    I've heard (and I don't know if this is absolutely true) that he got his J.D. from St. Thomas School of Law and a B.S. in Criminology from Florida State University. His defense really was a joke.

    I would say that reasonable doubt is not a technicality. My suspicion is that the prosecution allowed reasonable doubt. Whatever the facts of the case, I'm kind of glad at the very least that a defendant in a very emotional (child murder) and high-profile case can still get a fair trial despite the Nancy Grace-ish mob mentality that rushes to judgment because of how sympathetic the victim is.

    Absolutely.

    I hear ya, he was so inarticulate and soft spoken (like he wasn't sure of himself), I was torn between feeling sorry for him and bored out of my mind. Good looking suits though.

    Fortunately for Casey, the prosecution didn't prove their case.

    I heard the case was pro bono. Does anyone know if that's true? If it is, then Mr. Baez was probably looking to gain some much needed experience and notoriety. Looks like he hit the jackpot.

Was she basically undoubtedly guilty, but the legal system has struck again in an unfortunate "not guilty" verdict based on a technicality/technicalities? I'm too lazy to research the back story.

    Honestly, all feelings aside iwakar, did you follow this trial? The verdict is not based on technicalities. Aside from all of the media attention, this trial was standard routine. The jury of Casey's peers decided, based on the evidence presented to them, that Casey is not guilty. There was enough reasonable doubt to acquit her. It's the prosecution's responsibility to prove their case and they did not. It's that simple.

    I've followed the case by virtue of those close to me following the case. I was rather surprised by the verdict, as it seems very likely that she did participate in the death of her child. However, I find the reactions to the not guilty verdict to be over the top. People have talked about how they hope Casey Anthony gets beaten or worse by members of the public.

    I did. Interest waned the past several months however. Got sick to death of it as I'm sure many others did.

    So was I. As for the violence, unjust acts occur every day because people lack the "power," the competence, or the motivation to effect the opposite --however, I won't be doling out vigilante justice any time soon.

    the media wanted her blood, and wanted everyone else to desire the same, and it didn't go their way i wonder what white girl murder will oversaturate the news next.

    The St. Thomas part is true at least. Article #2 has a lot of assorted info.

    @NerdGirl: No one knows who is paying him (or I haven't caught up with the right articles yet). Casey has no assets.
