Casey Anthony Files For Bankruptcy

(CBS/AP) TAMPA, Fla. – Casey Anthony, the Florida mother who was acquitted in 2011 of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, filed for bankruptcy Friday and claimed about $1,100 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities, according to court records.

Anthony sought Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in federal court in Tampa. Her listed debts include $500,000 for attorney fees and costs for Jose Baez, her criminal defense lawyer during the trial; $145,660 for the Orange County Sheriff’s office for a judgment covering investigative fees and costs related to the case; $68,540 for the Internal Revenue Service for taxes, interest and penalties; and $61,505 for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for court costs.

She is also a defendant in several civil suits, including a defamation lawsuit brought by Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez in Orange County Circuit Court, court records say.

Fernandez-Gonzalez alleged that her reputation was damaged when Anthony told detectives that a baby sitter that shared her name kidnapped Caylee. Caylee disappeared in 2008 and was later found dead. Anthony’s attorney said details offered by Anthony did not match Fernandez-Gonzalez and clearly showed Anthony wasn’t talking about her.

Court papers list Anthony as unemployed, with no recent income.

Anthony lists about 80 creditors in the 60-page court filing. The claims largely cover fees for legal, medical, psychiatric and forensics consulting or services. But one claim covers a debt for scuba diving services.

According to the courts, the aim of seeking Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection is to be discharged of most existing debts – essentially to obtain a fresh financial start. A trustee may have the right to take possession of and sell non-exempt property and use the sale proceeds to pay creditors, but Anthony lists little in the way of assets. A debtor may still be held responsible for some obligations, such as taxes and student loans.

The filing came on the same day that a Florida appellate court set aside two of the four convictions she faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her missing daughter.

Although Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee, jurors convicted her of four counts of lying to detectives, and her attorneys appealed those convictions. Anthony was sentenced to time served for the misdemeanors.

She was sentenced to a year of probation after her release from jail for an unrelated case. For her protection, her whereabouts have been kept secret since she was released from state supervision last year.

  1. Dino I agree there are many bankrupcy cases due to very tragic circumstances. I don’t go for the people that shop till they drop, cruises etc. then they decide they can not pay the bills so bankrupcy 2, 3X is just wrong.

    I think the American public needs to be outraged by this BK filing. How can you commit the atrocities she committed, lie about them, engage all of these business entities who swallow your lies hook, line, and sinker, they give up revenue because they’ve taken on you as a client, and you, the client LIED ABOUT IT THE WHOLE TIME. Now you want to hide behind BK?

    That is effin disgusting, morally wrong, and absolutely should not be allowed. I would be very surprised if this BK is granted.

    Why is George Anthony listed as one of creditors? Did he bill her for the new lock on the shed to protect his gas cans?

    Thanks Dino. I can’t wait to see her have to be accountable for at least something.
    I find those pictures of her sitting by the beach doing nothing so annoying. Best way to pay off those debts, go do something useful.

    LOL
    I sort of remember that george’s duct tape came from a former job of his. “Light fingered Louie”” taught his daughter well? Maybe, maybe not. Was it Henkel Tape?

    Maybe It owes Its daddy for security deposit and first and last months rent on her current condo/apartment?
    Do we know how much she is supposed to owe to each person or company? How much fore daddy?
    No, I can’t read the whole thing. Rolls Eyes 60 some pages.

    Yes, dead squirrels, kc owes her parents for everything, including her non-education.

    I believe those were pretty expense laundry bags by the look of the one kc didn’t use to bury her daughter in.

    Remember mallory and wee lee choosing a $400 laundry bag on their wish list for their wedding gifts? Who would buy such an item for a newly wed ordinary couple. Who could afford that that they knew? Odd choice of gift requests in my mind.

    Who would even list a $400 laundry bag on their wish list? I’m a dollar store dolly and I don’t understand $INdy and the rest of the ant hill gang wanting the “best” of everything.

    Functional laundry bags = sanity.

    Luxury if you can afford it for pretty things.

    jlca-Hi!! Yes, she listed Tim Miller,as well as TexasEqua Search. I don’t believe she will be discharged from the Civil Suits,as according to the Bankruptcy Code U.S.C. 11 523(a)(6) willful and malacious actions are not dischargeable. This is what Atty Morgan will go for.

    Dino have I told you lately that I love you?? LOL! You always make my day!! THANKS!

    I hope someone in the BK Trustee’s office flags this filing. Oh, how I’d love it if fraud was found. Come on trifling Skank Tramp, would you sell all of your clothing for $100? Give me a break!!! Zero living expenses? Give me a break!!!

    At some point her “luck” has to end. I just hope I’m alive long enough to see that day!

    In Trunkmom’s “list of assets” does she include the necklace in which Caylee’s ashes reside?

    lovekats7…

    I forgot to say how sorry I am for what you went through but so very grateful for sharing your experience. God bless!

    Thank you so much for such a nice reply, it wasn’t easy. It was a last resort, i hated having to do it. I know every state has different rules but i would guess it’s basically the same. I took the online class, it was 100.00 and about 15 chapters. You study one, take a test, move to the next. It took about 4 hours and then i printed out the certificate for the court and lawyer. My lawyer was very good, i am so appreciative. One medical crisis can be devastating. Thanks again for your kindness, i kept all my paperwork so if there is ever a question i might be able to answer i would be glad to try.
