Casey Anthony: Deception Continues in Court

Fraud and deception continue...file bankruptcy before signing on the dotted line...

Casey Anthony: I'm flat broke

TAMPA, Fla. — Casey Anthony filed for bankruptcy in Florida on Friday, claiming about $1,100 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities.
Court records show that Anthony, who was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in 2011, sought Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in federal court in Tampa.
Her listed debts include $500,000 for attorney fees and costs for her criminal defense lawyer during the trial, Jose Baez; $145,660 for the Orange County Sheriff's office for a judgment covering investigative fees and costs related to the case; $68,540 for the Internal Revenue Service for taxes, interest and penalties; and $61,505 for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for court costs.

The filling also states that she is a defendant in several civil suits, including one brought by Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez for defamation in Orange County Circuit Court.
Fernandez-Gonzalez claims her reputation was damaged by Anthony telling detectives that a baby sitter by the same name kidnapped Caylee. The detectives were investigating the 2008 disappearance of the girl, who later was found dead. Anthony's attorney said details offered by Anthony did not match Fernandez-Gonzalez and clearly showed Anthony wasn't talking about her.
Court papers list Anthony as unemployed, with no recent income.
An attorney for Anthony, David Schrader, did not immediately respond to messages from the Associated Press.
Anthony lists about 80 creditors in the 60-page court filing. The claims largely cover fees for legal, medical, psychiatric and forensics consulting or services. But one claim covers a debt for scuba diving services.
According to the courts, the aim of seeking Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection is to be discharged of most existing debts — essentially to obtain a fresh financial start. A trustee may have the right to take possession of and sell non-exempt property and use the sale proceeds to pay creditors, but Anthony lists little in the way of assets. A debtor may still be held responsible for some obligations, such as taxes and student loans.
The filing came on the same day that a Florida appellate court set aside two of the four convictions she faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her missing daughter.
Though Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee, jurors convicted her of four counts of lying to detectives, and her attorneys appealed those convictions. Anthony was sentenced to time served for the misdemeanors.
She was sentenced to a year of probation after her release from jail for an unrelated case. For her protection, her whereabouts have been kept secret since she was released from state supervision last year

I find it unfair for anyone to unload court and attorney fees by filing bankruptcy - you commit a crime, get fined, and you can just write it off? Ridiculous.

We'll see if Fla. judges let it go. They have already let her slide with so much, it wouldn't surprise me.

This should be interesting. I wonder if she knows that the 341 Meeting of Creditors is an open meeting and an investigation of her income and sources will be questioned. Plus I don't think court restitution is dischargable and most IRS taxes are not dischargable (depending on the time periodtime period and whether she filed taxes for the years in question. The bankruptcy trustee and U.S. Trustee have the option of investigating. This should be VERY interesting.

I don't think KC has filed taxes in since she had Caylee. I think the parents are supporting her now from all the money they made from Caylee's murder. They'll probably have to continue to support her as she has no education,and hasn't made any effort to get one. Who in their right mind would hire her?

No, Casey cannot discharge her restitution fines or her taxes (based on that $250,000 she got for selling photos of Caylee) in bankruptcy. Also, Zenaida's attorneys are likely to object to the discharge of their pending civil claim for defamation, which is based on an injury caused by Casey's willful and malicious conduct. As far as attorney's fees, well, that's why good criminal defense attorneys make sure their fees get paid up front (like the first $250,000 from selling photos of Caylee.) A good basic discussion about what debts cannot be discharged in bankruptcy can be found here:

In my opinion, the primary underlying motivation to file bankruptcy wasn't about debts but rather to get the protection of the Automatic Stay to avoid being forced to answer questions about what happened to Caylee. As explained in this article,

"In the moment when a voluntary Bankruptcy case is filed under any Chapter of the Bankruptcy Code the automatic stay goes into effect. ... The stay prohibits any act to obtain money or other property, whether real estate or personal property from a debtor. All law suits must stop. ... The stay is the equivalent of an injunction. An injunction is a court order prohibiting or commanding some action."

Casey has been allowed to refuse to answer Zenaida Gonzalez' attorneys' questions about what happened to Caylee on the theory that her 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination remained in effect pending her appeal of her convictions for false information to law enforcement. That particular legal protection expired last week when the appellate court issued its decision and Casey was going to be thoroughly questioned under oath by Zenaida's attorneys.

Now, the defamation lawsuit is automatically stayed, including discovery like depositions or interrogatories. The trial date must be vacated (cancelled). I expect Zenaida's lawyers to file various pleadings with the bankruptcy court, like a motion for relief from the automatic stay, a motion to determine dischargeability/non-dischargeability, and/or an adversary proceeding, but all of that will take a long time. And we have all seen that DELAY is the name of Casey' game.

I noticed that Casey Anthony has a new attorney named Andy Chmelir. Does this mean "Foghorn Leghorn" Mason et al have finally cut all ties with her?

Casey Anthony Declares Bankruptcy, Reconciles with Her Dad
By Steve Helling

01/27/2013 at 06:30 PM EST

Anthony – one of the most reviled criminal defendants in recent memory – has been living in a condo in Cape Canaveral, Fla., since late last year. In addition to regular contact with her mother, she has also reconciled with her father, George, who she previously accused of molesting her. (The condo was actually leased by George Anthony for his daughter to live in. The family attorney, Mark Lippman, had no comment.),,20668533,00.html%20…


This is My Opinion but I have always believed George [and Cindy] each had a ROLE to play in their PERFORMANCE at the trial ... they knew good and well what they were doing ...

A "reconciliation" between Casey and George ?

Nah ... they have always been in touch ... just the same as Cindy and Casey have always been in touch ...

They scammed a lot of people into believing that George hated Casey ...

All for the luv of money ...

Would like to hear from Peter on this !

Thanks !

Hi MizzMarple-

I agree with you totally...I have always believed that the Anthony's, meaning George, Cindy, Lee and Casey, conspired with Baez to create the 'defense'...which was basically...'something really F'ed up is going on with this family'. There was never any rift between Casey and was an all in strategy to provide an alternate suspect and plant some doubt within in the jury. I caught on pretty early when Cindy offered testimony under direct examination and then when called by the defense, they actually displayed pictures of the exact earlier testimony with the defense's spin (kind of like, 'see, it's just like I said, but not the way the prosecutors are trying to make it seem').

Any doubt I may have had was erased when Baez called Lee Anthony to directly refute the testimony that Baez just called Cindy Anthony to give (regarding whether or not she sent the private investigators to search the area below their house). At that point I said to my husband...'I hope the Pros. can see that they are all in cahoots and they use their rebuttal case to present the phone records and evidence that can refute this family's lies'. Sadly we all know the outcome...while they did prove the obvious to anyone with a brain, the disgraceful 12 decided they didn't want to do any thinking or work...if it wasn't spoon fed to them, then they weren't going to convict

I didn't follow Caylee's murder investigation, it sounds frustrating… hopefully justice will be served to her murderer.

Maybe the DA's should hire Peter and use his analysis too help persuade juries.
