Casey Anthony received her sentence today for the 4 counts she was found guilty on.
When she came into the courtroom today her hair was loose & flowing. Her spirits were high, it was obvious, as she flipped her hair & batted her eyes at Baez. I nearly barfed.
Her face changed quickly when JP gave her the maximum sentence & she realized she would be spending more nights in jail. JP also gave her the highest fine possible, $1,000 per charge, plus court costs.
With time served Casey will be released on July 17 (date was changed late 7/7), her total fines are $4, 618. She will begin making payments Feb. 15, 2012 (my birthday) at the rate of $20 a month!!!
All reports say that Cindy, George nor Lee have had contact with Casey since the not guilty verdict came down. Through their lawyer they did make a statement saying Casey's defense was baseless. They also stated they had hoped to get some kind of information as to what really happened through the trial, that didn't happen.
Tim Miller, the founder of Equusearch is considering filing a suit against the Anthony's. Quoted from click2houston.com
""We ended up and spent a little over $112,000 on this search," Miller said.
He also said he went to Orlando because Caylee's grandmother, Cindy Anthony, called him and asked him to come.
"Basically crying and saying, 'Can you help find my granddaughter?'" Miller said.
Miller said he was shocked to hear Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, tell the jury that the toddler was never missing. During opening statements of the murder trial against Casey Anthony, Baez said that Caylee drowned in the family's back yard swimming pool.
"Why in the world did you call us on a girl that was not missing?" said Miller. "So, we were misled. We were lied to, and right now, we are certainly looking at all of our options to possibly file a lawsuit."
Texas EquuSearch relies on donations. Miller said he owes it to his donors to try and get that money back.
"I think it is only fair that we try to recoup that money," Miller said.
Miller said he is talking with his attorney to discuss his options and said if he does file a lawsuit, it will happen soon. "
The state of Fl also filed papers to have Casey Anthony pay the costs of the investigation & her prosecution. Which is only fair, being as she now says she knew Caylee was dead the entire time. The next court date on this matter is set for late August with JP.
I urge all of you that are unhappy with this miscarriage of justice, to boycott anything that will have Casey Anthony benefiting from Caylee's death. #1 ABC, not only did they pay a juror to speak also Baez. This Facebook page details what companies are paying for information.
Also go here & add your signature for Caylee's Law. This law would make it illegal to not report a child missing within a specific amount of time. One would think that child neglect would cover this, but as we have seen in the verdict it does not.
No more nightly posts surrounding this evil woman. I will continue to pass on interesting pieces of information & articles.
