Casey Anthony broke her silence, and she 'doesn't give a shit' about what people think

I don't give a shit about what anyone thinks of me. I never will. I'm OK with myself. I sleep pretty good at night.
Casey Anthony

Nearly six years after a trial that captured the nation's attention, Casey Anthony spoke to the press about her daughter's death.

And she wants everyone to know she doesn't care if she's hated.

Anthony revealed in interviews with The Associated Press that she is "still not even certain" about what happened to her daughter Caylee, who died in 2008. 

Anthony was accused of killing Caylee, but was ultimately acquitted of murder. 

Last week, her trial judge, Belvin Perry, said he believed Anthony killed Caylee accidentally by giving her "too much chloroform."

Anthony was convicted of lying to law enforcement. She told officers she worked at Universal Studios, had left Caylee with a babysitter and that Caylee had called her the day before she went missing, all of which were not true. But she shrugged off the charges in the interview.

"Cops lie to people every day," Anthony said. "I'm just one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied. My dad was a cop. You can read into that what you want to."

Anthony said the reason for her unpopularity was "what was in the media." Many observers questioned her defense that Caylee drowned accidentally, as there were no eyewitnesses to back her up.

While Anthony spoke to the AP on the record in five interviews, she later texted the reporter, asking the AP not to publish its story since she had violated a confidentiality agreement with her employer.  

Anthony met the reporter at a protest against President Trump in Palm Beach, Florida.

Anthony now lives in the South Florida home of Patrick McKenna, who was the lead investigator for O.J. Simpson during his murder trial. Anthony said she sees "a lot of parallels" between her case and Simpson's.
