How is it that you can be found not guilty yet get charged with these outrageous court costs and police investigation costs? Yet when lil homie gets convicted for shooting and killing someone over a $20 crack debt do they ever seek these costs?

Casey lied to police and because of those lies, resulted in a lengthy time consuming and expensive search for her daughter. Time wasted that could have been put to better use with other cases. She knew her daughter was already dead when that search was being conducted. Then there was the trial and lawyer fees, which she couldn't afford to pay. Some of her legal team also provided food, shelter and protection for a time. They probably didn't mind at first because they were happy as larks that the system worked to their advantage. A big win in a high profile case is something the dream team lawyer$ always hope for.
