Do I Have This Right?

I have not followed this Casey Anthony trial at all but am a little perplexed. The verdict:


Anthony faced seven charges

First-degree murder NOT GUILTY

Aggravated child abuse NOT GUILTY

Aggravated manslaughter of a child NOT GUILTY

Four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer:

-That she worked at Universal Orlando in 2008 GUILTY
-That she left Caylee with a babysitter named Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez GUILTY
-That she told Jeffrey Hopkins and Juliette Lewis that Caylee was missing GUILTY
-That she received a phone call from Caylee on July 15 2008 GUILTY

Mr Huekler added that he and the jury only saw evidence that Anthony was a good mother.

'The first number of witnesses were Casey's friend and every time that they said they saw Casey with Caylee, it was a loving relationship and no one provided evidence to the contrary,' Mr Huekler said.

So she lied about her job. She lied about a baby sitter. She lied about declaring her child missing and she lied about a non-existent phone call from her daughter. All those lies went to law enforcement.

Now, she also lied to her parents for one month about her daughter's whereabouts. But you can't pin that against her.....I don't know why not... but there it apparently is.

And she's a "good mother."

She participated in a Hot Body contest at a bar 4 days after her daughter supposedly drowned. and she's a "good mother".

So they found she is a terrible liar, a good mother and had nothing to do with her daughter's death. Nothing at all. Not a single solitary shred of complicity.

She lied for an alibi but had nothing to do with a crime. Got it.
