Casey Anthony Trial Judge: There Was Enough To Convict

ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — It’s been nearly two years since Casey Anthony was acquitted of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. Now, the judge who presided over the trial says he believes there was enough evidence to convict the Florida mother.

Judge Belvin Perry told NBC’s “Today” show on Monday that he believes there was sufficient evidence for a first-degree murder conviction, even though much of it was circumstantial.

Casey Anthony’s trial attracted worldwide attention. She was convicted of making false statements to police and got credit for time served.

The judge says he saw two sides to Anthony. The one she showed to jurors was a wrongfully accused mother grieving for her child. The other was a woman wasn’t afraid to shout and swear at her attorneys.
