After being released from prison on July 17th, following her acquittal in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Casey Anthony has been ordered to return to Orlando and serve out a year of probation on check fraud charges.
Last year, Judge Stan Strickland of Orange County sentenced Anthony to one year of probation on charges that she had stolen a friend’s checkbook and forged several checks.
When she was released from jail last month, the Dept. of Corrections assumed Casey had served her probation while she was behind bars. However, on Thursday, Strickland said that he intended for Anthony to immediately report to supervised probation upon her release from jail.
According to reports, Casey must return to Orlando within 72 hours. When contacted, Casey’s attorney did not return requests for comment.
On July 5th, a jury acquitted Anthony of charges in her daughter Caylee’s death. Her whereabouts since her release from prison 12 days later have been unknown.
It has not been verified where in Orlando Casey will be located, for obvious reasons.
