Is it possible that Jose Baez knew where the body was at before it was found. If so, why didn't he report it? Are lawyers excluded from some laws?

I think anything you tell your lawyer is confidential...I think the lawyer can only break that agreement if the client says tomorrow I'm going out and killing someone!!

Do you have a daily quota you have to meet for thread starting? If so, you've been reaching lately.

The answer is something called attorney/client privelege. The answer is no. Most defense attorneys won't even ask their clent if they did it in case the client testifies and lies. They do have to report a client committing perjury.

If this is an attempt to somehow smear Baez via an anonymous posting on an internet forum you're despicable.

Tell me about it!!!! And his lack of knowledge of our justice system and ignorance of the law becomes ever more clear with each post.

client gives him his information in good faith and he does best he can and for client paying him...unless u have a better justice system to offer, this is it...it works and of course there are exceptions to justice; no system is perfect....

in saudi arabia and other middle eastern countries (which hate us) they cut off the body part which committed the crime before ever proving it...many innocents suffer, but they get there casey...u want that?

get real....... a good lawyer's job is to defend
the client who all others are against.....would we want it any other way in America? you have Saudi arabia where they cut off ur body part before trial and that's that...or pakistan where u can be stoned legally w/o a trial or i could go on... start defending ur country and stop bashing it

believe me....we are getting there quickly...the other rules u have so many ights, u are blind

You can defend your client but can not knowingly cover up a crime. Although "ethics" are pretty much lost on attorneys, they have a legal and moral obligation..............So find one that actually supports that? Good luck

Even then they can't break confidentiality, believe it or not. If they do, they lose the license to practice. Lawyers are NOT mandated reporters.

But this was not a potential death. Caylee was way, way dead before the attorney heard of the Anthony family.
