Yes its totally screwed up if its true. I always had a very negative opinion of her attorney. However even with all that anyone who could not see she was guilty is an idiot. How a jury ever bought that crap is beyond me.

All this is hearsay, a claim put out there by an investigator. Not exactly proven facts to be used to disbar an attorney. I guess we all have our opinions about this case, and what coulda shoulda woulda oughta ta have happened to Ms. Anthony, but it is what it is, and IMO, the less attention paid to this disgusting woman and to this case, the better.

You certainly aren't alone in your opinions of this case. But you know that juries can only follow the laws, making their decisions based on the "beyond a doubt" evidence, not on their feelings or opinions of the lawyers in the case, and certainly not on the preponderance of public opinion. The evidence Casey killed her daughter was not there-possibly because she waited at least a month to admit the child was missing. Any evidence was circumstantial, and kind of "whose else could have done it"-based. IMO ( from a non-expert), the prosecutors tied the jury's hands when they went for a first degree murder conviction, perhaps they could have gotten a conviction for manslaughter.

I don't know, she wasn't convicted of much of anything, not even child neglect, and it does pretty much look like she got away whatever her contribution to her daughter's murder was. Perhaps karma will have its way with her. How that happens, if it happens, I really don't care to know.Less attention she gets, the better, IMO.

Theoretically, CA shouldn't be in the news anymore. There are fates worse than death or prison. Stories like this remind the public of what she was assumed/accused to have done and serves as a punishment by not allowing her to go into obscurity where she can live a happy life.

I suppose only Casey Anthony and her attorney know the answer to this question.

What you fail to understand though is the motivation that an attorney might have for taking this case. The notoriety and free advertising her attorney got in this case was overwhelming. I suspect he has gotten many more paying clients since this case occurred. The publicity that such a case generates for a professional person leads to all kinds of possibilities: new cases; book deals; interviews; and perhaps even compensation for giving product endorsements.

If her attorney failed to make a dime off this case it was still worth taking it.

Also, before you blame the attorney and accuse him of doing something that is wrong think of why book deals and product endorsements occur. John Q Public is fascinated by crime. This has always been the case. The real wrongdoer is a public that is far more interested in reading crime stories than news reports about scientific discoveries, new inventions, and good deeds being performed by others. Its the way people are.

Now, let's say this is true. It's a simply bartering deal. Legal work in exchange for sex. He will have to report this on his taxes. To do so he will have to establish a value for the client's time. Hourly? Per *extremely gross and sexist word deleted* ? Does he use the going rate? I doubt the IRS has tax tables for this.

Followed her case in Florida. We concluded she is a bisexual ,psychopath ,who found her child interfering with her wild life style and took her out semi- accidentally yet irresponsibly with an overdose of ether in an attempt to get her to sleep. Oops! There is no real proof of the lawyer getting paid with sex.

She doesn't deserve to live a happy life. I don't care what any Jury says they are always made up of morons just like judges. She deserves to forever live in disgrace and then hell.

My gut thinks she was guilty but since she claimed innocence why would she display remorse?
