Jurors who found Casey Anthony not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter are asking for the media to respect their privacy.

They don’t want to make any comments on the case, the press was told.

The group of seven women and five men were brought in from the Tampa Bay area and sequestered for the entire trial that started in mid-May.

They reached their verdict after fewer than 11 hours. Anthony was found not guilty Tuesday. She wept as the judge read the verdict. She had been charged with first-degree murder, which could have resulted in the death penalty.

The jury found her guilty on four counts of lying to police about the circumstances surrounding the death of Caylee.
