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.

    She needs to hit the pole ASAP – she can't just chloroform those court fees and bury them in a swamp!

    We apparently need your freak show to distract us from our own sorry reality. You helped us forget, at least momentarily, about the other monsters lurking amongst us. And your attorneys have captured the very essence of stink.

    maybe in addition to the years probation she should do community service, such as, keeping the area where little Caylees' body was found as clean as a whistle with the ecception of the memorials that have been placed there; no matter the weather; it seems it didn't matter that Caylee had to endure more than Casey ever will.

    Casey will mess up, i'm sure she will violate her probation. A leopard can't change their spots. Remember: "The best predictor of future behavior,is past behavior." I give her 2 months and she'll be be back in jail.

    I heard other day that a survey now ranks Casey Anthony as the most hated person in America beating out Obama and Lebron James. LOL. Funny how James has managed to stay on list for so long.

    it's hard to feel sorry for her- however i think the state should show some restraint, adn stand down. The populations confidence in the states judgement to behave, with restraint and wisedom instead of a scorned loser, extracting retribution (which is all that this is)- is most important. Excess of law enforcement and justice system are just a symptom of the problem of a governement to big, and having too much power.
