Casey Anthony appeals lying convictions
ORLANDO – Attorneys representing Casey Anthony will appear at the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach on Tuesday to appeal convictions that she lied to authorities, WESH is reporting.
Lawyers are appealing convictions that she lied to authorities during the search for Caylee.
Caylee Anthony’s body was eventually found dumped in the woods near the Anthony home.
Anthony, 26, was convicted of lying to lead detective Yuri Melich when she said she left Caylee on or about June 9, 2008, with a nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez at the Sawgrass Apartments in Orlando.
She was also convicted of lying when she claimed she was employed at Universal Studios, had told Universal co-workers that Caylee was missing, and later received a phone call from Caylee.
According to WESH, Anthony’s lawyers will argue that the four lies should have been considered one offense
The attorneys could argue her statements should be thrown out at trial because she was not read Miranda rights.
The hearing is slated for 1:30 p.m.
