Casey Anthony Jail Video Released

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo playerA grainy video -- shot inside a Florida jail in 2008 -- shows Casey Anthony's reaction when she was told her daughter's remains were found.

In the video, Anthony is in the waiting room of the jail's medical facility, when she looks up at a TV screen and sees a news report on the discovery of Caylee's remains.  Casey appears to double over with her hands in her lap and then appears to breathe heavily.

The footage had been under lock and key since 2009 for fear it might influence the jury.

(CNN) -- Video showing Casey Anthony rocking and hunched over upon hearing remains had been found in the search for her 2-year-old daughter was released Friday, after a Florida judge overturned a decision to seal the footage because it was considered inflammatory.
The security video -- which has no audio and was taken in a "waiting area of the medical facility" at a county jail -- was taken in December 2008 after remains were discovered in woods near her grandparent's Orlando home. By that point, the girl hadn't been seen in public for six months and investigators had spent five months looking for her.
Just over a week later, on December 19, 2008, authorities determined the remains were those of young Caylee.
In the footage, Casey Anthony is seen rocking back and forth in a chair. After a few minutes, law enforcement officers talk to Anthony and take her to another room.
Orange County Superior Court Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. issued his ruling on Friday afternoon, two days after a hearing in response to Orlando TV station WKMG's July motion to unseal the footage.
In his decision, Perry recalled how then Judge Stan Strickland had sealed the video in May 2009, saying that while he was "loathe to shield any public record" he believed that it was inflammatory.
Anthony's defense team, in a motion filed in 2009, cited testimony from two Orange County Sheriff's Office employees stating they felt it was "cruel" that the then-suspect was "distressed" in the waiting room for 30 to 45 minutes on the day news broke that the remains were found.
The television was on in the room, broadcasting news about the discovery, according to court testimony.
At the time, Anthony was awaiting trial on murder charges and others related to the death of her young daughter. A jury acquitted her on that and other charges in July, though she was convicted on four lesser charges related to misleading authorities in the case.
"The reason for sealing (the video) -- Ms. Anthony's right to a fair trial -- is no longer applicable because the trial has been completed and she has been acquitted of all charges other than lying to law enforcement officers," wrote Perry, before ordering the state attorney's office to release the video.
During Wednesday's hearing, defense attorney Jose Baez argued that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act prevented the tape from being released in public because Casey received medical attention while she was in the waiting room.
The news station argued that regulations pertain to medical data and not treatment, and insisted that the tape is part of the public record.
In his ruling, Perry found that "the jail video does not constitute a medical record or other form of health care data relating to the evaluation or treatment of Ms. Anthony's physical or mental health condition."
The judge also added that "there is no reasonable expectation of privacy in jail."
The ruling is the latest setback for Anthony and her defense team. Last week, Perry ordered her to pay $217,000 to authorities for costs related to investigating Caylee's disappearance.
Officials had argued that if it were not for the 25-year-old Orlando woman's lies, investigators would not have had to spend the time and money to find her daughter's body.
Anthony's attorneys have claimed that Caylee died accidentally when she drowned in the family's' pool.

The shocking jailhouse video of Casey Anthony learning that remains were found in the woods near her home while she was incarcerated was released on Friday and RadarOnline.com has the footage.
In the video, filmed in December 2008, Casey is escorted into a room and sits in a chair with her hands restrained, one hand between her legs while she watches a television off camera. 
35 seconds into the video Casey covers her face with her left hand and doubles over bending forward, no longer looking at the television. She continues to stay hunched over with her hair hanging in front of her face.  At 1:25 into the tape Casey wipes her eyes and clenches her fists.
Watch the video on the Orlando Sentinel's website.
The news report that aired in 2008 only identified that remains had been found but they did not announce that the remains were those of Casey’s missing daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.  According to HLN Casey requested to see her lawyer as she watched the video. 
According to Casey’s attorney’s opening statements at the trial, she already knew her daughter was dead at the time she watched this video, since her defense maintain that Caylee drowned in the family pool on June 16 of that year.

Judge Belvin Perry ordered the unsealing of the video and explain in his court order:  “The jail video…is a public record subject to disclosure.  The reason for sealing – Ms. Anthony’s right to a fair trial – is no longer acceptable.”
According to the Orlando Sentinel, on the day Caylee’s remains were found Casey was moved to a medical facility where the TV showed the report at the request of the Sheriff’s department.

“An Orange County Corrections lieutenant told detectives Anthony breathed rapidly, her hands became sweaty and red blotches appeared on her neck. She asked for a sedative,” the newspaper reports.  “Those reactions are not apparent on the video released today, possibly because of the poor quality.”
Anthony’s lawyer Jose Baez argued in front of Judge Perry that Casey was taken in front of the monitor showing the discovery of the remains to “perhaps elicit an incriminating statement, which did not happen.”
