Casey Anthony Juror: 'Sick to Our Stomachs' Over Not Guilty Verdict

Casey Anthony's defense team argued that Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool and that George Anthony, Casey Anthony's father, helped dispose of the body. In the trial's shocking opening statement, defense attorney Jose Baez said that Casey Anthony hid her daughter's death in the same way she hid what the defense claimed was years of sexual abuse by her father and brother.

Baez was not allowed to bring up the alleged abuse in closing arguments because Judge Belvin Perry said there was no proof any abuse occurred. Huekler said that the omission of abuse in closing arguments did not hurt the defense's case.

Lippman denied the abuse allegations again on "Good Morning America."

"My client, George Anthony and Lee Anthony, never molested her," Lippman said. "And George Anthony had nothing to do with moving the body. And the rest of the things the defense said about my clients in particular never happened."

"This case has destroyed everyone's reputation," Lippman said. "Even if it's baseless, there's people out there that are going to believe ... for their rest of their lives ... what the defense told them."

Casey Anthony will be sentenced Thursday morning for the four misdemeanors she was found guilty of committing.
