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 wonder what happens with her family now. She's accused her Father and Brother of sex abuse. Her Mother lied for her on the stand. Is she welcome in her own home? The family is in shambles I would imagine.

I am glad that she was found NOT GUILTY on the charges of First-Degree Murder, Involuntary Manslaughter, and Aggravated Child Abuse. The book should be thrown at her for lying to law enforcement. Other than that, I believe she had nothing to do with the death of her daughter. Congrats to you Casey.

This is unreal. She did it, and EVERYONE knows it. A little girl is dead and NOTHING is being done about it? This is so wrong. Gap in the evidence? What mother who loves her child doesn't report her missing for 30 days? Are you kidding me?????? I am sick to my stomach.

Karma, do your job on Casey Anthony.

You are all so dumb. There was never enough evidence to prove Casey did do it. "IF THE GLOVE DON'T FIT YOU CAN'T CONVICT".

Do I think her and her father did do it is a YES but there was never enough evidence that she did and in a court of law you have to prove by resonable doubt that she did do it. Jose is the man. Ill take a shot for Casey tonight.

Un-fu**ing believable. Are you kidding me? You saw how OJ's life was after he was found not guilty. Enjoy your freedom of hiding in your house Casey. This makes me sick.

It's telling that her own parents looked shocked, and got up and walked out. They smelled the decomposition, they heard the bold face lies, and they saw firsthand the lack of remourse. On the one hand this is their daughter, but on the other they know she played a part in the murder of their granddaughter, whether on purpose or accidental manslaughter. I can understand that the jury had no solid proof to convict her of premeditated first degree murder, but I can't believe they couldn't at least settle on *involuntary manslaughter.* Casey did *something* to that girl, and the smell in her car proves it.
