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.

    I'm seeing a lot of Casey Anthony supporters coming out and speaking against the wave of Lynch mob ignorance that's still around.

    Absolutely the wrong call. The reason bad checks carry so much penalty is pressure from the banks. Next time you lose your mind, rob a store (but not at gunpoint). Probation is simply an extremely punitive fundraiser for the court/prison system. No help there. She has done her time. The defense and the jury were right. The prosecution and judges fouled up. Let THEM take responsibility. Let her heal, get some real help, get some education (preferably online), apologize to all, and–in a year or so–come back into the community with a purpose of working to improve the lives of the disadvantaged.

      Technically she hasnt that probation was to quash the other 6/7-counts of check fraud; she had 16 total and only did 412-days in jail for 6 of them

      Really????? Sorry, jannepeach, but you are confusing her crimes. The probation order for check fraud was given long before any acquittal of major charges in murder case. She needs to quit whining about serving probation the way it is designed to be served & not expect to get out of it just because she was acquitted of murder charges. You think she will do anything to improve her life? Why bother...she has the best of both worlds now!

    She will never own up to her responsibility if she gets away with it. I don't wish her harm but I truly beleive she needs to be treated just like everyone else who got convicted of check fraud. Maybe if everyone see her take responsibility for her action, the threat will stop. I think she killed her baby and got away with it. She does not need to get away with check fraud which she was found guilty. Her lawyers are making it worse for her by helping her not to take responsibility. In my mind they are harboring a baby killer and by helping her, they are killing Caylee over and over and over again. They are unprofessional and unethical and need to be reviewed by the ABA and disbarred!! Im surprise no one from the ABA has taken any action against them.

      I agree with you completely Shannon. This probation could possibly be the turning point for her if she fronts up and can show that she is trying to straighten out. At least that will go a small way in appeasing the trauma she has caused everyone. Getting off is going to intensify the hate already at boiling point. So please casey, come back and take responsibility.

      I agree with you Shannon, but her defense team is just doing their matter how repulsive it is to us. As long as they get paid, they don't care about ethics. Obviously, they had knowledge & didn't report to the court that probation began while she was in Orange Co. jail awaiting trial for murder. They have shown their legal expertise & just how cunning they can be. Unfortunately, they are also part of a long line of enablers of Casey. As long as she finds someone that will continue to enable her & allowed to be manipulated by her, then she will NEVER have to take any responsibility for anything. (Except maybe her hang-overs from living it up in a beautiful mansion & having fun in the sun!)

      Good point, Chris. Maybe we should all reject & refuse to service her lawyers. What about boooing them out of restaraunts like O.J.'s defense team members were. We could refuse to purchase any books or watch any movies they may put forth in the future. Only problem is...they are so cunning that defendants in similar positions want to have them as legal counsel because they can obviously get anyone acquitted!

    I could care less about her rights or her humanity, or her "getting help". She should have, and could have, gotten help before she decided to off her child. And only an idiot would believe the child drown in the pool, when the last words she said to her mother was that she'd "never see Caylee again". Paleeze. She's the new OJ, and she deserves to be. I don't care who's fault it is there wasn't a conviction, that does NOTHING to make her "innocent" so don't feed me that line of crap. Screw her getting help, screw her getting her rights to "start a new life" when she's a lying beyotch that never has owned up one single time to what ACTUALLY HAPPENED to her child. Her child had rights too and for alot of us, we could care less about her "day in court" or how convenient or not convenient it is for her on anything, anywhere, anytime. Don't send her this way, she's not welcome here.

      Scott, if that is the most intelligent thought you can come up with, then please don't type it here. Judge Perry or original judge on check fraud case didn't ask for these cases anymore than little Caylee or the rest of the Anthony family asked to become victims of Casey's actions/behaviors.

    She might just beat this check fraud punishment. And it will be cause of the public out rage from this whole thing. The last thing anyone in the justice system wants is to be the one to make the call that gets this girl killed or hurt. No matter how many people would like to see that happen, that wouldn't look good at all.

    Casey Anthony is no different than any other person who was convicted of a crime. She pled guilty to the check fraud, she should serve her probation like anyone else. If she doesn't like it...tough.

    Why should she get away with no probation unless it is now the normal standard to allow it and if you think she shouldn't serve her probation then I'm sure you think noone should either.

    The only thing that made Casey Anthony special was the child she threw away like garbage.

    SHE PLED GUILTY!!!!!!!! She begged Amy to forgive her. She is not so special that she deserves special treatment. She should do her parole in Orlando as ordered, not once but by 2 separate judges. She should not have lied so many times, maybe people wouldnot hate her so much. Someone takes a potshot at her, oh well. She needs to rememb er that she did the crime (check fraud) so she must do the time. I am curious as to how or why Baez thinksshe did her time already when she could not seek employment while she was behind bars?? That is only 1 condition of probation, not to mention no drinking oir drugs or partying or association with other known felons. I could go on, but shye needs to do her time in Orlando and take her chances no blows her head off.

    She should just quit delaying the inevitable, and just do her probation.

    She may have been found not guilty of murdering her child, but she needs to take her punishment for the check-fraud.

    Put your big-girl pants on, suck it up, and serve your probations, Casey.
