Casey Anthony's legal team tells TMZ they will fight the judge who just rejected their claim that Casey served her probation for check fraud while she sat in jail during her murder trial ... and if they lose Casey will have to return to Florida in 11 days.

I don’t think that many people care.

There are more important things .. That affect US ALL right now and Casey Anthony isn’t one of them!

She Should NOT Be On Probation

They are right. She should be in prison.

The people I pinged were those who watched the trial daily for two weeks. They would most likely be interested. Obviously you aren't.

Since you feel so strongly, why not contact the Admin Moderator if you think the article should not be posted on this forum, rather than annoy those who may wish to read it?

Wouldn’t you think this confusion of a state would have figured that out before releasing Ms. Anthony. Perhaps Pennsylvania is the Keystone State but Floriduh is known for Keystone Kops.

No, all I heard was that Judge Perry wanted her back in Florida. He was also accused in the papers of being “bitter.” Gee, I wonder why.

Her legal team argues she served her probation while in jail. Duh. Probation must be pretty easy when you’re in solitary.

It is assumed she is not in the state. Considering the original charge is a misdemeanor, then if I were her I would stay where I was. It is unlikely that Florida would extradite someone from another state for something petty like this.

The taxpayers already spent a whole lotta bucks on a failed prosecution. Economically makes sense to just let this drop instead of spend another 100 grand on having her serve out probation.

Casey Anthony should have to live up to her probation.

It is never good to allow a maniac like her to skate from even the smallest of charges.

She was ordered to probation. She should do it and be very glad this is only price she will pay for child abuse and the murder of her daughter.

To not live up to this, she will be making herself even more reviled.

You must have missed the massive Anthony threads.

Unlike you, we can walk and chew gum at the same time.

There are many threads waiting for you. Just pack up and find one.

People like you do the same to the people here who enjoy their Rush Radio threads. They like it and enjoy it. Not everyone does. People who don’t can play elsewhere.

It’s so weird to me that people resent the Casey Anthony threads. Would they have felt that way with OJ? As you say, most of us can do two things at once.

Maybe it should be the “Casey Anthony Caucus,” lol!

By the way, I hope she’s dragged back to Florida in chains and forced to serve out her probation sitting in Mama Cindy’s living room.

I get po’ed when people jump on a thread they aren’t interested in to tell us we shouldn’t be. And if we are interested, that we are ignoring all the strife in the country.

I suppose, like you, I can’t focus on politics and Obama 24/7.

Sometimes I would post on a Rush thread. I don’t much anymore, but you would always have the few that couldn’t stand that people did this daily and enjoyed the company of other FReepers just shooting the bull, not just the show.

I think that's how it will play out as well...though the Attorneys may not want to throw in the towel.

Personally the less press time she has the better IMO. Though I am interested to see how this ultimatley plays out..and finishes. The sooner the better she is out of the media.

Has there been any news about where she’s getting treatment? That is if she even remains there for long. I tend to think she’ll use the time there to her advantage just as a “hideout” for a time. Once she gets board and has some money in her pocket she’ll be long gone.

I think the media isn’t going to give Casey much press until they’ve sealed a “special interview”...that would increase their ratings. Most weathered the trial and now have pretty much moved forward.....while Casey hides out in whatever sanctuary she’s at. She’ll become news again once she starts to move away from that....I don’t think she’ll be “confined” anywhere for long....only as it serves her purpose....then she’ll go on the run again.

This probation issue likely will fade out as well...only the attorneys will want to see it go the long run...fills their revenue pockets.

I think the Casey Anthony case is important - all crime against chidren is important. And it plays to one of FR’s most important and enduring themes: the corruption of our culture.

That a woman could get off after all the evidence compiled, sickens me.

I go to Rush occasionally, too. Usually, I just tune into his show. I think he’s as good today as he’s ever been. He’s the chairman of the board as far as I’m concerned.

Nice to see you again, indylindy!

We hope you will cooperate and help make this thread what it is intended for and that is a discussion thread.

They are self-made “thought police.” They think others should only think about what they want them to think about. It’s a liberal trait, but sometimes we see it here, too.

I worry about the fine line which separates defending a truly innocent defendant and protecting the rights of a defendant presumed innocent, but in reality guilty as sin.

The line was not so fine in this case. The problem was that they had some really stupid jurors (you only had to listen to some of the interviews to verify that), and one or two who I think wanted to have the verdict that would sell best for a book or movie. (Didn’t work out so great, tough luck.) For our jury system to work correctly, we need both intelligent (not just book learning, but the ability to reason as well) and ethical people to sit on them. A reasonable jury would have found this woman guilty.

Both judges have been very clear on their intent and purpose regarding Casey’s probation. She is to serve it.

it has been reported that Casey has signed a 6 figure book deal where she will name the father of Caylee who she says is still alive and talk about her family.

Make no mistake...Casey should be sitting on death row.

Ignorant jurors aside, I do not believe the prosecution proved their case. Too much junk science along with a failure to adapt to the tactics used by Baez. Also, so much of what could have clinched the deal never made it into court because it was hearsay. The big family blowup the night before is a perfect example.

The so-called “junk science” was never used by the prosecution. It was brought in by the greasy defense attorney and his hillbilly partner during the summation.

And as someone who watched the case from the first time Cindy Anthony appeared on The Today Show, her hair beautifully styled as she preened for the cameras, I knew something was rotten in the state of Denmark - if you get my drift.

It would sure be a good thing if there weren’t any more incidents like this Anthony case. No doubt there will be.

This thread where Casey is trying to get out of probation irritates me. She is never satisfied.

I doubt too many people sympathize with her on this.

She made her bed and she can lie in it. Literally.

I have no respect for her defense team.

Agreed, as always. Although anybody who would lie down on Anthony’s bed oughta think long and hard before doing it - and taking a very long shower before and after it. That lady is dirty!

She scared me the most when she claimed she wanted to have another baby. God forbid.

The thought sickens me. In her crazy mind, she probably thinks she can make it right by replacing Caylee.

Perish the thought!

The entire Anthony family is rotten. I have no empathy for any of them.

Glad to see poor, financially strapped George and Cindy managed to get their vacation in before paying tribute to Caylee on her birthday. And I wonder who got what amount for the pictures?

BTW: Why anyone wants to memorialize that site is beyond me. If Caylee was my granddaughter, I certainly would not go to the place where someone dumped her like any other bag of trash. But that's just me.

Tactics? I thought this case was about evidence. The amount of the physical evidence was enormous and should have been enough. The circumstantial evidence should have clenched it.

It almost seems as though you followed this case via the commentators, many of whom did not like the fact that the prosecution did not pull rabbits out of a hat or come up with any CSI actors to “prove” the case.

It was a simple and mostly uncomplicated murder case that did not need special effects—the evidence spoke loudly. However, the jurors still didn’t hear it, or see it either for that matter.

That the jurors were enamored of the greasy defense lawyer is proof that few of any of them should have ever been selected in the first place.

Justice was not done.

Please give me a little credit. I live in the real world, not one run by talking heads and television dramas. I think the prosecution could have done a better job of presenting the evidence.

They needed to build a better narrative for the jury. Start in the beginning, working their way through to the end, weaving the evidence together slowly and deliberately. The closing was powerful, but by then, it was too late (IMO).

Seems like an honest opinion to me. No rabbits. No tricks. No CSI moments.
