    Exceptions to double jeopardy in the U.S. (from wikipedia):

    If the earlier trial is proven to be a fraud or scam, double jeopardy will not prohibit a new trial. In the case of Harry Aleman[31] an appeals court ruled that a man who bribed his trial judge and was acquitted of murder was allowed to be tried again because his bribe prevented his first trial from actually putting him in jeopardy.

    Double jeopardy is also not implicated for separate offenses or in separate jurisdictions arising from the same act. For example, in United States v. Felix 503 U.S. 378 (1992), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled: "a[n]...offense and a conspiracy to commit that offense are not the same offense for double jeopardy purposes."[32][33]

    I would like juror #11 investigated. I would not be surprised if JB got a hold of him. I'm hoping that if we are suspicious, so is the state.

    But it wasn't proved to be a lie; JB saying it does not equal Casey lying to the FBI about it. Saying you believe or feel something isn't the same as direct lying, IMO.

    I'm pretty sure practically everybody in the Department of Justice is aware of Casey's not-guilty verdict. It would be cool if they decided to prosecute her for something. :cool: It's possible, though, that she's the least of their problems.

    That's what the federal trial would decide -- is she guilty of lying to them or isn't she?

    A defense attorney represents the defendant. In other words, the attorney is speaking for the defendant. So, whatever JB says Casey has agreed with. JB said that Caylee was dead all along. Everything Casey said or alluded to inferring that Caylee was alive would then be considered a lie. JMO.

    Thank you. I really think this could hold water as a lie, because JB says Caylee never was missing. She was dead all along, and KC knew it. So for KC to tell an FBI agent that she feels in her gut Caylee is alive, that's purposely misleading in the course of a serious missing persons investigation. In fact, had she told the truth, the investigation would have completely changed course.

    I just thought about something else. Universal could ask the feds to step in for the email fraud. Remember when KC set up that phony email from a phony boss at Universal?

    (Hey, I'm leaving no stone unturned! Hope the FBI is too.)

    I'm heading to Disneyworld in December. If they haven't made a move yet, I'll make some suggestions to them...!

    The police officers that beat up Rodney King were tried twice. Once by the county then by the Government. The county found them not guilty and a few received sentences when the Government tried them.

    Yes, it's unlikely but still possible, haven't there been constitutional amendments previously?

    Just to be clear, it wasn't simply a matter of Billy Dunlop "confessing" to the crime - he went around town "boasting" about it and how he got away with murder, it was that aspect that so incensed people. There's a good documentary on youtube about the case. I'll link it if anyone is interested.

    You know what I would rather see? I would rather see laws changed to where if the evidence points to guilt, it be allowed in, no matter how prejudicial it is. I have NEVER understood how certain evidence can not be allowed in because primarily it shows too much how guilty someone is. WTF anyway? It is what it is. If they have done things that make it obvious they are guilty it needs to be allowed. Instead, the defense can get away with bringing in things that they have absolutely no proof of what-so-ever but if something points "too much" towards guilt it isn't allowed in.

    Never have understood that and most likely, never will.

    This is how Gabe Watson was able to be extradited from Australia and then charged in Alabama - the State are alleging he conspired to kill his wife on American soil then took her to Australia to kill her whilst on their honeymoon.

    Bill S. said today that there weren't any state lines crossed with wires, mail, etc...which would be FBI jurisdiction.

    Yes, there has been 17 constitutional amendments since the Bill of Rights was created. The earliest was in 1795, and the most recent was one in 1992.

    These are the three most recent amendments:

    1967: Changes details of presidential succession, provides for temporary removal of president, and provides for replacement of the vice president.

    1971: Prohibits the federal government and the states from forbidding any citizen of age 18 or greater to vote on account of their age

    1992: Limits congressional pay raises

    The federal government indicted them for a civil rights violation because as police officers they were acting on behalf of the government. Casey wasn't acting for the government when she killed her daughter.
