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.
Reminds me of Crumpety Crump. He got his ugly ass famous in the TreyTrey case. I want to vomit every time I see his face. Damn, that guy is one stupid doofus!

I had always figured the lawyer was working for free to gain the publicity and future clients. Hell just look what it could do for his business after he actually pulled it off. Not sure I totally believe this story but not saying I don't either.

OJ definitely would have been better served in a California prison, rather than the Nevada prison where he is currently wasting away.

Miss Anthony is a classic psychopath / sociopath. She will never change, but I don't worry about it. The wheels of justice grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.

I heard she was pregnant with twins and omg do I fear that we will see her in court again for a. neglect b.abuse or c. murder . I wonder where her parents are ? we all remember cindy and George don't we ? God I wanted to vomit when I saw them on dr phil and I was like how can anyone in their right mind defend their daughter or son who commited such an atrocity . I hope she nor her parents even sleep peacefully again .

I didn't want to believe the story based on my wife's experience with PIs, especially PIs hired by the defense, and my prejudice against Florida, but this guy filed a legal document opening himself to perjury…you don't do that unless you're either sure of yourself or crazy. I don't know what to believe at this point, but I'm sure there will be a documentary about this a few years down the road (a la "Making a Murderer").

That private investigator has ZERO credibility. The attorney has denied it. Geraldo was talking about it this morning. He has spoken to the lawyer and the lawyers wife, who he knows from the trial, and he has no doubt the lawyer is telling the truth.
