Prosecutors going to are not going to pursue perjury charges against Cindy Anthony, Casey Anthony’s mother for her lying testimony during her Casey’s murder trial.
During the trial, Cindy shocked prosecutors by testifying she did internet searches for chloroform on the family’s computer. Prosecutors believed, along with sheriff’s investigators, that Casey Anthony had performed the search and not Cindy.
Witnesses then challenge Cindy’s claim. Days after the verdict, it was believed that prosecutors might charge her with perjury but they did not do so.
Currently they are looking into allegations of witness tampering, which did not involve Cindy Anthony.
I must say I am appalled at their decision to not go after Cindy for lying. Anyone else who lied on the stand would be fined and jailed for contempt of court. Maybe the prosecution feels she suffered enough.
So now we have a free Casey for probably killing her child, whether it be intentional or an accident. She didn’t get charge for manslaughter or anything other than lying to police. And now we have a free Cindy who blatantly lied to the court to try and save her daughter. What is wrong with this picture?
