Casey Anthony Appeals Convictions

By January 10, 2013

Follow me on:

A Florida appeals court has been asked to overturn the misdemeanor convictions of Casey Anthony for lying to authorities during the investigation into the disappearance of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. Anthony told investigators that Caylee had been kidnapped by a nanny named Zenaida Gonzales.

Casey Anthony did not appear at the appeals court hearing in Daytona Beach.

Attorneys for Anthony argued before the appeal panel that Casey was in police custody when she made those statements to Sheriff department detectives. If the court rules that she was in police custody, the statements she made could be inadmissible because she was not read her Miranda rights.

If the statements are not admissible, Casey could not be convicted of making those statements, they argued.

Anthony was found not guilty of murdering Caylee, but was convicted on the lesser charges of providing false information to law enforcement. She was previously convicted of check fraud.

She served one year of probation at an undisclosed location in Florida on the check charges. She has remained out of the public eye since her highly publicized trial.

This evil wacko gets away with MURDER, and now she wants to get away lying about that murder? She really will do anything to get another 5 minutes of infamy. How she or any of her twelve jurors can look at themselves in the mirror astounds me. But to hear she has the unmitigated GALL to try to get away with lying as well, when all she’s done since the day poor Caylee died is lie her ass off…well, it is just beyond belief.
