Casey Anthony walked out of jail a free woman under heavy guard early Sunday, facing shouts of “baby killer” from a heckling crowd only days after a nation in rapt attention watched as she was acquitted of murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
A Philadelphia defense attorney says death penalty murder trials begin and end every day across the country without the media scrutiny the Casey Anthony Case has received. He says this may lead to a distorted view of the justice system.
State lawmakers are proposing making it a felony not to report a death or to wait more than a day before telling authorities a child has gone missing, making New Jersey one of at least 16 states to introduce a “Caylee’s Law.”
High-profile cases like the murder of little Caylee Anthony in Florida almost always prompt a spate of legislative proposals, and bills are already in the pipeline in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
