The defense team finally dressed Casey in black. Now in my view, the jury won’t be distracted by her manipulative outfits in baby colors to give the illusion of innocence. Black says she is in mourning( even though it is not for Casey but for herself) and says she is taking this seriously and is no longer the little party girl. But they missed the fact she needs black pants not gray. Gray is a horrible color for someone to wear who is on trial for their life. It is drab and depressing. So her teams needs to go get her black pants to go with the black top .
She also needs to lose the swishy butt swager when she walks into of and out the courtroom especially if she wants to rid herself of the part girl image.
Also she needs to loose the Snooki do. Snooki do says party girl and subconsciously that will be picked up with her hair do in my view so she needs to stop with the hair teasing in front.. She needs to stick to one hairstyle and leave it at that. When a jury sees her changing up her do they won’t like it and think she is being too self absorbed with her appearance.
As soon as the proceeding began for jury selection on Day 9, Judge Perry was very friendly to Jose Baez. He seemed very happy to see him and had a warm lilt in his voice and a smile directed towards Baez. So any talk that the judge doesn’t like Baez and is being biased isn;t accurate. He seemed genuinely happy to see Baez.
As soon as Baez opened his mouth he didn’t sound like his peppy self on Day 9. He seemd a bit monotone which was out of character for him. When attorney Fryer got up in court and told Judge Perry that he couldn’t swear in the jury separate from the alternates, he let her have it with his brilliance and knowledge.He was very polite to her whens he finished and complimented her on having done a good job.
While Jeff Ashton is an accomplished attorney, he needs to slow down when he speaks and flow out his tone and stop speaking in such a staccato tone. Even the judge tells him to slow down all the time. When he sounds so choppy it is alienating. That is no doubt why one of the perspective male 42 year old jurist, got so defensive with him. The juror did not get defensive towards Linda Drane Burdick. If Jeff Ashton doesn’t want to alienate jurors and witnesses, he needs to change his tone and only use his staccato and hostile sounding tone when he wants to stress a point. Otherwise it does not make him likeable. He needs to use that tone with Cindy Anthony when she starts her shenanigans or with George ans Lee.
Personally I think there may be a dramatic change in Cindy and George and Lee’s testimony and in their demeanor. I do’;t think they will allow themselves to be used as mitigating factors. I can’t imagine that they will admit to sexually molesting or abusing Casey or Caylee. After George and Cindy hear the details and the other;s testimony as they sit in the courtroom they may have a different perspective.
Casey appeared to have more of a wide eyed distant stare today as she listened to the jurors. I don’t know if she is on medication or not but she appeared to look a little zoned out. At least she was not having an anxiety attack.
While we have all seen the hair of Casey playing with the front of her hair, she has now graduated to playing with her very long pony tail. This may very well we out of nervousness. That is why she needs to keep her hair back in a bun so she can stop fiddling with it an distracting jurors. When she plays with her hair it makes jurors think that she is self absorbed and superficial as she seems to be overly concerned about her appearance. As we discovered, that will be one of her mitigating factors- her being raised to be concerned with outward appearances. If that is the case maybe all the hair grooming will work in her favor. But it can go either way. Jurors may or may not not buy it.
And last but not least Casey was NOT crying as reported by mainstream media. She simply touched each respective eye for less than second after she stood up when the court was recessed. There were no tears at that time.
