I think she deserves nothing. Being a young and irresponsible mother does not excuse murder so I do hope she gets her tubes tied right away. She should not have any more children. She will have hardship when released and I think that is only fair as her poor little girl got much worse.

THINK about Ashton's statement. It is not as logical and reasonable as you think.
Please find us one case anywhere of a accidental child drowning that was made to look like a murder. It is obvious to anyone outside of the courtroom that KC killed her kid to get back at her mother. Unfortunately, the circumstantial evidence presented to the jury was not sufficient to gain a conviction. It has nothing to do with Ashton's ability as a prosecutor or the ability of Baez as a defense attorney. Many circumstantial cases with less evidence than this result in convictions.

This jury could not connect the dots ...

Apparently, according to Ashton, the Casey Anthony trial is such a case.

Yeah, give her a second chance, who cares what she did. Also, who cares about the impression this "not guilty" verdict will send to other young mothers who would rather be out at a party instead of taking responsibility for their child. { hey, if she can kill her child and get away with it, maybe I can too! }

I dont care if they let her out tomorrow, but I think she should be made to walk down those courthouse steps like anyone else. I dont support vigilante justice, but I cant say as I would lose sleep over it in this case.

Try again, 3 for a quarter. Do you honestly think Ashton would have prosecuted this case seeking the death penalty, if he knew it was an accident ?

Yes...lying to the police means a slap on the wrist...even with 4 counts...

Not reporting your child missing for a month is not a crime either...so why do they charge parents for going out and leaving their kids alone for 2 hours...not doing something for 31 days is fine even not reporting an accidential death is okay...put some duct tape on the face and a blanket and throw it out in a swamp...that seems to be okay by jurors and now at least one is collecting money for it.

As Marcia Clark just stated on tv...the law should change that jurors are not allowed to make a penny of a case or at least not benefit for 90 days or longer....she is right when she stated "the more shocking the outcome of a trial, the more the media is interested in them"...that is very scary! Soon we have more killers walk free just for jurors to make some money.

This is just beyond absurd!

This is what I don't get. Isn't not reporting a two year old child missing, at least, negligence?

Do you have any idea how many murder cases have been tried in this country during the time of the Casey Anthony trial? No, you don't. You don't know anything about all of those cases. Why in the world do you think jurors on an low-profile murder case would be paid one cent for their stories about those murder cases???
