Casey Anthony Could Walk Free! Legal Experts Poke Holes In The Case Against Her!

Wed, June 22, 2011 1:10pm EDT by 13 Comments

She may be a proven liar who partied after her daughter disappeared — but that doesn’t make her a murderer, seasoned defense attorneys warn.

The prosecution amassed a mountain of evidence linking Casey Anthony to the murder of her daughter Caylee, but almost all of its circumstantial and MAY NOT be enough to convict her.

“This is definitely not a slam dunk case,” Florida A&M University law professor Karin Moore tells People Magazine. “The state doesn’t have an eyewitness. They don’t have a confession, so most of the evidence is circumstantial.”

Those convinced of Casey’s guilt will point towards the string of lies the 25-year-old told investigators and the photos of her partying in the days after Caylee vanished.

But Karin Moore insists that’s not enough to convince a jury of her guilt, beyond reasonable doubt.

She adds, “party pictures can prove that she was out partying later, but not that she intentionally killed [her daughter]. Being a liar does not mean she’s a murderer.”

New York-based defense attorney Stuart Slotnick agrees — and insists Casey’s jury WILL be aware of holes in the case against her.

He tells People, “There are gaps in the prosecution’s theories, and the jury will notice them.”

Casey is accused of murdering two-year-old Caylee and dumping her body in a woodland near the family home in Orlando, Florida in 2008. If found guilty of first degree murder she faces a possible death sentence.

She is Guilty and if she gets to walk free on technicalities than there is no justice in this country. She is a very demented and sick individual to of taken the life of her own child just so she could go and party if she did not want the baby there are plenty of couples out there that would of taken her and raised her to be a fine and outstanding adult. She needs to die for taking the life o another person let alone that person being a baby who could not defend herself. Prison is to good for this witch.

yea bcuz for 3 yrs her family is going to let her sit in jail when all this time it was an accidental drowning… what a bunch of lies… we have no idea how she died, but she was under her care, & her care alone & the failure to notify anyone including her parents for 30 days or the web of lies she gave the police & her family, not to mention the parties she went to & things she did is enough for any jury to convict.. remember actions speak louder than words & as far as i am concerned that is her confession to the world.

Did she do it, I think so, but beyond reasonable doubt, no way. That is why she will walk. This is why so many cases are overturned due to DNA these days. People are guilty until proven innocent in this country for some reason.
If a mother can drown her 5 kids in Texas and claim post pardem depression, and walk, then why can’t she claim the same.

I have watched this trial from the beginning and have “pretended” from the beginning that I was a juror, looking at all the evidence (all that I could see) and weighing it as to her guilt or innocence. I am just a normal, every day person who has worked in the medical field 28 years. Casey Anthony is guilty. In my heart I know this woman killed that gorgeous baby girl. To me she deserved a life sentence for all the lies she has told officials. I do not believe in the death penalty though and even if she got sentenced to death, it would never happen. She will end up spending her life prison.

No….we will kill her here in Florida if she is sentenced to it. We take care of our business here unlike other places.

So after watching all the evidence, you decide she is guilty based on a feeling in your heart??? Dismissed.

People are convicted of circumstantial evidence everyday in the criminal justice system. I strongly disagree with Karen Moores’ legal assessment that due to the fact that their are no eyewitnesses or a confession somehow translates into a not guilty verdict. I dare to say that most murderers especially ones involving children have any eyewitnesses or confessions. The defense lost this trial from my perspective in the opening statement. Hopefully, they will be better prepared for Phase 2.

Phase two? They can’t charge her with murder again if she’s found not guilty. Haven’t you ever heard of double jeopardy?

Its amazing how people are always quick to blame someone because there is someone easy to blame and not because they can prove someone is guilty. I agree with the verdict. She was a liar but when you cant even prove how she was involved in …the murder and that she did anything, this is what happens
