Below is the State’s response to comments made by Mr. John Bradley, designer of the software
CacheBack, in today’s New York Times article.

Two software programs were used for conducting computer analysis of searches completed during the
Anthony trial. The results produced by CacheBack returned results of 84 visits. The second program, Net
Analysis, returned results of 1 visit.

After the results were mentioned in court on June 23rd, Mr. Bradley contacted the State the same day.
He consulted as to a potential rebuttal to the defense regarding the error in his program and
recommended using Net Analysis findings. All findings had previously been supplied to the defense in

On June 27th the discrepancy was discussed with Mr. Baez and both he & the prosecution agreed to use
the Net Analysis return of 1 site visit count as the most accurate information available at the time. If
additional information became available, the State agreed to disclose. Mr. Baez brought the discrepancy
forward in court testimony and again at closing with his court exhibit.

During jury deliberations Mr. Bradley admitted to sending additional report information to the wrong
email address but was able to deliver information to prosecutors on the evening of July 4th. On July 5th
prosecutors prepared a Notice of Supplemental Discovery for defense but it was never provided because
the jury had reached their verdict.

Mr. Bradley never told prosecutors that the searches or the dates and times of the searches were
inaccurate. The only inaccuracies discussed were the visit counts discrepancy and that each software
program (CacheBack & Net Analysis) revealed a different number of total records.
Again, all of this information was disclosed to the defense in a timely manner.

We are dismayed at the suggestion made by the defense that prosecutors would withhold exculpatory
material. Court records show that the defense was completely aware of the issues, utilizing these facts
at trial.

Our office has received numerous requests for clarification about testimony provided by John Bradley,
CEO of CacheBack.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office held a media conference on July 12, 2011, before the recent media
inquiries. During that conference, we acknowledged that our computer forensic team used two
software programs to conduct internet history searches and there were discrepancies in the results
produced by CacheBack developed by Mr. John Bradley.

Please see the attached statement from the State Attorney’s Office, Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida, for
additional information. We stand by the integrity of the investigation and our partnership with the State
