Anthony attorney denies interview negotiations



ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The lead defense attorney in the murder trial of Casey Anthony denies reports that he is negotiating deals for a paid interview with his client.

A one-sentence statement attributed to Jose Baez and released through New York-based RMT PR Management on Friday says: “Contrary to recent published reports, I am not negotiating any paid interviews with anyone.”

Reports of interview negotiations have been rampant since Anthony’s release from jail on July 13. She was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, on July 5, but convicted of four counts of lying to police.

Anthony left the Orange County Jail with Baez and has not been seen in public since.

At least one television producer claims to have met with Baez about a paid interview.
