Court Drops Two Casey Anthony Convictions

Keep your “she gets away with murder” quips to yourself. A Florida appellate court has tossed out two of the four convictions Casey Anthony faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her 2-year-old daughter’s disappearance. Anthony’s attorneys called double jeopardy on two of the charges, arguing that she had been unfairly convicted more than once for the same crime, and the judges overturned the convictions. During her 2011 trial, Anthony was acquitted of murder and other major charges in the death of her daughter, Caylee, but was sentenced to serve time followed by a year of probation for other misdemeanors. Her whereabouts have been kept secret since she was released.
