Casey Anthony's Attorney

Kudos to Amanda Knox's Parents

For Supporting Her

10/10/2011 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda Knox
Casey Anthony and Amanda Knox have a lot in common -- they were both recently freed from jail, they're both big celebrities now and they're both hot. What they don't have in common ... supportive parents, at least according to Casey Anthony's lawyer.

Jose Baez tells TMZ he was very happy for Amanda Knox and her family when the verdict was overturned. Baez says he watched the verdict and it was " a very surreal moment for me because I remembered being in that situation -- where a young woman's life hung in the balance -- and in a split second, her life was given back to her."

Baez says he felt Amanda's family played a key role in things, saying they should "be applauded" for sticking with her through the entire process -- unlike Casey's parents, who did not support her and instead, he feels, "hurt her case."

In the end, Baez says they're just a pair of "all-American girls."

Wow! I opened this up today and couldn't believe that he is comparing Casey and her family to Amanda Knox and her family. There is no comparison. Everyone knows that Casey killed her daughter and had that video been entered into evidence (where she broke down when they found her remains - when she was not even told who it was and had not done so previously when hearing other news), then she would have been convicted. Casey and her mother are both habitual liars and Mr. Baez believes his own bull**** which a lot of people (particularly defense lawyers) do. God Bless America and Amanda Knox and her family and Casey will be held accountable at some point. Karma baby.

Jose Baez is a freak who defends people who have done something VERY wrong.

Casey? An all-American girl? I certainly hope she is not the mark people in the world judge our people by. Not at all does she fit THAT bill. Baez is crazy to even suggest it! But he is crazy anyway! As far as comparing Amanda with Casey, I think Amanda should sue...I would. Casey parents knew she was guilty, but still supported her...even now this is true of her mother. Amanda's parents knew she was innocent, and had no trouble standing behind their daughter. The difference is one is guilty, the other innocent. It made the job for the parents of the innocent one much easier. Casey and her whole team should be ashamed.

Anthony will finish her probation probally leave the country so she won't have to pay back the money Perry ordered her to pay back, over 150k.

I used to assume that Baez got the murderous bitch off because he was smart. But now that I see how dumb this guy really is... I realize Casey the child-killer just got extremely lucky by getting the dumbest jury in history.

Sorry BOZO! You will never make a dime off of Casey going mainstream no matter how much you try and compare her to other people. She is a baby murderer and you and she will pay for your lies.

OMG.....Jose seriously needs to reconsider this comparison. First...Amanda Knox did not accuse her father & brother of sexually molesting her. Second...Amanda did not accuse her father of covering up the death of the human being she was on trial for killing. This 2 reasons are why Casey Anthony does not have ANY KIND of relationship with her own parents. I don't blame Casey's parents for turning their back on their daughter after these serious, heinous, and OBVIOUSLY false accusations.

Baez is full of crap. Casey Anthony's parents tried to support her, but Baez prevented it. His client followed her attorney's instructions and prevented them from visiting her in jail for YEARS, and sat in court stone-faced while he accused her father and brother of sexual molestation. Despite that, they both lied on the stand in her defense. Had they not been so supportive of her lying and stealing, their granddaughter might still be alive today. Baez made a tactical error in engineering the estrangement between Casey and her parents - the public now loathes this sponging, lying, ungrateful human.

LOLOLOL...I can't decide which is funnier...TMZ's claim that Casey and Amanda are now both 'big celebrities (Amanda-YES, Casey-NO ******* WAY) or Jose Bozo pretending to be thrilled for Amanda and the fact that she is stealing his murdering client's 'thunder' and paycheck now.

Are you kidding me??? Jose where do you get off saying Casey's parents didn't support her? They went out of their way to try and support them and you proceeded to throw them under the bus during the trial. Casey is 100 percent guilty and you know it. Amanda Knox was a victim of a misguided attempt at getting someone, ANYONE convicted. Jose, no self-respecting person will EVER come to see you for anything. You better figure out a different line of work. You're done as a lawyer.

Baez sees that Knox has the public persona to make bank while Anthony i*****ed and despised. Baez is just now figuring out that Anthony is a worthless meal ticket and thinks if he likens her to Knox he can make some money out of his client. Not going to happen, they are different as night and day.

How can these two be compared? If I remember correctly Casey accused her parents of being part of the cover up. Casey also said her Father and Brother molested her on International TV. It's hard to back someone that will take you down that easily. Sometimes you have to break up with family members.

If you were Amanda wouldn't you feel disgusted to be compared with Casey Anthony? Baez is simply trying to get some positive PR out of his worthless unsellable insane client. The more he compares the two the less favorable his client becomes.

WTF Ever!! Jose Bloez!! Big difference between Amanda and Killer Casey you dumb ass. One didnt kill anyone and the other did. Killer Casey is a dead woman walking and Amanda will have her life together in no time. Cant say the same for the fat ass bafoon you are still hanging onto. Also, you might want to have Killer Casey spaid before she kills again and you have that mess on you greasy hands. Dumb ass MF'er
