You are apparently looking as his brand spanking new website ... his old website during the trial is gone with the verdict of not guilty $$$$$ ... on the old site he handled personal injury too ... anything.

I will praise the justice system becausse it's the best in the world. As I have said before, the justice system doesn't always work, either for the innocent, or for the guilty, but it's the best we got.
You are right I certainly would not want to be on trial in Mexico or like Joran van der Sloot facing a murder trial in Peru.

But justice was not served in the Casey Anthony trial ... not saying our justice is wrong or bad ... just saying this one fell through the cracks.

What are you talking about? I havn't seen them in the "spotlight" ever. Infact, I seen them talking to the local news media in their hometown at the memorial service held on caylee's birthday but thats it! And even that was only for a few seconds.

And how do you figure they are trying to make money off her death? What money have they made exactly? I hear they will be appearing on the Dr. Phill show { which I am looking forward to } and they told the producers to give the money for that interview to a charity for lost and missing children!

I fear you have been misinformed.

What about their behavior do you find suspicious?

Jose Baez has his own law firm. I don't know how familiar you are with the legal world but most firms have several lawyers that work in them. So, while The Baez Law Firm may have lawyers that specialize in personal injury, that doesn't mean Baez is an "ambulance-chasing" lawyer. More often then not a lawyer has just one specialty, and criminal law is Jose Baez's

Also, he didn't "chase" her down. If I remember correctly, another prisoner referred her to Jose Baez.

As so many others do every day in this country. The only diference between those and this one is that they don't get the media attention that the Casey Anthony Case got and we don't know about those. This is nothing new.

One thing I know is that not publicity is good publicity and in Baez and Mason case it might work against them in the future...on top of that are they so busy to get a deal that in the end it might not be e deal they hope for and based on all the hours and cost they had to make it might not be much.

Perhaps sooner than later Baez will be in the public records for not being able to pay all the bills and being sued for them....that will not be the first case it happens to.

Some lawyers might sue him and win and get a large judgment against him....to be honest, he might have done a brilliant job getting her off and walk free, but to me he was lucky with a bad jury and although I will never end up in the chair next to him for some negative thing....even if that would happen I would not have him ad my lawyer...!

Baez's home was in foreclosure in July 2010. After Casey was declared indigent I don't know what the taxpayers of Florida paid him.

Their bizarre, camera-hogging behavior from the very beginning, before Caylee's body was even being found, is what caused and attracted the circus atmosphere surrounding this case and attracted media vultures like Nancy Grace. When Caylee was first missing, protesters would march in front of their house with signs and what did George and Cindy do? Run right outside to physically and verbally spar with them! Yes, get into pushing and shoving matches and spew obscenities at people. They couldn't resist the attention. Anyone normal would not have come outside to join the fracas and make it worse.

I fear you have been misinformed.
I fear you have been misinformed.

They already had a charity for Caylee and spent every penny they received on themselves ("administrative costs"). Now they started a new "non-profit corporation" and plan to be officers of it and give themselves official salaries out of it because "nobody will hire them and they can't get jobs" or some other such nonsense.

As for your beloved Dr. Phil appearance, YES, they are going to make money off it. What you neglected to write (or what you are ignorant of) is that the charity they are asking him to contribute to is THEIRS. As per PEOPLE magazine:

George Anthony, Cindy Anthony Will Appear on The Dr. Phil Show : People.com

Since Casey Anthony was acquitted, media outlets have been clamoring to score the first interview with the Anthonys. Dr. Phil explains that the interview is being done in return for a donation to Caylee's Fund, the Anthonys' charity.

I don't know. If my child or grandchild was missing, I'd turn to the media for help locating them. I don't know many people who would not.

According to the IRS 80% of the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation, Inc went to "Administrative Expenses." Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation is listed on the IRS as a Non-Profit Foundation. Cindy & George are officers of this Foundation.

Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation, Inc., Orlando, FL

Registration Number :CH29385 Expiration Date : 4/23/2011

Revenue Source : DCS Statement of Support/Revenue (12/31/2009)

Total Revenue : $2,580.72 Program Services Expenses : $630.25 20%

Total Expenses : $3,107.49 Administrative Expenses : $2,477.24 80%

Surplus/Deficit : -$526.77 Fund-Raising Expenses : $.00 0%


The new money grubbing venture, Caylees Fund is being incorporated as a Not-For-Profit Corporation. They also decided to maintain the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation too. I assume, just in case money shows up there too. One has to cover all financial bases!

There is NO NEED to help locate Caylee now.

Thus there is NO NEED for the Anthonys to be in the media now.

When they thought Caylee was missing (or, for those who believed Baez, were pretending the drowned Caylee was missing), of course they turned to the media for help. Unfortunately, due to their own combative personalities, they ended up as the main event in a sideshow of freaks.

Just look at one of many videos:

It's not a choice. Once the Amber Alert strikes then the Media take it upon themselves to become apart of the hunt not so much to help but more like to get the breaking story of when the child is found dead or alive first. Called Ratings.


IF you think about it Media can be a good thing the more people know the more people are looking or want to help volunteer to help you find your child.
