Casey Anthony Verdict Draws Ire of Larchmont Moms

The Casey Anthony verdict Thursday morning had Larchmont residents talking, including a group of mothers with new borns.

"I don't feel good about it," said Jenny George, a Larchmont resident. "I feel like there was something shady going on. If she tried to cover it up, that's just pathetic."

George, along with seven other mothers and their young children, rested in front of Starbucks after attending baby boot camp, a postnatal fitness group that meets in Memorial Park on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

George's friend, Eileen Duff, was concerned that Anthony may get rich from all the publicity surrounding the trial, which concluded Thursday morning.

The 25-year-old was aquited Monday of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter charges. Thursday morning, she was convicted on four counts of lying to police, each consisting of one-year jail sentences and $1,000 fines. But, factoring in jail-time spent and good behavior, Anthony may be released sometime this summer, becuase she has already served 30 months.

"It's a disgrace that she got off," Duff said.

Dana Columbus, a White Plains resident sitting outside Red Mango, also thought Anthony was guilty, based on the media's portrayal of the story. But, she stopped short of making a determination without all of the facts.

"With all of the media stories, I though she was guilty," Columbus said. "If it really wasn't her, I wonder who did kill her daughter?"
