He made himself look very guilty of having an intimate relationship with that woman. Then if the woman comes in to testify and testifies about the things George told her about the case, it definitely affects what the jury thinks about the facts. It will be a question of fact as to whether or not George Anthony told her that the death of Caylee was a horrible accident which snowballed out of control.
It takes a huge leap in logic to say because George had an affair he's a child molester and body dumper!This River Cruise testified under oath that she DID NOT have a sexual relationship with George. The only things that may help her is the note he left at her home and if they have the texts from him! As far as George telling her "that it was an accident that snowballed out of control" he never told her how he knew that!George could have just wanted to believe that!

His story didn't make sense to most people. Many here talk about common sense; well, common sense tells most people that George Anthony's actions concerning this woman, visiting her at her place alone, are certainly suspicious. lol

Most of the "experts" chatting up this case on TV, all of whom are very much against Casey Anthony and big supporters of George Anthony, also said they thought his testimony was a problem, didn't sound truthful. Some speculated that it would have been better if he had at least 'fessed up to having an emotional affair with that woman. As for the credibility of the woman's testimony, that remains to be seen when she does testify. I think those text messages will go a long way toward establishing her credbility.

Who said that her testimony would mean he dumped the body?

The woman later corrected that statement about not having an affair with him, so it will not carry the negative weight that it would have if somehow she had been impeached about that.

Think about it. George Anthony goes to her place, ALONE, to "visit" with her on several occasions which he admits to. She is a single woman. He's visiting her in her place ALONE. If he really wanted to extend his concern about her brain tumor, WHY didn't he take Cindy with him to do so? If it had been an appropriate relationship with a volunteer, George Anthony would have taken his wife with him. He's not so stupid as to not realize what it looks like when he takes time to go visit a single woman alone without his wife, and then texts that woman that he "needs" her in his life.

She has information about him such as he did not have a job but Cindy thought he did have a job. It's possible that she can prove she loaned him money thru records she kept. And there is the text message from George saying that he "needed" her in his life. There is no requirement to PROVE that George believed what he said or not. All that is necessary to maybe establish reasonable doubt is that what he said is consistent with the defense theory of Caylee's death being an accident. If George was just expressing his hopes about Caylee when he told her that, then WHY wouldn't he get on the stand and say, yes, we were emotionally close, and I was just hoping beyond all hope that Caylee's death was an accident? If he's Mr. Honest John, and a shall-not-tell-a-lie guy, why not tell the truth about this?

I don't think Baez scored on Roy today.

The defense case gets weaker every day.

George definately took a hit today and if it was more then friendship he should have fessed up! I think everyone in that family carries the lying gene!! The problem with the defense is that they overeached with making George such a bad guy (molester) Roy Kronk(body snatcher) and then when the they got them both on the stand they didn't ask either one of them the BIG questions! Why not??

Like I said, even if they did have an affair, you still have to prove that he said what shes claiming and I dont think the prosecution will have any problem ripping her credibility to shreds. Maybe he did say that, but maybe she took it out of context. Maybe he meant that the whole thing was a big cluster**** that spun out of control. Things taken out of context can be very dangerous.

Couldnt agree more. He was all over the place, and his line of questioning was hard to follow as opposed to the prosecutions line which was quite smooth and to the point.

I think the problem was that mason kept trying to trip kronk up, which he failed at doing. Kronk may not be the best character, but he stuck with his story.

No, they don't have to "prove" that George said those things to that woman.

All they have to do is put the witness on the stand, have her testify about what she knows, and then the jury decides whether or not they believe her. It's simple really. The prosecution will have the chance to try to destroy her credibility when they cross examine her. But the bottom line is that the jury will decide how believable she is and how much they believed of what George said today. We just won't know how credible she seems until she testifies. But, no, the defense doesn't have to create a whole new case to prove that George had an affair with that woman.

You're right, it's just my perception that George lied about the affair. I am just speculating, like everyone else.
