Casey Anthony Breaks Silence Nine Years After Her Daughter's Death: 'I Sleep Pretty Good At Night'

| Filed under: Legal MattersControversy

Casey Anthony speaks out!

For the first time, Casey Anthony has decided to publicly break her silence.

As you know, the 30-year-old was accused of killing her daughter Caylee with prosecutors alleging she murdered the toddler and hid her body in the woods. Her defense claimed Caylee drowned in the family's pool.

In 2011, she was acquitted of murder and child abuse in court.

But in her interview with the Associated Press, Casey says she's still not sure about what happened to lead to the death of the two-year-old:

"I'm still not even certain as I stand here today about what happened."

This comes on the heels of the judge who presided over her trial stating Anthony could have killed her daughter by accident!

Six years since her acquittal though, she continued:

"Based off what was in the media I understand the reasons people feel about me. I understand why people have the opinions that they do… 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."

And speaking on the investigation, Anthony does admit to lying to police:

"Even if I would've told them everything that I told to the psychologist, I hate to say this but I firmly believe I would have been in the same place. Because cops believe other cops. Cops tend to victimize the victims. I understand now … I see why I was treated the way I was even had I been completely truthful. Cops lie to people every day. I'm just one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied. My dad was a cop, you can read into that what you want to."

Wow.

While she maintains she isn't sure about what happened to her daughter, it also sounds like she isn't so sure about the drowning defense used in court:

"Everyone has their theories, I don't know. As I stand here today I can't tell you one way or another. The last time I saw my daughter I believed she was alive and was going to be OK, and that's what was told to me."

So interesting!

Now, she lives in Patrick McKenna's home, the lead investigator from her defense team. Anthony works for him, helping to do some investigative work, which seems to go over well with her as she one day wants to be a private investigator:

"I love the fact that I have a unique perspective and I get a chance to do for other people what so many others have done for me."

She also shared she can "empathize" with O.J. Simpson's "situation," so there's that.

In the end, Casey isn't worried about the public's perception of her:

"I don't give a shit about what anyone thinks about me, I never will. I'm OK with myself, I sleep pretty good at night."

The AP reporter states Casey tried to stop the story from being run, with her claiming:

"During the course of my bankruptcy, the rights to my story were purchased by a third party company for $25k to protect my interests. Without written authorization from the controlling members of this company, I am prohibited from speaking publicly about my case at any time."

There's so much to take in!

What do U think of her interview??
