    I used to be indecisive. Now I’m not so sure.

    Good Morning.
    Well I have strong coffee and I think I will need it to make it through the comedy of error.

    Ann Finnell is in the courtroom. This is the first time she has been
    there since jury selection.

    Ann Finnel is a death penalty qualified attorney from Jacksonville. She would play a large part if Casey was found guilty. Her job would be to push mitigating factors, in order to get Casey life in prison instead of the DP.

    good morning. all ready to go. yahoo. It rained the whole weekend, even on our 18th wedding anniversary – June 26th. Oh well it was sunny 18 years ago, that’s all that counted way back when. We watched the video – AUSTRALIA!!! Fabulous.

      Congrats, Weezie! 18 years? My hubs and I will be married 18 years in July. The day we married was stormy and ruined my hair. We’ve not had a rainy anniversary since-go figure. lol

        Uh oh, I’ve got 2 years to 20…… We met at a local pub that was his home hunting ground as it was mine. Funny we never met all those years going there until 1989. We dated for 2 years, lived together for 2 years and then did the JUMP OR LEAP. I don’t think anyone would want either of us, so we are stuck together. lol

        Jun 27, 2011 @ 17:16:08

        Oh my…Weezie, my husband and I met in a bar that we both went to for a few years and never knew each other (and I was on the dart team and he liked watching the tournaments!). We met in ’91 and lived together for two years, too. And our hubs both have the same first name, lol!

        Kim, my mother and dad received their final divorce papers on their 25th wedding anniversary. Good thing I didn’t get an engraved silver platter! 😆

        Sherry; I was probably older than you – I managed to stay single until I was 43 and my husband – also single was 50. Everyone kept saying why bother, just live together. Such party poopers. Once they came to the wedding, everyone had a great wild time. I’m glad I have that memory. Summer weddings are great.

        Jun 27, 2011 @ 08:21:26

        The Devil incarnate. Does she actually understand what she’s reading with this 10th grade education!!! I think there is something more serious here like a plea deal or request for mistrial. It’s too freaky now that they have all gone into a meeting again.

      • Kim
        Jun 27, 2011 @ 08:24:52

        I think they would have to argue for mistrial on open court – I have no idea what is going on. I am listening to Bill S. and he has no clue

    Sooooooooooooo she is competetent to stand trial. Now why wasn’t that determined before the trial started? another Defence tactic I think!!


    • Kim
      Jun 27, 2011 @ 08:49:32

      She was evaluated WAYYYYY back when she was arrested and found competent then – also T. Lennemon wanted to use an insanity defense – or a diminished capacity at least and was run off the defense team

        Jun 27, 2011 @ 09:53:14

        Talking heads speculate that she may have had a breakdown, or they felt that the sobbing while Lee was on stand showed some mental breakdown. Glad Judge Perry went for the examinations — she’s competent to stand trial and should be ready to take the stand.

    Can you believe that they HALTED ALL Court proceedings to have the Inmate examined for COMPETENCY –

    What a waste of the Court, the Jurors, and the State’s time….

    She was COMPETENT when she KILLED little Caylee…
    She was COMPETENT during Jury Selection…
    She was COMPETENT when trial started….

    And then SUDDENLY – She is INCOMPETENT as trial progresses along, and the Defence is putting on their Case in Chief!

    “We had a difference in what I believe should have been done with the approach that is mental health related,” Lenamon told CNN’s Nancy Grace during an interview Tuesday night.Lenamon explained he would have had Casey plead not guilty —–BY REASON OF INSANITY.

    Baez is an ass. The defense is desperate. Casey should

    Bill Sheaffer:
    I do not think the competency hearing was done prior to her taking the stand. I don’t think the defense would be foolish enough to expose Casey to the cross exam. of Linda Drane-Burdick. She would start with Day-1 thru Day-31 talking about her actions and activites and the fact she’s a six-time convicted felon

    “Competence” vs. “incompetence” in this legal context is not the same as an insanity plea. Insanity plea = didn’t know right from wrong when she killed Caylee.

    Competency can be raised by any member of the court (prosecution, defense, judge, etc.) and is meant to assess, basically, the defendant’s ability to participate in her own defense.

    Here is the .PDF of the motion filed on Sat.—–it explains how “competence” is evaluated:

      I think Mason knows Casey wants to take the stand to tell ‘her story’. He is covering his hiney


      • Kim
        Jun 27, 2011 @ 11:31:11

        Lee didn’t hold up his end of the bargain so she has to get up and tell what ‘really’ happened

      • Xenu
        Jun 27, 2011 @ 11:47:06

        We’ll see….I honestly would be shocked if she were going to testify, esp. with Baez saying they expected to wrap up this week. I’d expect a more conservative estimate if KC were on defense witness list, i.e. – just her testimony and cross would take like 2-3 days. I think Cheney was going for a mistrial—-again. And KC’s family has said they want her to “get help,” so I could see them colluding w/ defense, trying to get her into a mental hospital instead of life in prison or death penalty.

      • Kim
        Jun 27, 2011 @ 11:54:22

        Casey on the stand would be HUGE!!!!

        Mason wanted her tested so he can say I told her not to, had doc’s check her out and she is competent – I wash my hands of it. Mason knows she will be eaten alive by LDB – she doesn’t stand a chance.

        Baez however has never been in this for Casey – this is all about his name and making it big. He doesn’t care if he gets disbarred – he has TV deals! He is the one that created this circus – with the help of C & G who are either regretting it now or soon will be

  71. Suzy Homemaker
    Jun 27, 2011 @ 11:45:44

    IMO, Dom Casey is going to backfire on the defense, because he worked for jose first, THEN the ants. Someone told him where the remains were, and it was NOT Kronk.

    Jun 27, 2011 @ 12:03:35

    “The Attorney General’s Office will be filing for rehearing in the Evans v. Florida Department of Corrections case,” wrote Bondi deputy communications director Jennifer Davis. “The Attorney General’s Office believes that the ruling is contrary to relevant decisions by the Florida Supreme Court, Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court as it applies to the imposition of the death penalty in this particular case.”

    • Dawgbert
      Jun 27, 2011 @ 12:10:35

      Nope. It will be in appeal for a while. I think JBP will
      let trial go on and if defense wants to appeal the verdict
      they can. She has not even been found guilty of death
      penalty murder yet. SF case does not apply.
