Casey Anthony’s Lawyer Admits She Killed Her Baby – He Was Allegedly Paid With Sexual Favors – So The Gavel Wasn’t The Only Thing Banging In Court
In 2011, Casey Anthony was arguably the most hated woman in America when she stood trial for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Although Anthony never won over the court of public opinion, she did end up getting acquitted of her toddler’s murder. Given new court documents that have recently come to light, it’s unlikely that the public’s perception of Anthony will improve anytime soon.
According to the Miami Herald, an affidavit related to Anthony’s bankruptcy proceedings went public that contains incriminating statements from Dominic Casey, a private investigator hired by Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez.
“Baez had told me that Casey had murdered Caylee and dumped the body somewhere,” Casey said in the affidavit. “[He] needed all the help he could get to find the body before somebody else did.”
The court docs also reveal that Anthony allegedly wanted to frame Roy Kronk, a utility worker who happened upon Caylee’s remains, for the murder.
“Casey Anthony told me when Caylee came up missing, the back gate was left ajar,” Casey said in the affidavit. “Since Roy Kronk was a meter reader for the house, maybe ‘we could say Roy Kronk kidnapped Caylee.’”
In addition to the strong possibility that Anthony got away with murder, Casey alleged that Anthony also paid for her legal defense with sexual favors. Gossip site RadarOnline reported that Casey showed up to Baez’s office one night in 2008 and was confronted with “a naked Casey [Anthony]” running from her attorney’s office, conference room, and hallway.
“That night, I told her that she cannot allow him to continue engaging in this behavior,” said Casey. “Casey [Anthony] told me she had to do what Jose said because she had no money for her defense.”
According to Dominic Casey‘s sworn deposition, on Sept. 5, 2008, Baez had scheduled a television interview for Anthony, who was accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee, but she didn’t want to do it.
“[Jose Baez] called the network saying they would have to take a raincheck, hung up the phone and said to Casey: ‘You now owe me 3 blowjobs,’” alleged Casey in the deposition.
Baez responded to these allegations these allegations by issuing a blanket denial containing the threat of legal recourse to People Magazine.
“I have always conducted my practice consistent with the high ethical standards required of members of the Florida Bar,” he continues. “My representation of Ms. Anthony was no exception.”
“Legal action is forthcoming,” Baez writes.
