Welcome back to justice Sandra should mean bureau.
Florida taxpayers foot the bill for Casey Anthony's defense because she was broke.
The orange county -- -- confirmed that people are now sending Casey money about 400 dollars so far.
But now that she is free Casey could be looking at a million dollar payday.
They say crime doesn't pay but try telling that to some of the most infamous defendants of the last twenty years.
Remember Mary -- turn -- she was his schoolteacher locked up for sleeping with a thirteen year old student Willi -- well.
Once out of jail she married him and by some reports was -- up to 500000.
Dollars for the rights to their wedding video.
I never thought maybe I told me -- I don't think people who back.
I don't think he can do this I have trouble Lakshmi.
There's also Tonya Harding convicted of covering up her ex husband's attack on rival skater Nancy Kerrigan.
-- made a whopping 400000.
Dollars for a series of tabloid TV interviews.
I thought that his gratitude -- almost brought -- from someone -- and who could forget the Long Island Lolita.
Like the things that his friends I would like to put my hands over spilt.
-- make it go.
She sold the rights -- her life story for 60000.
Dollars and use the -- as bail money.
It makes no sense it doesn't fit.
If it doesn't fit you must -- Then -- the most infamous of all.
OJ Simpson and he pocketed 880000.
Dollars for a book and television interview.
Money he allegedly spent before the public outcry led to the mixing of the deal itself.
So is it free and clear Casey Anthony about two rate -- general.
Or will public outrage scare off.
Any rich media -- Joining me now to hash this all out as Dylan Howard and senior executive editor of Star Magazine.
And radar online -- thanks for being with us this evening.
What offers that she already have in her pocket.
While judge publicly at least Ares one often at this deal is -- mastermind.
By a freelance television producer -- -- the -- that the finest interview and -- David Frost focused right at that.
Interview with Richard Nixon he would he would do this -- -- you.
And then he would attempt to place it in the mainstream media and inevitably that's the big concern here because most mainstream media organize our nation's.
Publicly are reluctant to port forward and offered to Casey Anthony when you have two out of three Americans believing that she was guilty.
In the -- all of -- It would be constituted.
As something like blood money and therefore there reluctant to put their nine to such a lucrative deal.
And this freelance TV producer that that that you reference -- -- would he end up selling it to the networks.
How will that what do you -- That would be one -- in which the networks would be unable to alleviate themselves of that blood money.
Mantra eat -- alive is that I would to acquire the interviewed.
Via at that it posse that -- it inevitably does the money.
Leads back to Casey Anthony -- These freelance produce -- having negotiations.
-- infants are designed to stand that I spoke to him Billy it to die he told me.
That he has might contact with the defense -- And -- are attempting to secure -- -- -- certainly discuss these of the -- time does the network so well and truly involved -- in Florida and they're working their contacts.
And attempting to secure it but securing you know why that would not necessarily tarnish them in the odds that -- -- is.
So that Dylan she does not have an agent in her defense team is acting or or receiving these offers on her behalf.
But our at this point -- bias laws -- to -- Hollywood talent I can see -- Not soon opt out that talent I agency announced internally that I was kinda represented -- -- -- -- In the potential -- deals the television programs television interviews and potential film.
He was dropped from that -- I agency I think you'll see Casey Anthony being represented by any one.
That would be seen to be marketing -- don't have a half.
And Dylan how much do you think she can make I mean as you say two thirds of the American public thinks she's guilty of of of murder.
At the end of -- today they're not gonna buyer -- are they.
Well that's the great paradox of the whole checkbook journalism device is -- it because.
You and I have questions that we wanna lots Casey Anthony I want and -- what happened to tightly.
What she meant it how was she murdered I also want and on who the father was.
We want to I ask these questions and I want certainly as a journalist wanna -- of these questions -- Anthony site they reset appetite.
The public do want to can share and they -- at this time time.
Therein -- the delicate balancing act for any -- -- organize action.
Balancing that debt obligation to debut is and -- -- audience against the obligation.
Not to tie someone.
Constituting essentially what would be -- money.
And you think Dylan she makes the decision.
As -- who wouldn't go with the dot I think she's gonna have too many choices and she's got a one million dollar offer from a freelance TV producer.
It could quite well believe the only offer that she has.
Now don't forgetting of course it was the Anthony family who licensed.
Hunt video collection all video -- tightly enticing and I saw that too -- BC news it was revealed that some 200.
Thousand dollars inevitably that deals being done so there's not much more like -- license and that's how.
Media organize our nations in these -- I HR I able to secure interviews site license videos and in exchange for that I get an interview.
I'm curious as to whether -- -- there are negotiating his Katie Couric in their negotiating.
And I mean.
Are you interested don't.
I'm interested in asking the questions -- -- -- her.
Personally no I wouldn't and I wouldn't do that for the reason that I about -- added that two thirds of the American public believe.
That she's guilty of the -- -- and morally.
Also rise of time and should go to do I wanna -- questions have heard absolutely as you would -- -- Well there's no question Dylan I want to ask questions but given -- history of pathological lying I don't think I didn't wanna -- answer.
But finally last question -- and what about the fact that there are people sending her money while she's in jail.
We make of that.
Well it's only a marginal amount let's -- that.
She she might -- just a small amount of money but she's not a sympathetic figure out.
And that's why -- she's not getting more than 400 dollars and that's why these -- year old and i.'s actions.
Don't necessarily want to be rocking -- -- to well let's hope that you're right about it Dylan thanks so much for being with us again.
