Casey Anthony has all but disappeared off the face of the planet after her sensational murder trial back in 2011. While photo upon photo of Casey Anthony partying it up while her daughter was missing was shared during her trial, it seems she now lives a life of nervous solitude according her lawyer-turned-friend, Cheney Mason.
Mason, who just that year had been selected by Florida Monthly magazine as one of Florida’s top lawyers, was brought on board pro-bono. This was after giving extensive advise to Casey Anthony’s then unknown and under-experienced lawyer, Jose Baez.
Mason said he joined Casey Anthony’s team not only because he believed she was innocent of the murder of her daughter, Caylee, but also because he was upset about the way the media at the time treated Baez.
“I was offended by it. I was offended by the fact that he wasn’t being treated fairly. I didn’t know Baez. I had never met him,” Mason said.
He says that Casey Anthony still insists that she is innocent. He says that during the trial Casey Anthony became very upset when a plea deal was brought up.
“Casey got very angry about that. She got very angry to hear talk about it. She didn’t want to hear it.” Mason said. “Casey would fight it ’til her last breath. She didn’t kill her daughter.”
Even though Casey Anthony maintains her innocence, she is still guilty in the eyes of many Americans who sat for hours watching the details of her trial as they were released. Therefore, it is nearly impossible for her to live a normal life.
“I think Casey has a lot of world left to have to deal with. She hasn’t been freed from her incarceration yet ’cause she can’t go out. She can’t go to a beauty parlor, she can’t go shopping to a department store, she can’t go to a restaurant, she can’t even go to McDonald’s. She can’t do anything”, Mason said of Casey Anthony’s life of solitude.
If she is innocent, it’s sad that Casey Anthony’s life has been even more destroyed after the murder of her daughter. If she is guilty, then I suppose a life of rejection and loneliness is the best she should have hoped for and way better than she deserves.
