By Friday July 8th.

There is a lot to go through. Lots of counts. I think the jury is taking this very seriously as they should.

HLN better get some alternate news coverage going

Yeah but we all know that is against her civil liberties right ? Give me a break . I believe if you are convicted of killing your child you should be sterilized . End of discussion , no if ands or butts about it .

I think the verdict will come in some time today - I also think the reason why it is taking so long is that the discussion is re: what category for guilty .....

Do I think she is dangerous? Not necessarily dangerous like Manson was scarily dangerous but I do think dangerous to those who stand in her way if there is something she wants to do and cannot, like have fun...or simply, interfers with having her way.

Do I think she is capable of participating in her defense, absolutely - do I think she is "crazy", no, I do not ... I do think, however, that there is a part of her that is pretty surprised that she may have to be held accountable for her actions, her lies and her fabrications.

I hope it's ASAP. The "holdout: worries me.
All cases should be thoughtfully deliberated, but overthinking can muddle what what is painfully obvious - not just in this case, or in any case, but in many life situations.

"Crazy" according to the courts refers to the ability to know "right from wrong" - not the ability to keep one's self from doing bad things. One thing they generally look for is weather the defendant attempted to cover up what they did. In the case of Casey Anthony, however Caylee died, she went missing a month before her mother was forced to report it.Her mother did things to cover up the fact that she was missing. She told lies to cover up her misdeeds so she knew on some level that what she did was wrong in the eyes of the law. And that is what matters to the court.

Check out the M'Naughton Rule.

I have HLN on while I'm working. Background noise so I may not catch everything, but quick update:

The jury is dressed up again today. One juror is wearing a shirt with a tie. And they asked to work through a break. Unfortunately, I didn't catch if it was their lunch break.

(Getting kind of hard to listen to Jane Mitchell. I think there could be a rumor that there's a meter reader at the Anthony's house and she'd scream, "Breaking news!!")

I am guessing that all these folks on HLN are getting sick of talking about this all day. But I am sure this case is really helping their careers, so I am sure they aren't complaining. I have never seen Vinnie Politan before but I really like him.

Hi Sheena12, I completely agree with you -- as a mom, I cannot even imagine overlooking saying anything about the whereabouts of my child - I cannot even imagine making up a fictitious name of a sitter AND to then say missing for 30 days -- and/or to say an accident. Let's for the sake of argument say there was an accidental drowning which actually I could not even accept [so I guess that theory is out already] - given that one never lets a little child in the water without an adult; and one would certainly not grab a child who was going under the water with adults in and/or by the pool - and if it was an accident, to report it immediately, call EMT's -- nope, that argument which, by the way, I hope the jury has already discussed and ruled out...

I must admit that I would have done anything possible not to be on that jury -- I know and understand, certainly in theory, that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, that there must be a proponderance of evidence to determine guilt - and certainly everyone has the right to a trial, their day in Court, etc.

I believe I could honestly and sincerely sit on a jury for any other type of case and be fair, thorough and responsible in my deliberations, I know that I could not sit through a trial where the victim is a child and I think being honest and sincere about that is better than portraying something else during jury selection and then.....

Some people are very concrete, and have difficulty with "reasonable". If it is not all laid out, they won't agree.

Lower income, lower level of education, no children. Which juror does that sound like?

I also question the IT guy...the jurors are supposed to vote on evidence presented at trial, not any thing else.

I can't imagine why this is taking so long, I would have been done in about 15 minutes.

The longer the better for Casey.

The amazing thing is that the amount of lies she tells about this time period of 31 days is so much bigger than just a lie about her babysitter-

check out her arrest affidavit to see the amount of complexity in the stories she tells the detectives, as well as all the other people in her life. Its quite disturbing.
