The nation was stunned Tuesday when Anthony was acquitted of first degree murder, manslaughter, and child abuse.

However, she was convicted of four misdemeanor counts of lying to police officers. Each count carries a maximum term of one year, but because Anthony has served nearly three years behind bars while waiting to stand trial, she could walk free Thursday because of credit for time served.

As has previously reported, Anthony was charged in connection with the death of her two-year-old Caylee, who was reported missing in the summer of 2008; her body was found six months later  -- in December of 2008 – dumped in a wooded area not far from the home of Casey’s parents, George and Cindy Anthony, with whom Casey lived with.
