1. In your jurisdiction, if you are charged with a state crime, will the state’s discovery in your case be accessible as a public record, like the “document dumps” made famous in the Casey Anthony case?
2. In your jurisdiction, if you or a family member is charged with a state crime, what are your protections against people going through your trash and demonstrating in front of your home 24/7, as occurred at the Anthony family home after Casey Anthony was arrested on charges of filicide?
3. If you are interviewed by the local authorities, are you being videotaped? Is that videotape available to the media? In the Anthony case, interviews were videotaped and those videotapes have been provided to the media.
4. If you visit a loved one in jail, is everything you say to them being recorded? Do visitors to jails in your locality have any expectation of privacy? In the Anthony case, everything that has been said between any family member and the prisoner has been recorded.
5. If you are charged with a crime, do you presume that everyone will respect that you are to be treated as innocent – until the government meets its burden of proof to demonstrate to a fact finder that you are guilty as charged? Is it okay with you for the public to assume you – or a loved one — are guilty when you’re charged with a crime? Many members of the public have already judged Casey Anthony, even though there has been no trial.
