Casey Anthony's safety post-release worries lawyer

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- One of Casey Anthony's defense lawyers says he's worried about her safety once she's released from jail after being acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.
Cheney Mason told the NBC's "Today" show Monday he doesn't know where Anthony will go when she's freed Sunday from a Florida jail. He said she would need time and counseling to re-enter society after being jailed for nearly three years before and during her high-profile trial. She was convicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement.
Mason said Anthony's relations with her parents were "pretty well burned" after the trial, where her defense team contended she was sexually abused by her father. Her father, George Anthony, denied the claims.
Jail records show Casey Anthony refused a visit Friday from her mother, Cindy Anthony.

    They should be worried, they know she got away with murdering her sweet little girl. Citizens are not happy about that. I hope someone does to her what she did to her daughter.

    Well I don't know where she will stay. Why don't her defense lawyers let her stay with them and babysit their children.She would be around them and she'd be safe, but I don't know how safe their kids would be around her.

    Jose Baez will probably take her to his house for a few days. If i were him i would have her scrubbing the toilets since she has no money to pay for his services..
