Casey Anthony’s Lawyer Says Florida Police ‘Tortured Her’
Casey Anthony’s lawyer says she endured too much while she was on trial for the murder of her defenseless, 2-year old daughter.
Casey Anthony’s jailers took her in shackles to a room where she was to be surprised by news coverage when police discovered her daughter’s decomposed body, a tactic that her lawyer claims in a new book was “torture.”
Attorney Jose Baez writes that police hoped to get a revealing reaction, possibly a confession, out of Anthony by shocking her with the news story and refused to let her lawyer see Anthony while this was going on.
“They sent someone to Casey’s cell,” Baez writes in his upcoming book. “They shackled her legs and hands in chains, marched her to the medical unit, sat her down where there were several correctional officers and a couple of nurses standing around watching her, and forced her to watch the breaking news that police had found Caylee’s remains so they could record her reaction.”
