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.

Sadly, I doubt Casey is safe anywhere. I would not be surprised if someone shot her and was then hailed as a great hero for avenging the baby's death.

"The last thing we wanna do is put Casey in harm's way."

She didn't feel the same for her daughter, so hell with her.

This guy is totally milking his client for fame. He LOVES being on tv and he is a mediocre lawyer at best.

-
If Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble had a love child, it would look like Baez.

I am personally looking forward to the day - when I can pick up the paper and/or turn on the tv and see that Casey is DEAD! Don't care how - just want to hear that she is DEAD! Also, when she finally does die (from whatever means) I seriously doubt that anyone will shed any tears for her. JMO

Good going Today show.You don't have better topics to report on then having pimp Baez on your show crying that Casey isn't safe in Florida?? OMG, will this creature EVER be held accountable for ANYTHING??? I really can't understand how all these people,( and I am using that term loosely) including the 12 jurors, can sleep at night?

WHO CARES IF SHE'S IN HARMS WAY!! I hope somebody shoots her in the head. That is the only thing in this life that she deserves. It makes me sick to my stomach to think she is expecting special treatment. She is a piece of s**t and deserves nothing. And her lawyer is absolutely disgusting. I really hope that she and him get what is coming to them sooner than later. Oh poor her. F**k her!! Maybe if she wouldn't have killed her poor beautiful baby people wouldn't be quick to want her dead.

Being in harm's way might do her some good, kind of like shock treatments.

I like the way that they keep putting a "Casey Decoy" out there. Then if something should happen - it would happen to an innocent person just because she looks like Casey. And the person who did it would go to jail. Bet she is being closely watched by people.
