Casey Anthony
's attorney Jose Baez must love a challenge -- because he's been retained to help defend the main suspect in a Maryland woman's disappearance in Aruba.

Gary Giordano remains in jail on the Caribbean island ... held as the principal suspect behind the mystery of Robyn Gardner. Giordano has claimed Gardner got swept out to sea when the two went snorkeling on August 2 -- she hasn't been seen since.

We're told Baez is currently in Aruba -- and has already met with Giordano.

Baez will NOT be the lead attorney in the case -- but will consult with Giordano's trial team regarding the forensic evidence in the case.

I guess this means that Geraldo will be saying on his show that this guy was just a totally innocent tourist and there is no reason he should be suspected of anything. He will be OUTRAGED that Aruba is holding this guy in their jail. Sleaze of a feather stick together.

Looks like he really WANTS the title of Most Hated MAN in America since Casey has the Woman title huh? What a piece of diseased meat this s***bag is. After all, he got one murderer off, what's one more?

Sooooo, I feel there is a special spot in hell reserved for Mr. Baez. S***bag.

Any average defense attorney could have gotten Anthony off since there was NO real evidence of a murder. I, as well as everyone else knows that Anthony killed or had something to do with her daughters' death. From what I've read, there is a body to convict Gary Giordano. Again, we all know he did it but there is no proof from what I've read. I only hope that in Aruba, it is easier to convict killers even w/out a body.

I don't think any jury would find another one of Jose's clients not guilty because of the outcry over Casey Anthony's acquittal. And the girl in the pic has a smile like the Joker.

Making his money by defending KILLERS. He wouldn't even have a name if it wasn't for the killer that he defended. Let's hope that the Arubian goverment doesn't tolerate Baez, just thinking of him makes me want to throw up. He should be ashamed of himself he defended someone that killed a child. Let's hope that if something happens to his kids, that a sleazy attorney like him will protect the rights and lie for the the killer .

Hey guys, before you get a divorce and get taken to the cleaners, take your wife to Aruba in a last "ditch" effort to save your relationship! Think of all the poo-tang you'd get being a "widower" as opposed to being a "divorcee"!!!

Keeping it real one post at a time!
