CAYLEE'S RULE

    2. Petition by

      *Connie Sanseverino*

      Clearwater, FL

On July 5, 2011, Casey Anthony was found not guilty of first degree murder in the death of her daughter Caylee Marie Anthony, at the Orange County Courthouse in Orlando, Florida . The only charges she received were 4 charges of false information to a law enforcement officer, all misdemeanor charges. The sentence for this was 4 years in prison, $4,000 fine for four counts of falsifying police reports. Since she had been in jail since October 14, 2008 and she was  given time off for good behavior, she was released from jail on, July 17, 2011. She walked out of the jail booking center with her attorney, Jose Baez, at about 12:10 a.m. Escorted by an armed contingent of law enforcement officers.
 
 I believe it is time for Florida to make some changes to its Jury Reform rules. I believe making changes could help jurors with issues they have about the cases and in return it will also help jurors be more informed when it comes to making a verdict. I would like to propose a two part rule as part of a comprehensive Jury rules package for Florida's criminal and civil trial proceedings.
 
Some States have already implemented similar, but not exactly the same rules into their Jury Reform, and I feel that Florida could benefit ultimately from these changes.

Here is my proposed Jury Reform rule for the State of Florida called CAYLEE'S RULE, in honor of Caylee Marie Anthony.

Jurors, including alternates, are permitted to discuss the evidence among themselves in the jury room during recesses from the trial when all are present, as long as they reserve judgment about the outcome of the case until deliberations commence. The court shall remind jurors not to discuss the case with anyone other than fellow jurors during the trial.

Jurors can ask questions of witnesses during the trial. Once all Attorneys have finished their cross-examintion of a witnesss, then jurors will have an opportunity to quesition the witness to clarify any of the testimony they have given.

      This happened less than 5 miles from where I live. The charges the court came up with are correct but I believe the could have charged her with other things.. Such a sad, sad situation. An innocent toddler is now dead and she still has no justice. These new stipulations seem fair and I hope OUR FLORIDA STATE REPRESENTATIVES can implement the ideas given.

      Because a jury should be allowed to question witnesses they do not get all the information they need to make a good decision.

      Sent from My iPad I have. Beautiful Daughter, Carlee.  She's 6 yrs old, and if Anything ever happened to her it would Destroy me & my whole Family. I Believe that  there was & never will be justice for Caylee.  Her Monster (mother) got away with murder & if  children can be saved from the horrible things that are being done to them then I'm all for it.  Someone needs to have a voice for this Beautiful little Girl, since her family's (except her PaPa George) has only been concerned with that Pathetic Casey it seems that's all they've worried its stll all about Casey I don't  want Caylee to be forgotten any more then she already has.  They've closed the Charity in Caylee's name and per Cindy Anthony she gave the $monies$ from it to Casey & some to Lee. I wonder how those who donated in Caylee's name feel about her killer getting their money.  I hear they also did some home remolding so their house was nice for visiting families of lost children. I have been reading Cindy's Tweets and she doesn't mention Caylee much, but she sure talks about Casey sticking up for her every chance she gets. Like mother like daughter SELFISH SELF-CENTERED PEOPLE.  I want JUSTICE FOR A LIFE LOST WAY TOO SOON & IN SUCH A HORRIBLE WAY....I DON'T WANT ANOTHER MONSTER TO GET AWAY WITH HURTING A CHILD. GOD BLESS CAYLEE.

      I still feel insulted by the Jury's decision in Casey Anthony's case. My heart aches for all children who must endure the abuse of adults obviously unworthy of the trust placed in them to protect these little ones. I don't understand why Child Abuse and those the ultimately kill a child, such as I bdelieve Casey Anthony is guilty of, get lighter sentences than those who commit misdemeanors without harming anyone but themselves! As others before me have said, surely there was enough evidence to tye her to the crime.
