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 think we should be more interested in what type of employment Casey will acquire? I also believe NO JUROR should receive money for any future interviews. Any media publication i.e. book publishers, television, movie producers ~ should be boycotted and send your letters and emails in protest! I hope the only media outlets that decide to update the public on Casey Anthony, should be providing information on Casey Anthony's new Employment as follows: "BABYSITTER FOR HIRE" and she should call it: "Casey's TLC, Never Guilty (especially if your child comes up missing) Trusted & Believable Babysitting Service"...a good mother who only uses Chloroform on your child if they misbehave!!! Let's sign-up the Jury's kids First! "Any woman who takes their child, smothers them with Chloroform, covers the mouth and face with duct-tape, puts them in a garbage bag, stashes them in the trunk, throws the body into a woody swamp area, parties for 31 days, lies about where her daughter is and is found Innocent ~ simply because they couldn't find out exactly when and how ~ should be awarded with the honor of announcing to the public her Day-Care~Babysitting" new business. Don't you agree?

Everybody keeps throwing around this "beyond a reasonable doubt "

Yes prosecutors must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, but that does not mean they have to remove all doubt. Just reasonable doubt..

Casey by her very own words did that when she told her 2 versions of what happened to her daughter.

The kidnapped, but no call to the cops version as well as the my kid drowned, but I did not call EMS version.

There may be reasonable doubt as to murder 1, but there is no reasonable doubt that she was at the very least criminally negligent. And she should have been convicted of child abuse

Was this judge for real? Was he apologetic for giving her $1000 fine for each lie? There is something VERY wrong with our judiciary system.Who is going to pay for all the work the law enforcement had to perform because of her lies?

AH    

I was sick to hear how this liar and obviously mentally ill person will be set free. How can a mom act and lie the way she did? She is getting away with murder and we will never know what happened to that precious little girl. I hope to god she never has another child!

The prosecutors didn't prove a case. I personally think it was an accident gone terribly wrong. She had no reason to kill Caylee as her parents were more than willing and happy to take care of Caylee if Casey wanted to go live a life of partying.

AH,

While you are being sick, why don't you try reconciling your two contradictory statements that Casey is a murderer yet you have no idea what happened to Caylee. If Casey is a murderer, then you KNOW what happened to Caylee.

But you don't KNOW what really happened to Caylee, so you are falsely accusing Casey. You may not like Casey or her behavior but like her atty pointed out that doesn't make her a murderer.

so you know she just happened to change her story like 6 times, gave fake leads to the cops, blamed her own father and looked up uses for chloroform. and on caylees remains, there happened to be traces of chloroform and gasoline. and there was traces of chloroform in the bitches trunk but what ever i mean she totally didn't do anything right? you have to admit its kind of ****** up

was it only 6 times? I thought it was more.

She did what she always does, she lied. It doesn't make her a murderer; it just makes her the Grande Dame of liars.

It is refreshing that a jury FINALLY judged a case on evidence presented and not their OWN emotinal feelings about the subject or create their own scenarios to fill in the gaps.

Do us all a favor and asked to be excused from jury duty, you are not capable of following a judge's instructions.

There was less evidence in the Scott Peterson trial , AND the CAUSE of DEATH was NOT KNOWN, (but like the Casey Anthony trial, the MANNER of death was deemed homicide). And Scott Peterson was convicted, and ended up on death row. Jurors DO NOT have to know the CAUSE of DEATH, but are required to weigh all of the existing evidence and conditions, to consider a preponderance of evidence, and to make a studied, intelligent decision based on that . Beyond a reasonable doubt DOES NOT mean 100% proof, and that they have to be have a video tape of the homicide!!!!!!! This jury did not understand what was required of them. They are not very intelligent and are slow witted, but now they are demanding payments well in excess of $10,000 to go on the news shows, and they ALSO want luxury vacations to be thrown in as part of their fees!!!! Not very intelligent, or very decent people, but oh yes , very cunning and very self centered!!! NO saints among that lot!!!!
