During the highly-publicized murder trial of Casey Anthony the young mother did not testify in her own defense. Now an attorney representing Zenaida Gonzalez in her civil trial against the “Tot Mom” has stated that she will finally be required to testify under oath about the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Gonzalez filed her lawsuit against Anthony for defamation after she told investigators that her daughter had been kidnapped by a nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez. It turned out that no such nanny existed and that the real-life Zenaida Gonzalez had never met Anthony or any member of her family.
Attorney Matt Morgan stated:
“Casey Anthony will not be permitted to plead the 5th as her appeals have now been resolved. We look forward to getting answers to the questions we have had for a very long time.”
This deposition is scheduled for October 9 in Tampa, Florida. Anthony’s current attorney, Charles Green, has not responded to Morgan’s claim.
