Some people may have missed this yesterday, but by entering a guilty plea in her check fraud trial, accused murderer Casey Anthony is now a convicted felon.
Any thoughts on how this will impact her upcoming murder trial? Does it make a difference?
From ABC News:
The 23-year-old pleaded guilty Monday to 13 counts of check fraud. She was sentenced to time already served.
“I’m sorry for what I did,” Casey said. “I sincerely apologize to Amy. I wish I would have been a better friend.”
She stole hundreds of dollars from former friend Amy Huizenga. The crimes were committed around the same time that Casey’s daughter, Caylee Anthony was missing in the summer of 2008. The 2-year-old’s remains were found later that year.
During Monday’s hearing, Circuit Judge Stan Strickland found her guilty on six counts and withheld adjudication for the other seven counts.
