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.

    Who continues to pay for all of these appeals? State of Florida? I would be even more furious if my tax money was paying for all the nonsense! Casey and her attorneys think she deserves to be free from prison and be treated as any other citizen? Then serve your probation like anyone else would have too. Should not even be an issue to waste more time and money! Just don't get it!

      I agree with you, Curtis. Casey needs to quit being a spoiled rotten, ungrateful witch & take responsibility for once in her life & just do the probation! I think her defense team, however, knows she will mess up because of her narcisistic & immature personality.

    Does Casey's defense team think that dodging her probation will make the public like her more or what? If they are sooooooo concerned about her safety & public hatred of her, then maybe they would be better to advise their client that instead of whining & just expecting to get out of any & all responsibilities...she may just need to swallow her pride & do the time! Take SOME responsibility, Casey, & maybe the public hatred will downgrade to dislike! Judge Perry gave the Probation Dept. permission to keep your location secret for your protection. But, what am I saying? I forgot we cannot expect you to do the "right" thing, now can we? People like you cannot be reasoned with logically.

      hey fool, who said she was trying to dodge probation. Her lawyers are trying to save her life because of idiots that want to her or kill her? Do you fit into this category? I sure hope not!!! This is over so let it go, she was found not guilty and that is all there is too that!!! Yes, Caylee is gone and I for one do not like that fact but there is nothing that can be done about it except if the authorities did there jobs and started to look at Mr. Innocent George Anthony. He is involved in this and probably is the one that had more to do with it than did Casey. Let her live her life and leave her alone. If she did indeed do this, GOD will take care of her when he feels fit.

    I support and totally agree with Judge Perry's ruling on the probation screw up. Casey did the four years of the sentencing for check fraud and now it is time to do the probation. In court in front of Casey Anthony and Baez the judge clearly stated that when she gets out of jail that she is to serve her probation so Baez pulled a con job and tried to get her to serve it while serving her jail time and Baez fully knew he was doing wrong by doing the probation his own way. Now is time to stop the foolishness and start following the law as it was put forward to all. Also I would like to say that Jane Velez Mitchell is really starting to tick me and alot of other people off by siding with Baez and making this into some sort of conspiracy of the judge trying to get even with Baez and Casey, that is total rubbish! I am now going to boycott her show and support others who are starting to do the same. I always thought she was unbias and liked to support the law but now I find she is the total opposite to all of it. Shame on Casey, Baez, Cheney and Jane! Casey did the crime and now it is time for her to put on her big girl panties and start acting like a law abiding citizen for once in her life like all the rest of the human beings on this planet!! The world does not revolve around Casey Anthony!
