Popcorn Johnny: stiletto_the_wise: And you know this because you were there or because the media told you she did it?

Anybody with half a brain that spent 5 minutes learning the facts of the case knows she murdered her kid.  Let me guess, you think OJ was framed, right?


Got it. So when they are found guilty, they did it, and when they're found not guilty, but there's a media circus, they did it, and when they are found not guilty without a media circus, well the jury were morons so they did it.

Earl of Chives: middlewaytao: If she was found innocent by the court why does she owe money to the police and courts?

She only got off on the murder charge, IIRC she was convicted on the theft by check, lying to the cops, etc....and she wasn't found Innocent, she was found Not Guilty.


Legally being found Innocent of murder and Not Guilty is the same thing. Regardless of how you or anyone else feels about the verdict, being found not guilty should mean that she should only pay the fines and fees regarding what she was found guilty of. There is nothing right about charging her for trying to send her to jail and failing. She would already be on the hook for the lawyers and private investigators it took to protect her interest, she should not be held accountable for what they spent. This is very wrong for the courts to pass a financial sentence on someone the jury let go. I was once accused of helping a bank robber. What right would they have to charge me for the privilege of being interrogated? I didn't even know about the robbery until questioned.

IlGreven: jtown: tylerdurden217: How can she possibly owe 68K in taxes, interest and penalties?

You answered your own question. Only the government is allowed to charge so much in penalties and interest that they dwarf the principal. If a private citizen tried to do that, it would be called usurious.

Tell that to Western Sky Financial.

I was incredulous the first time I read the fine print and did the math. I mean, people desperate enough to agree to those terms can't possibly meet them for 84 months, are they making their money back primarily through lawsuits?

For all the things she was found guilty of by the courts (obstruction of justice, etc), some of which explicitly have a large fine as a standard/minimum sentence.

She was only found innocent of murder, she still lied to the cops on several occasions and lost a related civil suit, both of which involve defendant paying court costs if you lose sometimes.

Allow me to introduce you to this comment upthread from yours:

Sebastian: The reason she owes money to the Orange County Sheriffs Office is for the cost of the investigation relating to the alleged kidnapping of Kaylee. The result of the trial was that Casey knew Kaylee was dead, but allowed the sheriffs office to conduct the investigation, thus fraud.

Since Casey lied, she is liable for the costs related to the initial kidnapping investigation, I don't think she is being held liable for costs related to the murder investigation.

wait
she knew the kid was dead? but pretended she was kidnapped?
what did she know and when? and how could that be the case and not be involved in the murder??
 
2013-01-27 02:59:06 PM
Odd question. If charged with a crime and you can't afford an attorney could the services that the state provided attorney provides be considered as a form of income and therefore taxed? I mean from what I know providing something of value (of x dollars) to someone is counted for tax purposes.

That way they can arrest you for tax evasion after you get off of the first charge.

I don't know if it was proven she knew the kid was dead, but initially she told the cops her nanny had taken her so the police were investigating it as a kidnapping.

From what I understand, the prosecution gave the jury an overly complicated either/or scenario..

The jury was given two choices, something like:

1) We have NO physical evidence of any of the particulars but Casey Anthony chloroformed the kid and taped her mouth and killed her on X date in X location using X method and transported the body at X time

- OR-

2) Not guilty

That is why nothing about the case makes sense. They can't prove she killed the kid, but she somehow lied about knowing the kid was dead. The media was very bias and everything Orange County did was suspicious at best. I don't pretend to know the whole case because I wasn't on the jury as well as anyone who acts all outraged. The jurors were clear about their verdict and they heard the case thoroughly. Here is a crazy thought, someone close to her may have killed the kid and pinned it on her. She may have thought the girl was kidnapped and did not lie. She may have found out while the police was already involved, who the real killer is and is too scared to talk. Too many possibilities may have happened. I do hope Orange County eats the cost for not actually putting the killer behind bars. Whether it is Casey or not, the real killer. Either way Casey is messed up and confused.

ya, after reading the wiki article
the testimony given was that the kid was found drowned, her father and her then covered up the death with a series of lies.
she was found guilty of the lies, but not the death
the 200k she owes the government stems from those lies ...
wasted time and money looking for a kidnapped kid?? sigh

Casey claimed the following at trial:

Kaylee drowned accidentally in the family pool. She panicked and her dad helped her hide the body. Casey was sexually abused as a child by her father and that is why she reacted to her daughters 'accident' the way she did (making up the kidnapping stuff). Dad, of course denied it all.

The prosecution had no evidence that showed how Kaylee died, they only had her bones. Bones don't tell you that the kid died from drowning or from being locked in a trunk and suffocating because your mom put duct tape over your mouth and nose.

Dude. She claimed that the kid accidentally drowned, and her father forced her to dump the body and tell the police that she was kidnapped. That was her defense, so their is no since in trying to say somebody else could have killed the kid or that she thought the kid was really kidnapped. The reason why she was charged for the cost of the investigation was because of the lie, that she admitted to telling the cops, that led the cops on a wild goose chase looking for the imaginary nanny. They are charging her for the cost of that investigation.

It's like someone cut off the bottom half of her face (ear-to-ear, just below the eyes), put it in a nutrient (anti-nutrient?) / HGH bath and grew it 20%, and then grafted it back on. She's just weird looking.

Have no interest in watching her do anything; if I never heard about / saw her again it'd be too soon.

Except without knowing how much the original debt was, nor how much time has passed, we have no basis for determining which is which.

Here we go.
"That year attorney Jose Baez struck a deal with ABC to sell Anthony family home videos and photos for $200,000. It's unclear who ABC paid, but the money was reportedly used to pay defense costs.
If ABC paid Casey Anthony directly, she could owe taxes on that payment."


so she got paid a ton of cash, didnt pay any taxes and now she owes the taxes, interest and penalties.

For those wondering why she had to pay for a police investigation


She had those expenses levied against her for filing a false police report and the cost of the manhunt/search was levied against her. Remember, she was found guilty of making that false police report - which allowed the costs to be assigned to her.

Also, she owes her own lawyers a pile of money. I find it funny that the sleazy lawyers that got her acquitted won't ever get paid for their work after her bankruptcy. After the bankruptcy is complete - THEN she will do porn.
