Casey Anthony case comes to a controversial close

From Amazon news:
The Casey Anthony trial that took the nation by storm has left us in the wake of one of the most surprising acquittals in memory.
Casey Anthony went on trial to face conviction of the murder of her daughter Caylee, who mysteriously went missing for a month before calling authorities. Even at that point, she didn’t report her dead; she reported her missing. She also went on trial for giving false information to authorities and child abuse. She eventually was acquitted of the abuse and murder charges, but was found guilty for the false information.
The mysterious events surrounding the case drew America in, especially citizens with children themselves.
“It was incredibly personal, especially to parents,” said psychology teacher Charles Roeder. “You just imagine that happening to your own child.”
Eventually Anthony was acquitted and released less then two weeks later. Since then she has been living in an undisclosed location in Colorado Springs, away from the public eye. Many fear an act of revenge will be brought upon her to get back at her for what many people believe she did, but sociology teacher Jason Erb disagreed.
“It wouldn’t surprise me [if someone tried to hurt her], but I don’t think it’s a major concern… Most people won’t try to right a wrong with another wrong.”
Regardless of what happens, some people believe she received a different type of punishment.
“She will have to live with what she did for the rest of her life,” said senior Kyle Ellerman.
Roeder seconds that thought, saying, “She may be able to live a normal personal life, but in the community, she’s infamous. Maybe that’s her justice, maybe that’s her punishment.”
Regardless of people’s opinions, the case has been closed, and Casey Anthony, in the eyes of the law, was declared innocent. While many people disagree and believe she is responsible for Caylee’s death, the jury’s decision is final, proving she really did indeed love to party, bringing the case to a close, however controversial it may have been.
