NPR – Jurors’ Thinking In Casey Anthony Trial Starts To Emerge

Posted by 4love2love on July 6, 2011

Tuesday (July 5, 2011): Casey Anthony reacts to being found not guilty on murder charges.

Pool/Getty ImagesTuesday (July 5, 2011): Casey Anthony reacts to being found not guilty on murder charges.

The day-after stories about the not-guilty verdict for Florida mother Casey Anthony, who was accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in a case that has dominated the tabloids and cable news networks, include a clue to what the jurors were thinking.

— CBS News: “They didn’t show us how Caylee died, and that was important,” Russell Hueckler, an alternate juror, said of the prosecution. “No one could answer that.”

Meanwhile, as The Orlando Sentinel reports, “Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton on national television this morning said that he was shocked and bitterly disappointed by the jury’s decision to render not guilty verdicts on the major charges in the Casey Anthony case on Tuesday.”

The case continues to be a trending topic on Twitter, where most commenters seem to believe the jury made a mistake.

As for what’s next for Anthony, who is to be sentenced Thursday on the four counts of lying to authorities that she was convicted on, CNN reports that some legal experts say:

“Don’t be surprised if [she] walks out of jail a free woman after her sentencing. … And, they add, there is nothing stopping her from cashing in on book or movie deals — as her acquittal on serious charges now means she is free to profit off her story.”

And Fox News says Anthony can expect to “earn millions from [the] media, Hollywood.”

Others now in the spotlight thanks to the case include Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez. As the Miami Herald says, he is “a lawyer who came out of no where, was snickered at, laughed at, smeared, attacked and rebuked by the judge. In the end, the 42-year-old attorney who grew up in South Florida, came out on top.”

    Alitte late for the jurors to think now..Casey is free of all charges with the acception of lying to law inforcement…Lie to a police you could get time,kill your child and throw her in a swamp like she was nothing ,you get away free..This whole thing literally makes me sick…Casey threw Caylee away like trash and so did the justice system…..Way to late for the jurors to think!!!

      Well I found another article where they actually spoke to one of the jurors who said it broke their hearts to acquit her. They wanted to find her guilty but there just wasn’t enough evidence for them to give her first degree murder charges or any of the others. The prosecution’s case was entirely circumstancial, it could have been applied to everyone no matter what we truly feel is right. They wanted to convict her, but they also had to follow the law as well and unfortunately, the prosecution didn’t take enough time to gather more evidence and fumbling on the police matter when Kronk reported the body over a month before it was found before it was underwater for at least 2 weeks, where precious evidence got washed away. Had the body been found when he called it in the first time, we may not be looking at a not-guilty verdict here. Water removes way too much evidence; fingerprints, dna, hair and fibers, and a lot of other things. Even skin cells may have been found on the body or duct tape somewhere and the duct tape would have been closer to it’s original placement. There’s no telling because the police wouldn’t look. And now she’s walking free.

    I think those Jurors are out of their minds because they certainly did not have them with them during that trial..Where is the justice for little Caylee??? One juror called her a doting mother.. WHAT??? 31 days and no call to the police until grandma calls.., and not one tear for her child during the entire case except for herself.. A DOTING MOTHER ???? Was this juror asleep during the case… And I heard a juror say she did not believe in the death penalty, she said, that was Gods work. Then why is she on a death case trial…??? This case and what this jury did makes me sick, literally sick… This women was as guilty as could be, the world new and will always know, even her parents new she was guilty, where were those juror minds ??? Just wanting to get it over and go home.. No justice for Caylee…!!!!

      I absolutely disagree with the jurors on this one, but after reading what one had to say, I realized it’s not the jurors I’m angry at. It’s the police. If they would have found the body when Kronk first called them.. or even just frigging looked instead of getting pissy because his shoes got muddy, they would have found her and much more evidence would have been available. Even decaying outside, it wasn’t until it was underwater that much of the vital evidence needed to convict the killer was washed away and destroyed forever. Probably why it was put in that area and women are more known to bury or discard their dead children in someplace familiar, near or even in their homes.
