Panel hears Anthony's appeal on misdemeanor counts
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida appellate court is being asked Tuesday to decide whether Casey Anthony was in police custody when she made statements that led to her being convicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement officers.
Anthony's attorneys are appealing the misdemeanor convictions on the grounds that her statements were inadmissible at her murder trial since she hadn't been read her Miranda rights, which warn suspects that they can remain silent and that their statements can be used against them in court. The three judges on the Fifth District Court of Appeals aren't expected to rule Tuesday.
Anthony was acquitted in 2011 of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
