Casey Anthony to Appeal Lying Convictions

Lawyers for Casey Anthony are headed back to court on Tuesday to appeal Anthony’s convictions for lying to authorities in the case regarding the disappearance and death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

Although Anthony was acquitted of murder charges in 2011, she was found guilty on four counts of lying to law enforcement officers, which including lying about leaving Caylee with the nanny, where she worked, and saying the little girl was missing and later saying that she was alive.

According to UPI, Casey’s attorneys will argue the lying convictions should have been treated as one conviction since they were obtained during a long interrogation, and more importantly, that they should have been thrown out since police failed to read Anthony her Miranda rights at the time.

The hearing will take place at the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach.
