Chief Judge Belvin Perry ordered the release of the video of Casey Anthony’s reaction to seeing a video announcement of Caylee’s remains being found. Perry agreed with a local TV station that the once-secret recording is public record and the original reason for sealing it (concerns it would influence jurors in her murder trial ) is no longer a factor.
Anthony was acquitted in July of charges she killed her daughter Caylee Marie in 2008.
"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 Anthony's right to a fair trial — is no longer applicable…" Perry wrote in his order.
He also said there is no expectation of privacy in jail.
