Casey Anthony examined by Experts, found competent

Casey Anthony’s defense team filed a last minute ex-parte motion on Saturday morning alleging that Anthony was not competent to continue the trial, said Judge Belvin Perry, virtually stopping the proceedings in its tracks.

After receiving the motion, Judge Perry, immediately ordered that Anthony be examined by three independent experts to determine if she was in fact competent or deemed incompetent to stand trial.

The three psychologists chosen to exam Anthony were Dr. Daniel Tressler, Dr. Harry McLaren and Dr. Ryan Hall.

Dr. Tressler examined Anthony late Saturday morning, Dr. McLaren examined Anthony Saturday evening, and Dr. Hall examined Anthony on Sunday.

After carefully reviewing the reports, Judge Perry said that Anthony was indeed competent to stand trial.

The experts’ reports will remain sealed, but the defense motion and the judge’s order appointing experts will be filed.

On Monday morning, Casey Anthony’s defense attorney Ann Finnel filed a new motion for a mistrial.
