Six years after her acquittal of the trial of her 2-year-old daughter’s murder, Casey Anthony did an interview, where she said she sleeps “pretty good at night,” and that had she lived, her daughter would be “a rock-music loving badass”.
Known as the most hated mother in America, Casey Anthony, now 30, finally broke her silence after the 6-week trial in 2011. This comes just weeks after former Orange County, Florida, Judge Belvin Perry, who presided over the trial, said he still believes Anthony killed her daughter accidentally.
She admitted lying to the police, but described herself as “one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied,” but maintains in the new interview she has no idea what happened.

Six years after she was acquitted of murdering her daughter, Casey Anthony maintains she has no idea how the two-year-old died – and says she sleeps ‘pretty good’ at night.
The 30-year-old, who was branded the most hated mom in America during the six-week trial in 2011, has broken her silence about two-year-old Caylee’s death.
She admitted lying to the police, but described herself as ‘one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied’.
Anthony, giving an interview for the first time since the trial, she said in halting, sober tones: ‘I’m still not even certain as I stand here today about what happened.’
It comes weeks after former Orange County, Florida, Judge Belvin Perry, who presided over the trial, said he still believes Anthony killed her daughter accidentally.
In a rare interview, Anthony admitted she is aware that most of the world believes she killed the child, who vanished nearly nine years ago.
But Anthony revealed she views herself as an Alice in Wonderland-type figure, condemned despite her guilt not being proven.
She now works for South Florida investigator Patrick McKenna, who was the lead investigator for OJ Simpson ahead of his acquittal for murder, and she said there are a ‘lot of parallels’ between the two cases.
And she continued: ‘Caylee would be 12 right now. And would be a total badass. I’d like to think she’d be listening to classic rock, playing sports and putting up with no nonsense.’
She told police that her daughter had been taken off my a mysterious babysitter, and could not account for her daughter’s whereabouts for the month after she vanished.
‘Based off what was in the media,’ Anthony stated, ‘I understand the reasons people feel about me. I understand why people have the opinions that they do.’
Despite her pariah status, she maintained, she does not ‘give a s***’ about what people think of her.
The trial was carried live on cable networks and was the focus of daily commentaries by HLN’s Nancy Grace, who called her ‘the most hated mom in America,’ and, derisively, ‘tot mom.’
Anthony views herself as something of an Alice in Wonderland figure, with the public as the Red Queen.
‘The queen is proclaiming: “No, no, sentence first, verdict afterward,”‘ she said. ‘I sense and feel to this day that is a direct parallel to what I lived.
‘My sentence was doled out long before there was a verdict. Sentence first, verdict afterward. People found me guilty long before I had my day in court.’
