Names of Casey Anthony jurors to be released

October 25, 2011 - 2:30 PM

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The names of the jurors in the Casey Anthony trial are being made public for the first time since they acquitted the Florida mother on charges of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.

The "cooling off" period a Florida judge cited in delaying the release for three months ends Tuesday. Judge Belvin Perry said jurors had been threatened since the verdict in July and he wanted some time to pass before their names became public.

The jurors were selected from Pinellas County, along the Gulf Coast, because of concerns about pretrial publicity in Orlando where the trial was held.

Anthony currently is serving a year's probation at an undisclosed location in Florida for an unrelated check fraud case.
