Casey Anthony, paralegal? Despite the continuing outrage that the mother of Caylee Anthony remains free after her daughter’s death, the future for the much-maligned mom may include work in the legal field.
If you think about it, Casey Anthony as a paralegal makes sense — after all, much of her adult life has been spent in a courtroom or working on her case, and it stands to reason the Florida woman has picked up some measure of legal know-how along the way.
When Anthony recently declared bankruptcy, it appeared maybe a post-Caylee life was not in the cards for the mom, who was famously not convicted in her daughter’s murder. But Casey may be able to turn her experience into a living, lawyer Charles Greene says.
In a recent interview, Greene explained that Casey Anthony’s paralegal skills could enable her to carve out a living outside the public eye, and Greene praised the former defendant for her legal knowledge:
“I truly believe that she has a lot of skills … She’s better than many paralegals I know. She could be a paralegal or something like that right away.”
“She is very organized, a very intelligent, very computer savvy person, so I think her skills and her desire may lie somewhere in that field.”
The lawyer for Casey Anthony also says work as a paralegal would enable her to give back to the system that awarded her freedom — freedom most believe she did not deserve.
