Casey Anthony Probation: Don’t Mock Justice or Judge Perry?Posted: August 13, 2011
Isn’t it refreshing to have a judge, like Judge Perry in the Casey Anthony probation matter? He doesn’t mince his words in his ruling ordering Casey Anthony to begin serving her 1 year probation on the check fraud case. And, he doesn’t shy from holding attorneys accountable for their conduct.
He simply calls it like it is, “To permit the Defendant, whose counsel was well aware that probation was to begin upon the Defendant’s release from jail, to avoid serving probation now, would take a lawfully imposed sentence and make it a mockery of justice”. Could anyone have said it better?
Should we be surprised that Judge Perry would find that, “Baez (Casey’s lead defense attorney) had a duty to intervene when it was apparent his client’s sentence was not being imposed according to the judge’s orders”? Isn’t this the same attorney that the Florida State Bar deemed “unfit” to practice law and the Florida Supreme Court denied his admission for 7 years and found he had “a total lack of respect for the legal system”? Really, are you surprised?
Judge Perry simply redeems the justice system. He reminds us all of why we need judges like him. Judges who see through the “zealous” advocacy to carry out the law and uphold society’s interest in defendant’s serving probation, as it was ordered.
Simply my opinion, What Say You?
