    Lee Anthony's Lawyer Exits Case/Lee's Immunity

    Lee Anthony's Lawyer Exits Case

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- The attorney of Lee Anthony said he is exiting the case as his "representation is no longer necessary."

    Anthony's sister Casey Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of her daughter, Caylee. After eight hours of deposition, Tom Luka said Anthony "spilled it all and nothing was different."

    As a result of his testimony, Luka said Lee Anthony has what's called "use immunity" from prosecution, though he said Anthony never did anything to warrant being charged in connection with the case.

    This is very interesting, to say the least. Do we know if the other two A's are getting immunity, as well?

    Lee seemed to act on directives from C & G, IMO. He went looking for KC prior to the 911 calls on Cindys request, he came to the house that night at Georges request, and he went to get KC's stuff after being told where KC's things were (someone had to tell them where TL lived or he would have gone there earlier at Cindys request). Could be that his immunity is a tactical move.

    If that statement is correct, then LA is going to need representation. Nothing was different? Last we heard of LA giving testimony didn't he say he believed everything his sister says?
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Thanks for the thread

    Hi Pink - just read the articles in WS media links thread regarding this.

    Isn't this big? Lee no longer needs his attorney. "Lee spills all." That may be sensationalized but I wondered what he said?

    I don't blame him if he finally decided to fess up to what he knows and after this is over, try to go on with his altered life.

    WB, Pink~ Thanks for starting this thread or I may have missed it. (Those were the good old days, eh?) I used to keep up with the case, but decided to take a long break after they found Caylee and finally laid her to rest. I pop in from time to time to catch up.

    I think it is news that Lee's attorney resigned, but if Lee has "use immunity" (still have not clarified exactly what that means) then he doesn't need counsel. He can say whatever he wants evidently and not worry about prosecution. It was a stupid move on the SA's part to give any of the A fam any type of immunity, imo.

    I have heard of "limited immunity" which means they can't use what you say against you, but if it leads to evidence then they are free to use the evidence against you (if I have that right). I have to think that "use immunity" is similar.

    I don't think Lee really had anything to spill. He is no different than the rest of the clan in covering up this child's murder and trying to get Casey an acquittal, imo. The defense is going to go after JG with their guns blazing and with the A fam providing the ammo.

    He may have been too busy doing cartwheels on the front lawn of the courthouse to speak to the press.

    Seriously, I haven't heard or seen anything about him speaking afterwards, but I could have missed it.

    Maybe the statement was that he was getting rid of his attorney.

    I just did the same thing and didn't find it either. They must have changed their minds.

    As I delved deeper (before seeing this) into the immunity definition, I began to see that my common way to think of immunity (ie one receives immunity - tells all to include any prior involvement/knowledge and in exchange is free to go on with his life) is not accurate. Like you say, there are different types of immunity. If one is subpeona..(sp) they receive an automatic immunity of sorts but it doesn't necessarily protect them from future prosecution. As is usual with Law related stuff, the explanation gets more confusing as one tries to make sense of it - ha!

    My heart leaped at the thought of Lee deciding enough is enough and telling the truth as it was told to him by KC. Figure the odds.

    The defense better have concrete clad evidence of JG's guilt (like a video tape or something) cuz LE and everybody else has already covered JG. Besides, I thought you couldn't defend someone by accusing somebody else?

    I stuggle to understand "use immunity" too. My understanding is that if one is subpoenaed, then use immunity is automatic. So, What would follow, is CA, GA, & LA will all have "use immunity." Not sure why it keeps getting reported that LA now has "immunity", when it's the same type of "use immunity" that CA would have, and GA also. ?

    Now this is a depo I really want to see. It may even flip this case. If LA admits to something that implicates KC game over.

    Oh,I really hope you are wrong SS.I don't think it protects him from perjury.If he doesn't tell the truth in the depo ,and the SA can prove it,he could still be charged with perjury.It only protects him from using his own words against him if he participated in a cover up,and confesses during the depo.That's my take on it.
    I am hoping LA finally sees the writing on the wall and decided to tell what he knows. It might force KC to plead guilty in exchange for LWOP.
    If LA deleted the files or history in KC's computer the night she was arrested,I think it was because he thought he was protecting KC from embarrassment,not from murder.Maybe he had been told by KC he needed to delete everything to protect Caylee.Who knows. Of course ,as time went on he had to wise up.Maybe he's willing to come forward now.I sure hope so.
    I hope we get to see some transcripts.
    Always ,just my opinion
