Court strikes two Casey Anthony convictions

Two of Casey Anthony's convictions of providing "false information to a law enforcement officer during a missing person investigation" were
thrown out today, while an additional two convictions on the same counts were upheld by Florida's 5th District Court of Appeal.

Casey Anthony's lawyer Cheney Mason tells In Session correspondent Jean Casarez that when he called Anthony to tell her the ruling, Anthony
said, "We keep fighting."

The next step in the process would be to appeal the remaining two convictions to the Florida Supreme Court.

In 2011, a jury found Anthony not guilty of first-degree murder and the other most serious charges against her in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter.

    She needs to be put on trial again and sent to the big house. The only reason she walks free is because she's been splooking all officers and powers that be since day one.

      Portland Tony, i think you are the only one in this country that still believes our "system" is working. Good for you- optimism is in short supply. The rest of us are just heart sick in the realization that it is beyond broken.

      The murder no....Casey Anthony yes! She was tried by the media and found innocent by a jury of her peers. That's how we do it in America. Got a better system?

    I do not know why In Session keeps talking about the Casey Anthony trial. Yes, it was bad that the child got killed, but there is a lot of children who have been killed by the hands of an adult. It time to let this story rest. She have been tried and was found not guilty. Why keep talking about. This is not going to bring the child back. She may not be judged the way you wanted but she will be judged by the savior. Get over it keep it moving.

    It will NOT bring that child back...but so many other mothers have followed in her foot steps since...It's actually not about her! NO one cares about HER! It's about fixing the system....this is the perfect case that shows that the system is broken.
    It has NOTHING to do about HER! It's about justice for Caylee and all other children that could end up JUST like her!
    If we take a look into history.....who do laws get changed? but using existing cases! Amber alerts...would you have told anybody the kid is dead get over it! NO...that is how the laws are changed!
    Again no one cares about the defense team nor the prosecution team we care about PROTECTING the children and FIXING the system!

    There's nothing wrong with examining a flawed process and making changes. Keep talking about it. What went wrong. Why it went wrong. What can be done better. She clearly did it but was not convicted. Therefore something was wrong.
