2008.07.22 Bail Hearing & Charges Against Casey
Casey Anthony, 22, is charged only with child neglect and lying to investigators. Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland set her bond at $500,000 Tuesday, saying the law did not allow him to hold her without bail.
He set the unusually high amount after hearing about evidence of human decomposition allegedly found in Anthony's yard and car. Her daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony, has been missing since mid-June.
"Not a bit of useful information has been provided by Ms. Anthony as to the whereabouts of her daughter," Strickland said. "And I would add that the truth and Ms. Anthony are strangers."
Anthony is charged with child neglect, making false official statements and obstructing a criminal investigation. Authorities say she did not report the girl missing until last week, and only then at her own mother's insistence.

The line of questioning eventually turned to the family's financial standing after Cindy indicated that money for bond would be available if granted.
Drane-Burdick inquired about a mortgage on the Anthony's Orlando home and other loans on which the family had defaulted. The defense objected, but Judge Strickland permitted the line of questioning stating, "It's painful but relevant."
Asked whether Casey would be under constant supervision upon release, Cindy responded, "Casey won't have access to a car. I'm not going to handcuff her anywhere. I will provide someone with her at all times," said Cindy Anthony. "I will have someone 'Casey-sit' her, because she's not a baby."

Good question LI Mom.
She claims Casey's friends have already agreed to watch her. I wonder if that is true.

I kind of feel sorry her the grandma!
It's not her fault and she notified police.
Now she has to put up bail.... she's not rich.
I feel for her, her heart must be breaking too.

Frankly, I don't think GM is worried about being homeless.... she's probably counting on selling the story to Hollywood &/or making a book deal.
I do think Casey & GM both have very serious mental health problems.... their nonsense about "investigating" the crime themselves or letting Casey out of jail SO she can help find Casey is SO, SO removed from anything even close to the land of reality it's almost laughable that the attorney is willing to go on tv & repeat this stupidity.
I do think there are reasons unknown to the public that the judge was even willing to grant bail to this self-absorbed brat.... maybe LE (FBI, detectives) were afraid the family would totally stop cooperating if poor Casey was persecuted.
Giving her bail at least stops the family from crying victim & puts the focus back on the REAL VICTIM..... Caylee.

After hearing the 911 calls, I'm convinced her family had NO PART in Caylee's disappearance OR any type of coverup after the fact.
I think the only thing they are guilty of is holding their tongues & NOT wanting to say anything that might get back to Casey. Their only hope in finding what happened to Caylee is if Casey ever decides she's tired of lying & hiding the truth.
I think bailing Casey out will be THE biggest mistake this family can make. Casey will turn around & break their hearts even worse than she already has.
I hope Casey's lawyer is telling her to start cooperating BEFORE the police find a body & it's too late for her.
