On Jan. 8, 2013, a panel of Fla. judges heard the legal team of Casey Anthony appeal her four convictions for lying to law enforcement during the search for her toddler daughter, Caylee Anthony, in 2008.
Although the jury found there was not enough evidence to convict Anthony, 26, of killing her child, it did determine she had lied to police when being questioned about her daughter’s disappearance.
WFTV reports that Anthony’s attorneys are asking the court to determine whether their client was actually in police custody when she made the statements that led to her convictions for lying.
The report notes that if the court decides Anthony was in police custody at the time of the statements, the convictions could be overturned. This is because what she told authorities would have been inadmissible, as she had not been read her Miranda rights.
Until last month, Anthony seemed to be in hiding as no one had seen her out and about since her murder trial. A cell phone photo captured the image of a woman who appears to be Anthony eating at Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill in Lake Worth in mid-December.
