    Access to Casey's Car - Defense Strategy?

    CASEY'S ATTORNEY TO START QUESTIONING WITNESSES

    Casey Anthony's defense attorney is going to start questioning his first prosecution witnesses in the case next Thursday. Among those taking the stand is an employee at the Amscot on Goldenrod and Highway 50 where Casey abandoned her car in late June, employees from Johnson's Wrecker Service, the company that towed the car from the Amscot, and Casey's ex-boyfriend Tony Lazzaro.

    What do they all have in common? They all had access to Casey's car.

    I was just going to start a thread on this but you beat me to it!

    So is this going to be the defense JB is working on? Is he admitting that there was a dead body in the car but Casey didn't do it? I saw this one coming back when Cindy made the statement "maybe the tow people put a body in the car". (not quite her words but something along those lines.)

    He's going for "reasonable doubt". Someone else killed Calyee and put her in her mom's trunk. Don't think so.

    How does this work? How do they "question" witnesses? Do witnesses have to answer or can they refuse? Can someone please explain.

    Sounds like the new lawyer is getting on the ball. It's about the only defensive argument that takes into account the forensic evidence from the car because IMO I don't think they have a chance of disputing it scientifically.

    You can be called in to give a deposition. You can have your lawyer present if you want. You are usually sworn in beforehand. I believe you can be supeanaed.

    Yes, I believe you are right on that. This should get interesting.

    Absolutely! They have to know what the witnesses are going to say in order to build their case. I believe they're just doing what Strickland advised them to do.

    They will be called for a deposition. Their attorney can and should be present. It is Baez chance to ask questions of the witnesses that have already been questioned by the other side. You are required to answer the questions, if you don't they can go in front of a judge, if that judge feels that you don't have a reasonable justification for not answering he can order you to, if you still refuse they can charge you with contempt.

    This of course does not apply to 5th amendment issues or privileged information.

    In this state the DA's office attorney can represent a prosecution witness in depositions.

    I am sure they will be present! I think I read that TL has an attorney, not sure about the rest.

    I agree--- but I do have to say , as much as I believe (most times) Caylee is no longer with us--

    I still, to this day--wonder somewhere in the back of my brain " what if? "

    ...and while I had one of those moments the other nite-It dawned on me..."That is what reasonable doubt" IS.....

    so ---I agree--there is certainly some method to all the maddness....JMHO!

    Makes sense. You would want someone intimately familiar with the case in order to keep the line of questioning on track.
