She'll get fan mail from wackos,(she already has people who never met her sending money to her commissary account).

Looks like she's going to Lowell C.I.....not exactly a horrific place like Union C.I. or Florida State Prison the men would have to endure. There have been reports of female prisoners getting raped by male guards at Lowell but given Casey's penchant for promiscuity that won't be a problem for her. I think she's looking at the 99 year plan where they run sentences consecutive rather than concurrent.
I think the choices for 1st degree murder will boil down to death, life without parole, or life with parole. As I remember from living in FL, the judge has sole discretion, with the juries and prosecutors only role as issuing a recommendation. A few women have been executed in FL, but for the most part people are squeemish about issuing death sentences to women. But life "with parole" is feasable - I am not sure what that means in Florida but it could potentially mean that she is out in 15 years, a travesty for sure. But, on the other hand, based on the circumstances - no one can dismiss the possibility of a death sentence. The State of Florida sentences people to die quite frequently. That means having a cell in Raiford near "Old Sparky" going through seamingly endless appeals waiting for the date with the chair.

Edit: Note that Anthony has also satisfied a few of the Florida Law aggravating factors used to determine if a sentence of death is called for or not (only one is needed):
1.) Murder of a person less than 12 years of age.
2.) Murder during commision of aggravated child abuse
3.) Victim was vulnerable due to being under a position of custodial care by the Murderer
...some of these seem redundant, but not under Florida law.

Self corrections:
- It seems that Florida has moved to lethal injection since I moved away. Old Sparky has been retired.
- The infamous Raiford death row cells are male only, the other poster has it right I think. Nearby Lowell houses female prisoners.

It was reported that Casey wanted to adopt out the child but Cindy wouldn't let her (not that she needed her permission), but she probably talked her out of it. At some level, Cindy "agreed" to help raise Caylee, which she has done, but with her own job, etc and Caylee out every night, it started to become too much for her 24/7 (can't blame her for that). I has been confirmed that they had a horrendous fight the night before Casey took off the Caylee for the last time, but this hasn't come out in the trial. I'm not sure why. Seems the jury would then understand why Casey wanted to get rid of the daughter...no more babysitter, and she would have to stay home more (at least during the week) to take care of her child. I think this put her over the edge and it wasn't what she had "signed up for" with her mother. I think that's why Cindy feels so terribly guilty, because of that fight (one of many I imagine). I think Casey did it to spite her mother as well...in her own words "I am a spiteful bxxxx". I do agree that she was spoiled rotten her whole life.

That's interesting. I had heard the Anthoney's wanted to adopt Caylee but I hadn't heard Casey wanted to put her up for adoption.

I have an adult/child in my family that has similar problems as Casey's. The parents drive themselves crazy wondering what they did wrong with this one child yet they have two more grown kids that are totally responsible. I watched these kids grow up and saw no difference in the way they were raised.

I just have to believe some individuals are more prone to negative behaviour and some to positive. It can tear a family apart though, that is for sure.

Until 2003 then it was moved to Lowell CI and Lowell CI Annex just outside Ocala, FL.

I seem to recall that Lowell was a men's prison once?

Could have been but per FL DOC's website Lowell Correctional Institution -- Fl Dept. of Corrections it's been a female facility for a long time. They have renamed it throughout the years and are expanding it into 2012. The FL DOC site is really pretty cool...you can see the inmates photos, crime history, sentences, facility history, etc. Of the current female death row inmates at Lowell one appears to have a black eye in her prison photo. If you really want to see some hard timers browse Florida State Prison or Union CI and there are guys who have death sentences and release dates like 2030-2060.

I don't care about the death penalty. I just hope she is convicted. And in prison for life.

the photos of Caylee when she was found were being shown today...I guess they are very, very disturbing. Casey became ill in court and they are recessed until tomorrow morning. Too bad...she'll have to come back tomorrow to see the rest of those pictures of the skeleton, teeth, duct tape...all her handywork.
