Casey Anthony and other highly publicized cases.

Filed under: Uncategorized — papershield @ 4:45 pm

What benefit is there to publicizing legal cases to this extent? Do we really need to know how much evidence is being presented? Do we really need to see her party pictures? I know that American’s find this stuff entertaining but I bring this up because the defense uses publicity as a stall tactic, it increases court costs because they demand a change in venues to locate “impartial jurors” who have not heard of the case in depth, etc. Maybe if we kept this stuff a little more private (only publishing the crime and the outcome, not the entire trial proceeding) then it would be a more efficient process? It might also discourage people who seek notoriety for particularly brutal crimes.
