July 5, 2011 by USA Post
Caylee Anthony Verdict, After six weeks of testimony, dozens of witnesses and a full day of deliberations, 12 jurors found not guilty of the Casey Anthony murder of her two-year-old daughter. The jury found Anthony not guilty of the lesser charges of second-degree murder and third-degree felony murder. According to Judge Belvin Perry instructions, Jr. ‘s, if the jury found Casey Anthony caused Caylee’s death, then went to the circumstances of death. When it was over, the jury found Casey guilty of four counts of providing false information to investigators.
From May 24, Casey Anthony, 25, has been tried for the murder of her daughter, Caylee, who was almost three at the time of her death. Caylee was last seen in June 2008, almost a month later, Casey’s mother, Cindy, called 911 to report missing children. A search of six months finally appeared the decomposed body of Caylee with tape on her head.
Prosecutors allege that Casey searched the Internet for instructions on how to make homemade chloroform, use chemistry to bring the children, and then killed her by putting tape over her mouth and nose. Attorney Casey, Jose Baez, offered a different theory in his opening statement: Caylee drowned in a swimming pool and Casey’s father, George, removed from the body. Weeks of testimony from forensic closing arguments during the weekend.
While most of the country was on vacation for the Fourth of July weekend, the case went ahead. Lawyers began their final Sunday, where the prosecutor Jeff Ashton gave a brutal, 90-minute debate, detailing how Casey Anthony chose her social life on the existence of her own son. “Something must be sacrificed, that something is the life I wanted, and the promotion of life in it,” said Ashton. “She chose to sacrifice her son.” Casey behavior alternated between sittings in front of the stone break to mourn when Ashton attacks leveled against her.
Casey’s defense attorney Jose Baez case of the state called “forensic fantasy” and focused on the argument that the State had not proved the guilt of Casey beyond reasonable doubt. Baez ratchets the rhetoric, calling Ashton a liar and say that dancing around the truth.
Instead of feeling offended by the attacks of Baez, Ashton covered his mouth to hide a big smile, which caused Baez Ashton to point to and say “this guy laughing here!” Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. stopped the process; the jury sent out of the room and admonished the lawyers. Baez and Ashton have met on several occasions during the trial, prompting Perry to call dozens of sidebars and send the jury room on several occasions.
While Casey Anthony avoided the death penalty, which still faces jail for lying to investigators. Judge Perry left the sentence of 9 am on Thursday, where he could be sentenced to additional time added to the two years spent in prison awaiting trial.
