Casey Anthony's Lawyer -- 911 Call Over Death Threats

7/20/2011 3:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The wife of Cheney Mason -- Casey Anthony's lawyer -- frantically dialed 911 last night, claiming the family has received SEVERAL death threats ... and she fears for her life.

One of the messages, according to the 911 call -- "Your scumbag husband and Baez [Casey's other attorney] better sleep with one eye open."

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the Masons have requested extra police presence around their Florida home.

To accommodate the family, we're told cops in Seminole County will perform multiple drive-bys daily to make sure everyone's safe.

We're told the Seminole County Sheriff's Office is also working with the State Attorney to acquire phone records to track down the callers.

Cheney ****ily taunts everyone no one will ever find Casey Anthony -- but they eventually found all the Nazi's in hiding. The person that finds Casey will be an international celebrity. The person the finds and tracks down Casey will be on talk shows and they can make a million dollars. That's a hell of a bounty on Casey's head. ANYONE can be found, Mr Cheney. Even you. Remember Osama Bin Laden? He is now at the bottom of the ocean. Cheney is an IDIOT for daring folks to locate Casey when so much money is at stake. There are folks hunting for her right now, including hundreds of press members. She WILL be found and sooner than anyone thinks. Too bad for Casey. Remember Caylee everyone!! The REAL VICTIM!

to fffffffffffffffffffffffffffff:

she was NOT found innocent. Not guilty just means there wasn't enough proof in their little inbred minds... but even the jury thinks she IS guilty of something, they just felt it wasn't proven.

i'm a lawyer!    

it's ridiculous that people are harassing them, but not unexpected. i hope nobody follows through with any threats. there's no need for vigilante justice things tend to work out on there own.

Those threatening are monsters, the same as her, maybe even more. They are no better than Casey.

File that lawsuit, I am Lindsay Lohan!    

People are just beyond silly. Don't they get that they are defense lawyers and were only doing their job. I really do hope they find the ones making those threats and prosecute them. Casey was acquitted of murder (not that it means she isn't guilty) by the American court system. I am no Casey fan but lets follow the law here and stop acting like spoiled children.

maybe Mason should think twice before publicly celebrating in public a trial he may have won but is in no way less tragic when he defends a murderer. His first press conference after the verdict he cried like a baby about the press said nothing about that poor child Caylee. Afterwards at a restaurant his public display of himself was a manner in which one would deem inappropriate to say the least, Oh and lets not forget him flipping the bird. When one shows no respect one shall get no respect. Go f**k off Mason, you pig.

Casey Anthony is probably in a small village in Mexico by now, she was allegedly in Southern California, so it would be just a small drive to Mexico.

He should change his name to Ryan, and Harvey will protect him.

It's no less evil to threaten the lives of innocents than what most of you think Casey is responsible for. He's a defense attorney, he did his job. Threatening his family is the act of cowards.

Vengeance is not justice. Don't be naive enough to think otherwise.
