Initial Question: State of Florida v. Casey Marie AnthonyIn October 2008, Casey Anthony was arrested and charged with the disappearance and murder of her two year old daughter, Caylee. She was originally charged with giving false statements, child neglect, and obstruction of a criminal investigation – this was later expanded to include first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to police. In December 2008, Caylee’s skeletal remains were discovered.After a long contentious trial, on July 5 2011, the jury found Anthony not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter, and aggravated child abuse, and guilty on four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. Jurors cited lack of evidence directly linking Anthony to the murder.
On July 7, 2011 Anthony was sentenced to one year in jail and $1,000 in fines for each of the four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer, with the sentences to be served consecutively. Anthony received three years credit for time served plus additional credit for good behavior, resulting in her release date being set for July 13, 2011.
Questions: Emotions aside, do you believe the prosecution overcharged the case? Why or why not? Was there enough evidence to convict Anthony as she was charged? Why or why not? What are you thoughts on the evidence presented by the defense?
Classmate 1 Michael Wise: 1. Caylee Anthony deserved better. I believe the prosecution overcharged. I agree with criminologist Dr. Scott Bonn. He wrote an opinion piece (Bonn, 2019) where he opinedthat trying to prove something beyond a reasonable doubt in a death penalty case leaves the prosecution with a huge task on their hands. In such a case, the prosecution is asking people to execute someone and most of us are going to demand the prosecution give us significant proof before we will cross that line. You may be able to find a miniscule number of death penalty cases where circumstantial evidence convicted (such as Scott Peterson’s case), but that is not the norm.
The prosecution’s inability to prove motive was equally disastrous for them. Although they were able to prove she was an accomplished liar and avid party goer, they could not show she did not love or care for her daughter.
Nobody knows for sure how the jury would have responded if all they were doing was deciding guilt on a nonnegligent manslaughter or second-degree murder charge. But since both require far less criminal behavior than first-degree murder, there is a chance the jury would have convicted.
Dr. Bonn mentioned the theory of “collective efficacy.” That theory says that people who live in a community typically have a greater sense of moral responsibility and connection to that community. This trial was held in a city on the other side of Florida from where the crime happened so perhaps the jury took a more demanding rational approach to their deliberations and not as emotional as folks in Caylee’s own community would have. Dr. Bonn concluded, “ That’s pretty much why Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her daughter by a jury of 12 reasonable people in Orlando while an outraged world watched. However, finding her not guilty is not the same as finding her innocent. The prosecution failed to convince the jury beyond a reasonable doubt that Anthony was guilty of premeditated murder. As a result, Anthony, a probable murderer, is free, while little Caylee cries out for justice from her grave.”

2. There seemed to be more than enough circumstantial evidence to convict Casey Anthony. Unfortunately, there was not enough direct evidence. The prosecution was not even able to provide a cause of death (Hare, 2018).
The indictment against Casey Anthony alleged a violation of Florida law ,Title XLVI, Chapter 782, Section 4, Paragraph (1)(a)1 (CNN, 2008). That statute says it is first degree murder to “unlawfully kill” a human, “when perpetrated from a premeditated design to effect the death of the person killed”. This meant the prosecution would have to prove premeditation, and aside from some computer word search activity, they had nothing.
