Woman Who Allegedly Killed Her Child Also Allegedly Paid Her Lawyer With Sex

Casey Anthony, the Orlando, Florida mother who was accused of killing her two-year-old daughter Caylee in 2008 and was subsequently acquitted of the crime, is back in the headlines again.

D&A Investigations owner Dominic Casey, a private detective hired by Anthony’s high-priced defense attorney, Jose Baez, told a bankruptcy court that Anthony was broke and had to pay Baez with sexual acts.

The NYPost reports:

“A private investigator hired by Casey’s lawyer, Jose Baez, in her murder case claimed that he learned that Anthony was trading sex for legal representation after a TV show requested an interview with her that she didn’t want to do in 2008, according to the gossip website RadarOnline.

“[Baez] called the network saying they would have to take a raincheck, hung up the phone and said to Casey: ‘You now owe me three blowjobs,’ ” according to PI Dominic Casey, who Radar says gave the sworn testimony in January as part of a bankruptcy case.”

“The misconduct between Casey and Jose escalated,” the PI told the court, adding that he once “witnessed a naked Casey’’ run from Baez’s private chambers.

According to an affidavit obtained by RadarOnline, the detective went on to say, “That night, I told her that she cannot allow him to continue engaging in this behavior. … Casey told me she had to do what Jose said because she had no money for her defense.”

“I reminded her that Baez had more than enough money from the network he sold the photographs to pay for her defense,” said the P.I. “Casey apologized and assured me it would not happen again.”

Though Anthony was found not guilty in 2011 for putting her two-year-old daughter in the trunk of her car after drugging her with chloroform and duct-taping her mouth shut, she was convicted on four counts of providing false information to the police. Two of those misdemeanors were overturned. She was released with credit for time-served on July 17, 2011.
