State of Florida v. Casey Marie Anthony

In October 2008, Casey Anthony was arrested and charged with the disappearance and murder of her two year old daughter, Caylee.  She was originally charged with giving false statements, child neglect, and obstruction of a criminal investigation – this was later expanded to include  first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to police. In December 2008, Caylee's skeletal remains were discovered.

After a long contentious trial, on July 5 2011, the jury found Anthony not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter, and aggravated child abuse, and guilty on four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.  Jurors cited lack of evidence directly linking Anthony to the murder.

On July 7, 2011 Anthony was sentenced to one year in jail and $1,000 in fines for each of the four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer, with the sentences to be served consecutively. Anthony received three years credit for time served plus additional credit for good behavior, resulting in her release date being set for July 13, 2011.

Questions: Emotions aside, do you believe the prosecution overcharged the case?  Why or why not? Was there enough evidence to convict Anthony as she was charged? Why or why not? What are you thoughts on the evidence presented by the defense?
