The definitive inside story of the case that captivated the nation. . . and the verdict that no one saw coming.
It was the trial that stunned America. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?
In Imperfect Justice, prosecutor Jeff Ashton, one of the principal players in the case's drama, sheds light on those questions and much more, telling the behind-the-scenes story of the investigation, the trial, and the now-infamous verdict. Complete with never-before-revealed information about the case and the accused, Ashton examines what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced of Casey Anthony's guilt.
Shadow of a doubt
I hate to admit it, but reading the story from Jose Baez's viewpoint made me doubt my original opinion after watching the trial.
Great Book for Law Students
Great book for any law student in Florida. Even though the case involved is from 2012. Still breaks down the process of a criminal very well, and goes into detail about procedural rules. I really enjoyed this book and Jeff Ashton is a fascinating attorney. Definitely recommend!
You can't put this book down. It's hard reading it knowing the outcome but I guess I wanted to try to understand how the jury could have gotten it so wrong. It makes sense to me now but it is still so hard to swallow. That poor little girl!
