Nancy Grace gigs Atlanta criminal defense lawyer Ray Giudice, as usual, asking of Casey Anthony might blame “Dingo dogs or Martians next.”
But Giudice bobs and weaves, tries a winning smile, then lays blame at the feet of Jose Baez.
“What we’re seeing,” says Giudice, one our top sponsors at The Bald Truth,’ “is an incompetent defense team. Their experts aren’t prepared, Their direct exams are sloppy, and as we all know, a sloppy direct can lead to a devastating cross.”
The same thing happened in a Los Angeles courtroom 15 years ago, only there, it was the O.J. Simpson prosecutors who asked questions without knowing the answers. Like, “Have you worn these gloves before?” Then came the famous wincing and pulling off the gloves by OJ, pretending they weren’t his gloves.
To hear Ray tell it, in Casey’s case, prosecutors are “eviscerating” the Casey defense, and he thinks they would be nuts to let her testify, and set her up for what could be the most withering cross in TV history.
Much safer for the defense to keep her muzzled and down on the farm, even it means boring TV.
All this begs the Will Casey testify question. No way, says Giudice. “If a lawyer can’t control his own expert witnesses, and his client is a pathological liar, how could he possibly control her…..?
“Putting Casey on the stand would be suicidal,” he says.
