Baez Not Qualified To Defend In Death Penalty CasePOSTED: 3:37 pm EDT April 13,
UPDATED: 4:46 pm EDT April 13,
ORLANDO, Fla. -- In
a change of heart, the state attorney's office has filed a letter of
intent Monday to seek the dealth penalty for Casey Anthony.A
spokesman for Jose Baez, Casey Anthony's attorney, has confirmed that
the defense has been notified. Baez is not qualified to defend a client
in a death penalty case because he does not have the required amount of
experience by the Florida Bar.The court has also been notified of the state's intention.Previously,
the state said they would not seek the death penalty for Anthony, who
is in the Orange County Jail charged with first-degree murder in
connection with the death of her daughter, Caylee.The state attorney's office is citing "sufficient aggarvating circumstances" as the reason for Monday's decision.Meanwhile, the latest legal maneuver by Baez, may reveal where he plans to go with his client's defense.Baez
filed a motion asking a judge to let him subpoena cell phone records
from a dozen people -- and some of the names on the list are surprising.Casey
Anthony's own family -- George, Cindy and Lee Anthony -- are on the
list that Baez submitted to Judge Stan Strickland. Several of Casey
Anthony's friends and Roy Kronk are also on the list.Kronk is the meter reader who found the remains of Caylee Anthony in a wooded area off of Suburban Drive last December.A
criminal defense lawyer WESH 2 News spoke with said Baez can use these
phone records to find out who Kronk spoke with and whether he told
those people the same things he told investigators about what he saw
and when."The state puts on their case first; suddenly all these
things that seemed so incriminating, you lose focus when the defense is
raising issues that affect the credibility of the prosecution,"
criminal defense attorney Richard Hornsby said.
