Casey Anthony was acquitted of all counts directly pertaining to the death of her daughter Caylee. She was convicted of the counts pertaining to lying to the police. Chances are that the time she's already been in custody will cover any sentence rendered for that. I was cuaght off-guard by that verdict.
What does this mean in terms of seeking justic for Caylee? In the OJ Simpson case, the state declined to join O.J. on the various golf courses to which he traveled looking for the real killer. They were convinced they had found the real killer, but had lost the battle in jury selection. Will the prosecution conclude in this case as well that they tried the real killer and lost, and so there's no point in searching further for the real killer. Perhaps the state will accept that the child drowned, or perhaps they maintain that Casey is, indeed, the killer but that they lost their chance, as double jeopardy prevents and retrial of Casey.
Will anything happen in terms of warnings of sanctions possibly being taken against attorneys after the fact -- particularly of Mr. Baez? Additionally, is Casey still facing any theft charges independent of the death of her child?
My greatest hope is that reality show featuring Casey Anthony will not become a reality. She makes the late Anna Nicole Smith look like the epitome of class by comparison.
