Casey Anthony Will Get No Money From The Jeff Ashton Book Or Subsequent Movie
“I want to clarify a misconception about the book and the movie. Casey Anthony will not profit in any way from either period! Any photos used of her, and there are none in the movie to my knowledge are public and used regardless of her permission. I wouldn’t participate in any endeavor that benefitted that evil woman. Please spread this message. I don’t want the good folks working on the movie to be unfairly lumped in with those that are trying to trick the world into believing Casey’s latest lies.” — Jeff Ashton via The Official Jeffrey Ashton Page on Facebook
Each day people are posting and reminding others to boycott any program, book, movie, interview, or product that will benefit Casey Anthony. Rest assured, you can buy Jeff Ashton’s book and know that the profits are not going anywhere near Casey Anthony, her family, or her legal team.
Ashton’s book titled “Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony” went on sale November of last year. Ashton has traveled all over doing book signings and guest speaking spots. He is currently running to replace the State Attorney in the district where he prosecuted Casey Anthony. Lawson Lamar, the current State Attorney has been in his position since 1988, and Ashton thinks it is time to change that. This is a local political race that is being watched by every corner of the globe.
The movie that is planned based on the book is set to star Virginia Welch as Casey Anthony, Oscar Nunez as Jose Baez, Kevin Dunn as George Anthony, Marina Stephenson as Cindy Anthony, and Rob Lowe as Jeff Ashton. Ashton is not a part of the production of the movie.
Would you want to read Casey’s personal journal? Well you may get to. The rumors are that there is a publisher that wants to put her journal into book form and sell it. That particular book WOULD benefit Anthony financially. The film that would be based on the book, if it were to happen, would also benefit Anthony. But Ashton’s book and movie WILL NOT.
I have not had the opportunity to read Ashton’s book as of yet, but do have plans to do so in the future. If you haven’t read the book and are curious, Amazon gives the following description:
“Filled with explosive new information, this is the definitive inside story of the case that captivated the nation and the verdict that no one saw coming.
It was the trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She’d been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?
In Imperfect Justice, prosecutor Jeff Ashton, one of the principal players in the case’s drama, sheds light on those questions and much more, telling the behind-the-scenes story of the investigation, the trial, and the now-infamous verdict. Providing an inside account of the case, Ashton, a career prosecutor for the state of Florida, goes where the press and pundits have only speculated, detailing what really happened during the investigation, showing how the prosecution built their case, and explaining how a woman so shrouded in suspicion was proclaimed innocent.
Moving beyond the simple explanations, Ashton offers an in-depth look at the complex figure of Casey Anthony, a woman whose lies he spent three years trying to understand. And yet this focus on Casey came with its own risks; here he details how this widespread fixation on Casey—both in the media and in the trial—may have undermined the case itself. As everyone got caught up in the quest to understand the supposed villain, somehow the victim, Caylee, was all but forgotten—not just to the public, but more important, to the jury.
Complete with never-before-revealed information about the case and the accused, Ashton examines what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced of Casey Anthony’s guilt.” — Amazon.com
