UPDATED: Details Of Anthony Jail Friendship Surface
Inmate Alleges Anthony Briefly Given Pair Of Scissors
POSTED: Wednesday, April 7, 2010
UPDATED: 9:09 am EDT April 8, 2010
Was Casey Anthony allowed to spend the night with another inmate? And was she given a pair of scissors behind bars?
Using a hand-drawn map of the Orange County Jail's women's dorm, inmate Robyn Adams showed investigators where she was housed -- in cell 19 upstairs. She said Casey Anthony was locked up downstairs in cell 12.
At first, the two women would communicate with each other with flashed hand signals across a room, Adams said. But when corrections officers caught on, Adams was moved to a different cell so the two inmates could no longer see each other, Adams said. That's when Anthony first started writing letters, which she would stuff between the pages of a book titled, "Let's Do Away With August," Adams said.
Meanwhile, new allegations are surfacing that Anthony attorney Jose Baez also broke jail rules by secretly passing messages to his client.
In her letters, Casey Anthony wrote, "My attorney is keeping tabs on my family for me, and exchanging letters between us." In another letter, Anthony claims her attorney is trying to "smuggle" in some word search puzzles. Baez has declined comment since the letters were released. Outside the attorney's entrance at the jail, a sign clearly states that "Attorneys are not authorized to convey to an inmate any written communication of a personal nature."

Casey Anthony jailhouse letters started with a wave

Their relationship started as a simple one. Two isolated women, desperate for some type of communication with another, exchanged a wave, a hand signal.
But in the months that Casey Anthony and Robyn Adams both spent in the Orange County Jail, a friendship developed, one that involved secret, hours-long chats and extensive letter writing.
When the remains of Anthony's 2-year-old daughter Caylee Marie were found in woods near the family's east Orange County home in December 2008, Adams shared a private moment with her friend through a food slot in Anthony's cell door:
"I was holding her hand and she was crying ... You could tell that she had been crying for a long time," Adams recalled during an interview with state investigators last month.
FOX 35 attempts to track down jail guard in Anthony case

Adams told investigators that, on one occasion, Hernandez even allowed her to go inside Casey’s cell for a visit. Hernandez denies that, but she did say that, with a supervisor’s permission, she allowed Casey Anthony to cut Adams’ bangs.
In an investigative summary, an FDLE special agent wrote, "it is the opinion of this author that Hernandez was less than truthful in this interview," noting that Hernandez provided several "inconsistent statements."
A FOX 35 news crew received an explosive response from a woman believed to be Hernandez when we went digging for answers at Hernandez's home. "You have three seconds to get off my property!" yelled a woman behind a door.
Officer Hernandez has been relieved from her duty, with pay, and is being administratively transferred to a day shift. Although the reasons have not been released, we do know that she had been assigned to the female detention center before being moved to booking and release.
Hernandez has been employed by the Department of Corrections since January of 2008.

Casey Anthony: Judge grants prosecution’s request for transcript of hearing; corrections officer tells reporter to get lost

WESH-Channel 2 anchor Jason Guy said the August hearing was among the more memorable ones in the case. “At that time, the defense also announced they were waiving their claim that the group Texas EquuSearch was acting as a so-called agent of the state,” Guy said. “This week [defense attorney] Jose Baez appeared to contradict that position and use it in his argument to gain access to records from the volunteer search group.”
So what does corrections officer Silvia Hernandez have to say? Robyn Adams, a former inmate at the Orange County Jail, has said that she befriended Anthony with help from Hernandez.

It’s perhaps a rare look inside the mind of Casey Anthony, as interpreted by a jail pen pal.
FOX 35 has obtained audio recordings in which inmate Robyn Adams talks to family and friends from behind bars about Anthony and conversations with the 24 year old accused of murdering her daughter, Caylee Marie.
There are roughly 800 calls recorded between Adams and others, dating back to July of 2008. It's what happened after Casey Anthony was booked in the orange county jail that will have you talking.
