Now that the Casey Anthony murder trial is winding down, what may become of Tot Mom Anthony? First of all, Tot mom must be worried as the trial is wrapping up. Many things will change if she is in fact found guilty of any of the charges. For one, her days of hanging out with her lawyers in street clothes will be gone and so will ALL of the attention. Well not quite. After all she will still have her celebrity status in State Prison, and I am sure the fan mail will keep coming. And, so will all of the cash from people who do not even know her. All of this on top if the endless request for media interviews that may actually be granted. Remember, this is a State Prison case, not a Federal Prison case. The Feds have no patience for prison interviews.
What else will change for tot mom? For one, she will enter State Prison and will no longer be housed on county jails. There is a bright side to that. She will actually have a permanent home! She also will have outside Yard privileges. Tot mom looks like she could use a little of the Florida sun. On the darker side, if Anthony is convicted and receives the death penalty, she will be one of only 4 women currently on Death Row in Florida. So, Tot mom may actually get the fame and attention she has always desired.
Here is the big question: if convicted, will Anthony be better taken car of in a Maximum-security prison or on Death Row? The jury is out on this, but death row inmates do have less social time and must be segregated from the general population. Lifers who are in the maximum-security units sometimes have perks like school, bible study, yoga and other outside activities. It all depends on how the prison feels they need to handle the security of the inmate. With tot mom, security will be a tough task and the Warden and his staff will have to make sure that Anthony is not only safe but not a danger or distraction to the other women.
Lots to consider, lots to pay for by taxpayers and for what??? Let this be a cautionary tale to others. Even in desperate situations, there are ways to get out. Harming a child is NOT one of them.

The Arnold Schwarzenegger saga is proof that some people will push things to the limit and risk everything. What winds up happening is death, jail or SCANDAL. Sometimes all three. So what is it that drives otherwise successful people to the depth that Schwarzenegger has now sunk? One word- grandiosity. Next word- entitlement. Both words are part of the eight patterns of criminal thinking.
The current Schwarzenegger situation was predictable. Hello 1980’s Columbia Pictures scandal, steroids, years of womanizing, allegations of drug use, sexual harassment claims and of course political office. After all, it was at the end of his term that Arnold commuted the murder sentence of the son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez, a Schwarzenegger friend and political ally. At the time I posted a story about this under my equal justice category.
So what are we to think about the collateral damage and the consequences to everyone else? How sad for Maria and their children. It goes to show you that all is never what it appears. Ask any woman who has lived through an abusive relationship. We lie about it and cover it up. Even famous women and leaders like Maria Shriver.
Now we are left with a State that is less than bankrupt and a still out of control Arnold. While I believe that change is possible, it does take hard work. It also takes admitting there are problems and not just because you want better press. I am sorry Arnold but you will not be BAAAACK. But, in case you want to start working please visit me at www.incarcervention.com. Just like with Blago, I won’t hold my breath.
What else can I say about the media blitz of the past few weeks regarding Sheen? It is enough already. This is media at it’s worst. How sad that Sheen and numerous media outlets have sunk so low as to air the police removing Sheen’s children. Really??
For anybody who has been through family court, custody battles and such- there are no winners. For Sheen and his maybe ex wife, there is no sure thing here. A court does not have to give children to either if they are not fit. In this case, there will be a psychological evaluation and more.
My motto is change is possible. This is true, but as I always say, it takes work. This insider hopes that the media and the Sheen’s get the help they need NOW.
