    Link: Jose Baez: el hombre, tras Casey Anthony

    Clicking on the video opens it in a new, larger window. The interview is in Spanish, with English subtitles.

    Running the Spanish text from the article through Google Translate produced this:

    Jose Baez speaks attorney for Terra Casey Anthony

    By Erika Montoya

    (In an exclusive interview half in the United States, on June 19 from his home in Orlando, attorney Jose Baez gave Terra.com unique statements that can be viewed in its entirety in the video.)

    Jose Angel Baez was born in Puerto Rico in 1969. Once stated to the press, who grew up in the Bronx and in South Florida with his mother.

    He retired from Homestead High School in ninth grade. He was a father at 17 and joined the Navy in 1986. By 1997, graduated from St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami.

    Baez took 8 years to establish as a defense lawyer: Only until 2005 he was awarded the right to belong to the Bar of Florida (Florida Bar Association) essential distinction to practice in any state of the American union.

    Hey Bullwinkle--good find! However, due to copyright laws we can only post 10% or less of the entire text of an article. I'm sure our fellow sleuthers will be intrepid enough to do the Google translation for themselves too, so that we can discuss. ;)

    From the interview:

    Q: This might be a little delicate, but what makes you believe that Casey Anthony is innocent?

    A: I think I know the facts of this case better than anybody. My client has pleaded not guilty to these charges. This is why we're defending her. I believe in my clients. I trust them. If not, I won't work with them.

    I like how his eyes dart down twice when answering if he believes that ICA is guilty.

    He thinks he knows the facts of this case better than anybody? :floorlaugh:

    Oh my... he must not read here. After his complaining that they gave him the whole hard drive and not the specific parts for June 16... when so many here know the details of June 16 already... :innocent:

    He retired from Homestead High School in ninth grade

    Translation: HS drop out. Why does that not surprise me?

    Thank you for sharing this, Bullwinkle....

    Notice that the question he was asked was, "What makes you believe that Casey is innocent" but he doesn't really answer it.

    He states that she has pleaded not guilty. Well, yes, that is true.

    He declares that he knows the facts of this case better than anybody.

    He states that the reason they are defending her is because she pleaded not guilty to the charges.

    He claims to believe in his clients and trusts "them".

    Yet, he never answers the question. Never even says that he thinks she is innocent, let alone why.

    Oh, Mock Juror. There are so many things that will not surprise you, when they are finally revealed to you, some day in the increasingly-distant future... ;)

    In all honesty, JB's story has so many of the trimmings of an archetypal "rags to riches" story. And they are mixed in with so many details of the archetypal Greek tragedy, particularly the hubris. I know many folks suspect that our interest in this case is somehow prurient or sensationalistic. Perhaps that's part of it. But this story is also playing out age-old motifs in a current setting, and illustrating themes that have fascinated the human mind for thousands and thousands of years.

    Question to Baez: What what makes you so sure you know the facts of this case better than anybody?
    Beaz Answer: Well, if you'll go back and look at my answer I didn't say that I was "sure" that I do, I said that I "think" I do. " (flashback of his statement in court the other day that his opening statement didn't give an exact time of death on the 16th) IMO :crazy:

    Well, now who is surprised that he totally skipped over what he did between graduating law school and beginning to practice law. He acts as though there was no time lapse at all. What happened to the bikini stores, and sheesh what else was it? Well, whatever it was, he definitely was not practicing law between graduating and getting admitted into the bar. I guess he forgot about the other interview(s) he has given. IMO
