Caylee/Casey Anthony Case: Mock Trial On CBS- They Got The Mock Part Right- CBS Footing Bill For Richard Gabriel Defense Jury Consultant

Orlando, FL-

On Saturday evening, Central Broadcasting Service, the second major affiliate to pay  Anthony family members for “licensing”, $20,000  for the 48 hours segments, aired what was labeled as a pseudo mock trial with a pseudo mock jury.

Ready To Mix. Add Cash, Stir.

CBS 48 Hours also  STATES THEY COMMISSIONED the focus group.  Are we clear on that?  CBS has outright admitted to contributing to the costs of the defense expenditures of Casey Anthony.  That is a source of income to this defendant, period.

It was not until one tuned into the program that we learn what was billed as a mock trial of sorts, whereby previews show jurors would acquit Casey Anthony based on the evidence to date, of 1st degree murder, that this is actually a “focus group” where the moderator, Richard Gabriel, President of Decision Analysis, actually works for the Anthony defense team.

Bio Excerpt:

Richard Gabriel: President

Photo Credit CBS 48 hours

Richard Gabriel is the President of Decision Analysis. Since 1985, Mr. Gabriel has been a leader in the field of jury research, jury selection, and litigation communication in nearly a thousand trials in both the civil and criminal arenas across the country.  Mr. Gabriel has assisted counsel in the O.J. Simpson, Heidi Fleiss, Phillip Spector, Enron Broadband, and Whitewater trials, and is currently working with attorneys in the Casey Anthony matter. Three cases he has participated in have resulted in United States Supreme Court rulings.

Judge Perry denied Jose Baez’s request for payment to Richard Gabriel as a jury consultant to the defense.  In some fashion, we must assume he is paid.

I say that facetiously- this man is the Jack Welch of jury consulting and influence.  During the broadcast, host Troy Roberts discloses that CBS is footing the bill, as a thinly veiled disclosure of sorts. (more…)

Speaking on the condition of anonymity to blinkoncrime.com, a source inside the investigation has confirmed within the release is the latest interview by OCSO of Joy Wray.

Ms. Wray is said to have told investigators that she was in the woods on July 18, 2008 searching for Caylee Marie Anthony and has the photos to prove it.

When OCSO investigators requested Ms. Wray surrender her laptop computer to retrieve the original image raw files, among other source information Ms. Wray revealed, she headed to BestBuy to have the hard drive erased prior to her interview, which would reveal the dates on the photos had been added by her.

Detectives were tipped off by a savvy Geek Squadder and when Joy arrived to retrieve her blank computer and copy of it’s former contents, they were waiting for her.  Joy sniffed out the Five O, and turned on her heels out the door without the computer; only to be interviewed by Detective John Allen in her lawyers office about the incident, shortly thereafter.

Ms. Wray has been baker acted 6 times, and claims to be friends with and corresponding with former President George W Bush on the Caylee Anthony case.

The discovery is also expected to include interviews with members of Texas Equusearch, as a follow up to statements by Laura Buchanan and Joseph Jordan.

The discovery has been received and is being reviewed, check back to blinkoncrime.com for updates.
