That's the quick answer.. But fwiw, I do not feel we have a thing to worry about here. The principals are playing beat the clock against LE finding Caylee's remains, and the nervousness of the person who helped her, and I am hearing that person is very, very nervous. To quote a friend, "we are on God's Time", we will get her.
Just the FACTS Ma'am. Who, what, when, where, why, and how.
Also, murder as a Federal Offense. That is usually when a government official is involved and or crossing state lines. Am I correct?
They are using sec 775.021 of the Florida statutes, as cited in this 2008 double jeopardy case.http://www.miami-criminal-lawyer.net...te-v-rothwell/
to stretch the principles of double jep.
It's just an argument for atty JB to make. I doubt it would fly.
I'm curious....If I was sentenced for injuring someone while DUI, and later that person died as a result of the injuries they sustained, I could not be charged separately for causing their death?
No female, no matter how drunk, drugged, or provocatively dressed they may be, deserves to be ogled, harrassed, raped, or murdered. So stop the ignorant insinuations.
Lore, Florida Courts have been allowing the prosecution in that circumstance, by using the arguments that there are additional elements in the crime later charged. jmo
I also wonder if Federal charges can be filed for her.
Baez is building a defense on charges that she has not been charged with yet.
There is NO such thing as the perfect crime. Every criminal makes at least 25 mistakes. We already have her nailed on some of them - imappropriate behavior. Also, if they try to claim someone else did it, I am sure the police have fingerprinted her car. Knowing Casey, however, I wouldn't put it past her to blame Cindy for this. I wonder how her parents will feel when that happens.
AND prior bad acts CAN be used in sentencing, including juvenile records so if she has anythning in her past, it will lengthen her sentence.
Also, if she is back in a cell to ponder it, anyone else involved has no access, and she would not know what was going on outside if such person was compelled to come forward..
I'm content to sit out that Justice will be served here, I believe that. I would LIKE to believe that also means finding Caylee.
If I were prosecuting Casey, and her neglect trial came around , and the murder investigation was still ongoing (even though it was definitely going to result in a charge, it needs more time)
and I had major concerns and fears that trying the Neglect charge would cause me to later sacrifice the murder charge,
I would dismiss the neglect charge. That kills that argument.
Please excuse me if I have replied to a post and can no longer find that thread. WS is wonderful all around and I don't want anyone to think I am being rude.. I forget what thread I post on at times.
