UPDATED: Judge Denies 2 Casey Anthony Defense Motions
Posted: 2:13 pm EST December 16, 2009
Updated: 6:34 pm EST December 16, 2009
This time, Judge Stan Strickland denied defense motions without any kind of explanation. He refused to drop nine of the charges Casey faces for stealing and cashing her best friend's checks and refused to order the destruction of jail videos, which are public records.
“The less merit a judge finds in a motion, the more likely a judge is just going to deny it without explanation,” WFTV legal expert Bill Sheaffer said.
“It's not his job as a trial judge and he's not gonna do it,” Sheaffer said.
The judge has yet to rule on the death penalty and whether the Anthonys can visit without jail cameras.

The first motion claimed that Anthony's multiple check fraud charges in which she is accused of pilfering money from friend, Amy Huzienga, should be categorized as double jeopardy. That motion was denied.
Also denied was a motion to destroy all jailhouse interviews involving Casey Anthony and her family.
A protective order was granted for an interview involving EquuSearch volunteer Joe Jordan.

Judge Issues 3 Rulings In Anthony Case
POSTED: Wednesday, December 16, 2009
UPDATED: 2:46 pm EST December 16, 2009
Orange County Circuit Judge Stan Strickland denied the motion filed by Anthony's defense team asking that several of the check fraud counts against her be dismissed because, they claimed, the charges constituted double jeopardy. He also denied a request to have the Orange County Jail destroy videos of family visits to Anthony.
Strickland also ruled that an audiotape secretly made Joe Jordan, a Texas EquuSearch volunteer, made during an interview with an Anthony defense investigator not be used or disclosed.
The state will seek the death penalty if Anthony is found guilty, although Strickland has yet to rule on the defense team's motion to have the death penalty option removed.

UPDATED: Judge Denies Motions In Casey Case

Judge Stan Strickland signed three orders Wednesday, and it’s not good news for the defense.
Video of jail visits with Casey’s family will not be destroyed, and nine charges related to the check fraud case will not be thrown out.
We are still waiting for the judge to rule on the defense motion asking to take the death penalty off the table.
The final order prevents an audio recording with a former EquuSearch volunteer from being made public.

Casey Anthony: Defense team suffers setbacks

WESH’s Bob Kealing explained that Strickland denied the defense’s motion that nine of 13 check-fraud charges should be dismissed because they constituted double jeopardy. The result: Anthony will face trial Jan. 25 on all 13 counts.
Strickland also denied the defense’s motion that tapes of Anthony’s family visits be destroyed. But the judge hasn’t decided whether future tapes of any Anthony family visits might be blocked.
Kealing said that Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez had said Friday that he expected not to win on the motions. “And he was right,” Kealing added.
