Jose Baez has certainly proven himself to be the man who can hide your sins, or make them go away. He helped Casey Anthony beat a murder charge, perhaps Nick Gordon will fare the same should he find himself being charged with negligent homicide in what may be a long legal battle with his girlfriend’s family.
As Bobbi Kristina Brown spends her final days in hospice care, and whispers growing louder about Nick being held responsible for her injuries, Gordon is lying low in Florida and lawyering up. He has hired attorney Jose Baez after allegations that he assaulted her and misappropriated her money.
The Wrap’s Anita Bennett reports that news of Gordon hiring the Florida criminal defense attorney, who won an acquittal for Casey Anthony in her 2011 murder case, comes one week after Brown’s court-appointed conservator filed a lawsuit against Gordon alleging that he assaulted Brown and transferred funds to himself from her bank account without her permission.
The complaint alleges that Gordon posed as Brown’s husband in order to control her contact with others as part of a “scheme to benefit from her wealth.”
Bobby Kristina was placed in a hospice care facility the same day that the lawsuit was filed.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” Pat Houston said in a statement.
The complaint also alleges that on January 31, the day Krissy was found face down and unresponsive in her bathtub, she became “embroiled in a loud argument with Defendant at her townhome.”
The suit goes on to claim that shortly before the bathtub incident, Brown “had confided in someone that Defendant was not the man she thought he was” and set up a Jan. 31 meeting with that person “to further discuss this revelation.”
According to People, Baez will act as Gordon’s co-counsel along with attorneys Joe Habachy and Randy Kessler, who have represented Gordon for several months. The high-profile legal team has also reportedly enlisted investigator TJ Ward, who worked on the Natalee Holloway disappearance case.
