Caylee Anthony–Drowning Defense
Total case of child neglect proving that all child-bearing women with vaginas don’t need to push babies out of them.
(CNN) — Two-year-old Caylee Anthony was not murdered by her mother as prosecutors maintain, but drowned in the family’s pool in June 2008, Casey Anthony’s defense attorney told jurors during opening statements Tuesday.
Casey Anthony and her father, George Anthony, panicked upon finding the child, Jose Baez said. Anthony found her father cradling Caylee’s body the morning of June 16, 2008, he said, and George Anthony yelled at his daughter, “Look what you’ve done. Your mother will never forgive you.” He told her she would go to jail for child neglect, Baez said.
“This is a tragedy that snowballed out of control,” Baez said. “This is not a murder case. This is not a manslaughter case … this is a tragic accident that happened to some very disturbed people.”
Anthony is accused of killing Caylee in 2008 and lying about it to investigators. The Orlando trial, which comes after nearly three years of legal twists, turns and delays, has garnered interest nationwide…[did this happen as well?]
Anthony was taught from an early age to behave as if nothing was wrong, he said, describing an incident where she went to school and behaved normally at age 13 after performing oral sex on her father. George Anthony sat stone-faced in the gallery as Baez made the allegations.
Anthony put her head on the shoulder of another defense attorney and sobbed as Baez spoke.
