Casey Anthony's Lawyer

SHE'S NOT SAFE IN FLORIDA

8/3/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

080311_jose_baez_videoCasey Anthony's lawyer says Anthony could be in danger if she's required to return to Florida this week to meet with a probation officer -- telling Matt Lauer, "The last thing we wanna do is put Casey in harm's way."

Attorney Jose Baez appeared on "Today" this morning ... and explained, "We have an issue of safety." He was not specific about the potential threat.

Earlier this week, Judge Stan Strickland ordered Anthony back to Orlando to begin probation for a 2010 check fraud conviction. Baez believes the judge is exceeding his authority by requiring Anthony to return to Florida because the Department of Corrections already certified that she completed her probation.

But around the same time Baez appeared on "Today" -- Judge Strickland officially recused himself from the case ... but did not give a reason for his decision to step down. 

No word on who will replace Strickland --or if that person will enforce his order requiring Casey to return to Florida.

That heffa is not going to be safe in any state she is recognized in. I’m not a violent person, but I would so smash her face in.

We should be concerned about the safety of this pos? Where is the concern for Justice for Caylee? Baez is a s***bag only looking to make a name for himself and a few million bucks. And Casey incognito? Spotted that pos in disguise a mile away! You can't hide murderer! Someone just crazy enough will take you out and we will have justice for Caylee...a sweet little girl who you murdered for your own selfish and demented gain...we all know the truth! Now suck it up and face the music! You STOLE those checks and knowingly wrote them out stealing the goods that were purchased...if I were the stores in Ohio whereyou have been seen visiting...I'd be checking your pockets! Once a thief always a thief...oh and that goes for the murder of your daughter...MURDERER! Come back to Florida and face the music...chicken ****!

No... the LAST thing you want to do is step on a lego in the dark. Putting Casey Anthony in harms way ranks up there with wanting to shower after a workout, running over the cast of Jersey Shore with a combine or breaking the AC at Fox News.

all you people are ignoant and don't understand the law or constitution. She had her day in court. The PROSECUTER DID NOT PROVE ANYTHING except that she was Caylee's mother. I would never pretend to know what happened as I was not there, just like you. I agreed with the jury's decision and blame Nancy Grace [i hate thet bitch} and HLN for convincing the puplic to believe she'd be on death row. The laugh is on them and you for buying into that. Shows you can't think on your own and rely on your TV shows to believe their BS so that gets their ratings up and those anchors make million. So, leave the young woman alone and stop with your lame death threats. You kill her you'll spend the rest of your life in prison

Bleh!    

If only Caylee had been given such protection. Oh wait, that's right, God gave her a 'mother' for that job and she was/is responsible.
