Attorney Jose Baez "Embarrassed And Ashamed..."
Casey Anthony's Attorney Baez Defends Jurors
Casey Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez blasted TV journalists, while defending Casey Anthony jurors, indicating his disdain for reporters seeking interviews with jury members. Baez believes jurors should be let alone and not hounded for interviews.
Baez successfully defended Anthony at trial on charges of killing her daughter Caylee. Anthony is now serving a one-year probation for bad check charges at a secret Florida location.
The court released the names of the murder trial jurors this week, after a "cooling off" period mandated by the judge. Reporters in Pinellas county, Florida have been trying to contact the names released.
Baez told a reporter "It's ridiculous, absurd, and I'm embarrassed and ashamed to be a part of this process," saying jurors were picked, and didn't choose to be a part of the infamous trial and should be let alone.
