Wanted: An attorney who will put up with the media circus that will likely follow Casey Anthony for the rest of her life. The attorney who previously held that position, Jose Baez, released a statement to the media Wednesday announcing that he is no longer representing Anthony. If you'll recall, Baez stood alongside Anthony, clutching her hand, when she was found not guilty last year of killing her daughter, Caylee. Anthony's acquittal outraged many and led one online poll to dub her the most hated person in America.

Charges have been dropped against two teenage girls accused of bullying a 12-year-old Florida student into killing herself in September, but the controversy isn't over. The suicide of Rebecca Ann Sedwick became one of the nation's most prominent bullying cases after a local sheriff aggressively publicized the behavior of the two girles accused of tormenting her, and they were charged with felony stalking. This week, an attorney for one of the suspects said the sheriff went too far. “He should get a lawyer, and a darn good one, because he's going to need it,” said Jose Baez, who  represented Casey Anthony in her Florida murder trial and now represents a 13-year-old girl in the bullying case.

The celebrated attorney who represented Casey Anthony has taken on the case of a 12-year-old Florida girl accused of stalking another child who then killed herself -- a case that has raised national questions about how to deal with cyberbullying. Jose Baez, who took on Anthony's case and won, said on Friday that his current 12-year-old client did nothing criminal. Speaking to reporters after a brief court hearing, the lawyer said that his client had been a friend of Rebecca Sedwick, who jumped to her death last month from an abandoned cement silo in Lakeland.

A bondsman posted bail for the mother of a missing toddler and said he hoped her release would help lead investigators to the girl, officials said. Casey Anthony, 22, has been in the Orange County jail in lieu of $500,200 bail since mid-July. Police say she lied to them and didn't report her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee, missing for more than a month. She faces charges of child neglect, making false statements and obstructing an investigation. A group from a California bail bonds company flew to Florida to help local bondsman Albert Estes, who shares the same surety group, post the bond.
