Casey Anthony will be a free woman on July 17th. Based on calculations by the Judge, the 4-year sentence handed down for lying to police, will be a wash due to time-served.
This case has infuriated as many as the O.J. Simpson trial. The announcement of her quick release is certain to heighten that frustration, but she may wish they would have kept her longer. It will be a long hard road for her in the “real world” going forward.
Prior to the Judge providing the timeline, she sat smiling at her attorney’s, looking like she was on her way to Disney World. It’s amazing that she can feel any happiness at this moment. Although she now will have her freedom, where is her heartfelt sorrow for the loss of Caylee. This should be a bitter-sweet moment for her, not just sweet.
And we wonder why so many still believe she is guilty. As juror number three announced today, in a press conference, “not guilty, does not mean innocent.”
