Anthony must serve one year’s probation

Sat., Aug. 13, 2011, midnight

ORLANDO, Fla. – Casey Anthony has spent her first four weeks of freedom living in secrecy, but that obscurity is going to come to an end soon – and so are some of her liberties.

Orange-Osceola Chief Judge Belvin Perry ruled Friday that Anthony has until Aug. 26 to turn herself in to the Florida Department of Corrections, which will monitor her for one year while she serves probation.

There was confusion last month, when Anthony was released from the Orange County Jail, about whether she would have to serve probation resulting from check fraud convictions in 2010. The Department of Corrections allowed her to serve while in jail, but that was not what the judge who sentenced her had intended.

Anthony will have to provide her address to a probation officer, though Perry told the Department of Corrections it has discretion to keep Anthony’s location confidential.

As part of the sentence, she:

• Must work a lawful occupation and support any dependents to the best of her ability.

• Must not consume alcoholic beverages to the extent her normal faculties are impaired.

• Allow her probation officer to visit her home, employment location or elsewhere.

• Will not change her residence or employment or leave the county without getting consent from her probation officer.
