Jeff Ashton's book will be released in late November.

Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony

256 Pages
William Morrow Publisher

I do not consider this blood money and I will read his book. I am curious to see if he addresses where he feels the prosecution went wrong with this case.

Based on the 6 or 7 inte3rviews he gave in the days that followed the trial, he doesn't think they did go wrong. I believe he said they did the best they could with what they had, which I agree.

I still think that he made the mistake of charging this case with the death penalty. That was over the top, based on media hype.

There must be a reason some people persist in claiming the state overcharged. The charges went down to Attempt to Commit Child Abuse.

I'll read Ashton's book; I'd also read a book by Baez.

I agree and good thing his will be the first one out. Not one other dime will be spent on another one, no matter who writes it, for me.

...snipped... I'd also read a book by Baez.
Why in heavens name would you read a book by Baez ? The man is an idiot and a liar and I doubt the book would even be written by him.....not me. I consider that man a buffoon.

Why? Because he did his job? The job that he spent 7 years of his life in school in order to be able to do?

Defense attornies get a bad rap. The laws that people expect others to be punished for breaking are the same laws that gaurantee us a fair trial, and the right to legal representation.

Did he lie and break the "good faith" laws that lawyers are expected to follow? IDK, most likely IMO, but we dont know and never will.

Because most people are sick of the "Casey lies", why would we pay our hard earned money to hear more of them?

The guy you call an 'idiot' and 'buffoon' took what on the surface appeared to be an unwinnable case, and won. Not a hung jury, an actual acquittal. Amazing accomplishment.

If his book dealt with jury selection, how he decided to question witnesses, all the legal aspects of the case he's permitted to disclose, I'm as interested as in reading what Ashton has to say.
