Casey Anthony's Lawyer Ran a Miami Bikini Company

A model on Baez's old website leans on a thing. Everything looks sexier with a blue tint.
Lawyer Jose Baez didn't start his professional career defending capital murder cases. Before he successfully got Casey Anthony off the hook for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, he was just another guy who couldn't get admitted to the Florida Bar because he was a deadbeat dad -- the Orlando Sentinal reported Baez had a habit of not paying the $200 per month in child support he owed his first wife.

Baez said it was his choice to spend eight years not being a lawyer because he could make more money doing other things. Apparently it's way more lucrative than it sounds to intern in the Miami-Dade Public Defender's Office and import bikinis on the side.

State records show a Jose Baez incorporated Brazilian-Bikini.com, Inc. in May 2000, and list a month later a Jose A. Baez as the incorporating agent of Bon Bon Bikinis, based on the 2400 block of SW 27th Avenue in Miami.

Brazilian-bikini.com has been defunct for years, but archives of the site show the company described itself as "makers of authentic handmade Brazilian bikinis." As far as this reporter can tell, a Brazilian bikini is a regular bikini, except one's butt cheeks hang out all over the place.

Suits cost $40 and were "made with the finest fabrics and with the attention to detail you deserve." If Baez used the same attention to detail as he did coming up with weird red herrings in court the past few weeks, those must have been some sturdy little bathing suits. It appears they had a lifetime warranty too, which is a big commitment coming from a guy who makes a living pulling people out of electric chairs.

I dont see any sin in that lawyer having a bikini company...What is the relation with the killing of the girl? Two different stories: one, he is defending the killer; the other one is owning a bikini company...

To those who are upset about the Anthony verdict, all I can say is: What do you expect from a state that elected Rick Scott, a corrupt thief, as their governor?

Jose Baez is only out for himself. I think he and Casey (KILLER)  Anthony should hook up......and maybe that is the plan. He was so unprofessional with her.....hands all over her. He even was told at the jail to lay-off. What a creep!!!! He does not want Anthony back with her family in any way as it would make all his 'crap' accusations look bad. He ia as sneaky and creepy as she is. She cannot hide forever and all I can hope is she feels the hurt & pain that that tiny little angel felt. Rest in peace sweet girl. I know you are now one of God's Angels. xo

If Rich has nothing better to do than whine that someone tried to make ends meet by selling bathing suits, then I don't understand how he is employed at all.   So what if the guy screwed up in the past.  He obviously knows something of the law or he wouldn't have been able to defend Casey successfully.  I think that has caused jealousy or fear in Rich.  Although, for the life of me, I can't understand why.  Isn't he supposed to be some kind of news reporter?

Leave Baez alone, he's just a lawyer doing his job, which he charged nothing for. Casey is the problem!

Me thinks Mr Baez got paid in sexual favors from Casey. We all know she is a three input gal. Just ask her brother.
