Casey Anthony verdict: Sheriff advises residents to stay “peaceful”

As the jury’s decision shocked America, Orange County Sheriff asked the community to maintain peace.

Casey Anthony’s defense team expressed joy at the jury’s verdict. Instead, the prosecution refused to give any comments.

But Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demmings addressed a special request.

“As the verdict has been rendered, we ask our community to respect the decision the jury and court have made today,” Demmings said, referring to the surprising verdict.

“Historically, there have been other high profile trials that have resulted in civil disobedience. Regardless of one’s personal beliefs about the innocence or guilt of Casey Marie Anthony, that you maintain your peaceful resolve,” he continued.

Demmings also advised people who don’t live in the neighborhood where the Anthony family resides to avoid the area, adding that deputy sheriffs will be patrolling “to ensure order and peace are maintained.”

State Attorney Lawson Lamar commented on the Casey Anthony case, arguing that the lack of evidence was the greatest misfortune.

“With no smoking gun, and a tiny victim who was reduced – by time and the elements – to skeletal remains, those remains lacking in any chemical evidence that could be brought forward, this was a dry bones case,” he said, adding that the prosecution’s case was, “very, very difficult to prove. The delay in recovering little Caylee’s remains worked to our considerable disadvantage.”
