Description

Who killed two-year-old Caylee Anthony? From the moment Caylee Anthony was reported missing, and her remains subsequently found in the woods around her Orlando home, America was mesmerized by this shocking case and the behavior of the girl's mother, Casey, who would eventually be arrested, charged, and tried for the child's death. The resulting media firestorm reached a fever pitch on July 5, 2011, when a Florida jury acquitted the twenty-two-year-old defendant of murder. The verdict stunned a nation and opened a floodgate of opinion and speculation: Was Casey Anthony innocent? Or was this the worst courtroom decision since the O..J. Simpson trial? Now, one of the principal players in the case's drama, prosecutor Jeff Ashton, offers a riveting, sure to be headline-making look at the investigation, the trial, and the verdict that rocked America. In this inside account, Ashton - a career prosecutor for the state of Florida who's tried over eighty murder cases - goes where the press and pundits have only speculated, detailing the day-to-day investigation, examining how the prosecution built their case, and explaining how a woman so seemingly shrouded in guilt was found innocent. Throughout, he details what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced of Casey Anthony's guilt. Packed with never-before-revealed stories, "Imperfect Justice" is an in-depth look at this tragic case and the mysterious woman at the center of it, going behind the scenes, beyond the courtroom, and into the mind of an accused killer who walked free.show more

Back cover copy

The definitive inside story of the case that captivated the nation. . . and the verdict that no one saw coming. It was the trial that stunned America. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like? In Imperfect Justice, prosecutor Jeff Ashton, one of the principal players in the case's drama, sheds light on those questions and much more, telling the behind-the-scenes story of the investigation, the trial, and the now-infamous verdict. Complete with never-before-revealed information about the case and the accused, Ashton examines what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced of Casey Anthony's guilt.show more
