ORLANDO, Fla. (January 25, 2013)—Florida’s 5th District Court of Appeals Friday set aside two of the four convictions Casey Anthony faced for lying to detectives during the investigation into her missing 2-year-old daughter.
The court agreed with Anthony's attorneys Friday that two of the charges constituted double jeopardy.
The judges, however, ruled that the trial court was correct to allow her statements to detectives to be used during her murder trial.
Anthony's attorneys had argued that she was in police custody at the time and hadn't been read her Miranda rights.
Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee in 2011. Jurors convicted her of four counts of lying to detectives, and her attorneys appealed those convictions.
