By the way, Marcia Clark is on NBC and she looks really good. She doesn't look anything like she did when prosecuting OJ. I wouldn't have known who she.

One more thing...NBC reported that Casey already has a $68,000 tax levy because ABC paid her $200,000 and she didn't report it. Wow!

Just in -

..ORLANDO, Florida (AP) — A judge has sentenced Casey Anthony to four years in prison for lying to investigators but says she can go free in late July or early August because she has already served nearly three years in jail and has had good behavior.

The judge sentenced Anthony on Thursday, two days after she was acquitted of first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee....

This is just, IMO. Let her sit in jail for another month and plan her move to Paraguay.

I think you are being optimistic. I'd give it 3 years tops.

Well MacMadame, considering the above quote from FiveRinger, I think 3 years is optimistic.

Well, is the child pornography theory had teeth, don't you guys think they would have found a way to charge her with that?

As I understand it, she got 4 years ... four counts of lying, maximum term, consecutively.

Casey looked really happy and relaxed as she walked into the courtroom. I'm glad Judge Perry gave her the max! I think she thought she was going to go home today!

Judge Perry is a :rockstar:

So a shallow question: do you think that loooong ponytail I saw on Casey at the reading of the verdict is extensions? If so, can you get extensions in jail?

I don't think so. She's been locked up for almost 3 years. If you grow 1/4" a hair a month, and no access to a beautician, it's no wonder her hair is long (and stringy).

I don't think she should have gotten max sentence, to be honest. If this wasn't a murder case and she had only had 4 counts of lying to police she probably would have served little or no time and gotten probation. I feel the judge let his own ideas of her guilt interfere with his sentencing on this one. Part of me is happy with it because I think she is guilty but she was acquitted whether I like it or not.

No. When Lil Kim went to jail, she had to remove her weave/extensions and her acrylic nails. Don't know why I was watching THAT reality show!

Oh I disagree here. Casey lead the police on a merry goose chase for six months. Costing the state tons of money. Also this was a murder case, and her dishonesty is the reason they couldn't get forensic evidence enough from the little girls body.

In these circumstances, she deserves the maximum sentence.

I think lying is a pretty big deal.
Let's say for a moment that Casey really didn't kill Caylee, but Caylee was murdered (as the autopsy found), not a cover up for an accident (really- who makes an accident look like murder? So confused by this notion). Her lies may have prevented the actual killer from being found. It also wasted TONS of money from the state and private individuals.

So to me, lying in a murder case investigation (even if you aren't the murderer) is a pretty big deal.


On another note-
I can't believe her mother hasn't been charged with perjury.

Just heard that the state is now trying to figure out what kind of fines will be levied against Casey. The $$$ money that was spent on the wild goose chases is being evaluated and the judge will impose that fine in about 30 days, after reviewing the costs.

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.

When did she pimp her daughter? and considering toddlers and tiaras what would you consider pimping out your daughter?
