The allegations were both graphic and specific and, says Jose Baez, completely untrue. Private investigator Dominic Casey alleged in just-revealed court documents filed earlier this year in connection with a bankruptcy case that, among other things, Casey Anthony offered sex to Baez, her lawyer, in exchange for his legal services. Dominic Casey worked with Anthony's defense team after she was accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008, and he alleged that after Baez got Anthony out of a September 2008 TV interview she didn't want to do, Baez "said to [Anthony], 'You now owe me 3 blow jobs.'" Dominic Casey also claimed he encountered a "naked" Anthony during an unannounced visit to Baez's office.

Baez "unequivocally and categorically deny exchanging sex for my legal services with Ms. Anthony," he says in a statement to People. "I further unequivocally and categorically deny having any sexual relationship with Ms. Anthony whatsoever." Baez referred to but did not detail other "outrageous" claims put forth by the PI; People points to a 2011 deposition in which Dominic Casey suggested Caylee's remains perhaps weren't actually Caylee's as a past "eyebrow-raising" allegation. The Orlando Sentinel notes Dominic Casey has written two books on the case that feature "unsubstantiated claims," and reports that Baez and his team have been trying to have a deposition Dominic Casey gave in the bankruptcy case excluded. Baez also suggests he may sue, writing, "Legal action is forthcoming." (Read more of Dominic Casey's claims here.)
