Polk County works...straight shot down I-4, I haven't been called for jury duty in while either...
I think the change of venue will be denied. The state has done nothing to taint the juror pool. JB, CA, and the entire Casey skeem-team are solely responsible for the amount of attention this case has garnered. I believe Judge Strickland is already so sick of JB and his antics, making a mockery of his court room and the legal system, that he will with great pleasure, deny the request.
Anyone have any idea when the announcement might be made? Is there like a time frame for Judge Strickland to rule on this matter? TIA
This is so true shgrbkr. I live in NW Florida and while most everyone here has heard of this case, most of the people I associate with or talk to know very few details! Local media doesn't cover this case at all anymore. The only reason I'm up to date on the details is because I'm a WS member, watch JVM and NG. I've found that most people who aren't obsessed with or have an interest in true crime stories really don't pay much attention to it. They're busy doing other things (like enjoying lfe - lol). My family and most of my friends think I'm a nut-job for following this case so closely! I am usually a total beach bum, but I sat on my fat butt in front of the t.v. and was on the puter the entire summer last year because of this whole saga. It's like a soap opera! Just when you think no more clowns could possibly step out of the clown car another pile of 'em unload!
I think a COV will be granted. Actually I'm prolly in the minority here, but I believe it should be moved out of Orlando. Yes, it will cost tax payers more, but if convicted couldn't KC claim later that she didn't get a fair trial because of the daily news coverage in the Orlando newspapers and broadcasts and file an appeal to have her conviction over turned for a new trial? Trying her a second time would be more costly. I'm just thinking out loud here -I'm barely even awake yet. My thoughts on this may change later when I wake up a bit!
uh yeah ok good luck with finding anyone who has not heard of this circus. It does not matter where they go, everyone has heard about it. JB and the A's don't make it any easier by constantly running their mouth.
I live in central Virginia and almost nobody here has heard of it, and if they have, their familiarity is a vague "is that the little girl that went missing in Florida?" Remember, we sleuths are a niche market.
OMG I just realized that. HE is one of the main reasons for the supposed need for the change of venue. The pros has kept their mouths shut - why can't he? He's feeding the problem not helping it.
Thanks for the wisdom!
If a change of venue is granted, it will cost the state a fortune! If moved out of central Florida to either northern or southern Florida, the state will have to pay transportation costs, and the cost of hotel accommodations for each witness that testifies.
A change of venue will also likely delay the trial, as the jurisdiction to which the trial is moved to will have to accommodate it into their trial schedule, which may already be full.
