To earn my financial fortune, I toiled hard for many years in numerous high-profile professions--including as a professional athlete, a movie star, and as a TV sports analyst. By contrast, Casey Anthony positioned herself for instant riches by murdering her little girl and then tossing the child's rotting corpse into a swamp. As the years pass, I'll remain hopeful of the fact that many people will always ask me about how I felt, my reaction the moment that I learned of Casey Anthony's "not-guilty" verdict from Orlando, Florida, on July 5, 2011. These words should help put my initial thoughts into focus: Shocked. Repulsed. Horrified. Disappointed. And, yes, I was actually worried that our nation's criminal justice system had somehow failed us. This marked a sharp contrast to my reaction the moment that the California jury rendered a "not-guilty" verdict at the end of my 1995 first-degree murder trial. That time, I truly and honestly thought, "our court system worked the way it was supposed to, because as an innocent man I'm about to go free."
