I don't believe they are allowed to dock you for serving on a jury. I had to give my $35 a day back to my employer.

Most cases take a day, two at the most. My case was four days.
Lots of companies will pay for a few days of Jury Duty. But not for weeks. They aren't allowed to fire you for serving on a jury but they don't have to pay your regular salary while you are serving either. At least not where I live.



There have been lots of movies about unsympathetic characters ... including mothers who killed their young children ... Small Sacrifices with Farrah Fawcett is just one.
Yes, but that was a movie based on a book written by a True Crimes author with no involvement from the mother -- who was convicted of a crime. There can be movies made about this that are not made with the cooperation of the Anthony family. Anything made with the family will try to paint Casey in a good light and will make them money. I think that movie would be a hard sell at this point. But anyone can make a movie based on news without having to pay the people involved.


she'll burn thru that money in about 8-10 years.
I think you are being optimistic. I'd give it 3 years tops.



But my question that no one else answered still stands: Did science fail Caylee?
Of course not. It's not science that cause the prosecution to go for murder one or to not perform certain tests. People did that.

Hmmm. Do people know anything about this site? Sounds interesting and plausible. The chloroform thing for one. I didn't know about this use of it. :fragile:

true true - but what annoys me is that the author got her facts wrong (not unusual, I realize); it was Casey's mother who looked up chloroform, she admitted it on the stand right towards the end.

I would have loved to see Nancy Grace's head explode!

But Scott Peterson was a whole different case. He was cheating on her, so did he want to be married to her? Did he want to be a father? Doubtful.

I didn't see the prosecutor in this case bring in a string of character witnesses against Casey saying she was sick of being a mother and wanted to dump her daughter somewhere. All the photos and videos I saw showed a pretty good mom. Now I understand not everything is as it appears, but when everyone found out she was missing, how many of her friends and family came forward against Casey and said she was a bad mother and abused her daughter and was mean to her and said she didn't want to be a mom any more?

The prosecution went for the jugular because they thought they could tug at the jurors' heart strings and they would forget all about the facts; they were able to see beyond that. Hopefully other lawyers will learn from his mistake.

Exactly - and actually several of her friends said, on the stand, that she was a wonderful mother.

My guess, who knows what happened but once she discovered her kid was missing she was scared - she lived in a nightmare family, by what I see, who didn't approve of her or support her and scared the hell out of her.

Regardless of how this went down, I hope she finds a way to live a good and happy life - although, it will be almost impossible, she is very distinctive looking. I just hope no one does her harm by taking the law in their own hands.

No that was disproved. Cindy was at work.

Very sad situation but the jurors were correct in acquitting Casey Anthony of the three serious counts for which there was not enough proof beyond a reasonable doubt. That's the law.

As for her future, Casey should change her name and identity and flee to another country far, far away, for her own protection. The only thing that might keep her in the US would be the allure of profiting and doing the talk-show circuit. That would be a huge mistake, in the long run. She needs to GO -- Paraguay, Vanuatu, Thailand, wherever...but not an easy fix like Mexico or Canada. Far, FAR AWAY.

Good advice. Another country is welcome to her. The U.S. has enough psychos.

The mother did say that.....little problem...Cindy lied...she was at worl when the searches were made.

I suppose it is plausible. If it did happen, there should be some way of finding proof - videos, photos. Though, it is speculation, just like we have been speculating on how Caylee died.

Lawyers, if it did come out that Casey was pimping out her daughter, would that charge be separate enough from the murder charge to retry her?

It is simply surreal watching this. I have such hate and contempt for this woman (and I know that is on me)...but geesh. As Shepard Smith (Fox News) said last night "There is a special place in hell reserved for this woman".........her behavior in that 31 days is simply NOT forgivable.

IMO - looks like Cindy is ready to take her home. Boy, they deserve each other.

If, in fact, Casey was pimping her daughter, that charge might be separate enough to justify new charges and a new trial. There are also a lot of federal laws that could be involved (child labor, child porn, etc.); if, in fact, a federal law is violated then there can be a second trial, with no problems.

And my personal favorite. "I was framed by the cops once. They gave me a DUI after I crashed my car. I mean, I was drunk, but not legally drunk."

:yikes: that anybody could be that shameless. :scream:

You didn't? Read the whining in the "rich should pay there fair share of taxes" thread.

Looks like Casey is staying in jail for a little longer.
