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."

Sorry but Amanda is nothing like Casey Anthony, Amanda didn't kill anyone unlike Casey who MURDERED her daughter may she rest in peace.

I think Amanda and Casey are both guilty, but the crime of killing your own child is way worse than being an accessory. Jose is never going make money off that murderer. He ought to cut his losses and set her free. But I'm happy if he keeps barking up this losing tree. LOL!

You have GOT to be kidding!!!!!!!!!!!! Baez cannot truly justify putting both of these women in the same category. What an insult to Amanda Knox asnd her family. Baez was deplorable in what he did. Win at any cost......I know an attorney's job is to fight for his/her client but he deserves to have trouble sleeping at night. He cared not a whit aobut lies or who he hurt in the process and her smirk while leaving jail when she was released says it all.

Casey Anthony was s***. Amanda Knox is an honors student that got caught up in the wrong circle and in a foreign land that didn't protect her rights. Terrible to compare to 2, Amanda is actually educated, Casey Anthony doesn't even have a GED

It's nauseating that this attorney compares the two cases--Casey murdered her child---even her lawyer knows that. He thinks comparing that to Amanda Knox is logical? Also, Amanda's attorney didn't claim her father sexually abused her to help booster her case. Casey's lawyer is ridiculous. He got her off, but for what? A life of being hated and hidden?

Who really cares if Casey really killed her daughter or not? 12 jurors who have friends, wives, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters found her NOT GUILTY!!!! So get over yourselves already!

Child murders are the worst. Her parents dont support her because she killed their grandbaby and she accused her father of molestation to try and make excuses for what she did. Im not sure that Amanda is innocent but there is still a huge difference. Parents are supposed to protect their children, not murder them

Oh yes, let's just blame Casey's parents for everything!! Never mind the fact that Casey is a lying little troll who has made her parents' lives a living hell! Baez is such a douchebag...

Jose Baez has confirmed public opinion of him by running down to Aruba to consult with another killer. Casey Anthony probably would have had her parents support if she had not lied to them for six months, and broken their hearts with the promise of a still-living granddaughter. Casey Anthony is a lying, heartless skank; Amanda Knox is more than likely innocent.

THE PERSON THAT MADE THE COMMENT ABOUT THEY IS NO COMPARISON REGARDING THE CASES ABOUT AMRANDA BEING A COLLEGE STUDENT AND CASEY NOT HAVING A GED WHO CARES AS FAR AS I'M CONCERN. THEY BOTH ARE IN THE SAME BOAT DID ANYONE CARES THAT SHE HAD A COLLEGE DEGREE WHEN SHE GOT ARRESTED. POINT BEING IF SHE WAS SO SMART WHY DID SHE FIND HER SELF IN THIS SITUACTION.
