Casey Anthony: Appeals heard, no decision handed down yet
On Jan. 8, 2013, criminal defense attorneys representing Casey Anthony appeared at the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach, Florida to appeal Casey Anthony's four, misdemeanor convictions of lying to law enforcement officers. At issue is whether Casey Anthony was aware she wasn't officially under arrest at the time she made statements regarding the whereabouts of her daughter Caylee. Casey Anthony did not attend the appeal.
It was also noted that officers didn't read Casey Anthony her Miranda rights at the time she made false statements to law enforcement. Lisabeth Fryer stated that because the statements were made during a continual, time period, Anthony was overcharged.
It could take between a week to several months before a decision is rendered.
