    Maybe that's why she started dressing up today. I can see the Prosecutors now. You honor, defense counsel and the truth are strangers...

    How does that old saying go? Something about a man who acts as his own attorney has a fool for a client? 'Nuff said.
    However, I am pissed that my tax dollars continue to be wasted in this circus

    Thank you everyone for being patient with me until I received some sort of clarification. Muzikman supplied me with a link regarding this information.

    The board has been running very slow making it difficult to get back to everyone in a timely manner. Thanks again for all your patience. :)

    If Casey represents herself at trial, will she still be able to ask for a retrial--due to an inadequate defense, when she loses?

    Everyone has the right to pro se representation ... so yes Casey can self-represent ... all she has to do is file a motion with the court with her intent and acknowledgment that she is waiving her right to counsel ... the courts generally use the same standards as they do for determining a person is fit and competent to stand trial to determine if they are fit and competent to represent themselves at trial.

    KC's self-representation with only JB's advisement is the height (and perfect marriage) of his arrogance, and her narcissism. In any case she couldn't be found both "fit and competent to represent herself," and NGBRI. JMO

    And since she would be acting on behalf of herself as lead council, she could probably fill the second chair with Jose. Aww.

    I think she would announce this to bring the circle of attention right back to her. It's a ridicules attempt and I doubt any attorney would advise her that this is a wise move. This is a real-life murder trial that is upcoming, not an episode of Law and Order. She's childish and naive (along with her other disorders) to even make such a statement.

    just when you thought all the hoopla and craziness was over and done with......

    My bets are on what Fox 35 reported and that is she will retain JB and he will assign another attorney to be the lead since he is not experienced.

    I seriously doubt KC will rep herself....

    I heard that ABC was reporting that if Casey represents herself, the state will have to pay for all of the testing of evidence, etc. and also pay for Jose to advise her. So I guess they have figured out how to beat the system.
