Attorney: Casey Anthony will appeal probation order

Casey Anthony and her legal team will appeal the order that would force her back to Orlando to serve supervised probation, her attorney Jose Baez told CNN.

On Friday, Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. ruled that Casey Anthony must serve one year of supervised probation for a check-fraud conviction.  She is required to report no later than noon on August 26.

Perry also ruled the Department of Corrections can keep Anthony's address confidential to safeguard her well-being. Citing reports indicating Anthony is highly disliked by the public, the judge acknowledged that there "is a high probability that there are many that would like to ... physical(ly) harm" the defendant.

The probation order states that Anthony cannot leave "the county of (her) residence" - which has been Orange County - without her probation officer's approval.

      Only a sorry ass loser like whatshisname baez would even think to appeal, but then again, that's how morbid-ass, hell-bound, bottom dwelling scavengers thrive. And they flock together in the way that this murderer and her loser attorney do. Karma will get them... look at where OJ is now, and his two attorneys ended up gone from this earth into hell way too early in their miserable lives.

    Abused wives and children who are threatened get beaten and murdered in Florida all the time after restraining orders have been issued because the cops don't have the time, money or people to enforce them but this piece of garbage gets special attention because she's been threatened?

      Ironic isn't it. I think she needs to come back to Florida and face the music.

      as long as her pimp squad are putting her in the news then people will speak. but we all know they need to stir the pot to keep the potential to pimp her some money going, her only value to them is what she can make them. Sadly her real value was being the Mother of the child she threw away like garbage.

    Considering she got away with murder she should be lucky she only has a year of probation for a lesser crime. She is nobody special,she needs to face the public and deal with the punishment

    It's amazing the comments here by good "law abiding" people. Whether you agree/disagree with the decision, and let's face facts – 12 people, a jury of her peers, found he not guilty after hearing what the prosecution presented. It was not only unanimous, but they didn't take long to render the verdict. So many are quick to judge, actually heard very little of the whole trial. Guilty people do go free while many innocent are found guilty. If you wish bodily harm upon her for whatever your reason, you are no better then she is... Just a lot of hypocrites here...

      Casey Anthony has never voted in her life. At 25, sh'es no member of any party.
      Teaparty and all other taxpayers who actually work to pay her way should be outraged. Especially in Orange County.

    Btw, she's not getting special treatment. People appeal orders like this all the time. Also, probation can be served in another locale, happens all the time. Also, as noted by the judge, if someone wanted to fo her harm, why entice someone or make it easier. Why screw up their life for some vendetta that in the end solves nothing. People get a life, move on. To many other problems out there...

    The hunt for casey anthony continues. I beleave that ms.anthony killed casey, and that there is a 97% chance that she will still get the death penalty but not by court. How long do u think until justices is served?

      I have to disagree with u. This is just like the hunt for bin laden, but the only difference is that by the 25th of this month we will know were she is. U can bet tmz is watching the orlando airport and probation office right now as we speak

    Libsluvhitler- you're a moron! You suffer from a serifs case of CRI – cranial rectal insertion. Liberal or conservative has nothing to do with it. I doubt she's ever voted. And many conservatives are hypocrites like Michele Bachmann – very typical teapart terrorist. It seems to me the tactics used by teaparty is more to the liking of hitler.. Bit this is off topic..
