Three years on and she can’t show her face in public:
Anthony now lives in an undisclosed location in Florida and doesn’t go out of the home she is living in because of the public hate and continued threats to her life, Mason said.
“She has to live constantly on guard. She can’t go out in public,” Mason said.
By her own choice, she works inside the home, Mason said, and is living as “a housekeeper, clerk, secretary and stuff like that.”
“I think Casey has a lot of world left to have to deal with. She hasn’t been freed from her incarceration yet ’cause she can’t go out. She can’t go to a beauty parlor, she can’t go shopping to a department store, she can’t go to a restaurant, she can’t even go to McDonald’s. She can’t do anything,” he said.
Maybe the CNN story is a beginning for the media to take responsibility for their role in whipping up a public frenzy for a hanging. I’m not holding my breath, though. They still note with barely disguised astonishment that Anthony’s attorney Cheney Mason continues to believe that “…the jury got it right and the rest of the country got it wrong.” As if that’s impossible.
Bottom line is, she might as well have been in prison for past three years. She might as well have been convicted.
I can’t improve upon my previous suggestions regarding the ‘wrongfully acquitted’ in a high profile case. Give them a pile of money and they leave the country to live in obscurity somewhere else. Their lives in this country are ruined, and the acquittal – obtained at enormous cost – can’t fix that.
Their lawyers should get a pile of money, too:
After that meeting…Mason decided to join the team pro bono. He said the unpaid time he spent on the case “was well over a million dollars” and cost him tens of thousands of dollars out-of-pocket.
but then who gives a damn about them?
