Normal Casey Anthony to be in court December 11th

Post by artgal16 on Wed Dec 02, 2009 10:28 am

Casey Anthony’s attorneys will get an opportunity next week to argue several motions, including one aimed at prohibiting the Orange County Jail from recording her visits with her defense team. Jail officials said video recordings at the jail, which are routine according to corrections policies, are for the protection of the inmates and their attorneys, according to Allen Moore, a jail spokesman.
The attorney visits between Casey Anthony and her attorney, José Baez, are usually held in a classroom that is always digitally videotaped without any audio tracks, Moore said. “Our recording system in that part of the jail does not have the ability to record audio,” Moore added. Anthony’s team also wants the destruction of most existing video of their meetings.
Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland has scheduled a hearing on those motions at 9:30 a.m. Dec.11. Next week’s hearing, announced this morning, will likely draw more attention to the jail’s policies on recordings. “We have followed jail policies and rules very carefully and directly and we intend to continue do so,” Moore said. “We will attempt to accommodate Mr. Baez, but never outside of jail policy,” Moore said.
At times, a corrections officer is stationed outside that classroom or in one of the monitoring stations to observe the meetings, but not to listen to the conversations. Moore said the jail follows the same video monitoring procedures for all inmates. The only time a report is generated in relation to a meeting is when something inappropriate happens. In October 2008, jail staff warned Baez that he was not allowed to touch his client. Reports show corrections officers witnessed Baez hugging Anthony.
Moore said in a statement that jail policy “forbids any kind of touching between visitors and inmates.” Baez refrained from touching his attorney after those warnings. This is not the first time the issue of jail recordings has come in the Anthony case.
A video shot at the jail on Dec. 11, the day the remains of Caylee Anthony were discovered less than a mile from her family home, reportedly shows Casey Anthony reacting severely to the news. Corrections Lt. Tammy Unser told detectives Anthony began to breathe rapidly, her hands became sweaty and red blotches appeared on her neck after hearing the news on a TV hours after the discovery. She also requested a sedative from medical staff.
Anthony’s defense team didn’t want the video, which has no sound, released to the media. Her attorneys argued the images could be misleading and it violated her medical privacy. Local and national media, including the Orlando Sentinel, had filed legal documents to persuade Strickland to release the video. However, Strickland acknowledged the Sentinel’s request and ruled against it.
In June, Orange Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland ordered the court to seal that video. Next week’s hearing also will allow Anthony’s defense lawyers to argue another motion — one that argues that Florida’s death-penalty procedure is unconstitutional. And because the procedure is unconstitutional, the death penalty should be precluded as a potential sentence, their motion argues.
Defense lawyers Baez and Andrea Lyon filed that motion about two weeks ago. In it, her lawyers argued, “Even if the death penalty procedure were constitutional, the State has failed to charge Miss Anthony with the aggravating circumstances necessary to impose the death penalty; thus, a death sentence in this case would violate due process.”
Anthony’s lawyers argued in their motion that Florida’s capital-sentencing procedure “violates the notice and jury trial rights guaranteed by the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.”
Anthony, 23, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 2-year-old Caylee. The toddler was reported missing in July 2008 — about a month after she was last seen alive. Caylee’s remains were discovered December 2008 in woods just blocks away from her family’s east Orange County home

Yeah he wants to get touchy feely with his favorite client. He makes me ill. Why should KC get any privileges not allowed to other inmates? Such a waste of the courts time and tax payer money.

All of these shenanigans are so upsetting. Everyone
involved in this case is apparently under the impression that they are different from the rest of the low-lifes involved in similar cases in that they are somehow priviledged characters. They are characters all right.
