Casey Anthony is back in Florida, according to her lawyer, José Baez.

Baez spoke on Fox News' Geraldo at Large show on Sunday and said his client was in the state to appeal a probation ruling.

Anthony was sentenced to a year of probation in January of 2010 when she pleaded guilty to check fraud. Circuit Judge Stan Strickland said at the time that she would have to serve probation after her release, but the order did not go through, the Associated Press reported.

Defense attorneys thought Anthony's time in jail counted toward her probation but that turned out to not be the case.

Strickland has turned the case over to Judge Belvin Perry, who presided over Anthony's murder trial.

We are going to follow the law wherever the courts follow the law, and I am certain she will do what's asked of her if necessary -- and hopefully it won't come to that, Baez said.

Anthony has until noon on Friday to report for probation, the AP reported.
