A publicist for an unidentified juror in the Casey Anthony murder trial has sent a press release to media outlets soliciting interviews on a pay to play basis. It appears the strategy has paid off, no pun intended, because there are reports that he has already received multiple offers. The highest bids are in the “mid-5 figure” range.
From a moral standpoint, profiting from interviews regarding the Casey Anthony case is murky at best. But according to his publicist, Rick French, “He will not entertain any offers that don't include compensation for a myriad of reasons.”
It's clear that Casey Anthony will get her pay day when she walks out a free woman. There are no legal limitations on Anthony profiting on the details of her case, cashing in on deals for interviews, books and movies. As a result of her acquittal, so-called Son of Sam laws — laws implemented to keep criminals from earning money from their crimes — do not apply.
The publicist has been very clear, the juror just wants to get paid too.
