Casey Anthony breaks silence in 'bizarre' interview with Associated Press

In an exclusive interview with the Associated Press, Casey Anthony claims she "didn't do what I was accused of" and that she still isn't certain to what happened.

Anthony, now 30, was acquitted of the first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter and child abuse of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee nearly nine years ago.

She said her daughter, who would be 12 now, "would be a total badass."

The interview with A.P. outside of a Palm Beach anti-Donald Trump rally was Anthony's first time speaking to an outlet about her daughter's death since the media-frenzied trial ended about six years ago. 

"I'd like to think she'd be listening to classic rock, playing sports," she said.

Caylee went missing nine years ago, was last seen June 16, 2008 and was reported missing by Anthony's mother on July 15, 2008. The day after Caylee was reported missing, Anthony was arrested for child neglect. 

She told police that her daughter disappeared with a baby sitter, A.P. reports. Anthony later admitted about lying to police about her job, Caylee being with a baby sitter, and receiving a phone call from her daughter July 14, 2008. 

"Even if I would've told them everything that I told to the psychologist, I hate to say this but I firmly believe I would have been in the same place," she said. "Because cops believe other cops. Cops tend to victimize the victims. I understand now ... I see why I was treated the way I was even had I been completely truthful.

"Cops lie to people every day. I'm just one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied."

A.P. summarizes its talk with Anthony as being "at turns revealing, bizarre and often contradictory, and they ultimately raised more questions than answers about the case that has captivated the nation." 

Anthony was called "the most hated mom in America" by Nancy Grace in the aftermath, and was painted as a mother who couldn't account for her 2-year-old daughter for a month. Her defense called Caylee's death an accidental drowning without any eyewitness testimony, while saying Anthony's father, George Anthony, helped cover the drowning up and that he sexual abused his daughter. 

Anthony's father has denied both allegations. 

"I understand the reasons people feel about me," Anthony told A.P. in the exclusive interview. "I understand why people have the opinions that they do." 

Almost five months to the day she was reported missing by her grandmother, a utility worker found Caylee's body in a wooded area near her home.

Experts testified that decaying human remains were present in Anthony's trunk, but the government was unable to determine how Caylee died and that they failed to find Anthony's DNA on the tape used to suffocate her. 

The trial went a month and a half, and it took the jury a little more than 10 hours to find Anthony not guilty of the three aforementioned charges. 

While Anthony agreed to speak with A.P., she later texted the reporter not to run the story for a number of reasons including a bankruptcy case she's been stuck in since 2013. She told A.P  that she violated a confidentiality agreement with her employer while still under subpoena in the bankruptcy case while taking part in five on-the-record interviews. 

"I don't give a s--- about what anyone thinks about me, I never will," she said to close out the article. "I'm OK with myself, I sleep pretty good at night."
