Public Shocked as Casey Anthony Found Not Guilty
Despite the fact that the public assumed she would be convicted, Casey Anthony was somehow acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008.

Anthony held back tears as a jury of seven women and five men announced the verdict. After over a month of testimony and two days of closing arguments, the defense team summed up the case by saying, “there is plenty of reasonable doubt. You cannot convict her.” And the jury agreed, leaving the public shocked.

The only thing Anthony was found guilty of was providing false information to law enforcement, which is only a misdemeanor. She was found not guilty of aggravated child abuse, manslaughter and first degree murder.

Having spent the past three years in prison, Anthony’s final sentencing will take place on Thursday.

People were so convinced she would be convicted, the media wasn’t focused on whether she would serve, but how long she would serve.

Anthony sobbed as she the verdict was read. Then, shortly after the announcement, Anthony was seen with a wide smile on her face, laughing as her team surrounded and congratulated her.

Prosecutors claimed that Casey drugged her daughter with chloroform before suffocating her with duct tape. Defense attorney Jose Baez said the truth was that Caylee had accidentally drowned and instead of reporting her death, Casey “went into a dark corner, to pretend as if nothing was wrong.”
