Attorney Files A Motion For A Gag Order

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The attorney for the mother of a missing toddler filed a gag order Monday to prevent the release of phone calls made from jail.

The motion filed by Jose Baez seeks to put a stop to the media release of phone calls made from jail, 911 calls made by family and videotaped visitations between Casey Anthony and her family. Baez will ask a judge at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the state attorney's office.

Casey Anthony is being held on $500,000 bond at the Orange County Jail on charges of child neglect in connection with the disappearance of her daughter Caylee Anthony.

My Bottled Up Thoughts!

We have the "Sunshine Law" here in Florida where the public has the right to public access.

Let's face it, when Hulk Hogan's son was in jail and his parents went to visit him, the media had a free for all with all the taped and video conversations. The media ripped apart, piece by piece every word between the family.

Casey is no different then anyone else. Normally the general public who gets arrested don't have their conversations aired on TV. But in a high profile case like this one, it's public information.

The Anthony's (all of them) clearly are being ignorant to the fact that phone conversations between an inmate and the person they are speaking to are being taped!

It's only a few months ago that the big "hoopla" went on with Hulk Hogan and his son. It was aired everywhere including the local news in Florida.

And let's be real here, Geroge Anthony is a former cop/detective or whatever he was, he knows phone conversations are taped.

Well, let's not forget when Cindy was at the bond hearing and she stated it would be 10% of whatever the bond was that was what she needed to come up with. The prosecutor asks her "how do you know this" and Cindy responds "I watch TV".

So ignornance of the law especially with a former cop in the household just doesn't hold up!

I hope the court denies the motion for the gag order based on the "Sunshine Law".
