Casey Anthony was ACQUITTED and found NOT GUILTY; Orlando Florida courts! BUT where is CAYLEE ANTHONY??

 ORLANDO, Fla. — Casey Anthony was found not guilty today of killing her 2-year-old daughter three years ago in a case that captivated the nation as it played out on national television from the moment the toddler was reported missing.
Anthony, 25, wept after the clerk read the verdict, which jurors reached after less than 11 hours of deliberation over two days. She was charged with first-degree murder, which could have brought the death penalty if she had been convicted.
Instead, she was convicted of only four counts of lying to investigators looking into the June 2008 disappearance of her daughter Caylee. Her body was found in the woods six months later and a medical examiner was never able to determine how she died.
Anthony will be sentenced by the judge on Thursday and could receive up to a year in jail for each lying count.

 After the verdict was read, Casey Anthony hugged her attorney Jose Baez and later mouthed the words “thank you” to him.
Prosecutors sat solemnly in their seats, looking stunned. Prosecutor Jeff Ashton shook his head slightly from side to side in apparent disbelief. Across the room, Anthony’s father wiped tears from his eyes. Without speaking to Casey, he and his wife left the courtroom escorted by police as the judge thanked the jury.
“While we’re happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case,” Baez said at a news conference afterward. “Caylee has passed on far, far too soon. And what my driving force has been for the last three years has been always to make sure that there has been justice for Caylee and Casey, because Casey did not murder Caylee. It’s that simple.”
He added: “This case has brought on new challenges of all of us. Challenges in the criminal justice system, challenges in the media, and I think we should all take this as an opportunity to learn and to realize that you cannot convict someone until they’ve had their day in court.”

Anthony’s attorneys claimed that the toddler drowned accidentally in the family swimming pool, and that her seemingly carefree mother in fact was hiding emotional distress caused by sexual abuse from her father.
Prosecutors contended that Caylee was suffocated with duct tape by a mother who loved to party, tattooed herself with the Italian words for “beautiful life” in the month her daughter was missing and crafted elaborate lies to mislead everyone from investigators to her own parents.

Captivated observers camped outside the courthouse to jockey for coveted seats in the courtroom gallery, which occasionally led to fights among those desperate to watch the drama unfold.

Prior to the verdict today, the judge said: “To those in the gallery please do not express any signs of approval or disapproval upon the reading of the verdict.”
Anthony did not take the stand during the trial, which started in mid-May. Because the case got so much media attention in Orlando, jurors were brought in from the Tampa Bay area and sequestered for the entire trial.

Baez conceded that his client had told elaborate lies and invented imaginary friends and even a fake father for Caylee, but he said that doesn’t mean she killed her daughter.
“They throw enough against the wall and see what sticks,” Baez said of prosecutors during closing arguments. “That is what they’re doing ... right down to the cause of death.”
He tried to convince jurors that the toddler accidentally drowned in the family swimming pool and that when Anthony panicked, her father, a former police officer, decided to make the death look like a murder by putting duct tape on the girl’s mouth and dumping the body in woods about a quarter-mile away.

Her father firmly denied both the cover-up and abuse claims. The prosecution called those claims “absurd,” saying that no one makes an accident look like a murder.
Lead prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick concluded the state’s case by showing the jury two side-by-side images. One showed Casey Anthony smiling and partying in a nightclub during the month Caylee was missing. The other was the tattoo she got a day before her family and law enforcement first learned of the child’s disappearance.
“At the end of this case, all you have to ask yourself is whose life was better without Caylee?” Burdick asked. “This is your answer.”

Prosecutors hammered on the lies Anthony, then 22, told from June 16, 2008, when her daughter was last seen, and a month later when sheriff’s investigators were notified. Those include the single mother telling her parents she couldn’t produce Caylee because the girl was with a nanny named Zanny — a woman who doesn’t exist; that she and her daughter were spending time in Jacksonville, Fla., with a rich boyfriend who doesn’t exist; and that Zanny had been hospitalized after an out-of-town traffic crash and that they were spending time with her.
But the #1 issue that has been this entire case & since LONG before the 911 call is.......
SHE IS DEAD!!!!!! AND NO LONGER ABLE TO PLAY, RUN, Have FREEDOM EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! I don't even KNOW HOW CASEY could live with herself after this....let alone SMILE, LAUGH or have ANY OTHER EMOTIONS rather then being completely devastated by grief!!!! Especially if I WASN'T GUILTY and charged, WOW! Her actions spoke enough and I LIKE millions of others am too VERY SHOCKED at the outcome of this case!!!!! But after all this is WHAT Sociopaths do!! They take everyone down whether it be a child or not and they 8 times out of 10 they most likely get away w/it. Well, at least down here on earth they do!!!  ALSO I haven't completely followed this 'Casey Anthony' chick but there has to be something off about this and the verdict! Cause YOU and I both know if this were ANYONE else they would have been locked up had the key thrown away a LONG time ago and NOT even able to even FIGHT for their freedom! Yet, little Casey Anthony gets to fight and fight and make pretty much a JOKE of the legal system! It just shows WHAT TYPE of people get AWAY with ANYTHING and ALL the rest of the public is literally screwed!!!!! But coming from a Florida Court System - pfft. please I am not surprised, smh! What a joke this WHOLE case has been made and NOT a funny one either! Feel free to share your opinions....... or not. ;) Whichever. ♥ (I do moderate them though - so I see them 1st before & 'if' I approve em' - most times I don't all depends on the conversation though some just clog the blog feed) But anywho.....yeah so that's that. *Smh in disgust*

  1. This is truly horrific and a shame to this ignorant country and this world! Every living prove was right in-front of our eyes & the ignorant blind court didn't bother seeing anything AT ALL :((( This goes by saying what a reality we live in today.... Truly Heart Breaking!!!
    & BTW, Why is Cindy keep trying to ignore the fact after all that Caycee's done??
    Is she keep reassuring herself that that can't happen to her and ignoring EVERYTHING & THE TRUTH?? Is she forgetting about Caylee already?? Her own grand-daughter who was murdered by her ruthless self-centered M.F.B. daughter and letting her get away with EVERYTHING??? THIS IS WRONG, WAKE UP CINDY.. REMEMBER THAT UR ACCEPTING THE TRUTH DOESN'T CHANGE ANYTHING.. UR ALSO CONTRIBUTING TO THIS SIN. I HOPE UR LISTENING B/C ONE MAY RUN BUT ONE CAN NEVER HIDE FROM THE TRUTH. Don't you remember her accusing your own husband for abusing & burying Caylee?? WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU.. You may soon lose your only husband if you keep denying the truth.

    many people had the heart to see it & saw through the appearances, but as it goes by saying that "virtue is prosecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good." This is truly sad... :((( My heart truly goes always with dear Caylee... I love you my baby... May you find true peace & happiness and I know you are around the arms of angels and god... love - Tenzin
