If you go over to the Orange County Clerk of Courts you can find all the cases related to anyone searchable by name. For Casey Marie Anthony there are three instances. Two of them are from 2003 and 2004 and are both traffic violations. No biggie, particularly for someone young. The last one, which is listed with her full name has to do with this one. There is a bunch of legalese which means I only understand a little bit of it but toward the bottom are the recent pertinent facts which are that on July 31st the psychiatric/mental evaluation was filed and today a written plea of not guilty (pertaining to the charges filed today) was entered. If one of you kind folks can put it all in plain english that would be cool.
I do know it shows her first court appearance is going to be on 8/21/2008 at 8:45AM

Casey Anthony’s Attorney has filed subpeonas for Facebook as well as MySpace according to WFTV in Orlando. I have no idea what for right now but Casey did have a presence on both sites and possibly some of the deleted comments may have something he can use.
Nancy Grace is on so I guess I will catch up on some of that. They are showing the pictures of Casey partying that we all saw on the net a week ago. Old news…
Update – August 5th 2008 4:42PM
As I mentioned earlier, Florida State prosecutors have formally filed charges against Casey Anthony. The charges are Child Neglect and Filing a False Statement. Filing a False Statement is a misdemeanor which can carry up to a year in jail time but the child neglect is a felony. She could face up to five years on that one.
The Orlando Sentinel has the following to say:
The State Attorney’s Office issued the charges after reviewing the evidence and statements collected so far by detectives with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
“While the State understands the importance of this information to the community, this office does not want to create the type of publicity that would lead to a change of venue. Therefore, we will not comment further on the case itself,” in statement released by the State Attorney’s Office.
Personally I think this is more of a feint on the part of the state to try and get Anthony to give them whatever information she is withholding in the disappearance of her daughter, who would be turning three this coming Saturday.
In other related news is the fact that the Anthonys are advertising for two personal assistants:
The two un-paid positions, one person to help Lee Anthony and another to assist George Anthony, are being advertised by the family via their MySpace pages.
Volunteers must be available 24-hours a day, seven days a week and in some cases must be willing to travel.
George Anthony wants his personal assistant to coordinate volunteer efforts, which means checking emails, distributing fliers locally and nationally, and scheduling volunteers.
The story over at the Orlando Sentinel comes across as pretty snarky. Basically they are looking for a couple of volunteers to help out in the search for Caylee Anthony. And maybe get donuts I guess.
Lee Anthony’s assistant is needed to travel within Orlando and possibly out of state, the ad states. Running errands, scheduling meetings, updating Web pages and answering emails are part of the job.
Both must have a valid driver’s license, reliable transportation and work with “little or no supervision.”
“This is a jack-of-all-trades position that may be cross utilized in all aspects of the search for Caylee as well as any personal need of the Anthony family, as directed by Lee Anthony,” according to the ad.
They are also looking for volunteers to help man a tent they have at the Publix to hand out materials and fliers so if you are interested in helping out and have a bunch of free time, there you go. Heck, I would love to get involved if I didn’t have children to feed and a house payment to make.
Also…There may be a hearing in the next 24 hours. Casey Antohy’s defense team (Jose Baez) is likely to ask for a hearing where prosecutors would be forced to reveal the evidence they have gathered against Casey Anthony.
It can’t be a hell of a lot considering the charges they have filed. If they had any more damning information they would have charged her with more serious crimes.
More updates as I hear them…
Update – August 5th 2008 3:40PM
Formal charges have been brought against Casey Anthony. I will have the full information shortly.
Update – August 4th 2008 10:23PM
Apparently Jose Baez, the attorney for Casey Anthony has also had some informal discussions with law enforcement about limited immunity for the mother. Is this what she’s been holding out for? She kills her kid and drags everyone into her drama just to get some kind of immunity from prosecution? Hopefully if the DA’s office does promise her immunity it will only be in the instance that she didn’t actually do the deed.
Update – August 4th 2008
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department held another press conference this afternoon but didn’t have any new information in the case. They say that investigators are doing everything that they can but unless Casey Anthony is forthcoming with some kind of useful information it’s not likely that Caylee will be recovered.
Saturday is Caylee’s third birthday and while I am pretty sure that all we are going to ever recover will be her body I still hope that the child will be found safe and sound.
The Anthonys are just crazy. The only thing that they seem to be worried about is how they and their daughter look. George Anthony had nothing but criticism for the People Magazine article about Caylee. The magazine has more readers around the country that might be able to help identify the girl and they are worried about how their daughter looks in the media. Fuck how she looks. Just the fact that she let her daughter be taken already makes her look as bad as it gets. It tells me she just doesn’t care…
The original post I had been working on about Caylee has just gotten too long. I am archiving it here as well as probably going to post it over at a Crimes web site that I am working on. From here on out all future updates will appear in this thread.
Update – August 1st 2008 7:14PM
I guess law enforcement has had enough waiting for the Anthonys. CSI has decided to visit the Anthony’s house and left with a bunch of evidence.
I think it’s about past time for this. According to FOX news;
Crime scene investigators from the Orange County Sheriff’s office went to the home of George and Cindy Anthony on Friday morning, the grandparents of missing toddler Caylee, exactly two weeks after they first investigated the home.
Two investigators pulled up to the Anthony home and a short time later, another car with two more investigators arrived. George Anthony arrived at the home at the same time and unlocked the door and let investigators inside.
Investigators went to the backyard and were inside a backyard shed, where missing 2-year-old Caylee Anthony had a play area.
The investigators took some items from the shed with them and left the house. They are also expected to be releasing the DNA results form evidence gathered out of Casey Anthony’s car soon.
Cindy, George and Lee Anthony met again with investigators for six hours and of course Cindy Anthony had to share with the press again. The investigators they met with included agents from the FBI as well.
After the meeting, Cindy insisted she’s close to finding her missing granddaughter. She said she believes her daughter’s story about a mystery babysitter named Zenaida who kidnapped Caylee, and Casey is trying to lead them to her, even if she’s being less than truthful.
She’s leading you to a place, but not telling you the exact location,” she said. “Because she’s afraid if someone walks in, that something may happen to Caylee.”
She sounds as cryptic and misleading as her daughter does. Pie in the sky Law and Order scenario there. One side of me hopes beyond belief that it’s true and that they find Caylee Anthony safe and sound but having been almost two months now she is probably worm dirt.
People Magazine has featured Caylee Anthony as their cover story as of the issue that went on sale a couple of days ago.
It is also possible that Casey Anthony will get of of jail with no bond. According to Florida law a person can only be held up to 33 days on the lesser charges that she is facing without posting bond before they have to set her free. If investigators don’t charge her with something more serious in the next two weeks she gets out of jail free. If that happens there is no supervision. No monitoring.
Although an appeals court denied lowering her bond, Casey Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez is filing another appeal with the state supreme court to get her bond lowered.
Update – August 1st 2008 6:00AM
As usual I am running short on time this morning. I’ve check some of the major news channels but for the most part everything has been quiet. Casey Anthony’s mother went to an appeals court to request a lower bond for her daughter which they denied. That’s a good thing from what I have seen.
Sky News has a report up yesterday but there is no new information there. Just some pictures that everyone has probably seen by now of Casey out nightclubbing at one of her boyfriend’s clubs.
Cindy Anthony appeared on Larry King the other day. I will post some of the transcripts as I have time.
I will try to update this thread over the weekend. I actually have one off for a change and am very much looking forward to it.
This is also going to be my weekend open trackback for the first weekend of August.
