    ^^^She only reported it at 31 days because she was forced to. It would have been longer than that.

    Last time I went to Florida it rained the whole time so I dont like the place anyway.

    Im confused. Did she kill the girl and cover it up or did the girl drown in a horrible accident and she covered it up?

    The good thing about the civil case (and the reason it was delayed) is because they can depose Casey and she can't claim a right against self-incrimination because she's already been found not guilty.

    According to the prosecution, she figured she had 55 days, until Caylee's birthday. Their theory made perfect sense about why certain lies were developed. Too bad theories aren't really proof.

    I am not too familiar with the US judicial system. Can the prosecution appeal the verdict and ask for a retrial?

    And LOL at K. Kardashian's tweet reply. That was funny.

    No, absent jury or witness tampering (and that would take a truckload of evidence) the prosecution cannot appeal. This sucker is over and Casey will probably go home very soon.

    Wow I'm so surprised that she got off. Scott Peterson had even less evidence against him and he was convicted. Maybe it's easier to find a man guilty. Lord knows her behavior was as bad as Scott's, if not worse. At least he pretended to look for Laci. What normal mother, without something to hide and some kind of involvement, would wait that long to report her daughter missing?

    You can't convict a person of murder because they don't act normal. The state simply didn't have enough evidence of a murder occurring here, nor specifically committed by Casey. Google searches just ain't enough. There has to be a clear line of evidence proving that Caylee was murdered and then murdered by her mother. That didn't happen.

    There was a lot more evidence against Peterson actually, mainly his actions on the night of Lacy's murder.

    They could also show that Laci was murdered. I believe the child in this case was too decomposed for any definite cause of death to be established.

    While you are right, the law does allow a jury to draw reasonable inferences from the totality of the evidence to reach conclusions. The evidence presented by the prosecution painted a pretty cohesive picture. Since I wasn't a juror, I wasn't looking for what other reasonable conclusions could be drawn by each individual piece of evidence, I made up my mind with the whole story. What I fear is coming out of cases like this is unless the prosecution has perfect "television" evidence, the reasonable doubt burden is becoming unattainable. Circumstantial cases are sometimes all the prosecution has - it seems that the worse a human being is and the better liar a person is, the easier it is for them to get away with a crime - that really can't be what our justice system is supposed to be.

    Jeff Ashton is retiring!! Damn. This case must have took it out of him.

    They were interviewing an alternate juror and he said that the prosecution didn't prove their case/theory and that's reasonable doubt. Damn.

    Casey Anthony's Parents Call Her Defense 'Baseless'



    The question of what happened to 2-year-old Caylee Anthony remains unanswered after the jury acquitted her mother, Casey Anthony, on Tuesday.

    And no one is more aware of that fact than Caylee's grandparents.

    "The family may never know what happened to Caylee Marie Anthony," George and Cindy Anthony's lawyer Mark Lippman, said in a statement. "They now have closure for this chapter of their life. They will now begin the long process of rebuilding their lives."

    "Despite the baseless defense chosen by Casey Anthony, the family believes that the jury made a fair decision based on the evidence presented, the testimony presented, the scientific information presented, and the rules that they were given by the Honorable Judge Perry to guide them," the statement continued.

    During the trial, George Anthony was a target of his daughter's defense, which accused him of both molesting Casey and having an affair with a woman who helped search for Caylee. (He denied the affair and the judge disallowed further mention of sexual abuse, saying it wasn't proven.)

    Cindy Anthony, however, was a key defense witness, taking credit for computer searches for chloroform and other apparently incriminating terms and also providing an explanation for how Caylee could have gotten into the family pool and drowned as the defense theorized.

    In their statement, Casey Anthony's parents concluded with their hopes for members of the public who want to honor Caylee.

    Instead of leaving stuffed animals or toys near the Anthony home, the family "would prefer that those items be donated in Caylee's name to families in need, religious centers, or any other entity where the toys would be appreciated."

    I didnt watch the trial but read it here every day and read the news. I never heard a plausible motive. There was also no witnesses or forensic evidence (except one hair?). I know a case can be circumstantial but I think jurors have a hard time thinking a mother could do this for no damn reason whatsoever. Even if they THINK she did it, they want more proof to convict.
    That doesn't explain why the jurors didn't convict on any of the lesser counts available to them; not manslaughter, not even child abuse.

    The jurors should never have considered the drowning theory because the defense offered no testimony or evidence to support it. They didn't even put Casey on the stand to tell that story. They also did not put Casey on the stand to offer her claims of sexual abuse - without that, the jury should never even had those things in their mind, nevermind get to a "he said/she said" point. It would be fair to consider those things if Casey testified to those things and the jury had to weigh her testimony against George's, or Lee's, or whoever's. But she didn't and the jurors should not have considered an unsubstantiated story.

    I feel like there's something else going on with this jury, because it unfathomable to me how any thinking person could think that a child died from undetermined causes and was thrown out like trash, and the mother did nothing wrong in partying constantly and actively covering it up, except lying to law enforcement. Putting aside whether you think it's a first degree murder case - what thinking person would not think that actively concealing your child's death and lying constantly to authorities and family to conceal the child's disappearance does not add up to a cover for manslaughter or aggravated child abuse? What in the hell do the jurors think was her motivation in lying? (Even if one believes the bullshit accidental death story, it happened while in Casey's care, which is enough for neglect/abuse.)

    My other shocker is that, while the prosecution wasn't stellar, I thought they were more than passable. Certainly way better at examining witneses and during arguments. Baez was really supremely shitty and amatuer, and that doesn't change with the verdict IMO. That's why I find the jury really fascinating. I was worried they'd be influenced by the "CSI effect," i.e. jurors expect every case to have absolutely irrefutable evidence, like DNA, and any case that doesn't have that is "reasonable doubt," because a lot of juries now confuse reasonable doubt with "impossible doubt," i.e. expecting the prosecution to eradicate any possible doubts anyone could ever have, no matter how far-fetched, rather than the actual standard of eradicating reasonable doubts a reasonable person would have.

    Luckily I believe in karma - it may take some time, but hopefully it will bite her in the ass eventually just like it did O.J. Like O.J., these sociopaths always think they're invincible so sooner or later, they fuck up again. Either she'll have another kid and get in trouble for child abuse or she'll get busted for drugs or prostitution, something like that. Or steal from the wrong person this time.

    I wish there was a support fund for George and Lee Anthony. I'd donate if George would divorce Cindy's ass and they both get far, far away from Cindy and Casey and never speak to them again.
