ORLANDO (CBS4) – Her trial drew national attention, her acquittal drew a shocked response from some; now one of the prosecutors in the Casey Anthony murder trial is writing a book about the case.

Jeff Ashton said he is finishing a book entitled “Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.” It is scheduled for release in November.

Ashton was the co-prosecutor in the trial of Anthony, the young mother accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

Ashton gave an impassioned closing argument, saying that Anthony killed Caylee because the little girl interfered with her social and love life. He was criticized by the judge for laughing during defense attorney Jose Baez’s closing argument and apologized.

Anthony was acquitted of killing her daughter and Ashton retired days later.

      No doubt, him and that blond bimbo too.

    He should be writing it from his prison-cell where he belongs for ripping off the tax-payers for a no-result prosecution of Casey Anthony on murder and a bunch of other charges.

    Book title, “The Slam Dunk That Wasn’t”

    1. JanCorey says:

      You got that right Matador and all at tax-payers expense. Aren’t you so proud of all them prosecutors in that case.

      1. JanCorey says:

        Title of the book should be Fantasy forensics.

  4. Me says:

    Amazing how so many people are making millions off a beautiful little girl’s death. Only in America.

    1. JanCorey says:

      That may have been the prosecution’s intent all along and that’s why they put on such a stupid case against Casey Anthony. They, the prosecution team, are the blood-money thieves doing a worse crime than Casey was even convicted of.
