Casey Anthony Appeals Lying Conviction
ABC News ^ | July 15, 2011 | Christina Ng

Posted on 07/15/2011 2:22:03 PM PDT by truthkeeper

Casey Anthony, acquitted of charges that she murdered her daughter Caylee, filed an appeal today of her conviction that she lied to law enforcement officers.

The appeal came days before Anthony, 25, is scheduled to leave jail. She was sentenced to four years on four counts of lying to investigators about Caylee's death. Since she has already served three years and is credited for good behavior, she will be released from the Orange County jail on Sunday.

The jury that acquitted her of murder agreed that she broke the law when she told police she worked at Universal Studios, that she left her daughter with a babysitter named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, when she claimed that Caylee was missing, and when she claimed that Caylee was still alive and she had spoken to her on the phone July 15, 2008. None of those statements were true.

Well, given the admitted fact that our president of the United States lied about his mother being denied healthcare coverage for ovarian cancer because the evil insurance company refused her cancer coverage, Casey Anthony is supposed to be held to a higher standard involving life and death of loved ones?

Appeal? Nah, going nowhere......four misdemeanor charges....what judge will overturn this NOW? This is some kind of delay tactic on the lawsuits......she won’t be deposed now until October. Delay, subterfuge and lies.....but it ain’t over till the fat lady sings. The saga lives on.

Some people should know when to quit pushing their luck. OJ didn’t and look where he wound up. Bets on how long she’s going to last?

If the charges are overturned, she can likely sue the Dep’t. of Corrections for false imprisonment. That must be the angle. Otherwise, what sense does it make?

Her lawyers want her mental state evaluated again? She is walking free, no one can make her do ANYTHING she doesn’t want......didn’t she get another attorney to do her appeal?

Not long really. She’s going to end up lynched or she’s going to end up back in jail. She is RIDICULOUSLY lucky with that acquittal and she is ridiculously lucky that she is going to walk with ‘time served.’

I doubt it....how can she sue, she was charged with MURDER....nothing wrong with keeping her locked up, perfectly legal. AND she was found guilty of lying. Remains to be seen if it can be overturned.

The hallmark of a sociopath is no conscience. She just feels no guilt over anything she does. Life is all about her, her and more her. No one else counts. She has no empathy or love for anyone but herself. Life is only about Casey. She can feel jealous, anger and hate.....but love for another would put them before her and that ain’t gonna happen. She played at being mommy, but after a couple of years that got old. She is a master manipulator......she controls the situation any way she can. Lie, deceive, evade....whatever it takes. But not many folks are this exposed to the spotlight and keep it up. We shall see, we shall see. The world had her number now.

There are plenty of people waiting to get their hands on her. I would not be surporised to wake up one morning to hear that her body was found in a wet dump with duct tape over her face.

Did you see the story about the woman in Oklahoma who was attacked for looking like Casey Anthony? Her life (and those of women she resembles) is not going to be easy. Cue a tiny violin for her.

I’ve heard both the foreman of the jury and the young woman give their explanations as to why they acquitted her. I have to say that neither of them make one bit of sense. Basically, to them, it was all about George.

I was informed that Casey was declared indigent, so could not pay for her defense...so, the people of Florida paid both sides....how about that?

You are correct, it was the trial of George Anthony. I’ve listened to enough of the explanations to know that if they could have convicted him, they would have.

I would bet a dollar to a hole in a donut that the reason for casey being acquitted was that the trial was too long and too perverted.

They would never admit it, but I think that they all just wanted to go home......and not have to go thru all the bullshit "evidence" and lies again and again.

The easiest way to do that would just let Casey go...

..and that's what they did.

That was my feeling also. They obviously didn’t think things through very well. And George was never charged with anything that Casey’s lawyers threw at him. The jury just believed all that cr*p without any evidence. Talk about a bunch of nit-wits.

Honestly I am glad it came on. I am very interested in getting involved in the innocence project. I don’t think it was crap. I think it was a really interesting case and will eventually make a lot of people think about the Justice System. I really am sorry if you or anyone else was offended by my comments. None were personal in any way. I am glad we had the chance to hash it out on FR. I thank you.

Of course they did....and the jury foreman even said in his interview he was worried about his two dogs...imbeciles says it right. The jury was incompetent from the get go.

However on this appeal for lying. Casey almost has to do this , in her mind, as surely as her attorneys wants to keep the cash flow going from the state coffers to theirs in defending her. Even if the attorneys loose it's no skin off their noses...they still get the limelight and the money. And of course Casey's face is in the news once again, satisfying her great need for the focus of the world being on her....and the stories which will be written.

Certainly they explained to her that by not appealing these charges speaks of her guilt of delaying and such the investigation...who can also charge her. The judge has already mentioned the reimbursement possibilities for that. If she wins the appeal the police cannot press her for reinbursement.

So in order for Casey to completely clear her name she has to appeal...and thus to protect the future monies she makes for her story's...and you can be certain they will be forthcoming.

No matter the outcome...it's a win win for the attorneys...and in Casey's mind for her as well.

Can you imagine now ...the police investigators rage over this?...and now they will have to parade thru the courts...Casey's going to take them all out as we will see....and walk away smelling like a rose.

Drew Peterson stated he was "encouraged" by the Casey Anthony verdict...maybe the two of them can team up and we can take bets on how long it will be before Casey is found dead, drowned in a bathtub with no water or she just disappears...karma is a biotch...

The most vulnerable because of the attempted suicide. It also would have that certain shock value that couldn’t be proven; but might be true(which I don’t believe). The only one that could have been half believable is the affair between George and the woman with two different names and that is only because people can act like dogs on occasion. I don’t believe that one either.
