Nancy Grace Recap

Casey's lead attorney, Jose Baez, was reprimanded for attempting to slip Casey contraband at the jail. Said contraband was a memorial bracelet saying, "Forever In Our Hearts". The bracelet was hidden in socks that Baez brought to the jail, part of Casey's court costume. It appears that Baez is trying to say he didn't know anything about the bracelet, leading to speculation that perhaps Cindy had hidden it in the sock.

Although Casey was served with the 29 question deposition in the civil case by Zenaida Gonzales, with 30 days to respond, she has thus far refused to answer, pleading her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Rumors are that Lee will also refuse to respond. The Anthony family attorneys are also requesting that the results of the depositions not be released.

George Anthony, who had been in a psychiatric ward after sending despondent text messages indicating that he didn't live to two people he was very close to (which did not include his wife, Cindy), has left the original hospital and is allegedly going to a hospital closer to his home in Orlando. Going into week two of his hospital stay, he is doing this voluntarily, no longer under the Baker 72 hour hold. The Anthony Family attorney said that George has a long recovery time ahead.

Is the memorial finally scheduled at The First Baptist Church in Orlando for next Tuesday? The church has not confirmed, but it is a huge church, with seating for 5000 and would be an appropriate venue for a public memorial.

Why the delay on the trial? The trial date was originally set for March. That date was set before Caylee's skeletal remains were found, forcing the prosecutors to reconstruct the entire case, due to the new forensic evidence with the finding of the remains. A trial date will likely be determined at a status hearing scheduled for the end of February.
