ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A Florida judge has signed an order that
could require Casey Anthony to serve a year of probation for
fraudulent check writing.
An assistant to Judge Stan Strickland said the judge amended the
order Monday. Anthony's lawyers are likely to challenge it.
Anthony left prison last month after a jury acquitted her of
murdering her 2-year-old daughter. She was convicted of lying to
detectives but released from jail because of time served. She has
disappeared from public view.
Strickland sentenced Anthony in January 2010 to probation for
the fraudulent checks.
The state Department of Corrections interpreted Strickland's
sentence such that Anthony could serve the probation while she was
in jail awaiting her murder trial, but the judge says he intended
the probation to be served after her release.
