Casey Anthony: Appeals Court Tosses Out Two Convictions
Two charges down, two more to go -- that's the tally for Casey Anthony the
horrible human being Florida mother woman who wiggled her way out of murder charges related to the death of her 2-year-old daughter.
Today an appeals court tossed out two of Anthony's remaining convictions, charges for lying to police during the investigation. According to CNN, the court bought Anthony's argument that the convictions constituted double jeopardy. Two similar convictions still stand.
Even though she remains a hot-button issue for soccer moms and CourtTV heads the world over, Casey Anthony has kept a low profile since her 2011 not-guilty verdict. Since then, she's been reportedly spotted all over the country, from rural Ohio to right in our backyard.
After the not-guilty verdict, Anthony was slapped with the four additional convictions for her lies to investigators. At the time, she vowed to fight till her record was squeaky clean again. How did she react to today's ruling? According to CNN, Anthony responded to her lawyer (cue the strings): "We keep fighting."
