Saturday Smack Down at Tot Mom Murder Trial

Saturday Smack Down at Tot Mom Murder Trial

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)


As court proceedings were set to begin in the tot mom murder trial Saturday morning, things came to a screeching halt as a result of a witness being called by the defense that had not properly been deposed by the prosecution prior to their testimony.

Judge Melvin Perry verbally reprimanded Jose Baez for not following procedure.  Judge Perry told Baez, Lightening never strikes twice, so there better be no more surprises. "  Today`s proceedings were supposed to begin with a discussion about a possible jury sequestration violation. 

Another controversy that is gaining momentum is the seemingly flippant nature of the Anthony jury. Throughout the Casey Anthony murder trial, the jury has seemed uninterested in the case at times and more interested in where they are going to eat, special breaks and when the trial will be over.

One court spectator was quoted as saying that special breaks " is code for I need a smoke " and on more than one occasion laughter could be heard coming from the jury room.  

Please stay tuned to The SOP News Network for breaking news in the Casey Anthony Tot Mom " murder trial....
