Court releases names of Casey Anthony Jurors
A Pinellas County court (in Florida) has released the names of the 12 jurors (plus 3 alternates) who acquitted child killer Casey Anthony of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, after a two-month trial in Orlando, Florida, in July.
In light of the public outrage, Judge Belvin Perry asked for a three month “cooling off” period before the names were made public. Many of the jurors expressed concern for their safety, and one woman quit her job out of fear. The jurors were sequestered until the controversial verdict was announced.
Anthony is now serving a one year probation at an undisclosed location in Florida for a check fraud charge.
