    Kind of vague, but probably felony charges, I'm guessing she'll be out in less than 10...but more likely 5 or less:

    Misdemeanor vs. Felony
    Lying on a police report is considered a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the type of crime reported. If you lied about a misdemeanor, a non-capital felony -- such as insurance fraud -- or missing person, for instance, the crime is a misdemeanor, according to Miami attorney firm Hassett & Associates. Most cases fall into this category. However, if you filed a report about a capital felony -- such as attempted murder -- you may be personally charged with a felony.

    Fines, Jail Time or Both
    In most cases, reporting false information to law enforcement will result in a fine, time in a county jail or both. The amount of fine or jail time varies by state. Lying to the police in Alabama, for instance, means up to one year in jail and $2,000 in fines. In Colorado, jail time maxes out at six months and the fine at $750. In New Jersey, the maximum penalty jumps to 18 months in jail and a fine of $10,000.

    Too many people watch CSI and think that if you don't have a definitive DNA link, then somebody else must have done it. Put this one up there with the OJ Simpson decision. Just astounding.

    The jusy was not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that Casey Anthony was guilty of the most egregious counts against her. Our system works. She is just as innocent as OJ Simpson.

    A pittance... it's a misdemeanor I believe. I'd have to look it up to be sure.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It is interesting to me the reaction to the verdict. I may not agree with it, but it is our system of justice. Guess there was enough reasonalble doubt.

    It also is interesting seeing the comments when compared (I know different situation) to the Jared Loughner Tucson shooting comments where it is no doubt he was the shooter, yet metally unstable.

    Wow, proven innocent in a court of law and people still want her head on a platter.

    At what point does "proven innocent" actually mean that?

    I'm glad she walked, there was no real evidence she killed the child. I believe she lied, but did not murder the girl.

    Good job, jury.

    Not heartless but a defender of our system of justice. The state could not and did not prove Casey killed her baby beyond a reasonable doubt.

    I'm infuriated.

    This is not justice.

    I'll leave for now to cool off.

    This is madness.

    Just like OJ Simpson.

    So (to your whole post - the definition of a mis/fel) . . . since the cornoner didn't determine the cause of death it's - what? Missing person . . . a misdemeanor? Right here I wish I knew more about legalities.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    What more is needed? Holy **** - many other people have been sentenced with LESS evidence.

    Manslaught / murder - I get that it might not be solid enough for that.
    But abuse and neglect? All the warning signs were there.
    Nothing linked up. The hair didn't confirm a dead body in the drunk, and no solid (or proven) evidence of decomp in the trunk puts that into question as well. The "smell of death" is subjective and no proven test exists to determine the specific smell of human decomp. A dead body is pretty significant, but it can't be unquestionably linked to Casey.

    As I said, the evidence was weak, and that's unfortunate.
