Oh, really? Saying the prosecution and public were into a "kill the witch" mode in the Casey Anthony trial? That was excessive?
Prosecutors in the Casey Anthony trial repeatedly asserted that the defendant searched for “chloroform” 84 times, but in reality she only searched for the word once, according to a software designer who testified at the trial.
The New York Times reports that the designer, John Bradley, came to that conclusion in June after redesigning the software used to tally Anthony’s computer searches. He says he immediately contacted police to alert them of the error, but the prosecution made no mention of the revised conclusion during the trial.
“I gave the police everything they needed to present a new report,” Bradley said. “I did the work myself and copied out the entire database in a spreadsheet to make sure there was no issue of accessibility to the data.”
Of course, Ms Grace, a former prosecutor, knew the likelihood of Ms Anthony filing charges for slander was infinitesimally small -- about the same size of -- or so it appears to me -- Ms Grace's conscience or sense of decency.
