ORLANDO, Florida– Casey Anthony was acquitted over a year ago of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. Now, her lawyers will be back in a Florida courtroom Tuesday to appeal Anthony’s convictions for lying to authorities.
According to Reuters, the four convictions stem from claims Anthony made after Caylee disappeared in 2008.
Caylee’s body was eventually found in the woods near the Anthony home.
Reuters reports, according to an appellate brief, Anthony’s lawyers will argue that the four lies should have been considered one offense, because the statements were made during an extended interrogation by detectives.
The Anthony family is originally from Trumbull County
Caylee’s grandfather, George Anthony, was a Trumbull County sheriff’s deputy and homicide detective.
The family moved to Orlando in 1989.
