Casey Anthony files for bankruptcy as she vows to 'keep fighting' legal issues

Casey Anthony's fate keeps changing.

Two years ago, her murder trial for the death of her toddler riveted the country, ending with Anthony's dramatic acquittal. But she was convicted on four counts of lying to authorities.

On Friday, an appeals court threw out two of those convictions.

Now, the 26-year-old has filed for bankruptcy, citing almost $800,000 in liabilities.

And her legal struggles are far from over.

    This is not surprising given the high cost of criminal defense. It looks like the lawyers won again. They almost always win. No wonder so many people hate lawyers.

    In a civil case law, the losing side usually pays lawyer fees. In criminal matters, if you're charged, you gotta pay the man, no matter how innocent you are!

    What's the point of reporting on Casey Anthony? Answer: to deter you from the fact that you elected a socialistic communist who is bankrupting the nation.

      I see you still do not know the meaning of "socialist" or "communist".
      You also need to remember that Congress approves of all expenditures.

      I guess you are right Banasy, the government already owes my family millions for oil royalties and mineral rights for millions of acres of land in south Louisiana, now they want to claim ownership of that land so they don't have to pay us millions. You're right that's not socialism or communism, it's simply criminal.
