Yeah, if we lived in Florida, we'd been pissed too.
The numbers are in and in total, almost $700K Florida tax dollars were spent on the Casey Anthony investigation and murder trial of her two year old daughter.
Let's break it down for ya'll:
$293,123 went to Orange County Sheriff's Office. This is the money spent by the office from the momen the criminal investigation began when Casey's mom, Cindy Anthony reported Caylee missing to when her remains were found in December of that same year.
$186,903 went to covering Jury expenses, including selection, hotel, meals for 12 jurors and five alternate jurors for seven-week trial.
$91,000 went to the Prosecution for their expenses: expert witnesses, lab tests, etc.
$119,000 went to the Defense expenses, which was requested by Casey's lawyer after she was declared indigent and unable to pay.
So all together, that makes $690,026.
Got to love our justice system, huh?!
