Filled with explosive new information, this is the
definitive inside story of the case that captivated the
nation and the verdict that no one saw comingIt was the
trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all.
On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial
arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from
one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd
been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial
only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent?
What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really
looked like?In "Imperfect Justice," prosecutor Jeff Ashton,
one of the principal players in the case's drama, sheds
light on those questions and much more, telling the
behind-the-scenes story of the investigation, the trial, and
the now-infamous verdict. Providing an inside account of the
case, Ashton, a career prosecutor for the state of Florida,
goes where the press and pundits have only speculated,
detailing what really happened during the investigation,
showing how the prosecution built their case, and explaining
how a woman so shrouded in suspicion was proclaimed
innocent.Moving beyond the simple explanations, Ashton
offers an in-depth look at the complex figure of Casey
Anthony, a woman whose lies he spent three years trying to
understand. And yet this focus on Casey came with its own
risks; here he details how this widespread fixation on
Casey--both in the media and in the trial--may have
undermined the case itself. As everyone got caught up in the
quest to understand the supposed villain, somehow the
victim, Caylee, was all but forgotten--not just to the
public, but more important, to the jury.Complete with
never-before-revealed information about the case and the
accused, Ashton examines what the prosecution got right,
what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced
of Casey Anthony's guilt.
