Lorena Baez is the wife of renowned defense lawyer, Jose Baez. It is not good news for her hubby and certainly not for Lorena Baez whose husband, is being accused of having *** with former client, Casey Anthony in exchange for his legal services!
Court documents filed in Florida say Casey Anthony allegedly told her lawyer she killed her daughter and then traded *** with him over legal services. Baez represented Casey Anthony, who was acquitted in 2011 of her daughter’s murder.
Lorena Baez’s husband quickly issued a statement through social media, basically saying it is not true. Jose Baez wrote “I unequivocally and categorically deny exchanging *** for legal services with Ms. Anthony,” “I further unequivocally and categorically deny having any sexual relationship with Ms. Anthony whatsoever.”
You might recall Casey Anthony as the woman who, was arrested in 2008 for child neglect after her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, went missing. The child was last seen on June 16, but authorities weren’t notified until a month later. Little Caylee Anthony’s body was later found near the family’s home in Orlando.
The recent allegations accusing Baez, come from private investigator Dominic Casey and are laid out in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing submitted to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Tampa in April. The private investigator used to worked for Baez and detailed in the documents how he once found Anthony naked in Baez’s office. Casey “told (Anthony) that she cannot allow (Baez) to continue engaging in this behavior,” the investigator wrote in the affidavit. “Casey told me she had to do what Jose said because she had no money for her defense.” ABC News published the court documents here.
Baez, a NY native, joined the U.S. Navy in 1986 and spent three years assigned in connection with NATO at Norfolk, Virginia, trained as an intelligence analyst, and held a Top Secret security clearance.
