(CNN) — Two of Casey Anthony’s convictions of providing “false information to a law enforcement officer during a missing person investigation” were
thrown out Friday, while an additional two convictions on the same counts were upheld by Florida’s 5th District Court of Appeal.
Casey Anthony’s lawyer Cheney Mason tells In Session correspondent Jean Casarez that when he called Anthony to tell her the ruling, Anthony
said, “We keep fighting.”
The next step in the process would be to appeal the remaining two convictions to the Florida Supreme Court.
In 2011, a jury found Anthony not guilty of first-degree murder and the other most serious charges against her in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter.
