Casey Anthony has been found not guilty of nearly all charges relating to the death of her daughter, Caylee.
Anthony, 25, had been charged with seven counts, including first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child and four counts of providing false information to a law-enforcement officer in Caylee’s 2008 disappearance and death.
A jury only found her guilty of giving false information, in a long trial that often rose to a public spectacle only comparable to the O.J. Simpson trial.
Anthony shed tears as the verdicts were read and verified at around 2:15 p.m. She walked into the courtroom wearing a pink shirt, with her hair pulled back. She stood with her lawyers, often biting her lip as the proceedings unfolded.
The jury took 10 hours and 40 minutes to find its verdict after a 33-day trial.
Anthony had faced the death penalty if convicted of murder. The four counts of providing false information are only misdemeanor offenses and carry minimal jail time.
She will be sentenced Thursday. It is possible that she may only receive probation.
