Well -- the murder trial Casey Anthony the verdict read today in Orlando court.
As to the charge of first degree murder.
Verdict as to count one we the jury find the defendant not guilty so say we all as -- the charge of aggravated child abuse verdict as to count to.
-- the jury find the defendant not guilty as to the charge of aggravated manslaughter of a child.
Verdict as to count three.
We the jury find the defendant not guilty.
Casey Anthony was convicted on four counts of making false statements to law enforcement officials each count carries a maximum sentence of one year Casey Anthony -- -- jail for nearly three years already sentencing on those counts will take place on Thursday morning.
Joining us now from one today's verdict is Fox News legal analysts least we'll -- at least.
I'm not an assumed you were shocked -- where -- shot doctor have you learned apps that was -- -- why why have so many legal analysts.
It's thought that for sure she would be convicted even if the wasn't up for the murder charge ran -- under a lesser charge but at least one of those hard.
What you -- they had a really great great case the prosecution did a -- had so much circumstantial evidence they didn't have you know one person.
Saying I saw her do it but they have a date on mountain of evidence that they brought they really told a good story.
And the defense was kind of you know poking trying to poke holes everywhere it looked very scattershot remember that opening statement Jose Baez came -- and said.
Well -- accidental killing.
And Casey was sexually molested there was no evidence of that at all during the trial but he was able to say that and I think that resonated with the jurors.
That and the fact as as you when you interview that alternate number Gephardt earlier today -- and -- earlier.
That he says well there was no cause of death and that was always the main problem I think for the prosecution.
Is that they couldn't prove.
How Caylee died cause of death you know why -- because the potty with -- composed by the time they found we're -- you know they couldn't for.
The alternate juror who was not -- and deliberate right but he did say at the beginning of the union I agree with what -- all the day down right -- it you know Arthur right dollars and don't know Fox News contributor.
Said look at the end -- I -- closing arguments I always say this is the one piece of evidence that points directly to you know defendant ex murdering -- -- this person this individual and.
There was none of them well they there wasn't there wasn't one piece of evidence there were hundreds of pieces of evidence and -- applied directly to her -- -- don't -- forget every piece of that we talk about evidence every single piece of physical evidence.
In that was introduced -- that trial Casey was the only person that had physically touched.
Every single piece of -- evidence from the duct -- to the car with that you know with the body in the back.
But I have to believe that you know was it was a lack that.
The cause of death -- lack up a lot of scientists.
There was no DNA there was no fingerprints on that duct tape even though that proved that it was from the Anthony house and then you have them mother and father the grandmother grandfather.
Changing their story the -- and played a role play significant obviously lilies of the jury at -- -- probably was just confused like popular.
I don't know who to believe here and she didn't testify Casey didn't so it's reasonable doubt.
All machine will be she was guilty on four counts of lying to a rise and I do you think the judge is gonna let her go free on Thursday said it's because he's already spent three years I think there's a really good chance I don't have most decompose before year's concern out there I mean.
But a lot of judges a look at the sentencing guidelines and they get six months or something like -- -- time served you some authors and I thank you so much we'll see that the later on -- -- -- --
