Jeff Ashton talks trouble with jury in Casey Anthony case due to pretrial publicity (videos)

Jeff Ashton revealed in an interview that he chose the title "Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony," because he felt that pretrial publicity caused the jury pool to become thinned. It's an interesting concept and sheds light on Florida's Sunshine Laws. Did pretrial publicity cause the prosecution to not get the jury they hoped to have?

Is this truly a definition of "imperfect justice" as Ashton describes in his book, or does the public have a right to access evidence photos, documents, and transcripts of a case before it gets to trial?

What do you think?

Did pretrial publicity cause the jury to render a not-guilty verdict? Did the Casey Anthony case have the "wrong" jury?
