The not guilty verdict returned by the Casey Anthony trial was not unexpected Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Litigation Shareholder Stuart Slotnick told People magazine.

"There are gaps in the prosecution's theory, and the jury will notice them," he said before the case had been decided.

"Being a liar does not mean she's a murderer," Slotnick explained. "It means she's an unlikeable liar."
