Daniela Catrocho spoke with the Orlando Sentinel for the article, "A Decade After Casey Anthony Verdict, Caylee's Law Rarely Used By Central Florida Police." The article discusses Caylee's Law, which was passed by Florida lawmakers after Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in 2011. The law makes it a felony to report false information about a missing child during an investigation.
Daniela Catrocho examined Caylee's Law for the Seton Hall Legislative Journal in 2015, where she said media coverage of the case prompted state legislatures around the United States to develop laws she described as an emotionally driven response to public outrage. Catrocho argued the law violated a parental guardian's Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and risked criminalizing a traumatized parent's reaction to losing a child.
