A Florida jury has acquitted Casey Anthony of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee... She was charged with first-degree murder, which could have brought the death penalty if she had been convicted.
Anthony was found not guilty on all murder charges as well as aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter. She was convicted of four counts of lying to investigators. Judge Belvin Perry will sentence her Thursday. She could receive up to a year in jail for each count.
...Prosecutors sat solemnly in their seats, looking stunned. Prosecutor Jeff Ashton shook his head slightly from side to side in apparent disbelief...
The bungled prosecution cost Orlando taxpayers between half-a-million and a million dollars.
The level of attention paid to this trial by the media almost defies belief. Because, as my wife said earlier this week, if Casey Anthony wore a 32A bra, no one in America would have ever heard of her.
