Casey Anthony Released From Jail SundayBeyond UCF, Crime, News — By Staff on July 17, 2011 at 12:10 am Tweet
Casey Anthony has been released from the Orange County jail, just a few minutes after midnight. An SUV drove her away from the jail. KnightNews.com is working to see where she’ll go next.
Casey Anthony, the woman known to some as the “most hated woman in America,” will be released from the Orange County jail sometime Sunday.
National media personalities — including Casey Stegall from Fox News, Vinnie Politan of HLN, Jane Velez-Mitchell of HLN and others — have descended upon the jail along with local news media to document Casey Anthony’s release. HLN and local Orlando TV stations have promised live coverage of Anthony’s released, which could happen as early as midnight Sunday.
Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her daughter, Caylee, but many, including HLN anchor Nancy Grace, have excoriated the jurors for not finding Anthony guilty. Jurors have indicated there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Anthony, but many legal experts, including Grace, disagree.
Anthony, who has been dubbed “tot mom” by Grace, caused a media firestorm after she never reported her daughter missing or dead and then partied for a month in bars near UCF, including at the former Fusian Ultra Lounge nightclub — where she participated in a hot body contest. She reportedly did not win.
KnightNews.com will monitor the news of Anthony’s release and let you know when that happens. Jail officials will not release the exact time, citing security concerns. Anthony has reportedly received death threats since her not guilty verdict was handed down. Anthony’s defense attorney Jose Baez is not releasing information about where he’ll take Anthony once she’s released.
