After less then 11 hours of deliberation, the jurors in the Casey Anthony Murder trial reached a verdict and found Casey Anthony not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter. She was only convicted of four counts of lying to investigators looking into the June 2008 disappearance of her daughter Caylee. She will be sentenced by the judge on those charges on Thursday.
“While we’re happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case,” Baez said after the hearing. “Caylee has passed on far, far too soon and what my driving force has been for the last three years has been always to make sure that there has been justice for Caylee and Casey because Casey did not murder Caylee. It’s that simple. And today our system of justice has not dishonored her memory by a false conviction.”
