Jose Baez was reprimanded by Judge Perry on Saturday and then again today. He will most likely get sanctions as well as a report to the Florida Bar from Judge Perry . He will most likely get this for his second offense of not revealing to the prosecution what a witness was planning to discuss on the stand.
While Jose Baez may have to pay thousands of dollars and may possibly lose his license, or at worse scenario end up in jail for a short period of time, it may not even matter to him in the long run.
The reason I say that is because this case has already made him a Super Star. Jose Baez will probably make millions from a book deal, speaking engagement, a film deal, and will probably end up being a legal analyst for one of the national stations.
The national media loves Jose and are lenient on him. He also comes across very well on camera. He speaks well in smooth tones and is articulate . He also presents himself well on camera and dresses well.
The reason I say he will probably get a major TV career is because TV loves the infamous with controversy. It brings in a lot eyeballs . Love him or hate him, people will watch him. Those that love him will watch him because they love him and those who hate him will watch him because they hate him. In addition he has a TV mentor, Geraldo Rivera whyo can help his career as well.
In TV land people are often rewarded for bad behavior. Look at former NY Governor Elliott Spitzer. He has his own show on CNN. Even internet genital exposer and former US Representative Anthony Weiner may get a television career as Keith Olbermann wants him on his show on Gore’s Current TV. Look at infamous “don’t call me a hooker” Rachel Uchitel who had sex with a then married Tiger Wood . She had a TV gig on an entertainment show and is now gunning for a reality show where she is a PI.
If we take it further back in the day, Johnny Cochran “if the glove don’t fit you must acquit” OJ fame got his own TV show where he was paired up with former Atlanta prosecutor Nancy Grace on Court TV. Johnny of course died of a brain tumour and Nancy flourishes on her own shown on HLN.
So,as far as Jose Baez is concerned there is no reason for him to worry in my view, because he will come out ahead financially, careerwise, and celebrity wise. www.drlillianglass.com
