CMA Timeline – April – 2009


WED, April 1, 2009APRIL FOOL’S DAY!   Atty. José Baez had earlier filed a request for an ex-parte hearing before Judge Stan Strickland.  Baez wanted to meet with the judge in private so “sensitive matters which are critical to the defense can be addressed.”  Baez stated he did not want the prosecution and the public to know about any defense theories.  

Strickland noted in his order: “No legal authority has been provided to allow an ex-parte hearing under the circumstances outlined in defendant’s motion.”  DENIED

Kiomarie C. was deposed by Atty. Baez. Kiomarie C. sold her story to the National Enquirer. She told the National Enquirer the spot where Caylee’s body was found is the same area –“The Zone,” where she and Casey spent lots of time. Kiomarie C. said she and Casey used the land as a pet cemetery.  She also said they wore black dresses and prayed as they buried their dead pets.

FRI, April 3, 2009 The Morgan & Morgan Law Firm (representing ZFG) filed a motion for contempt because P.I. Dominic Casey was a NO SHOW for his deposition which was scheduled for 3/25/09.   P.I. Casey asked a judge to delay the deposition so he could hire a new attorney.  ZFG’s attys. want a judge to find P.I. Casey in contempt and sanction him for their expenses.

P.I. Dominic Casey’s license could also be in jeopardy after a judge found that he divulged defense secrets to detectives investigating the Caylee Anthony murder.

MON, April 7, 2009 – Prosecutors told Eyewitness News they mistakenly released the recordings of the jail officers who saw Casey on 12/11/08; the day a small childs’ remains were found near the Anthony home.  At the time, it the remains had not been officially identified.

The officers said Casey heard the news on the radio in her jail cell and later saw WFTV’s special report on TV.

The Prosecutor stated that the audio tapes were supposed to be held until a judge ruled on a defense request to keep them away from the public.

WED, April 8, 2009 – Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland is one of two people who have filed new complaints against José Baez. The FL Bar says both investigations involve Baez’s former P.I. Dominic Casey.

P.I. Dominic Casey told detectives he would’ve called 911 if he had found Caylee in November, but also that he was told not to call 911 by someone he apparently identified during an interview, which Judge Strickland sealed because it divulged defense secrets.

According to Eyewitness News Atty. Brad Conway was with P.I. Dominic Casey when he gave investigators information that Judge Strickland later determined was privileged to the defense.

WED, April 9, 2009  – George Anthony’s deposition was held at 10:30 a.m. in the mock courtroom of the Morgan & Morgan Law Firm located in downtown Orlando, FL.  George is now on record as having publicly stated that the ZFG who filed the civil suit for defamation against Casey Anthony is not the ZFG that Casey alleged kidnapped her daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

Cynthia Anthony’s deposition was held at 1:30 p.m. at the same location as George’s depo. Cindy  is now on record as having publicly stated that the ZFG who filed the civil suit for defamation against Casey Anthony is not the ZFG that Casey alleged kidnapped her daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

[Note: Some of the questions they changed their story about or refused to answer, ironically are already a matter of record via LE and/or media interviews.]

FL Atty. Gen. Bill McCollum filed a law suit against Jaime Salcedo and his company, Showbiz Promotions.  He claimed that the profits from the Caylee doll would benefit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

The lawsuit filed by the state alleges Mr. Salcedo and his company intentionally misrepresented that a $5,000 donation was made to the NCMEC by Showbiz Promotions when, in fact, only a $10 donation has been confirmed.

P.I. Dominic Casey files a complaint against Atty. José Baez with the FL Bar.

THU, April 10, 2009Deputy Richard Cain, OCSO was fired after an internal investigation found his actions to be negligent – failure to properly investigate a tip called in by Roy K. in August 2008.

It is believed that tip might have led investigators earlier to the body of missing Caylee Marie Anthony.  He intends to appeal the termination, a sheriff’s spokesperson said.

Richard Cain was fired by the OCSO, but he refused the termination and will keep his job w/pay until an appeal is heard.

Atty. José Baez filed a motion requesting Judge Stan Strickland to order 11 different phone companies to turn over records of calls, texts and even cell tower pings to the defense. He wants this information for Lee, Cindy & George Anthony, Ricardo M., Tony L., Amy H., Jesse G., Roy K., Keith W., Richard C., Dominic C. and Jim H.

MON, April 13, 2009 – The Prosecution filed a Notice of Intent to seek the DEATH PENALTY in the case against Casey Anthony.  “Based upon additional information that has become available since the waiver of intent to seek the penalty of death filed on December 5, 2008, sufficient aggravating circumstances exist to justify the imposition of the Death Penalty,” the filed letter states.

G & C Anthony are scheduled to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show sometime in May 2009. No exact date has been set at this time.

THU, April 16, 2009 – Central FL State Congressman Alan Grayson (D-Orlando) wants to fund a $500,000 program with Federal Taxpayer money that would help find missing children. The funding, which must still be approved, would provide additional resources for law enforcement to look for missing children and it would honor Caylee Marie Anthony.

FRI, April 17, 2009 – CNN/Nancy Grace Show headline:  Casey Anthony Attorney Asks for Public Defender

GRACE: We also learn tonight that the defense plans on charging the taxpayer for tot mom`s defense.

Mike Brooks, Headline News, expert former fed with the FBI — Mike, how many times have you seen it, the taxpayer sucked dry in your homicide investigations?

MIKE BROOKS, FORMER D.C. POLICE, HLN LAW ENFORCEMENT ANALYST: Oh, all the time. You know, they come in and say, Oh, I don`t have any money. So then the public — they assign a public defender. And that`s what it is, it`s a public defender and that`s who`s paying for it, the public, Nancy. In a case like this, where they`re going to have to now with the death penalty back on the table, it`s going to cost the taxpayers millions, if it already hadn`t.

GRACE: There you see how much is being paid for the tot mom defense in capital cases. That`s what is paid when the state pays the bill. But how much has the Anthony family already made off Caylee`s death?

Straight to Beatty Cohan, psychotherapist and author. What do you make of the family already raking in over a quarter million dollars, then trying to claim indigence, poor-mouthing?

MON, April 20, 2009  – Roy K. has filed a Protective Order so he does not have to turn over certain phone records to Casey Anthony’s defense team.

Roy K. said José Baez’s recent application to subpoena phone records is “overbroad, and constitutes harassment.” David Evans (Roy K.’s lawyer) said Roy K. would not be opposed to a limited subpoena to determine if he ever had contact with Casey Anthony, her family or the Anthony’s private investigators.

TUE, April 21, 2009Oprah Winfrey Show canceled the interview with G & C Anthony. “Based on the Anthonys’ decision to appear on other programs, we have decided not to move forward with their interview on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ at this time,” the spokesperson said.

Although Cindy claimed she declined Oprah’s offer based on “integrity,” her Attorney Brad Conway publicly stated the reason for the cancellation was because Oprah demanded exclusivity and that was not going to happen.
