Casey Anthony jury foreman says doubt in dad George's testimony swayed verdict
(CBS) - The foreman of the jury in the Casey Anthony trial said that his work experience trained him in reading people, which made him suspicious of the testimony of Casey Anthony's father, George Anthony, a report says.Fox News that the trial was a time he will "never forget."
He explained to the network that many of the jurors did not believe the testimony of Casey's father George Anthony.
"He had a very selective memory for me, and that in itself was something I always kept in the back of my mind," the foreman said, adding that other jurors had similar reactions, reports Fox News. "There was a suspicion of him, that was a part of our conversation that we had."
He also noted that the absence of an official cause of death raised a lot of doubt among the jurors.
Last week Anthony was acquitted on first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter charges in the death of her daughter, Caylee.
Judge Belvin Perry sentenced Anthony to a total of four years in jail on four counts of providing false information to law enforcement, as well as a fine of $4,000, plus court costs. However, due to credit for time served and good behavior, Anthony is scheduled to be released this Sunday, July 17.
