However, my main theory is that defense attorney Jose Baez will be asked to leave the case, and will face sanctions from the court for misconduct in not providing proper discovery disclosure to the prosecution. As a result, lawyer Cheney Mason, pictured above, will be named the lead attorney for the defense.
Jose Baez has conducted an extremely poor defense. In addition, he has recently had his Florida home repossessed.
Whatever the reason, this doesn't bode well for this trial, opening the door for grounds for appeal or perhaps even a mistrial.
