Birdsong Interviewed About Casey Anthony Indictment

This has not been a good week for Casey Anthony, the 22 year old mother of baby Caylee Anthony who has not been seen since June 15, 2008.  Prosecutors in Orlando sent the case to a grand jury to determine whether charges should be brought against the young mother.

On Tueday morning, October 14, Orlando’s Fox 35 TV morning news interviewed Birdsong concerning the grand jury investigation at its 6:30 and 7:30 time slots.  Later that day the  prosecutor’s office announced that Casey Anthony had been indicted on seven criminal counts, including First Degree Murder.  Prosecutors have not decided whether they will seek the death penalty.

The next day, Wednesday, Birdsong was interviewed by telephone by Amy Edwards of the Orlando Sentinel concerning the possible use of  the death penalty in the case.  Birdsong told the press that women seldom get the death penalty in this country.  The story and Birdsong’s opinion on women and the death penalty appeared on the front page of the October 16, 2008 edition of the Orlando Sentinel.  Here is a link to that story.



  1. Professor Birdsong,

    I really appreciate you taking time from your busy schedule to talk to me yesterday. It was truly an honor to get your insight into the Anthony case.
    Thank you!

  2. No death penalty against Casey. Whoa whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, Nancy Grace has already said that Casey would be facing the death penalty. Could the courts have screwed things up, or is it just that Nancy is all screwed up and is proven to be wrong yet again? Hummmmm, good question, read the CNN transcripts. The prosecution case continues to crumble. How sad. 😦
