A DePaul University professor, lawyer and author knows Casey Anthony and was on the defense team in the early days of the case.

Andrea Lyon appeared on ABC 7 News Thursday morning. She was brought in by lead defense attorney Jose Baez after the state of Florida decided to seek the death penalty against Anthony. Lyon is an expert in death penalty cases. She says despite what many people think about Casey Anthony, the truth did come out in the trial.

Lyon adds she's glad the jury paid attention to the evidence and wasn't swayed by what she calls 'mob mentality.'
