The loss for the state is bad news for the State Attorney at election time. If Judge Perry had shown one tiny bit of leniency toward Anthony, it would be bad for him at election time as well.
So if Judge Perry wasn't an elected official he would have let her off on the spot, time served, with perhaps a bouquet of roses?

Maybe Judge Perry thought that she deserved the maximum she can get BECAUSE of her lies wasting the polices' time. Maybe he had no motive more ulterior than that.

It is a shame some did not agree at first and were worn down for this verdict. They gave in.
Oh? Would you have? And so quickly? I wouldn't have. We'd still be there if I was on the jury as regards the lesser charge and not because the Prosecution proved it's case, but because of my "belief" and my "compromise judgment" because I think she was responsible in some way. BTW I would have a Judge and other law enforcement at the court to call on if I felt "bullied".

Hopefully the rest would have talked me down because if a killing isn't proven then you can't find for murder OR manslaughter and I would be wrong, basing my decision on a gut feeling and not on the law and the evidence.

This was an outstanding jury.

Maybe. Certainly NOT with any bouquet of roses!

Do you think that Judges who have to get elected are somehow above concern about elections?

Exactly. The prosecution was banking on an emotional jury and they didn't get it.

Casey Anthony jail visit: Casey Anthony declines mother's jail visit - OrlandoSentinel.com

And apparently Casey is not interested in talking to her Mother, who obviously perjured herself for her daughter...gotta love that kind of gratitude.

No they weren't. They put on every single piece of evidence they could and belived the jury would see what they saw. It was a dry bones case. They did the best they could, but it just wasn't enough.

No they are politicians too. There really wasn't much he could do to CA anyway since she had already spent so much time in jail.

That's my point. The evidence wasn't there so they were left hoping that an emotional jury would just convict anyway.

True. But he did the MAX! One year for each count, consecutive, and a $1000 fine for each count. Totally maxed out. I'm sure he understands that the citizens got that message.
