Casey Anthony has become so experienced with the legal system since her daughter disappeared in 2008 that she may be considering a job as a paralegal, her attorney said today.

 

Anthony, 26, has been unemployed for the past four years and recently filed bankruptcy. She's almost $800,000 in debt but has less than $1,100 worth of assets, according to her bankruptcy filing. When asked what she may be interested in doing, her attorney Charles Greene said she might want to be a paralegal.

 

"I truly believe that she has a lot of skills," Greene told ABCNews.com. "She's better than many paralegals I know. She could be a paralegal or something like that right away. She is very organized, a very intelligent, very computer savvy person, so I think her skills and her desire may lie somewhere in that field."

 

Greene said Anthony "believes strongly in our justice system" and constitutional rights.

 

"I think she may be the type that ends up trying to work within our system to make our system better rather than being a person who's trying to break it down," he said.

 

Anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter in 2011, but she was convicted on four counts of providing false information to law enforcement, stemming from her initial statements to detectives. Two of the lying convictions were overturned on Friday.

But Greene said that it will be a while before she can take any kind of job, saying that life will "never be normal" for the woman who still breaks down in tears at times.

 

"You don't go from the most hated woman in the world, according to some media outlets, to being a normal person or being able to live a normal life," Greene said. "I'm not saying she's not a normal person, but people do not perceive her as a normal person."

 

Greene said that Anthony still receives threats and lives in hiding, despite the fact that both her prison time and probation have both been served.

 

She is the target of a number of civil lawsuits, which also prevents her from moving, Greene said.

 

He will not comment on Anthony's whereabouts, but her last known location was in Florida and it is likely she is still in the area, due to her ongoing legal matters.

 

"We think that once the lawsuits are over she'll be able to go where we think she is going to ultimately end up and then start about the process of getting a job," he said. "She's going to be 27 in March. She's still a young person and she's basically in a virtual prison based on her inability to move. So she would like to get a job, I can assure you, but she can't work at McDonald's. People would be looking at her instead of at the menu."

 

The few glimpses of Anthony since her July 2011 release from jail have been a few leaked video diaries and some unconfirmed sightings and photos of her in Florida.

 

Greene is adamant that Anthony has a story to tell, but that telling it right now is "not even under consideration except to say no."

 

"There will be no tell-all book, there is no tell-all movie," he said. "Her ability to progress and to grow up and to even be at her normal age was thwarted by what's happened to her in the last few years and what we believe happened to her in her earlier life, but that's her story to tell one day."

 

"The events are very private and Miss Anthony is still yet to come to terms with them and they're still so emotional, so emotionally traumatic for her," he said. "There's just moments she breaks down and starts crying when she starts thinking about it. It's nothing she's going to talk about. She's a very private person and she won't let people see that side of her either. She'll put up a tough face."

Yes, this.

I was being facetious with my comment, but still...


Quoting skittlebeans88:

She knows how to work the system, maybe



Quoting lizzielouaf:

What does that have to do with her being a paralegal?



Quoting iSarah:

Well, she's an experienced liar and got away with murder. Might be a good career for her.

She was acquitted.  She should get to go on with her life.  She was tried and found not guilty.   She should have surgery done to change her appearance, change her name and go on.  If she wants to be a paralegal, then good for her.

Nothing but a snide comment by a person that can not accept that she was aquitted.  I hope she finds a place in society as she is a young woman with many more years to come.  Harboring hate is not constructive.  A jury decided her fate.  I accept that,  She needs to move on.
