Time there are no jurors interested in speaking to any members of the media.
They do however.
Have your packets.
And they've asked for their privacy.
And they will contact.
You if they are interested in speaking to you.
That was the Orange County court's public information officer telling the press that -- twelve members of the jury in the Caylee Anthony murder trial.
Who acquitted Casey of first degree murder manslaughter and aggravated child abuse earlier today decided they would not speak after delivering their verdict so the question lose.
How did these twelve jurors come to the conclusion that Casey Anthony is innocent here to help -- answer the question a jury consultant.
Susan Constantine and criminal defense attorney former prosecutor.
Kelley -- and -- here guys welcome back cut to the a program appreciate it.
Don't DNA on the duct tape but let's -- run through this we still don't know what caused this little girl's death at this particular point.
The smell issue in the car was disputed in a timeframe.
Towards Casey Anthony if everyone wants the look at the timeline.
That was the shuttle issue was disputed in a lot of different ways it was only -- 45 minute she didn't come back sweaty.
On top of it.
The cause of death we don't know how did -- -- how did -- get into the woods you know how when why where.
By the prosecution.
So I asked both of you help me out here why is everyone angry at the jury.
It's a great question -- -- I'm not share.
I have really -- -- -- I apologize but this thing is they did their job and I think from everything that we've seen she got a fair trial I may not love the outcome.
But what was put before -- -- beyond a reasonable -- a high standard.
I thought they were going to get a conviction of manslaughter because the jurors were going to be outraged that a mom didn't report her daughter missing for over thirty days.
But they are isolated there in a bubble they don't see everything that we see and jurors use their life experience they use their own comments and say.
Wait what was put before them and I believe they took beyond a reasonable doubt they.
Seriously -- you know and and and -- -- Constantin.
I agree that 31 days kills me.
I don't get it not reporting it kills me the lie about the boyfriend universal it it -- they answered the -- it's on the answer.
But the standard is very clear the judge's instructions were very clear the the what ever evidence was presented.
In this case was contradicted or totally impeached by the defense.
And therefore I don't see how they could have come to another conclusion.
Help me out.
Well what -- thing right here with this theory is that Whitney doesn't they just did find some of the way this ball.
And there's still information they were inundated with forensic evidence what might -- I think there -- like eighty felt like it says.
Just average people they're just average people that are chosen to be on this very -- -- through.
UNICEF and how do you fly.
-- really -- down to like they don't.
Oh and yeah it's really what happened I think what happened when this theory they come with a verdict and healthy because -- They opened many obstacles in the way that says I can't crawl up that high and -- that he and with the credit really little -- says that they didn't.
Yeah I -- and bio -- -- -- I do apologize that but but Kelly this is the thing about our our system I I really wanna get to the answer here.
All of those things about Casey that disturb everybody.
And that raised real suspicion odd angle along with a defense attorneys -- cause a mob mentality out here in people or speculate they were speculating for good reason.
Because of her lifestyle the way she reacted to this in the lies that she told.
But that doesn't convict somebody of murder.
Can you -- can you give me one case where -- where the prosecution.
Made a rock solid case tying her to this murder.
Now you're absolutely right there wasn't DNA evidence there wasn't solid forensic evidence this was all circumstance -- and that's the problem.
And his second thing that I think is a problem for the Jerry and -- this was such an overzealous prosecution.
My first degree by going for the death penalty and not something lower as the high mark.
The entire time the jury is thinking in their mind -- not only do we have to go beyond a reasonable doubt.
But when we hill she might back -- And so that's in their mind they've been pre qualified as jurors can you convict someone and -- -- that it was a -- prong.
To pass to be honest -- Still I think that there is not.
Solid evidence there's not direct evidence linking her -- looking for an out.
And they're doing their job and -- prosecution raised just as many questions as a defense.
I agree with Suzanne.
That when there's unanswered question is how do you say beyond a reasonable doubt there's no other explanation that we'll let that I'm -- yeah that's why I think this jury is being attacked -- as somebody who.
