Casey Anthony found not guilty

Posted on 11/04/2019 | in 南宁桑拿 | by

A Florida jury has handed a not guilty verdict in the case of Casey Anthony, accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee in 2008, in a case that has gripped the United States and dominated social media.

The seven-woman, five-man jury, who deliberated for just a day after a more than six-week trial, also found the 25-year-old not guilty of child abuse and aggravated manslaughter.

She was found guilty on four counts of providing false information to law enforcement — misdemeanor charges that will likely see Anthony set free, after time served in prison awaiting the trial.

Had she been convicted of first-degree murder, Anthony could have faced the death penalty in a widely publicized trial that became a media circus centered on the Orange County, Florida courthouse.

Prosecution lawyers claimed Anthony had suffocated her daughter with duct tape, dumped the body in her car for a few days and then hid it. The skeletal remains of the little girl’s body were found just under six months later.

The defense team maintained the toddler drowned accidentally and that Anthony, along with her father George, covered up the death — circumstances that he denied.

In a statement released through their lawyer, Casey Anthony’s mother, father and brother said the verdict brought “closure” to this period of their life, and 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,” said the statement.
