Dr. Drew is off doing another show right now, called Dr. Drew airing weeknights on HLN at 9p.m. ET/PT. Over the last few weeks he has been concentrating on the Casey Anthony trial, and has brought experts on his show to talk about the latest news on the Casey Anthony trial. I am planning on following Dr. Drew and what the experts say and report back to you.
In case you don’t know, Casey Anthony is charged with seven counts; first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. Casey’s daughter, Caylee’s remains were found in 2008.
On June 20th show, Dr. Drew asked the two experts, Hemu Nigam, a former Sex Crimes Prosecutor if he thought Casey could walk free based on the defense’s latests testimony.
“No, I don’t. And I think what I’m seeing from the defense side is they’re starting to recognize that. And because of that reason, they’re attacking anything and everything they possibly can. If we can’t get her off on first degree, maybe it’ll be second. If it’s not second, maybe we’ll get aggravated. If we can’t get aggravated, we’ll confuse the jury so much that at least we’ll get a hung jury and we’ll get to do it all over again,” said Nigam.
Mark Eiglarsh, Criminal Defense Attorney, explained where he thinks the defense will go from here:
“They are going to continue to argue whatever theory they’ve advanced in opening, but they’re going to hammer home the point that [the prosecution] still [has] not proven what they’ve alleged — first degree murder by premeditated design — that the prosecution came up with a theory that the evidence fits with, but it also fits with a lot of other theories. And who gets the benefit? The liar,” said Eiglarsh.
