Cheney Mason, one of Casey’s attorneys who has maintained his relationship with her, spoke with CNN in 2014 about what Casey’s life if like nowadays. “She has to live constantly on guard. She can’t go out in public,” Mason said. He added on that Casey works inside the home as a housekeeper, clerk, secretary and “stuff like that.”

“I think Casey has a lot of world left to have to deal with. She hasn’t been freed from her incarceration yet ’cause she can’t go out. She can’t go to a beauty parlor, she can’t go shopping to a department store, she can’t go to a restaurant, she can’t even go to McDonald’s. She can’t do anything,” he said.

Mason described Anthony as “aloof” and “afraid of people”. He stated that when he’s invited her to certain social gatherings, she has done her best to back out of the spotlight and fly under the radar.
