Yes, I know we are sick of Casey Anthony, but how did her lawyer get paid?

I was kind of curious to how in the heck she pays her lawyer? I would imagine it would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend her. Anybody know?

  • HLN said that Casey sold some photos and whatnot to the media and used that to pay about half her attorney fees, and the public covered the rest.
