Casey Anthony, the woman acquitted of the murder of her two-year-old child Caylee and is being dubbed America's Most Hated will walk free within hours, as absolute uncertainty shrouds her future. Orange County Jail officials are reportedly planning a midnight release of Anthony, as her defense team will try everything to keep her away from media spotlight and public wrath. According to an attorney of Anthony, she is scared to leave jail, given numerous threats on her life as a large section of public believes that she is guilty of murder.
Drawing lessons from her behavior during the murder trial and her dysfunctional family, Anthony doesn't have too many options to go about her post-acquittal life. Here are a few things she could do to get going with the new life.
1. Ensure safety- According to an AP report, Casey Anthony's legal team received an emailed threat that included a modified photo of Anthony with a bullet hole through her forehead. With one of the murder case jurors quitting her job to go into hiding, Casey cannot be overcautious on the outside. Security protocol would get her an intensely guarded possibly secluded residence, from where she could connect with the world through wireless means.
2. Sue her father George Anthony for sexual assault- Casey's attorney Jose Baez had alleged that she had been a victim of incest with her father sexually assaulting her followed by her brother. According to Casey's defense, her mother Cindy Anthony did nothing to protect her minor daughter which allegedly affected Casey's mental stability. As the statute of limitations on these alleged crimes has not necessarily expired, Casey could get a compensation of somewhere around $50 million, if her lawyers could successfully pull it off.
3. Find a partner- Casey is being released to a world where none, including her family, would accept her. On the contrary, rebuffs from all quarters (even social networking isn't in the cards for her as Anthony hate groups are aplenty) and seclusion are likely to sit hard on Casey, who is otherwise termed a party animal. Finding a suitable partner is going to be hard for her, but if in case she got lucky, there are higher chances of her psychological redemption.
4. Go on the Pill- In a letter released last year, Casey wrote to an inmate that she dreamt of having another baby. I had a dream not too long ago that I was pregnant, she wrote. It was like having Cays all over again.
I've thought about adopting, which even sounds weird to me saying it, but there are so many children that deserve to be loved, Anthony wrote to inmate Robyn Adams at Florida's Orlando County Jail. Let's make a deal? Let's get pregnant together?
A second child might not confront the same fate that Caylee did, but with the jurors admitting that Casey Anthony's family is dysfunctional, how can anybody be sure that the child would grow up as a healthy individual in a caring environment?
Instead of ruining another life, Casey should rather focus on the individual that she is and spend more time contemplating on how she can get her life back.
5. Find a psychiatrist- Therapy sessions with a good psychiatrist might or might not work for Casey, but right now, instead of strategizing for media interviews or television shows, Casey should rather be visiting a doctor and lead a life as quiet as possible. If she had actually been a victim of horrendous sexual assault from family members as she alleges, an opportunity where she can open up all her secrets might work wonders in redeeming her lifestyle.
