Casey Anthony's Lawyer Insists 'She Didn't Kill Caylee & She's Not A Liar!'

Mon, July 11, 2011 5:28pm EDT by 9 Comments

The attorney who helped the accused child-killer beat death row insists he never doubted she was innocent of murdering her daughter.

As Casey Anthony prepares to walk free from jail, Cheney Mason also claims her LIES were just a ‘protective mechanism.’ Wow! Do you agree?“I do believe her story. I believed it from the first time I met her. I have never for one minute had any doubt at all.” Cheney Mason tells the Today Show, “She did not kill her child. Period.”

During her six week trial, Casey was exposed as a skilled liar. Her murder jury heard how she told police hunting for Caylee a string of misleading tales — including lies about where she worked and the identity of a fictional nanny who was supposedly caring for her daughter.

Although she was found not guilty of Caylee’s murder, she was convicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement officers.

But Cheney Mason insists she was just protecting herself! He says, “There’s no question that she told a lot of stories to friends for protective mechanism and I think we presented evidence for that.”

What do you think about her lawyer’s comments, HollyMoms? Does he REALLY think she’s innocent?!

Has anyone looked up her attorney on Wikepedia? It took him 8 yrs to be accepted to the bar because of bad check writing, back child support etc. If her lies were true about molestation why didn’t a nurse, teacher or student come forward all lies. The truth is she put nail polish remover on a rag put little Caylee in her back seat went out and partied came back and she was dead. Then she got away with murder so sad. We lost our son in a terrible auto accident and our lives are changed forever but for me she has no soul and cares only for herself. God will give her justice. Remember there are a lot of Hinkleys running around

I don’t belelie one ounce of that crap about Caylee drowning in the Anthony pool. She got off because the jury wanted to get it over fast and go home. They really did not deliberate. They took the easy way out and that is why so many Americans are ticked off and want justice for little Caylee. Cheney Mason is a total moron. You can bet your last dollar that Casey is laughing at the defense team for being so darn gullible and believing her. WE Americans are not so gullible Casey…We know you did do it. I hope you enjoy your life. NOT!!!

So sad and so far from the truth on what happened! It’s to bad that she has to suffer and have the whole world hate her for something she didnt do! People these days will believe anything they see on tv or hear from someone else and its a shame that she is the one you all think did it! Everyone is so close minded these days that if they only looked deeper they would see that there was a very good reason why she lied yet no one will ever know and that’s why this world isn’t so bad of a place

He’s defending her b/c he’s a FAME WHORE who wants to be relevant! Oh he is relevant now…DAMN LIAR!! Dumb A** forgot about the 2008 interview huh?! Go to YouTube, you’ll find his interview.

She should’ve been charged with aggravated manslaughter & child negligence, as the very least. The jurors were exhausted, lazy, did NOT take notes, did NOT review the evidence thoroughly, did NOT request a review of evidence!! She won’t be able to hide ANYWHERE!

If her legal team LOVE her so much, they can create a rotating schedule to house, feed & financially support Murderess-Momster! Then they’ll have the FULL flavor of her lying, stealing, scheming, conning. Let’s see the followup interviews in 3-5 years!

He should leave his checkbook around her and see how trustworthy she is then!

He's the liar

This is the same lawyer who, before he took the case, said on national television that there was plenty of evidence to convict Casey and he predicted she would get life in prison. Go look up his interview. It’s very telling.

Here’s a question the interviewer should have asked Casey’s lawyer:
If Caylee really died in an accident, why not say so when she was charged with capital murder? Why let a mom sit in a jail cell for 3 years and face the death penalty if her child died accidentally?
Every year, children die in pool drownings and other accidents, and their parents are never charged with any crime. Even if Casey had covered up the accidental death (for whatever reason) why continue the cover-up?
