Court sets aside 2 of Casey Anthony’s convictions

FOX NEWS: ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida appellate court has set aside two of the four convictions Casey Anthony faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her missing 2-year-old daughter.

Judges on the 5th District Court of Appeals agreed with Anthony’s attorneys Friday that two of the charges constituted double jeopardy, or being convicted more than once for the same crime.

The judges, however, ruled that the trial court was correct to allow her statements to detectives to be used during her murder trial.

Anthony’s attorneys had argued that she was in police custody at the time and hadn’t been read her Miranda rights.

Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee in 2011. Jurors convicted her of four counts of lying to detectives, and her attorneys appealed those convictions

    LadyRider, I appreciate as well as feel badly that you have first hand experience with bankruptcy.

    My question is how can she claim relief from Brad Conway when he didn’t represent Casey but instead represented her parents? I”m sure this is a ploy to relieve the Anthonys from paying Conway but I can’t figure out how she can legitimately claim their debt under her bankruptcy?

  2. Sounds to me like George and Cindy just tried to help her along on things to claim to file on. Make it look more in debt that way.

    Morgandy, I would think it would hurt the legitimacy of her filing if her debt was falsely claimed – not to mention she signed under oath that the debt listed is accurate.
