Casey Anthony may have a Loophole

Yes, there is a loophole according to wftv


A loophole could allow Caylee Anthony’s mother to beat the system.

She’s still only facing charges of child neglect and giving false statements.

If her attorney asks for a speedy trial, they could be the only charges she ever faces.

Florida law prohibits a person from being tried on more serious charges at a later date if the person stands trial for something that’s related.

“If you lose a kid and that results in a child’s death, that’s one and the same case, because those are manslaughter charges,” said board-certified trial attorney Richard Hornsby.

If Casey was found guilty of child neglect, she would only serve up to five years in prison versus a maximum of life for murder.
