June 12, 2012 - In an exclusive interview with CNN, Anthony tells host Piers Morgan that she didn't kill Caylee and says, "I've never been a party girl. I don't drink now. I've probably had a handful of beers since I've been on probation...The caricature of me that is out there, it couldn't be further from the truth."

January 25, 2013 - An appeals court throws out two of Anthony's convictions for providing false information to law enforcement. The same day as the ruling, Anthony files for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.
