Report: Casey Anthony defense team to file for change of venue
7:48 PM EDT, May 3, 2009
The defense team for Casey Anthony will file for a change of venue, hoping to get the high-profile case moved out of Central Florida, according to a broadcast report Sunday evening.
The legal team, headed by Jose Baez, will file the motion today in Orange County Circuit Court, WKMG-Channel 6 is reporting.
Prosecutors have been anticipating such a filing but did not know when it would come and don't know if it will come Monday, said Randy Means, a spokesman for the State Attorney's office.
Anthony is in the Orange County Jail awaiting trial. She is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter, 2-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony, whose remains were discovered in December, five months after Casey reported the girl missing.
OK, maybe I should ask this question here. JB is asking for the trial to be moved to south FL, Miami is what he's hoping for I imagine. If there is a change of location, does the area the trial is moved to need to have the same demographics as the county the crime was committed in ? I am thinking a smaller community would be better as the court schueduling would be less of a hassle...and yeah, I'm praying for a conservative jury...there, I said it.
