I don't think or consider this blood money. He is aware of the anger across the world ... not just America ... the whole world. The prosecution team was excellent in my opinion, very professional, they never stumbled or stammered and never utilized a flip chart.

But ... Jose Baez establish a rapport with the jury .... good morning ladies and gentlemen of the jury ... and before the trial was over the jury was replying good morning ... or good afternoon. The prosecution team did not do a super suck up to the jury. Even Judge Perry did the super suck up to the jury.

Jeff Ashton believes as I do ... Casey Anthony killed her daughter and walks free today. Cindy Anthony dwells in the Twilight Zone, Jose Baez is sleaze and George did not molest Casey nor drown Caylee.

I do not think this is Caylee Marie Anthony blood money, I feel it's Ashton trying to explain how they blew it. They should have never gone for the death penalty. In addition the nearly 400 pieces of evidence was overwhelming for a jury with limited mentality.

During the trial and since the trial Casey Anthony has become the victim. But we all know Caylee Marie Anthony is the victim.

Jeff's book is dedicated to Caylee Anthony, "so no one forgets."

Okay. But none of this means it isn't blood money. Just because you agree with him doesn't make it right.

As far as Baez speaking to the jury, so what? You've got to do better than use that as a smear against the defense or the judge. Ashton should have been doing the same thing. Also Ashton could explain how they blew it without writing a book that generates profit.

The book is dedicated to Caylee Anthony, I'm sure his intentions are good.

However, profits will go in his pocket, unless he has otherwise stated.

If anyone on the defensive team wrote a book, I can hear the criticism now about how they're profiting for their own gain.

Not sure what makes Jeff Ashton any different. I don't have anymore intention of reading his book than I would a book written by Casey Anthony.

I agree. Truthfully the only difference is that people are just mad about the verdict and want to support him. Why they aren't directing anger at him, I will never understand. But for whatever reason they like to view him as a victim or underdog. Despite the fact that HE was the experienced attorney and Baez wasn't.

Perhaps it's my cynicism but I can't help but feel this is pandering to a specific audience.

I can't say as I would criticize one of the defense lawyers for writing a book.... hell I might even read it. But anyone from the family? Yeah, blood money.

Big.....HUGE!!!!

"innocent" means that they are innocent of the crime, they didn't do it.

"not guilty" means that they have not been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It doesnt mean that the jury has found anyone to be innocent of a crime.

[SIZE=3]
Quote:
[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][SIZE=3]not guilty[/SIZE] n. 1) plea of a person who claims not to have committed the crime of which he/she is accused, made in court when arraigned (first brought before a judge) or at a later time set by court. The choices of what one can plea are: guilty, not guilty, no contest, not guilty by reason of insanity, or incompetent to stand trial. 2) verdict after trial by judge sitting without a jury or by jury (unanimous decision in all but two states, which allow a verdict by only 10 of the jurors), stating that the prosecution has not proved the defendant guilty of crime or that it believes the accused person was insane at the time crime was committed. The accused cannot be tried for again for the crime charged. (See: plea, arraignment, not guilty by reason of insanity)
Even some of the jurors who've spoken with the media say that they didn't like Casey and that they feel that she was guilty of something. But according to them, the state failed to prove that.

Next, Ashton starts teaching at a law school...just wait...

Those who can do...those who can't...

Amazing coincidence, that his "retirement" was announced when he lost the case? Sure he worked there many years...blah, blah...still.

I will wait until the book is on the 90% off table at B&N, and idly glance at it. Should be in about 9 months.
