Judge Stan Strickland, who was presiding over Casey Anthony’s murder trial, removed himself from the case Monday. The defense team, headed by Jose Biaz, contended he was biased against their client, Casey Anthony. Baez is basing his claim on alleged correspondence between Judge Strickland and a local blogger. The Judge allegedly commented to the blogger that he liked his writing. The Judge has not denied the claim by the defense team.
In an Order recusing himself from the high-profile murder trial, Judge Strickland stated: “Over the past 20-plus months, in between media interviews, guest appearances on television shows and press conferences, defense counsel has filed a litany of motions.” In a jab at Baez and his entire team the judge stated, “At its core, the defense counsel’s motion accuses the undersigned of being a ‘self-aggrandizing media hound.’ Indeed. The irony is rich.” The case has been reassigned to Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. This Sunday at 8:00 p.m., I will discuss this development on my radio show with guests who have tried cases under both judges. I will have the very latest in the Casey Anthony Case. Don’t miss it!!!
