Anthony, 34, is known for the sensational 2011 murder trial in which she was found not guilty of the murder of her two-year-old daughter Caylee.

The New York Daily News reports that Anthony plans to open an IP company in Florida, where she filed paperwork in late 2020.

As a convicted felon, Anthony will not be able to obtain a private detective license herself.

The new business is registered at the West Palm Beach home of Patrick McKenna, who was lead investigator for Anthony’s defense team, according to the Orlando Sentinel; McKenna also worked for the defense during the OJ Simpson murder trial.

People magazine says Anthony intends to change the way people look at her; “She knows what it’s like to be accused of something she didn’t do,” a source told the magazine.

The defense advanced a story of accidental drowning to explain the child’s death, using incest intimations to cast Casey Anthony as something of a victim himself.

As Dr. Garavaglia said, “IIn this case, we have a child who is not reported missing. When the child is reported missing by the grandmother, there is no credible explanation for what happened to that child. The body has clearly, clearly been hidden. He was put in two plastic bags, then put in a canvas bag, then thrown behind a rotting log a few blocks from his house. …And then we have the duct tape that is ever present on the face.
