Judge Belvin Perry has signed an order concerning closing arguments in the Casey Anthony trial.
The order consists of 16 different restrictions that all counsel is ordered to abide by. Among them:
Counsel shall refrain from expressing personal opinions as to the guilt or innocence of Defendant or the credibility of a witness
Counsel shall avoid making arguments that place the jury, or ask the jury to place itself in the position of either victim or Defendant
Counsel shall avoid making any argument for the sole purpose of eliciting sympathies, fears, biases or prejudices from the jury.
Defense counsel shall not concede Defendant's guilt in front of the jury, to either the charged offense or any lesser included offense, without first obtaining express approval for such strategy from the Defendant and placing that approval on the record (at sidebar if necessary) prior to the concession.
The court has not announced when closing arguments will happen.
