Again tomorrow, we have the continuation of the continuations from last week of the defense team for Casey Anthony’s outstanding motions, with any luck, to fete de compli.
For those whose headache has since left them, a review- For the full clickety goodness, click the pic of the bic.
Bring Your Own Dryer Sheet. Seriously, now she put them there, now she didn’t. Depends on the meds that day she says. Cindy Anthony, a surprise witness to us, and likely herself, now says SHE put dryer sheets all over the Pontiac Sunfire after it was returned from the tow yard. As Jeff Ashton pointed out during cross-examination, this is in stark contrast to her state deposition where she denied putting any dryer sheets in the unlicensed hearse.
She blames this nearly 3-year-in-the-making epiphany on the fact that one night she was sleepwalking while giving a bamboo splitting tutorial with the neighbors shovel and she accidentally fell into the shed, breaking the lock, and all 100 of George’s red gas cans not covered with sloppy duct tape hit her in the head.
Ok, that part, I made up.
She also claims to have emptied a can of Febreeze throughout the vehicle, left the vehicle trunk, sunroof, hood and all windows open within the garage and returned to work. That could definitely explain the terpenes found in the air sample of the trunk, but certainly not the chloroform.
As Dr. Vass astutely pointed out during his deposition:
” Well sure, I mean if there was a bottle of chloroform in the trunk and it was half gone, I mean, Duh.”
Mrs. Anthony informs us this has been a traumatic experience for her, and that she is still remembering things to this day. I will just bet she is. I know of one; for another article, another day.
What I found very interesting, is at no time did the prosecution object to her change in testimony, or question her comments about her claim she was on new medications that affected her memory, although Linda Drane Burdick covered this thoroughly over 2 straight days of the deposition. At no time, although clearly Cindy Anthony gave hearsay testimony regarding the curiously absent George Anthony’s activities on July 15, 2008, did the state raise the objection.
I would be concerned about why the state would not be moving to take another deposition based on her comments if I were her and her attorney, but that’s just me. The protections of the subpoena with which she gave her deposition do not extend to one perjuring oneself. (more…)
