When asked about her biggest regret, Anthony responded, “Not being honest. I didn’t trust law enforcement because of my relationship with my father, who is ex-law enforcement, and so they didn’t trust me.”
“I was 22. I was scared and confused with life in general, not having a direction,” she said.
J. Cheney Mason, Anthony’s attorney, told Morgan that his client didn’t trust anyone when he met her. While he admitted the possibility she may be lying about her involvement in her child’s death, he said, after over 300 jury trials and decades of life experience, “Anything is possible, but if she is [lying], she’s probably the best, because I don’t think for a minute she’s ever tried to pull the wool over my eyes or anybody’s eyes.”
Anthony also responded to media and public misconceptions about her following the intense scrutiny of the investigation and trial. “It’s horrible. It looks absolutely horrible, and I’m ashamed in many ways of the person that I was,” she told Morgan by phone. “Even then, that wasn’t who I am.”
“I’ve never been a ‘party girl’ or much of a drinker and have probably only had a handful of beers since my probation,” she told him. She also said she had never done drugs “except for a little bit of marijuana in my early 20s.”
Mason said that his client is neither marketing nor selling anything, though he did leave the door open on the possibility of a future book. “Right now, we’re sitting back watching,” he said. “When the time comes, she will have her story.”
“I don’t give a **** about money,” she reportedly told Morgan. “I may have in the past, but I was a stupid kid. I’m 26 now and I’ve been through hell.”
“My life totally changed a year ago, but I’m dealing with it,” she added.
