Wow, I was sure wrong about that (or, it fell within the 0.0001% portion) with respect to the murder charge.

I think they were absolutely correct to say she was guilty of lying. I am stunned by the verdict on murder, though. I sure hope she didn't get away with murder.

At last count, 87% of the ones who put down an opinion think she did get away with murder...


This will be up there with the OJ verdict with people thinking someone got away with it...


I do not know all the charges, but I think one was something like harming a child.... can not see how that was innocent...

I am stunned. I bet she gets time served and walks out the door Thursday morning. I wonder if her parents are going to let her back in their house.

This little girls' disappearance was big news around Orlando before her remains were located, and the entire family was perceived to be suspect. But one thing we know for sure.......we'll never really know what happened.

Well....looks like the local wisdom was fairly spot-on.

I think she's guilty. I also agree with the jury. Being guilty and being PROVEN guilty are two very different things. Same with the OJ trial. Everyone was sure he was guilty but it wasn't proven. The verdit was appropriate IMO.

I agree with EastTexas, she will walk with time served. It is a real miscarriage of justice. If she didn't kill Calee, who did? However, case closed.

But that's not what the jury is supposed to consider. They are only supposed to consider whether there is reasonable doubt based on the evidence given to them. The lack of concrete leads on any other potential suspects does not preclude reasonable doubt.

I could be 90% sure someone did it, but in a murder trial, especially when the death penalty is in play, I'm probably not going to convict if the other 10% is based on rational, reasonable doubt. Having said that, I have no opinion since I honestly didn't follow it.

Unbelievable. I thought manslaughter at the minimum.

No way! I'll bet they will have nothing more to do with her, ever. That family is torn to bits. George and Cindy could even divorce after all those accusations.

With time served, she can call a cab and leave the courthouse Thursday morning.

Very surprised.

When the verdict was decided so soon the first thought, a quick guilty verdict.

Maybe in today's world juries need DNA, surveillance video, and or definite motive to convict to murder one level. I wonder if this happened 50 years ago if the result would have been the same.

I bet the judge's instructions to this poor jury amounted to a three-inch stack of paper.

The jury does the best they can with the tools that the prosecution and the judge can put together. I think they'd rather get it as right as they can the first time instead of having to watch the trial be done all over again.

I'm surprised it got to a trial in the first place.

I had not voted in this poll.

Whatever the charge, always choose to be tried by 12 rather than to be carried by six.
It will be interesting to read the trial transcripts during the long winter months.

Stunned. Maybe the baby isn't really dead. Or Caylee never existed, she was just another of Casey's lies to make her parents think they were grandparents so they wouldn't make Casey go to college or get a job.

Reminds me of that scene from "Dallas", I think it was. One of the main characters was killed in a season cliff hanger and then in the first episode of the next season he was shown coming out of the shower and it was all just a dream.

Too bad real life isn't like that.

This puts George and Cindy in a very strange position. They lost their grandbaby, they know what a HORRIBLE PERSON their daughter is and now she will be free to come back home and live her "beautiful life" in their home.

She's publicly accused her father of sexually molesting her in childhood. Her mother lied on the stand for her. So did her father. In a way they all deserve each other.

The commentators say that George and Cindy were there for the verdict and then quietly slipped out of the courthouse. I think they went home to change all the locks on the house.
