In a twist worthy of a straight-to-DVD movie-of-the-week, local attorney-idjit Jose Baez surprises the Orange County Court administrating the Casey Anthony murder trial with a pleading of insanity, but not for his client or his over-aged co-counsel.
During an emergency hearing Friday evening, Mr. Baez demonstrated several signs of disorientation and confusion. As prosecutor Jeff Ashton explained his motion and the reason for the hearing, Mr. Baez spun in his chair and twirled his pen as if performing in a high school talent show. When invited by Judge Perry to orate his side of the argument, Mr. Baez began by stating he was not even sure why he was at the podium.
“‘I quite frankly don’t know why we’re here,’ Baez told Judge Perry after the state put forth their reason for wanting the hearing.” – http://www.wftv.com/news/26089105/detail.html
As his rambling continued, his co-counsel Cheney Mason sweated profusely and conferred with his client. Upon Mr. Baez’s announcement he was speaking about a case which had 350+ expert witnesses listed by the prosecution, Mr. Mason was seen to write furiously on his legal pad, stopping only once to mumble to himself. One short note later to Judge Perry led to an immediate order for the court to recess. Mr. Mason was seen sprinting to Judge Perry’s private chambers for what is assumed to be a private conference.
As Mr. Baez exited the courthouse, he was taken into custody by several large men in white jackets. Witnesses report they fitted him with a specially designed jacket to prevent injuries to himself or others, secured him in a white van, and sped away. Sources close to the case say the Baker Act may be involved.
Gambling establishments worldwide took a beating from the unexpected event. Las Vegas bookie Dubble Ernutting, long-time Eggtree News industry consultant, stated the odds prior to this hearing had been Mr. Mason out by dementia versus Mr. Baez finding any way of resigning from this trial by a margin of 200 to 1.
In a bizarre case, this may be the most bizarre event yet.
