Do you think that José Baez has been using Casey as a ‘means to his end?’ It wouldn’t be the first time that someone has used another person for their own gain. This can get a bit risky if a manipulator doesn’t realize that the one he has been using was manipulating him all the while. Sometimes the consequences can be devastating. If a verdict of “guilty of murder in the first degree” is read, we may see some dire repercussions.
Casey has been blinded by José from the beginning and it is possible that she has some romantic fantasy about her attorney. Goodness knows what Baez has led Casey to believe in their jail conversations. Rarely do we see a client spending most of the day at their attorney’s office as Casey did when she was out on bond.
José was on a Spanish talk show recently and he admitted that this case has brought him a lot of publicity. I believe he used the word ‘promotion.’
What do you think will happen to Baez when this trial is over? Do you think he will still go on lawyering or end up on some tv talk show as it’s host. I think he would make a perfect stand-up comedian. He could try to explain all the smells that come from trash, impersonate a lawyer or forensic scientist and get a few laughs.
Baez had the opportunity to convince his client to plea when the DP was off the table and, at that time, the remains had not been found.
Do you think Baez is a leech or an attorney honestly trying to get Casey off these murder charges? Do you think he will just become a nobody without Casey to hold him up? Casey has been like his security blanket in more ways than one. Notice the nice clothes that Baez wears now, compared to when he first started out.
The following song reminds me of what Casey may sing to Baez when this is all over.
