The obsession with Casey Anthony’s whereabouts is about to end.
Acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, Anthony vanished into the night after her July 17 release from jail. As she spent the next two weeks in hiding, people speculated that she was everywhere from California to the Bahamas.
But thanks to a judge’s order, Anthony will return to Orlando as quickly as within the next three days. On Monday morning, Orange County Judge Stan Strickland signed amended court documents that will require Anthony to serve one year of supervised probation on her check fraud charges. “She should be reporting to probation in Orlando probably within 72 hours,” Strickland said.
Strickland sentenced Anthony last year on charges that she had stolen a friend’s checkbook and forged several checks. On Thursday, he said he intended for Anthony to go to supervised probation upon her release from jail. Upon Anthony’s release, the Department of Corrections officials misinterpreted Strickland’s order as meaning that Casey Anthony had served her probation while still in jail.
It is unclear where Anthony will stay when she returns to Orlando. Her attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
