Casey Anthony's lawyer Jose Baez talks about the trial, the verdict and "The Casey Anthony reality show"
"I could immediately tell she was a first-timer," Baez told Crimesider.
But while she may not have looked like a hardened criminal, the petite Florida mother's case would prove the most challenging of his career. Soon, Anthony would be charged with murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. And prosecutors wanted the death penalty.
For the next three years, Baez's life would be consumed with the Anthony trial. He was lampooned as an amateur in the media, but Baez had the last laugh: on July 5, 2011, a jury pronounced his client not guilty of murder.
On the anniversary of Anthony's acquittal, Baez sat down with Crimesider to discuss the case and the untold stories he reveals in his new book, "Presumed Guilty - Casey Anthony: The Inside Story."
