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."

Everyone in the world already knows how easy Lying comes to Casey Anthony.Baez admitted she was a LIAR AND A SLUT,and when a jury goes to deliberate that means to hash over and discuss the facts of the case, that is what SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED AND DID NOT.Casey, twist and turns statements and comments to suit the occasion.With a little COMMON SENSE you should know once the police found the "Zenaida" that applied for a apartment at Sawgrass,Casey only recourse to lie again and say,thats not her,jerking the police around.ALL LIARS sooner or later get caught up in there own LIES, she gave "ZENAIDA CAR PLATE TO THE POLICE, NAMED HER CHILDREN.AND A LOT I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT.So if I was deliberating,my question would be,WHERE WAS CLAYEE?If she was not with "zanny,not with Casey,not with Grandparents THEN WHERE?

I do not have the entire article,but the "ORLANDO SENTINEL" ARTICLE---The Florida Bar confirmed Tuesday that two complaints over professional conduct filed against Casey Anthony Attorney Jose baez have progressed to the grivance committee.This means the complaints have not closed,and moved from staff level to the next point in the process.The volunteer grivance committee is a rough equivalent o*****randjury.

Obviously The Anthonys didnt hurt babykillers case. She is a free murderer thanks to your underhanded tactics of trashing her family. Quit talking. You just sound more and more stupid.

Ethical complaints against Jose Baez move forward
Posted: 12:23 PM ET


While this blog is dedicated to coverage of the Conrad Murray trial, we know many In Session and HLN viewers have been closely following the Casey Anthony case and wanted to be sure to include this important update on that story.

The Florida Bar will continue to pursue two complaints filed against Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez. The details of what sparked these complaints have not been disclosed to the public, but it’s widely speculated they stem from Baez’s representation of Casey Anthony.

The complaints will to go to a grievance committee, which is comparable to a grand jury. The grievance committee will rule on whether to bring charges against Baez.

In August, Baez told CNN, "I am looking forward to the Bar completing its investigation, so that it can be dismissed just like the 20 previous complaints. It is part of the job whenever you fight an unpopular case."

If the 10-member committee - made up of attorneys and non-attorneys from the Orlando area - believes the investigation’s findings establish probable cause, the complaints would then go the Florida Supreme Court, which could then discipline Baez.

Thank GOODNESS some others know that Amanda Knox is not without guilt!! Those who think she is 100% innocent have not been following this story from the beginning. They didn't see how she walked into court glaring with a smirk on her face. She will get hers too.

baez now has the gull to add insult to injury by comparing these two girls: firstly Amanda didn't kill anyone.
her parents supported her not only out of love but because she didn't fabricate filthy lies about her father. BaeZ, how dare you call CA an all american girl. All american girls do not go around killing their innocent sweet babies. or leading a life of debauchery like CA DID.wE CAN ASSURE YOU THAT ILLIONS OF ALL AMERICAN GIRLS take issue with yoour including CA in their ranks. you must have a very low comcept or regard for what real "all american girls"

I cannot believe you would compare Amanda with Casey, are you kidding me! Casey is a baby killer, she killed her baby and you call her a celebrity what the hell is wrong with you people? This sends a really good message to all the sick bastards out there, kill your child and you will become rich and famous. Shame on all of you.

Do NOT put these two in the same category. The only thing they have in common is I believe they both got away with murder. Hell will have a special spot for the both of these women if that is indeed true.
Of course Amanda's family supported her though, she didn't throw them under the bus. That is one thing I'll say about her.

Please only say facts people. They both were found innocent, that doesn't mean they are innocent. I believe they bother ARE indeed guilty. Americans only believe Amanada Knox is innocent because because she's American [better believe if she were from anywhere else, everyone would be saying shes guilty]
