Jackson’s hand written note was filed with the clerk’s office late Monday. The Orange County Court issued the following statement regarding the filing:
“To clarify, the Clerk filed a Motion in this case labeled “Defendant’s Motion for Withdrawal of Appointed Counsel” along with a brief and affidavit. They are filed by an inmate in Michigan allegedly on Ms. Anthony’s behalf. It is obviously filed by someone not connected to the case. I do not know the Clerk's policy on filing documents such as this. The Court did not receive a courtesy copy.”
Anthony, 25, is charged with first-degree murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie. She has pleaded not guilty, claiming a babysitter kidnapped her toddler. Caylee was last seen in June of 2008, but she was not reported missing until a month later. Her remains were found in woods near the family's home in December 2008.
