Who Are The Jurors That Acquitted Casey Anthony?

Who are the jurors who decided the fate of Casey Anthony?

The seven women and five men range in age from 32 to 65. Six of them are parents.

Jury consultant Susan Constantine has watched them closely during the trial.

"They've come away from their home, their job, their family, their loved ones, their relationships to put everything on hold for this entire case," Constantine says of the twelve jurors.

Here's what we've learned about the jurors who returned with the verdict today after a little more than 10 hours of deliberations.

Juror #4 has been nicknamed "The Church Lady" and may have been the prosecution's biggest headache. She's a single woman in her late 40's who says she's deeply religious.

This is the juror that the prosecution on three different occasions tried to strike this juror," says Constantine.

Juror #5 is "The Mother." She's a 57-year-old retired nurse's aide and has three kids. She's reportedly the only juror with a criminal record, a DUI arrest from 1998. She frowned through much of the trial.

"The frown on her face, that's her norm, and so before we start reading body language we have to establish, what is her normal facial expression?" Constantine explains.

Juror #9 is "The Handyman." He's a 53-year-old male who does odd jobs and cares for a stroke patient.

"He's very fastidious, he's a loner, he tends to be more of an introvert," says Constantine

Juror #11 is "Johnny Depp." He's a 33-year-old hunky high school gym teacher who looks just like the actor.  

"Juror number eleven is a phys ed coach. He is also very verbal non-verbally. And what I mean by that is he's always leaning forward, he's always in an action stance," Constantine says.

Legal experts are weighing in on what may have gone on inside the jury room.  

On the Today show, Star Jones, herself a former prosecutor, predicted Casey Anthony would get little support from the female jurors with children of their own.

"Mothers are always putting themselves and their children in the place of the victim and the defendant," said Jones.

It turns out she, like a lot of other commentators, was wrong.

Court TV's Vinnie Politan told The Early Show how he was struck by the jury's reaction to Casey Anthony before court adjourned on the evening of Monday, July 4th.
"When the jury enters the courtroom, where are they looking? And these folks beelined right for the jury box, not making eye contact with the defendant, the defense team, or any of those lawyers, and from my experience that's a bad sign for the defense," Politan said.

But that body language also proved to be an incorrect forecast of the jury's verdict.
