CBS News correspondent Kelly Cobiella reports that attorneys for the defense and prosecution have just five days to find twelve jurors and eight alternates.

Can impartial jurors be found on a case that’s been thrust into national focus?

On “The Early Show” former Casey Anthony defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden said finding jurors is going to be “very, very difficult.”

“Anyone you talk to on the street has an opinion on this case,” she said. “And because it’s been saturated with news media, especially in this day and age of social media, Twitter, Facebook, etc. it’s going to be a very tough job.”

Kenney Baden, a longtime attorney of Anthony’s, left her defense team in October. She cited financial limitations in continuing to represent her. The New York-based attorney said she had incurred travel costs in Florida and elsewhere, but said, due to restrictions by the Justice Administration Commission, she could not be paid for these costs as an out-of-state attorney.
