these days are allowing defendants to select an attorney of their choosing. When their funds are exhausted the state picks up the bill. It prevents the cost of a new trial or appeals. This is not for run of the mill minor charges, but those such as these. Also many jurisdictions do not keep the stable of public defenders of quality like they used to. The State agrees to pay an hourly rate for representation. Some attorneys agree to it as it is steady income that will pay for maybe years to come. Plus it is free advertising for the future cases.

    Dalia Dippolito's new attorneys regularly appear on national TV shows
    Dalia Dippolito is turning to two high-profile lawyers for her high-profile murder-for-hire retrial.

    Where on earth did CWW get the funds to pay for a private defense counsel? Shocking imo.

    CWW must have access to some serious cash. I realllllly want to know where he got that kind of money. Legally? How? Hinkey meter rising. I think CWW may have chosen Parker because she knows how prosecutors will present this type of case because she was one, and she prosecuted someone in a similar crime. She has good experience from the other side that CWW might think will help him. I hope the DA's case is strong as steel.
    When you see a cloud with no silver lining, paint your own.

    It's early. He may run out of money and end up with a public defender. Chase Merritt and I believe Jesse Matthew, as examples, started out with private attorneys and very quickly switched to public defenders.

    If CWW has enough funds to pay for a high profile defense atty and MS had a GFM page, can't pay his office rent, which one had the motivation to kill for money, if indeed that is the motive? Points straight to MS, IMO. I suppose my mind doesn't think like a murderer (I hope!) so I guess there is a likely hood of some elaborate scam going on but like some of you here, I think it all boils down to money. MS wanted/needed money and his "genius" bro obliged in helping him. I just wonder IF MS is implicated, will he use a mega-buck personal criminal defense atty? Maybe his parents will pay for it (mortgage house etc) but on the face of things it looks like he will need the counsel of the public defender. Just speculation.

    Is the Attorney he has chosen DP qualified? I realize it's early but just wondering.
