    Not if said only in the opening statement. opening statements are not evidence.

    Even if there was a constitutional amendment, it would have to be retro-active to apply to Casey, and that would never happen.

    In your letter, please note that KC did lie to FBI agent Nick Savage. Some take issue with whether or not what she said was a lie, but during a videotaped informal talk with Savage not long after her arrest, KC said "I feel in my gut she's still alive".

    Our best bet is to wait for KC do something else to land her behind back in the pokey.

    I always thought that new evidence is different than double jeopardy. Evidence not available at the time of the original trial, or even jury/witness tampering were also exceptions to double jeopardy?

    No that is only in order to exonerate someone who was convicted.

    Right, but not to re-try the same person.

    That statement cannot be proven to be a lie. She very well may have felt in her gut that Caylee was still alive and still known in her heart and mind that she was not. Saying you feel something is not stating you know something.

    I really don't think the FBI would be interested in retrying this case. Sorry, but if that's all there is, it's just not enough, IMHO.

    I disagree just because she stated as a feeling doesnt make it not a lie. According to her DT she knew from day one Caylee was dead.. How can you imply its a feeling when in fact you know your child was already dead. A lie is a lie. Will the FBI retry her for lying to the FBI probably not. Which IMO sends a bad message to others who might do the same thing in the future.

    That statement purposely mislead law enforcement. Statements like that kept LE on a path to find a missing girl.

    The FBI doesn't try a case...the Department of Justice does.

    I have a question...do we know everything that the FBI was investigating? Do we know that every interview or report has been released?

    I think every suspected murderer lies their head off to LE and FBI...that's what they do, if they are talking but have decided not to confess. I think LE would be kept awfully busy prosecuting people who lie to them about whether or not they murdered someone. Not too many answer "yes.", IMO.

    I don't wonder about it because I know that 6 months in a swamp would destroy most or all evidence of DNA. I think you are exactly right about the charges. The prosecution over charged in my opinion, but in their defense I believe they thought that with all the media hoop-la and everyone thinking and convinced that KC killed Caylee before anyone or the media knew what the evidence was, they thought they had a conviction in the bag. The trial just didn't play out that way.

    The OP didn't say it was or was not a lie. They said "That statement cannot be proven to be a lie." There is no way it can be proven either way.

    Just the way they have to doublespeak to not say anything incriminating gives me the creeps.
    We know lies when we hear them.

    "Originally Posted by TxLady2

    who you might owe an apology to. and please don't use the word "we", I am a member here as well, and you do not speak for me.
