YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO LIE IN A COURT OF LAW.
I agree they were lied to.

Defense attorneys often lie when defending clients and the ones that have more "standards" just shush their client and tell the client, "I don't want to KNOW if you did it ... I don't want to know anything about that ..."

Yes he was, he denied knowing anything about Caylee drowning or the disposal of her body........and I believe him.

I disagree with your opinion, and obviously so did the jury.
77% of Orlando disagrees with the jury's findings. (Unfortunately, it was the jury's findings that mattered ...)

It wouldn't matter whether Caylee drowned or not as far as an abuse of a corpse charge. The way the body was disposed of qualifies as abuse of a corpse in most states, no matter how she died.

Here in Ohio, I think the max for abusing a corpse in only one year anyway, couldn't find anything about Florida when I looked.

Since the jury found her not guilty of murder, I think they would also have found her not guilty of abuse of a corpse too.

Excellent question. I believe (but not certain) that they could ask the judge to add the charge and it would be up to his discretion whether to allow it. They could not try her on that charge as a separate trial though as it would violate the double jeopardy clause.

I can almost guarantee you that she would have been found guilty of that charge had they thrown it at her. It's almost indisputable.

I doubt that, Baez would have pinned the corpse disposal on George too. And Casey still walks.

I still think any reasonable person has to conclude that if a child is dead, and the Mother was aware of the death, that she has a duty to report, even an accident.

Reminds me or a horrific case of child rape and murder in Vegas, one person just watched the whole crime, did not report it or get help, or try to stop it, did not even leave. He was not charged with anything...no laws on this issue, because no one could believe anyone would be that sick and wrong. There is now a law in Nevada, making it a crime to not report witnessing a violent act on a child.

Crazy! Like there needs to be a law for common sense and decency?!

Doubtful. The jury would almost certainly have given her the conviction as she would have gone along with if not outright assisted in dumping the body.

Yup. At the very least, she lied to cover it up and did nothing to correct the situation. She's, at least, guilty of aiding and abetting.
