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

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?!
