Casey Anthony Prosecutor Lands Book Deal & Facebook Fans

Jeffrey Ashton, the attorney who prosecuted the Casey Anthony case, is writing a book about the trial called Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony. Ashton (pictured, via) will publish his book in November.

HarperCollins Publishers already has the book listed for pre-order on Barnes&Noble.com. Despite the fact that the retailer doesn’t even have a cover of the book listed, let alone any content, the book already have 14 five-star reviews.

Anthony, the young Florida mother accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, was acquitted in July. The author already has an official Facebook page with more than 9,300 followers and a furious debate in the comments section.

From Ashton’s title, we can assume that the book will question her innocence.

Perez Hilton has more about the book: “This will preempt the Keith Ablow novel Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony, which will also be released before the end of 2011.”
