Should Casey Anthony be allowed to sell her story?

Bids for Casey Anthony's Life Story Are Completely Unbelievable!

by Jeanne Sager

Casey AnthonyJust when you thought Casey Anthony had slithered back into the hole from whence she came, the mother of Caylee Anthony is back. And despite some sudden but very loud outrage from Judge Belvin Perry -- the man who presided over her murder trial two years ago -- this week over her walking around a free woman, we may not be getting rid of Casey any time soon.

It's looking more and more likely that "tot mom," as she was dubbed during her famous trial, could end up selling her story after all. But before Americans get themselves as worked up as Perry did on the Today show, where he admitted he was "shocked" by the "not guilty" verdict in the two-year-old trial, wait until you hear what she stands to gain for the delight of telling the world her side of the story.

Bupkus.

That's right, if a judge allows Casey to sell her story -- because that's still being weighed in bankruptcy court this month by federal Judge K. Rodney May -- she won't see a dime. The money would go back to her creditors, which is why May is involved in the first place. He has a month to decide whether a trustee in Casey Anthony's case can sell the commercial rights to her life story to try to offset her debts.

America, let's do this guy a favor and just tell him it's OK. We understand why he'd say yes. Casey owes about $792,000 to multiple creditors. People have fronted money, and they deserve to get it back.

At this point, no one is likely to hire Casey Anthony to do much of anything. I wouldn't even want her picking up dog poop in my backyard. So where else is the money going to come from? Her story is all she's got.

It also bears mentioning that the offers entertained so far are so low, it's embarrassing.

Lifetime may be already in talks to turn Jodi Arias' life into a TV movie, but there doesn't seem to be the same interest in Casey.

The talk of making Casey a millionaire is long gone. So far the high bidder is, cough, cough, around $12,000. Another offer came in for just $10,000. Clearly the folks interested are hedging their bets, worried that America will follow through on threats to boycott any story from Casey. There's little chance she'll make so much she'll pay off the creditors AND walk off with some cash.

So what is there to lose? She sells her story; some of her creditors get their money back ... and America boycotts the book (or movie or WHATEVER it is that comes of it). 

Do you think Casey should get the go-ahead to sell?

If the judge thought she was guilty he had the power to make a decision!

Isn't it illegal to sell anything that give profit to the criminal? Since she was convicted of a crime, not murder, she spent time in prison. I don't think she could.

Either way I would boycott it.

Me too. I had been in Orlando for a year and had a new baby when Caylee went missing. I have followed the story since the beginning.

Quoting imakehimscream:

No she shouldn't. I still think she killed her baby.

No. Unless she wants to explain what really happened I have no interest in listening to her bs lies.
