Casey Anthony must serve 1 year probation, judge rules

A Florida judge ruled Friday that Casey Anthony must serve one year of supervised probation for a check-fraud conviction.

Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. said Anthony has to report no later than noon on August 26, but that she can report earlier.

Perry also ruled that the Florida Department of Corrections is authorized to keep her address confidential to safeguard her well-being.

Anthony was cleared earlier this year of murder charges related to the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

But she was convicted in January 2010 of felony check fraud charges, after she admitted she stole a checkbook from her friend Amy Huizenga and wrote five checks totaling $644.25.

Anthony's defense attorney, Lisabeth Fryer, argued that Anthony completed the probation while she was serving time in jail waiting for her trial on the murder charge.

Prosecutors disagreed.

    There's really not much she can do now to make an honest living, is there. My guess is she becomes a drug dealer (like OJ) or she sells herself on the street.

    Casey has done enough time... I think it's funny that everyone has concluded that she is guilty... Whe there was no evidence to support that end... Let rhe young women put her life back in order and move on... If I never hear her name again that will be fine.!!!!

      Thank you for your compassion. I agree, the woman has done enough time. I would say she also service her probation while in jail; however, life is not fare. I would appeal.

      In order to serve probation you are not to have contact with criminals, be employed, no drinking etc. While incarcerated she already broke probation because she was in contact with criminals and she was unemployed. So we will take your compassion and throw her in jail for a violation of probation.

      First, I believe the time she served was for lying to the police. Nothing more, nothing less. The one year probation was for check fraud of which she was found guilty. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. But in all fairness, her probation should be moved to another state not only for the safety of Miss Anthony, but for the safety of the people of Orlando.

      AND...Thank God, "WE THE PEOPLE" can bring about changes when UNJUSTICE IS SERVED! Thank God I was given common sense, a will and a voice that can help protect those unable to speak for themselves: CHILDREN, both living or killed by their mothers (or killed/abused in anyway, by anyone!)

      Again, when calling people idiots, it's very important to check your own level of intelligence, which you did not do, as is evidenced by YOUR idiotic post.

    A high Five for Judge Perry.
    Maybe he should arrange for Baez to be locked up for being dishonest.

    Do you mean *parole*?
    Generally, with surpervised probation, they are ordered to stay within state lines.
    That's why it's *supervised* probation.
