    JB's responsiblity - Did he know that Caylee was dead

    If JH's testimony is in fact true and the A family knew that Caylee was dead including DC then we can deduct that JB knew also. What is his responsibility as an attorney if he did know this? Doesn't he have to report it. Wasn't one of them (DC or JH) initially working for JB?

    I don't think JB initially knew. I think he knows now though.

    No, he wouldn't have to report it.

    I asked this question on the legal thread, Cheshire, a Louisianna attorney responded.

    A quick summary:

    If Casey told Baez where Caylee was he couldn't report it unless Casey asked him too. If P.I. Casey found out while working for Baez he didn't have to report it either.

    If Cindy or George found out where Caylee was as long as they left her where she was and didn't touch anything they don't have to report it.

    There is more information about it on the legal thread.

    It's my understanding as a lay person, that an officer of the court has to report only eminent damage to another person. In this case, no one was in danger, so no officer of the court was bound to report the location of remains. Baez is an officer of the court.

    So our laws allow a baby to lie decomposing in the woods to protect the mother who murdered her, do I have this right?

    I think he has known from the beginning just as I think her parents knew.

    NO he would not have to report it. Moreover he can still provide an adequate defense as long as he doesn't put her on the stand knowing that she will lie. As a matter of fact, he should provide an adequate defense to avoid appellate issues. We are all entitled to that.

    The burden is on the state to prove their case, it's not for the defense to prove she didn't do it. If the state has the goods there will be a conviction. if they don't have the goods it shouldn't go to court in the first place.

    Remember, many of our criminal laws were actually put into place to protect the innocent, but it doesn't always work that way..

    This is an extremely interesting story for those that are not familiar with Alton Logan

    They worked outward from this point. The smoke screens and undying support, which seemed crazy to us, were only put in place to "show" us all
    that Casey could have NOT been the perp. They could say anything now to spin a reality that Casey was innocent. They could say as crazy as it sounded that a previously suspected dead body smell in the car was now actually old pizza. Oops, my bad....right, Cindy? All planned and scripted. It is all up to the LE and the Prosecution now to prove all points on this case true and untrue.....the A's were and still are just making more work for the LE to disprove......that is why most of us feel that there is an obstruction element in all of this. They knew from the get go and planned their actions accordingly what happened to and where Caylee was. The slight of hand tricks they were using didn't take the focus off of them. What? Looking for Caylee in CA? They couldn't be any further from where she was found. (as I have said before...Like Scott Peterson looking for his dead wife in San Diego....yeah, right) LE/Judge knows this and has tried to keep her in jail in hopes of getting more evidence recorded. Defense got wise and now they haven't been able to publically see Casey for months...as it should be. Forget a private "memorial" meeting with her in jail also. I think they still have to tie up the loose ends of their stories and for now JB has to be the conduit in which it is done now.

    oh yeah, jmho.
    As always, this is my humble opinion.

    Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.
    Conquer the miser with generosity.
    Conquer the liar with truth.

    Bold mine, that's my understanding too.

    Just my personal opinion, but I think he knew because they he was in the process of doing a deal with the police--an accident story to explain Caylee's death and a sweet, short sentence in exchange for the admission and the baby's body. He'd gotten a story from KC that would support the tragic accident farce and she'd given up the location of the body to him. However, they couldn't quite locate the body and cops wouldn't finalize anything without it. I think that's why the Anthony's deteriorated sharply all of a sudden in appearance and attitude. I think they knew about it too. Unfortunately for Baez, I believe the body was found before the deal and that put the kybosh on anything short of 30 years.

    If Caylee was already dead, and therefore no longer in danger, Baez almost certainly had no legal obligation to give up what he knew, but his behaviour in still defending this woman the way he is if he knows she's guilty is a prime example of why I no longer have much faith in our so-called system of justice in the US.

    Unfortunately, yes. The murdered baby gets three bags and heart sticker to rot with and Mommie Dearest gets a herd of lawyers and experts to try to try to get her out of consequences for what she's done. Dead baby's don't have rights but their murdering Mommies do, and lots of 'em. That's what we've come to in American justice! We really shouldn't be all that proud of our legal system, if you ask me.

    Although JB wouldn't have to report KC, what he shouldn't do is the type of things he actually did. He went on TV preaching that Caylee was still out there and alive and that everyone had to do what they could to find her. He made LE look into every tip (which they did), yet complained that they weren't doing anything. He let his client prance around in "Find Caylee" t-shirts when she was out on bail. Basically he made people put in tons of money and work to try to find someone he knew was dead, and gave false hope to the country and Anthony's that she was alive. To me that is extremely low, even for JB.

    If there is any truth to Baez and the A's having knowledge that Caylee was dead prior to her being found, then why, oh why can they all get free rides now, after all the time and resources everyone else poured into Finding this precious baby? If it's true, then I want all those involved in any of the searches, or who donated, Paid Back In Full With any monies that this family comes across!

    I know it is not confirmed as true, but I am sooo angry even to have to consider it! Sorry guys, didn't mean to lose my head at ya.
