    UPDATE: Kronk's Request To Receive More Tax Dollars Approved

    A meter reader, who found a child's remains that later turned out to be Caylee Anthony's body on December 11, will get more tax dollars to deal with the legal issues that have come up because of the case against Casey Anthony.

    Orange County commissioners approved Roy Kronk's request for an additional $2,500 Tuesday morning, which brings the total of tax dollars spent on his legal fees to at least $12,500.

    However, the commissioners say if Kronk's attorney wants more money in the future, he will have to speak before the board to explain why he needs more cash.

    Orange leaders split on legal costs, strategy in Casey Anthony case
    Leaders approved an additional $2,500 to pay for Roy Kronk's legal fees in the Casey Anthony case.
    11:58 AM EDT, June 30, 2009

    "This case has no limit," said Commissioner Mildred Fernandez. "It's a taxpayer issue."

    The total tab for utility worker Roy Kronk's defense now comes to $15,000. Commissioners said this high-profile case, which now involves a death-penalty trial for the girl's mother Casey Anthony, could drag out and prove terribly costly.

    However, County Mayor Rich Crotty said of Kronk, a county worker, "he's our guy," noting that "he did the right thing" and that his efforts likely saved taxpayers "a ton of money" by ending a costly search effort. The county elected to pay for Kronk to get a lawyer after it was clear Anthony's attorney's and others would want to question him.

    But Commisioner Fred Brummer said he was primarily concerned that Kronk's lawyer was fighting a request to see his client's cell phone records.

    "We should not be trying to suppress the evidence," Brummer said, adding that the scrutiny into a front-line county worker's private affairs was acceptable. "That's a problem with life."

    Orange Leaders Split On Legal Costs, Strategy in Casey Anthony Case
    posted by David Damron on Jun 30, 2009 12:11:00 PM
    <snipped>
    Orange County leaders approved another $2,500 payment this morning to the lawyer of the county worker who discovered the body of Caylee Anthony, but commissioners raised vocal concerns about the escalating costs and legal strategy in the case that has attracted national media scrutiny.

    Crotty agreed, though, that any future payments to Kronk's attorney would need a full board discussion; today's payment was included on a consent agenda, which rarely gets debated. But Crotty objected to the idea of requiring Kronk himself to be present to defend any future requests.

    Some commissioners worried aloud about what message their squabble about legal fees would send to workers and whether it would discourage them from doing the right thing, as they agreed Kronk did when he pushed investigators to check out what he feared could be the body of a missing child.

    "Will they think twice?" Commissioner Scott Boyd said. "I would hope not."

    You'll have to wait for Nancy Grace's two-part special on Cindy Anthony.

    HLN has decided to cover the latest developments in the Michael Jackson saga on Friday and Monday. Grace's show airs at 8 p.m.

    But don't worry: The programs on Anthony will be shown later, HLN says.

    Kronk to get thousands from taxpayers
    Updated: Tuesday, 30 Jun 2009, 5:16 PM EDT
    Published : Tuesday, 30 Jun 2009, 4:55 PM EDT

    The board voted to pay Kronk's lawyer another $2,500.00 to fight a new motion in the case for a total of $15,000.00 so far. That's the new cap for now.

    One of the two 'no' votes came from commissioner Mildred Fernandez. "We need to be very careful on what situations we will keep spending tax payer's money in a case that maybe can last 20 years."

    The other vote against approving the payment came from Fred Brummer. He doesn't care about the final amount... He won't side with Kronk, who's fighting a defense motion to turn over his personal phone records. "We shouldn't be trying to surpress the evidence, it's not about how he gets his money, we shouldn't be trying to surpress the evidence."

    Kronk Finally Collects Reward For Caylee Tip
    Commissioners Agree To Up Former Meter Reader's Legal Fees
    POSTED: 3:42 pm EDT June 29, 2009
    UPDATED: 6:14 pm EDT June 30, 2009
    <snipped>
    Former meter reader Roy Kronk has finally collected his $5,000 CrimeLine reward for his tip relating to the discovery of slain toddler Caylee Anthony's remains.

    The news comes on the same day that, in a split vote, Orange County commissioners approved spending more taxpayer money for Roy Kronk's legal representation.

    Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, who also sits on the CrimeLine board, said Kronk was awarded the money for his tip related to the Anthony case. Former Anthony family spokesman Mark NeJame also gave Kronk $5,000 earlier as a goodwill gesture. Kronk also received a $20,000 photo licensing fee for a nationally televised interview after the discovery.

    Kronk's lawyer, David Evans, said he does not anticipate coming back to ask for thousands more. If he does, Crotty said it will require a full commission discussion like it did Tuesday.

    Casey Anthony: WFTV analyst says meter reader should start paying his attorney's fees
    posted by halboedeker on Jun 30, 2009 6:29:12 PM
    <snipped>
    "At some point in time, that point being now, Mr. Kronk should start assuming his own attorney's fees," WFTV-Channel 9 legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said. Sheaffer noted that it's rare for witnesses to have attorneys.

    WESH-Channel 2's Bob Kealing explained money that Kronk had received from other sources, including $5,000 from attorney Mark NeJame as a goodwill gesture and a $20,000 photo licensing fee from ABC News.

    Fred Brummer told WFTV the latest $2,500 cost wasn't appropriate for taxpayers to pay. Brummer told WESH that the county shouldn't be helping try to suppress cell-phone records.

    But they were in the minority. Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty defended the money, saying Kronk had tried to do the right thing and saved the county a lot of money by finding the toddler. Crotty told WFTV that the county had "kind of a corporate ethic to take care of our own."
