Jacksonville, FL —
What's in a name?
Well, if your name is "Jennifer Ford," it means quite a lot these days.
Last week, Jennifer Ford, a 32-year-old nursing student at St. Petersburg College, helped acquit Casey Anthony of killing her two-year-old daughter.
As a result, Jennifer Ford of Jacksonville is taking the heat.
"The lady said, 'How could you enter into that verdict?'" Ford told Channel 4. "I said, 'Ma'am, I'm not that Jennifer Ford.'"
Jennifer Ford of Jacksonville, who coincidentally is also 32 years old, says she's received several angry voicemails and posts on her Facebook page.
She says she can't wait for the story to go away.
"I don't have anything to do with what the other jurors decided to vote on. I just want to be left alone and, hopefully, get this resolved," she says.
The two Jennifer Fords look nothing like.
Our Jennifer Ford is black; Jennifer Ford the juror is white.
For the record, Jacksonville's Jennifer Ford tells Channel 4 based on the evidence, she would have voted to convict Casey Anthony of murder.
