Casey Anthony

Files for Bankruptcy

1/27/2013 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0127_Casey-Anthony_gettyCasey Anthony is looking to make a fresh start ... financially speaking ... and has filed for bankruptcy in Florida.

Anthony, who had two of her convictions for lying to authorities tossed out on Friday, filed for Chapter 7 protection in a Tampa court on the same day.

In the docs, Anthony says she owes almost $800,000 to about 80 creditors and has no income to speak of. Among her debts:

-- $500,000 to lead defense attorney Jose Baez.

-- $145,660 to the Orange County Sheriff's Office

-- $68,540 to the IRS

Not listed among her creditors ... Home Depot.

Anthony is also in the middle of defending herself from a defamation lawsuit from Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, who claims Anthony ruined her reputation.

Praying that she's caught filing a fake form like the Guidices and she goes to jail for trying to game the system. You just have to hope that, like OJ, someone like her who gets away with her BS eventually gets caught & pays for it. Baez already was paid a ton so he probably doesn't care and, even worse, the Florida taxpayers PAID for that beyotch to literally get away with murder. Gotta hope those idiot jurors get some karma coming their way, too.

Well, she can't claim the IRS in a bankruptcy. What a stupid bitch. With someone so calculated like that you would think that she would know that government loans or taxes cannot be included.

I try to never post anything too harsh, but you know, there's just something so vile about Casey Anthony that she just brings out these emotions from most people that even discuss her. You're a terrible person, Casey. As a mother myself, my God as a HUMAN BEING, I can't even begin to fathom how you could do that to your child. Your entire existence will be a miserable one. You may have fooled the justice system, but your life will never be a normal and happy one. You're not even remotely sorry about what you did, which is why I believe you're a sociopath. Jose Baez is unfortunately a friend of one of my family members, so I've had the "pleasure" to meet him. His pompous attitude is rather humorous now, considering he's out a half million dollars. Mr. Baez, do you remember when you flipped off the reporters gathered outside the bar after Casey's acquittal. I think that's hilarious now...Miss Anthony just gave you the ultimate "f*ck you".

she only got away with killing her kid because shes a woman because if a man would have done something like this they would have given him the death penalty an i know all of you women out there will not agree with what i'm saying but you know it's true. The system is way to easy on women i would have loved to see her get put in prison and get the hell beat out of her daily for what she did

I want to know how this bankruptcy can bring Casey Anthony closer to closure,Baez and Casey both accused daddy George of molesting both Casey and Caylee,something should be done by the police.either cleared or in jail,SOMEONE has to answer for a child in a swamp eaten by snakes and ratsTHERE IS NO CLOSURE,until who put Caylee in the swamp has to answer for that CRIME
