The 30-year-old maintained her innocence to the Associated Press and said she “sleeps pretty good at night.”

“I’m still not even certain as I stand here today about what happened,” Anthony said. “Based off what was in the media, I understand the reasons people feel about me. I understand why people have the opinions that they do.”

During the investigation, Anthony lied to the police about working for Universal Studios and that she left her daughter with a babysitter the day she disappeared.

“Even if I would’ve told them everything that I told to the psychologist, I hate to say this but I firmly believe I would have been in the same place,” she said. “Because cops believe other cops. Cops tend to victimize the victims. I understand now … I see why I was treated the way I was even had I been completely truthful.”

“Cops lie to people every day. I’m just one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied.”

“Everyone has their theories, I don’t know. As I stand here today I can’t tell you one way or another. The last time I saw my daughter I believed she was alive and was going to be OK, and that’s what was told to me. ”

Anthony — who recently participated against Donald Trump during a rally in Palm Beach — now works for Patrick McKenna, a private investigator who was the lead investigator on her defense team.

“I love the fact that I have a unique perspective and I get a chance to do for other people what so many others have done for me,” she said.

“I don’t give a shit about what anyone thinks about me, I never will. I’m OK with myself, I sleep pretty good at night.”
