  • REASONABLE DOUBT! Pure and simple REASONABLE DOUBT. The defense did a great job at poking holes in the prosecution's case and created REASONABLE DOUBT in the jury pool. That's all that takes!

  • The defense was able to create reasonable doubt. It's surprising that there wasn't even a manslaughter conviction.

  • I stand corrected... she was acquitted of all of the charges except for lying to the police.

  • Hot snot...she was not acquitted.
    Acquitted means you have no charges what so ever.

  • I think her whole family was involved in it. Someone is not talking. And her father was too weird.

  • vote me down all you want for my opinion. but really, how hard is it to put two and two together? if she's so innocent then why are there so many questions unanswered? why didn't she report her daughter missing for 31 days (and she didn't, her mother did)? why did she instead become the town slut and get a bella vita tattoo while her daughter was missing? why did she lie to police 4 times if her daughter was missing? why did her car smell like decomposition? that might not be hard evidence for the death penalty but it's enough to convict her of atleast neglect. if everyone else in the world knows it how is it that the jury doesnt?
