Could State Help Pay For Anthony's Defense?
It's Possible, Orlando Attorney Tells WESH

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The cost of defending Casey Anthony could be in the millions, and taxpayers could foot some of the bill.
An Orlando criminal defense lawyer said Thursday this is the only way attorney Jose Baez will be able to hire the experts necessary to defend Anthony in what will be an expensive death penalty case.
"I think the taxpayers are going to get stuck with paying for his costs," Richard Hornsby said.
Hornsby said Baez has a legal right to argue the state should pay for a chunk of Anthony's defense fees.
Florida's Justice Administrative Commission has a set expert witness fee schedule. Defense experts would have to accept a set fee, do it for free or leave the so-called dream team that Baez has been assembling.
For this to happen, the court would have to declare Anthony indigent. Baez would have to disclose his current funding sources and sign a 20 page contract agreeing to the commission's guidelines.
