Casey Anthony --

NOT GUILTY of Murder

7/5/2011 11:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony was just found NOT GUILTY of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in Florida back in 2008.

Casey Anthony Verdict
Casey was found GUILTY on four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

Anthony was teary-eyed as the verdict was read.  A judge has ordered Anthony to be fingerprinted immediately.

Anthony faces up to 4 years in state prison for lying to the cops -- one year for each count. Sentencing has been scheduled for Thursday morning.

Casey's parents seemed shocked when the first not guilty verdict was read -- and they got up and walked out of the courtroom during the reading.

After the judge wrapped things up, Anthony finally smiled and shared a giant embrace with her lawyer.

Anthony has been locked up for the past three years ... which will count as time served against any sentence that the judge may hand down.

OJs jury strikes again

Casey thought she could lie her way out of anything. Casey thought she was smarter than everyone else. The jury just proved she was right.

Unfortunately, when you take someone to trial with small particles of evidence, it can backfire. This wasn't a miscarriage of justice, this was a well executed crime. No matter what REALLY happened, the lack of evidence worked in favor of whoever was responsible

This is awesome! She didn't kill that little girl but i'm sure she knows something about who did. Amazing how Judgmental american people are, wanting her to be guilty of the crime when in fact the LAW says she is not. Awesome win for Casey Anthony!

I am STUNNED.

It smells like the OJ verdict all over again.

I hope she rots in hell. I hope she dies a horrible, horrible death like her poor child did. There is absolutely NO question in my mind that she killed Cayley.

This is simply unbelievable, ESPECIALLY after her attorney did such a piss-poor job.

What a sad, sad day for justice in this country.

I was involved with the King Boys trial after which so many felt that it was a vesty of justice; no, THIS is a travesty of justice. No ONE, especially her family, will not speak for this dead little girl...Our system has failed miserably

It's O.J all over again. How ridiculous. Part of her punishment should be sterilizing her because you know this will happen again once she gets out.
