Casey Anthony Enjoyed Being in Jail, Her Lawyer Writes

"I apologized to her for not getting there sooner," he wrote. "I asked if she was okay and she said, 'I'll be all right.' Caylee was dead, and she was in mourning, and it was one of those moments where you just don't know what to say."

Baez told her what he knew from police and an officer handed her a sedative pill with some water. Baez told her he wanted to stay with her, but that she would need him more outside than by her side.

"'I understand,' Casey said. 'I hope this pill will make me sleep.' She began to weep," he wrote.

In the book, Baez mentions multiple times that Anthony was "almost ecstatic" to be in jail, which baffled him for a long time.

"Unlike the rest of my clients, Casey enjoyed [emphasis his] being in jail. When I came to see her, she was always upbeat, never depressed," Baez wrote. "She would come in feeling chipper, as though she was at a picnic rather than a jail. This, as much as anything else, really struck me as being odd. Only later would it turn out to make perfect sense."

Baez later wrote that Anthony was happy in jail because "she had structure and she was safe" there, as opposed to her home, where he claimed that Anthony lived in fear of her father. During the trial, Anthony and Baez accused Anthony's father George Anthony of sexually molesting Anthony when she was a child. George Anthony denied the accusations.

Anthony has been in hiding since she was acquitted last summer. She is on probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction, but the court ordered her location to be kept secret because of death threats she has received. Her probation ends Aug. 21, 2012.
