It’s official: Casey Anthony’s lawyer Jose Baez is off her case
Standing by her side the whole way through the controversial murder trial, the pair were so close, it was even rumoured they had struck up a romantic relationship. But it appears that now the public’s interest in Casey Anthony is waning, so too is her lead lawyer’s. Online clerk records show Jose Baez has officially withdrawn from the once most-hated-woman-in-America’s defense team. His notice of withdrawal was filed on Tuesday, just over a month after it was first announced he was quitting. This came amid reports Baez’s relationship with Anthony was deteriorating after video diaries of the 25-year-old appeared online. On the Clerk of Courts website, Baez’s name, still listed in the Lead Attorneys category, had been crossed out, with no name as yet to take its place.
