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."

Jose Baez is a scab;
Caseys parents know Casey was somehow responsible for the death of her child. 98% of us know Casey killed her kid.
I would say that more than half of the people in the USA honestly believe Amanda was innocent, unlike heartless , cold killer mom. And Jose, Maybe thank Cindy for telling those lies. Jose should rot in hell alongside Casey, the MURDERER

One slight difference - Amanda didn't accuse her father of molesting her. That makes it easier to support her.

OMG. really?? After watching the murderess mother's trial in FL nearly every day this summer, I know what a complete douche and bumbling idiot Baez is. By looking at some of the other comments here, I see I am not the only one. What an idiot he is.

Truth    

They are both guilty of murder and got away with it. That's the only comparison that can be made.

The more important question here is: if Casey's father really did molest her for years, why would she want him to be involved with her life now and need his support?

Just more proof that she's a liar. No one asks for their molester to support them.

That's why Amanda Knox has recieved ovation from this country and well wishes . She made a statement thanking everyone as Casey Anthony slunk into the night into hiding as the most hated woman in America. I don't care what the jury found, the system failed Caylee Anthony.

Anthony's lawyers should be ashamed for even trying to associate themselves with Knox who's actually innocent

After Casey tried to through her dad under the bus, and lied to her own parents, I'm guessing Jose felt like the should just lay down and take all of her abuse?? Casey hid the fact that her own daughter was dead, whether she did it or not. Left the child's body in the woods where it could be eaten by anything that came along, and went out partying all the while knowing her precious daughter was dead??? How the #@!$ does that compare to Amanda Knox and the fact that her parents feel that she is innocent??? Jose, you're starting to make me sick to my stomach. Please shut up and go away!!!!

Yes Baez but she wasn't accused of killing the only grandchild and lying about where the grandchild was for a month.

Amaanda is lucky she did her murder in a foreign country. If she'd gone through the same thing at home, everyone wouldn't be so sympathetic.

Sounds like Baez is tired of financing Casey post-trial and want her parents to take over.
