Aftermath

Casey Anthony Could Be Released Thursday

After her surprising acquittal on murder charges, Casey Anthony could walk free on Thursday for the first time in three years. While she faces a year in prison for each of the four misdemeanor counts of lying to law enforcement of which she was convicted, her lawyer will seek a sentence for time served and her release. Anthony’s plans, should she be released, are unclear. She faces concerns about her safety; she is unlikely to be received by her parents, whom she charged with abuse during the trial; and she is a high-school dropout with limited work experience.
