(CBS) - State prosecutors do not plan to pursue perjury charges against Cindy Anthony for her controversial testimony about computer searches in her daughter, Casey Anthony's murder trial, says a report.
During trial, Cindy Anthony told jurors she was the one who used her family computer to search the Internet for "chloroform" in March 2008, not Casey Anthony.
Earlier in the trial, prosecutors had suggested that the searches were conducted by Casey and were evidence that she premeditated to kill her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
Cindy Anthony's testimony was challenged during the prosecutions rebuttal by a computer expert and by coworkers who said Cindy Anthony had not gone home early on the days that the searches were made, as she had testified.
The office of Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said on Tuesday the State Attorney's Office would determine whether to bring perjury charges. Hours later the office said it has no plans to do so, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
"Our office is not pursuing perjury charges," said Danielle Tavernier, a spokeswoman for the Orange-Osceola State Attorney's Office, in an email, the Sentinel reports.
Cindy Anthony's attorney, Mark Lippman, has rejected any suggestion that his client lied to protect her daughter.
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.
