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."

Bozo Baez is still as dumb as ever. Amanda was being accused of killing some Foreigner in Italy. Casey murdered an innocent child. BIG difference dip ****.

Ignorant A-Hole Bozo Still trying to sell books and newspapers about the murderer - Caylee was Casey's responsibility - Caylee is dead - Casey is responsible - can't make it much clearer than that.

You have GOT to be kidding me! There is a HUGE difference in the two cases and Senor Baez is just trying to keep his name in the press. Casey Anthony got away with murdering her own child and Amanda Knox was aquitted because she did not kill her roommate. There was plenty of evidence to convict Anthony and the "evidence" in the Knox case was fabricated. Any grandparent who knows their child is lying about killing their child (or knowing what happened but lying about it to police) would probably not stand by their child. Even if she did NOT kill her child she knew what happened and lied about it to police. Knox had the prosecution nail her with tainted "evidence", faulty witnesses and no motive. The two are not the same. Knox IS an all American girl to who something awful happened and Anthony is a mother who let her little girls body rot in the woods while she played the victim.

Comparing Amanda to Casey is like comparing apples to alligators. Casey murdered her own daughter, Caylee. As for parental support during the trial, Cindy lied through her teeth for Casey. Baez is trippin' and Casey is a cold-blooded child killer. RIP Caylee Marie Anthony

What is Baez talking about? Cindy Anthony perjured herself to get Casey off, and the father's reputation was destroyed for life as part of the defense claim. That's about a thousand times more support than Casey deserved!

Yeah, whatever, Jose!

The difference is Amanda is innocent- your client is NOT! BTW...her parents put up with her lies and conniving for YEARS! Her parents supported her until it was time to say ENOUGH! She lied for 2 years about having a job! Her parents were working to support their family during that time! They were wonderful grandparents and did not deserve the crap their spoiled, pschyo, crazy, manipulative daughter put them through!

Did you forget? Casey's mother lied for her during her testamony to SAVE HER PATHETIC, EVIL AZZ!!!!!!!!! The testamony proved that Casey was a horrible person!

Casey will always be hated for her conniving, lying, hurtful behavior!!! I am in agreement with the person who posted "she had the luckiest lawyer with the dumbest jury in America"! Amen to that!!!

I want some of what Baez is smoking. To compare Casey to Amanda is just as delusional as his client.

Those two are exactly opposite! Amanda's parents are supporting her because she is innocent. Anthony's parents are not supporting her because they know she's guilty!
