The Casey Anthony trial is literally too close to home. The Orlando court house is about a mile from my house.
I grabbed my camera and a friend and went downtown today to have lunch and check it out
We ended up having lunch with Casey Anthony's Attorney Jose Baez! Well kind of, you will just have to hold on and I will tell you the story
First, excuse the brief break from my regularly scheduled DIY posts. Heck, I keep forgetting this is my blog and I have wanted to get your opinions on this trial for a while.
Since this case started I have been riveted to every snippet of news I could get. I have told my friends I feel like I am sequestered with the jury. Living in Orlando everyone knows someone associated with the case.
I have a friend that worked with her as a nurse, and yet another friend who was on the Mock trial for Anthony featured on the 48 hours news show.
All the major news stations have built temporary studios on scaffolding across the street from the court house
News trucks line the street
Me, waiting to host Court TV (Just kidding)
This is where Nancy Grace reports her "Bomb Shell" program from her studio on wheels
50 tickets for the trial are handed out each day at 4pm. I was there at noon and 30 people were lined up. I could have waited in line for a ticket to tomorrows trial, but it was 200 degrees in the shade today (Well almost)
We hung around as the trial let out at noon.

The State Attorneys....Hum, I should have been quicker with the camera!
Casey Anthony's defense team
Here's two ladies that really enjoyed their time in court today, maybe the lady on the right is just upset because her pants are sticking in her crotch
After all of the excitement was over my girlfriend and I went across the street to have lunch. The restaurant was loaded with local news personalities. We were just finishing our lunch when my girlfriend who was staring at the door, started to make noises, I was looking at her like "What's the matter with you!"
Yep, you guessed it, 3 feet away from our table they seated the defense team.
So, we ordered dessert and stared while trying to eavesdrop.
This trial is the primary topic of conversation in Orlando.
I was wondering if there is a lot of news coverage on this trial where you live? Did it make international news?
I would love to know if you think Casey Anthony is:
Guilty or Innocent?
Will she do jail time or walk?
What do you think happened to this sweet little angel, Caylee?
