I think they did quite well considering the lack of physical evidence. I don't think they will get the death penalty based on what was presented, but they will put Casey behind bars for the remainder of her life. Considering she is a young woman and will probably have to be kept in solitary, it will be a miserable life time.

I vote Guilty, I am also going to go with pre-meditation. Death penalty.

That is how I would go.

I would too jasper....but I doubt seriously 12 jurors are going to agree on that one.
Then again, Florida doesn't play around with the death penalty.

It'll be either Baez or someone else. Often a different attorney is selected for death penalty appeals because a common argument is "ineffective assistance of counsel" which would violate the Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution.

I'm no fan of long drawn out appeals, but the problem is (for anyone who cares) there are at least ten documented cases of innocent people in the last decade or so who ended up on death row by mistake. Without such a lengthy appeals process, they would all be dead.

Now you tell me: Would you rather have that appeals process or would you rather we wrongly executed those innocent men? Second question: Would your answer change if one of those innocent people on death row was you, a friend, or a relative?

Anyone can have a gut reaction to crime. It takes a wise person to design a system which strikes a balance between incapacitating guilty people and preventing them from doing further harm to society and having a police state which incarcerates (and executes) the innocent along with the guilty.

Give this some thought and get back to me...

It was in "jest", I would not vote death for being away from my family on July 4th.

The death penalty is a law in the State of Florida. It is not for me to determine laws, or interpret them. If I was a juror, I would apply the law as instructed.

Yes, innocent people get convicted of crimes every day. That is our justice system, it is not perfect. Nothing I can do to change the system, I will defer that to Congress, and the Supreme Court. They uphold the death penalty as constitutional. Has nothing to do with me.

I think the jury has no other option but to find her guilty,I don't think any jurror could with a straight face try to hang the case! Baez gave them nothing as far as reasonable doubt!

My take on what Casey did was to use cholorform to put her to sleep,placed her in trunk to party and baby suffocated and after carrying her in trunk for several days had to do something with body and dumped her in woods.
