ORLANDO, Fla. — One of Casey Anthony's defense lawyers says he's worried about her safety once she's released from jail after being acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.

Cheney Mason told the NBC's "Today" show Monday he doesn't know where Anthony will go when she's freed Sunday from a Florida jail. He said she would need time and counseling to re-enter society after being jailed for nearly three years before and during her high-profile trial. She was convicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement.

Mason said Anthony's relations with her parents were "pretty well burned" after the trial, where her defense team contended she was sexually abused by her father. Her father, George Anthony, denied the claims.

Jail records show Casey Anthony refused a visit Friday from her mother, Cindy Anthony.

If you are truly angry at this person, your slacktivism could better serve your cause if you just ignore all news hype on this case, do not buy her book when it is written, do not watch the reality tv show when it comes on, do not go see the movie when it is produced.

Wow, hows that for a run on sentence..

casey anthony allowed her lawyers to toss out anything they want in open court in order to cast doubt on her role in caylee anthony's murder. there's not one shred of evidence that george anthony molested anyone. it's pretty much slander. casey anthony made it up, like she makes up most things and told her lawyer to use that as a defense. so, yeah, mr. is "pretty well burned".....

who cares where she goes...casey anthony is responsible for her daughter's death. it was either by neglect or it was intentional. it's not a matter of anger, but a matter of justice. she was found not guilty because the prosecutors didn't prove it, but she's not innocent.

Said it once, will say it again. She's going to find her own hell once she's released. Don't know many who think she's innocent. Our system didn't hit it right in her case. Note how the attorneys make NO mention of the darling little toddler who lost her life. They put on this facade as if she's really not guilty and come to her defense. Hate hate hate it.

No one on this Earth is "innocent", SeaMonkey. Guilty? Maybe, maybe not. But innocent? No. Not even the Austrian Brownshirt...especially not him.
