Casey The Trial is Starting Monday at 9 A.M.

The parting last words of Judge  Blevin Perry, Jr. were that he has a jury of eleven and while he will continue with the prospective fresh fifty tomorrow, he would’ve liked to have had more seated at this point. He continued to say that the trial will be starting with whatever they have come Monday morning at 9 A.M.

After eight days of jury selection, it has ended with twelve actually being seated.

One prospected juror was most likely shocked as he was admonished and assessed a fine for contempt of court for violating 3.830, which was not to discuss the matter. He was on the cell phone talking to someone about trying to get out of jury duty. He was fined no jail time but a stiff fine of $450.00, the juror agreed to pay the fine in monthly installments of $50. 00 per month by the 10th of each month. If this person does not pay for the contempt of court charge he will be arrested and will serve jail time! 

This judge is setting his rule in his court room. Further news, according to the Orlando Setinel about 50 passes per day will be given out to the general public. The general public can begin lining up at 5:30 A.M. for the first come first serve tickets. They will follow strict rules once in the court room. The trial is expected to last anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks.

The family and friends of Casey Anthony will be able to sit in a section behind her but the media has the entire first rows as well as the upper balcony of the courtroom.

There are two areas that will be designated free-speech zones where protestors can assemble to protest Casey Anthony.

Well, at the time of this writing, court is on lunch recess but will return around the 1 P.M. hour for continued juror selection.

Will continue to post any new developments as this case moves forward toward Monday morning.

Just my thoughts, just my opinions, and always in a Conversationaltone.

  1. I’m glad that it is settled on the start date. I do wonder if this has been a game with the defense or a wise strategy on their part to keep using their strikes just when it looks like there’s 12 to swear in. Now they are out of strikes so they get what they get.

  2. We now have 12?

  3. no – still 11

    • Hey there Kim! In one written version it has Judge Blevin stating that he has ended day 8 with 11 prospective jurors, and then in a video version Judge Blevin states that he’d have liked to have seated 18 w/alternates being part of that and then he says the 1st 12 to have them sworn and seated with alternates today. Not sure if it was that he meant after lunch recess because he goes on to say that whatever we have today is what we are going with and that the trial starts Monday morning at 9 A.M. I’ll see if I can get some more info. Thanks!

  4. I will believe the Trial starts Monday at 9:00 AM when it actually starts till that time I won’t hold my Breath, anything can change between now and Monday.
    I will try to stay positive 🙂

  5. You are so right, Hilde! Now the court is in recess until tomorrow morning at 8:30 am. No reason was given. InSession says that the matter was discussed in chamber between lawyers and HHJP and that Mason discussed it with CA. ~sigh~
