No more pleading the fifth for her!
Casey Anthony has been forced back into court! Apparently an angry woman named Zenaida Gonzalez is suing the acquitted murderer for defamation.
Last year, when depositions for the suit started, Casey was on trial and was legally allowed to keep her mouth tight. So… the ex-mom plead the fifth a TON.
CA can still use that excuse because she's currently appealing what she was convicted of, lying to the cops. HOWEVES, if her appeal is thrown out Casey will be forced to tell the truth — and nothing but the WHOLE truth in court with Mz Gonzalez.
Zenaida fancy lawyer explains:
"She [Casey] has just filed her initial brief. If she wins her appeal and the charges are thrown out, then there is no fifth amendment privilege and we expect her to talk at trial. If she loses her appeal, we believe she will have to talk as well because there is no criminal charge pending. So resolution of her appeal one way or the other is helpful to us."
Translation: she's gonna have to spill!
But don't be surprised if she doesn't reveal any new tidbits on what went down when her daughter disappeared.
