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

okerry okerry

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!

Wow: So if you commit a crime, just don't say anything and you will get off. What about justice for the dead baby? Casey Anthony will probably be sentenced to a few months jail and that will cover her time already spent in jail. Thursday night she will be back at the club!

I guess the jurors just wanted to go home. Sad.

The devil is winning in this world.

Oh--and now this!! Hilarious!
Toy Stores Cashing In On Casey Anthony’s Imaginary Friend: Zanny the Nanny

The verdict is in: Not Guilty. Closing arguments in the Casey Anthony murder trial ended with the prosecution telling jurors that the death of 3 year old Caylee is no mystery. They described Casey Anthony as a pathological liar who diverted attention away from herself by insisting her dead daughter had been kidnapped by Caylee’s caretaker Zenaida Gonzalez. The babysitter is affectionately known as “Zanny the Nanny” and has become a hot item in toy stores.

“Zanny has started to morph into a cult figure,” said Emily Kindy from outside the courtroom. “My girlfriend bought the ‘Zanny the Nanny Doll’ as a gag gift for a baby shower.” The site http://zenaidagonzalez.com is offering the doll complete with resume and references and vendors on Amazon.com are selling them at 39.00 each.

Casey Anthony claimed Zanny “The Nanny” had been watching Caylee since April 2006 and then kidnapped her on June 9, 2008. Anthony said she met Gonzalez in 2004 through Universal Studios co-worker Jeffrey Hopkins. The tot mom said Gonzalez was a seasonal employee at Universal Studios and was originally from New York.

She is also serving 412 days jail time for check fraud, so those will be applied to time served. I believe she's served about 2 years right now, so with the possible 4 years added on and time served, she may still be in jail for 3 more years.

The Truth    

So Sad.

Now the Governor of Florida Rick Scott, Republican has made a statement agreeing with the verdict. Saying justice has been served.

I guess now Florida and the people of Florida like the Jury has now made it the “Kill a Child and Get away with Murder State”.

There are so many great and good people from Florida that now suffer like the poor child has because the courts there, backed by the Rick Scott, Republican Governor and the jury let this happen.

No justice was served. A poor young child was murdered ….and the murderer goes free…no justice.

Not safe to vacation in Florida with child murderers running the streets.

It will be interesting to see her walk out the jail door. Her parents were stone faced and left right away. Who will take her in. How can they be hugging, laughing smiling, a baby still died. This gets me sick, but I am sure her life will still be hell.

I bet she signs a book deal by the end of the week, and is a reality tv and/or porn star by this time next year. She stands to make more money off of this spectacle than I'll see in my life.

Way to go, America.

The jury will have to live with this decision and yet they will have the notoriety that will that will let them go into public and sell their story. I am ashamed of humankind at this moment...may God have mercy on all of us.

We continue to let horrible people get away with horrendous acts and continue to allow our justice system to lock up innocent people. This is disgusting. I feel sick to my stomach.

GoBears!!!!!    

Hard part is this...someone killed her...but there is no proof CASEY did...she probably knew or took part...but no proof. With the amount of people it could have been........hard to prove SHE did. I have to agree with the jury as much as I wanted to see someone go down and something to come to the surface to prove who killed her....the jury made the right decision.
Unfortunately we will never know. It is a sad shame. That poor angel deserved better than that entire family. Mom, Dad, brother, mother. All of them.
