The jury that found Casey Anthony not guilty of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee declined to discuss the verdict that surprised many, ABC News reported.

Judge Belvin Perry, who presided over the trial, ordered that the jurors' named be barred from being made public until further notice.

We are not releasing their names at this time. They are asking you to respect their privacy, Karen Levey, the director of due process services for the Orange County Circuit Court, told reporters waiting to hear from the jurors. They are just not interested ... a universal, unequivocal, no.

Orange County sheriff officers would be transporting the seven woman and five men who comprised the jury back to their hotel, where they have been sequestered for more than six weeks, Levey said. The five alternate jurors also declined to speak publicly about the case.

Casey Anthony, who faced the possibility of the death penalty, was found not guilty of murdering Caylee on either count of first degree murder or aggravated manslaughter.

They did, however, find Anthony guilty on four counts of providing false information to law enforcement, which are misdemeanors. It's possible she could be released from prison later this week.
