Casey Anthony, the Florida mom who was acquitted in 2011 of killing her daughter Caylee, in is back in the spotlight and once again, her former legal troubles, and how she paid for representation specifically, are at the forefront.
Dominic Casey is a private investigator who used to work for Anthony, and according to PEOPLE magazine, in a 15-page affidavit, he’s accuses Anthony and her former attorney, Jose Baez, of having a sexual relationship that began prior to her well-publicized trial. The paperwork was filed after Dominic Casey sat down for a deposition for Anthony’s bankruptcy case, WTSP reports.
Casey claims there was one instance when he saw “a naked Casey” on a day when he stopped by Baez’s office unannounced, the PEOPLE report continued. Casey also claims that Baez told Anthony she owed him oral sex in exchange for canceling an interview.
Perhaps even more shockingly, Casey claims Baez confided that Anthony had confessed to killing two-year-old Caylee.
“Casey had murdered Caylee and dumped her body somewhere, and he needed all the help he could get to find the body before anyone else did,” Casey alleges Baez told him. According to WTSP, Casey claims Baez and Anthony wanted to pin Caylee’s murder on a family member or the meter reader who found the toddler’s body.
Baez denies any and all of Dominic Casey’s claims. In a statement released to PEOPLE, he said:
“I unequivocally and categorically deny exchanging sex for my legal services with Ms. Anthony. I further unequivocally and categorically deny having any sexual relationship with Ms. Anthony whatsoever. I have always conducted my practice consistent with the high ethical standards required of members of the Florida Bar. My representation of Ms. Anthony was no exception.”
Baez is reportedly considering legal action.
