There's another side to the delay that may not be helpful to the defense. This is honestly not meant to be snarky but I think a delay will not help Casey in terms of her image with the jury. She has been gaining weight in jail which seems to be pretty common. IMHO she will look substantially (and yes I do mean the double entendre) different when the trial rolls around. Male jurors won't find her as attractive and that will work against the defense. I think an attractive defendant will get more sympathy from a jury in general. I don't think that's right, I just think it is a fact. Look at all the attention she has gotten already & all the male "fans" who send her money. If she looks different when the trial starts the media will no doubt comment on that fact - probably alot. It will become a factor. If I was one of her lawyers I'd really be on her case about making sure she maintains herself while in jail.
