A videographer who was one of three journalists who were granted access to the Orange County jail facility to document Anthony's release. This is his briefing to reporters after Casey Anthony's release:
Concerned about security, officials had three scenarios ready for Casey Anthony's release.
Scenario no. 1 was the front door. Deputies wanted to make it look like any other normal release. She came out at 12:11 a.m.
Deputies did not share the other two scenarios with the journalists.
She had a sign of relief on her face as she walked out wearing a bright pink T-shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes.
She thanked an SRT sergeant and walked quickly into a waiting sport utility vehicle.
Matt Sedensky, the second of three reporters granted access to document Casey Anthony's release, offered this information at his briefing:
- Anthony was given $537.68 from her inmate account
- There were no threats received against her at the jail, but they had a number of contingency plans
- "This release had an unusual amount of security. So therefore, in that sense, it would not be a normal release," said Allen Moore, the spokesman for the Orange County Corrections Department in a statement.
- "We have made every effort not to provide any special treatment for her. She has been treated as every other inmate," Moore also said.
