11. Casey Anthony trial

The trial for the death of 2-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony began in May of 2011 with mother Casey Anthony facing charges of first-degree murder. Throughout the trial, Anthony maintained that the toddler's death was an accident, stating that Caylee had drowned in the family pool. A verdict of not guilty was delivered in July, acquitting Anthony of the first-degree murder charge and, instead, convicting her of misdemeanor counts of lying to police officers.
