Casey Anthony Sentenced To 4-Years In Jail


(July 7) Suspected killer Casey Anthony was sentenced to serve 4-years in jail for lying to authorities. On Tuesday, Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year old daughter to much of the nation’s surprise.

However, with time already served there’s speculation she could see freedom as early as this year, according to various reports.

The New York Times reports: “Casey Anthony, who earlier this week was found not guilty of killing her daughter, was sentenced on Thursday to four years in jail, not including the nearly three years she has already served. The precise amount of time she will spend in jail has not yet been determined. but it is likely to be significantly less than one year.

Ms. Anthony, 25, was also fined $1,000 for each of the four counts of lying she was convicted of during an interview with the police who were investigating the disappearance and death killing of Caylee Marie, Ms. Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter. She showed no visible emotion as her sentence was being read.”

Has justice been served?
