Casey Anthony Case: 'Mommy's Little Girl' author defends title, book
3:06 PM EDT, June 25, 2009
Among the most-frequent complaints:
1. A book is premature before Casey Anthony's murder trial.
"Maybe we shouldn't have any news stories, either," Fanning said today from her home in Texas. "If it's wrong to do this, then it's wrong to have newspaper stories, magazine stories and TV reports. You can't wait on the vagaries of the justice system."
2. The Anthonys will profit from the book.
"A lot of people in the general public seem to believe to write a book like this, you have to purchase rights," Fanning said. "Not true. It's no more true of writers who work for newspapers. People make the assumption I put money in the Anthonys' pocket. It's not true, and it's not ethical. There were enough people to talk to. I could round out what was available from documentation."
3. The title is disrespectful to Caylee.
"Some people are upset by the title," Fanning said. "I didn't pick the title, but I thought it was a good title. No matter how horrendous a mother might be, that child is always mommy's little girl. Children love without any limitation."
4. She is profiting off the tragedy.
"I'm making my living," Fanning said. "That's it. This is what I do to get my paycheck. I write books."
Fanning said she couldn't discuss her conclusion because lawyers are looking over the book before its publication.
"In all my books, there's an afterword, and I give my opinion," she said. "And it's there in this book."

Prosecutors Want Photos Of Casey Anthony's Tattoo
Posted: 4:06 pm EDT June 22, 2009
Updated: 4:06 pm EDT June 25, 2009
Prosecutors want permission to go into the jail to take pictures of a tattoo Casey Anthony got two weeks after her daughter, Caylee, disappeared.
Eyewitness News previously reported about the tattoo on Casey's back, which reads "La Vita Bella," which is Italian for "The Beautiful Life."
The state believes it could be important to their case.
PROSECUTORS WANT STOLEN CHECK TRIAL MOVED UP
Prosecutors want the judge to schedule Casey's trial involving stolen checks before her murder trial.
Prosecutors filed a request asking that Casey Anthony go on trial for the fraud charges within the next two months.
The defense convinced the judge last year to postpone Casey's trial on charges she stole checks and cashed them to buy beer, food and her infamous white sunglasses.
Now that her murder trial could be a year off, prosecutors want to move forward on the lesser charges.
