Casey Anthony

December 15, 2011 by staff 

Casey Anthony, Retired state prosecutor Jeff Ashton doesn’t pull any punches five months after Casey Anthony was found not guilty by a Pinellas County jury.

“Casey Anthony is the single greatest liar to have ever lived,” Ashton told a packed room Wednesday evening at the Gelbart Auditorium in Selby Library. “… Can any of you remember the lie three months later? No. She could remember every single detail of that lie.”

His thoughts on Casey’s father George Anthony? The opposite.

“He is a lousy liar. George stinks as a liar,” Ashton said. “He’s one of the worst liars ever. Cross-examining him is like taking candy from a baby.”

Anthony was acquitted of murder charges and numerous other lesser charges the jury could have found her guilty for the death of her daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

The verdict was read July 5 and after the sentencing, Ashton, a St. Petersburg native, retired. Five months later, Ashton is on the road promoting his book “Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony,” written with Lisa Pulitzer.

Ashton gave brief comments before taking questions for nearly an hour. The night was filled with deepanlysis, filled with laughter at times, sometimes Ashton would joke about his own misgivings.

But the last question of the evening asked by a young girl produced one of the most chilling responses. She asked, “If Casey did kill Caylee, do you think she regrets it?”
