ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – The names of 12 member jury who acquitted Casey Anthony in the murder of her two year old daughter Caylee have been made public.
After the trial ended in July, Judge Belvin Perry said he wanted some time to pass before the names were made public because some of the jurors had received death threats. He ordered a three month ‘cooling off’ period. The three months came to an end on Tuesday and the jurors names were made public.
The jurors were selected from Pinellas County, along Florida’s Gulf Coast, because of concerns about pretrial publicity in Orlando, where the two-month trial was held. The jurors were sequestered until the verdict was announced.
Anthony is now serving probation on an unrelated check fraud charge at an undisclosed location in Florida.
