Casey Anthony Charges
July 5, 2011 by USA Post
Five women and seven men sat in silence, respect and introspective as lawyers on both sides of the court argued, the opinions expressed, played, gamesmenship, AU, and presented their cases for and against accused child murderer Casey Anthony.
For 35 days, the jurors sat listening without making even a sigh, even when images of the scene grisely little Caylee, becoming protagonist is showing on the court, while all those around her had their opportunity to convince the jury that the experts agree they take their job seriously, to believe that their version of what happened on June 16, 2008 and 31 days after that.
Now, everyone has gone silent, AI has sustained arguments, the passion has played, and stories told. The only 12 voices will be heard until the day that Casey Anthony, becoming leading destination is not yet determined, will be the jury.
But what these 12 people have to decide?
There are seven charges or charges in this case. Each position must stand on its own during jury deliberations. If Casey Anthony is guilty of each charge will be condemned to all convictions, while, and while she has to be sentenced on each count, the judge has to give her time in prison on each count.
Count 1: first degree murder. One of the conclusions of a first-degree murder to mean life in prison or death. A life sentence in Florida is a sense of shame that life is still behind bars the rest of your life without parole.
Including less the first charge, second-degree murder (depraved mind murder, not premeditated) The maximum penalty for second-degree murder is a life sentence. The minimum penalty is based on the Code of penal sanctions. The estimated minimum sentence for this charge and other charges that could result in a conviction, with this account would be 24 years, 6 months.
Count 2: Aggravated child abuse. The maximum penalty for aggravated child is 15 years in prison. The estimated minimum sentence for this charge and other charges that could result in a conviction, with this account would be 12 years, 1 month.
Count 3: aggravated manslaughter of a child: If Casey Anthony is guilty of causing the death of Caylee through culpable negligence; the maximum penalty is 30 years in prison. The estimated minimum sentence for this charge and other charges that could result in a conviction, with this account would be 16 years and 6 months.
The charges of 4 to 7: giving false information to a police officer in reference to a missing person: The burden of these four counts carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison on each count. As a result, if convicted of all four of these counts, Casey Anthony could be sentenced to four years if the penalty for each count is consecutively.
If the jury convicted on a charge that carries the death penalty, then your work is not done yet. They go to the sentencing phase of the trial that the jury must decide whether death is warranted. The jury will hear arguments from both sides, once again; such is the victim impact statements and even Casey.
Judge Belvin Perry will have the final word on Anthony; the punishment became the protagonist, but must consider the jury’s recommendation IS in reaching that decision. Most judges agree with the jury.
