“NOT GUILTY,” reads the clerk as Casey Anthony stands to hear her fate

“Will the defendant rise, along with counsel,” said Judge Belvin Perry, setting up the Casey Anthony Oscar Moment that elevated tension at her murder trial to a crescendo of butterflies swarming.
Then he ordered the clerk to publish the verdict, as she read, “Not guilty” to every count linking Anthony to killing her child.
Now Casey, aka “Tot Mom” is about to walk free next Wednesday, after time served is credited against todays four year sentence for lying to police and a tbd amount to reimburse the county for the massive manhours spent debunking her lies.
That fine, along with possible civil suits from the likes of Tim Miller, head of Texas Equusearch who says hunting for Caylee cost his non-profit $112,000, and the Nanny whose life was ruined after Casey falsley fingered her for kidnapping, could eat into the millions of dollars she stands to earn from book and movie deals.
Who knows, maybe she will land a few acting gigs as well, based on her turn on a dime tears, glares and piercing stares.
She’s certainly got plenty of raw tape to put together a convincing pitch reel. Her performance has also won her a few hearthrobs, like the boy toys outside the courthose waving signs that beg Casey to “marry me,” and untold proposals in fan letters. Does she even care about millions of haters who believe a child killer got away with murder?
One report has her eager to have another baby, too, perhaps to conjure sympathy and replace the one she lost, ‘er killed?
