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."

"Zozeksin: 8 hours ago
But she has been revealed innocent. Now her parents are doing wrong with her. She wants to support of parents."

!st off I wont "suppor" your advertisement!

How in the world are they doing her wrong? She financilly ripped them off, lied to them and BLAMED HER DAD FOR COVERING UP THE DEATH OF CHILD- and not to mention blamed her dad and brother for sexual abuse- which NONE of the above was ever proven or even tried to be proven - all lies to save her azz!

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

In what world would anyone consider Casey and all american girl? seriously? wth!

BIG difference between the two. . . Amanda Knox was not guilty. She STAYED in Italy in the beginning because she wanted to help find who murdered her friend. Of course her parents stood behind her. Casey Anthony is GUILTY. She never even reported her child missing. She didn't care about Caylee. George and Cindy should have fed her to the wolves from the beginning instead of waiting until after the trial.

Translate It    

I think what Baez might be trying to say is that what the two girls have in common is that they are "TYPICAL" American sluts.

Except for one important detail. The Knox's daughter didn't murder their granddaughter.

Another opportunity for Baez to TRY to rehab his killer client. No money deals coming in because she is so hated so he's trying a different spin! Sorry...not going to happen! Anyone with a brain can tell the difference between these two girls, it's day and night! Quit trying to make Casey look like she is a human being who cares about anyone but herself. And get your story straight about her going to counseling...she denied going to her PO. If you're going to lie, you need to tell the same story!

Her parents stayed with Knox because she was innocent. Unlike the animal you representated Mr. Baez! The lies she told about her father was unforgivable! She may be out, but she will suffer for her sins the rest of her life!

KERRY!    

dumb people. Casey and Amanda = free from jail after committing a crime. If any of you think these women are innocent you have not followed the cases. The only difference between amanda and casey is that amanda did it in italy so she has more support from dumb americans who have no idea what really happened, had amanda committed this crime in the US and was found innocent by a US JURY all of you would hate her as much as you hate casey.
Bottom Line,,, these 2 chicks are nuts and they will BOTH kill again.

There is NO comparison to a baby killer and Ms. Knox. Baez is s fool to even think so. Ms. Knox was wrongfully convicted and Ms. Anthony was wrongfully aquitted. VERY DIFFERENT

It is NOT fair to compare these two woman at all....The difference? Well, for starters Amanda did not elaborate a story for her defense and blame her parents, and father for supposedly abusing her. Of course her family stuck with her, and of course CA's parents have not!!

I guess perjury by the mother and letting oneself be accused of sexual abuse and cover up does not count. I hope nothing but the worse for the whole A legal team. S*** bags
