Casey Anthony must pay nearly $100,000 for investigation

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A Florida judge says that Casey Anthony
must pay almost $100,000 in law enforcement costs for investigating
the death of her 2-year-old daughter.
Judge Belvin Perry's ruling Thursday was well short of the more
than $500,000 that prosecutors and law enforcement agencies in
Orlando were seeking.
Anthony was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her
daughter, Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four counts
of lying to authorities. She told officers a baby sitter had the
child. Authorities later learned the baby sitter never existed, but
the investigation drained manpower.
Anthony has appealed her convictions.
