Casey Anthony, the young mother accused and subsequently acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter using duct tape and chloroform, must serve a one-year probation for check-fraud and will report to the Department of Corrections no later than Aug. 26, Chief Judge Belvin Perry ruled Friday.
Perry said that Anthony's address will not be released due to safety concerns.
Judge Stan Strickland said that he wanted Anthony to serve probation after she got out of jail and his original order was amended.
Anthony's defense team told Judge Perry last week that Anthony already served her probation and that she should not have to serve it again.
Anthony, 25, was convicted in 2010 on charges of check fraud and related charges, to which she pleaded guilty. The woman said that she stole a checkbook from her friend Amy Huizenga and that she wrote five checks. The Department of Corrections began timing Anthony's probation while she served time at the Orange County Jail awaiting trial. Her probation ended Jan. 24.
Anthony's defense team said that the small child drowned in the family's swimming pool, prompting a cover-up while prosecutors said that Anthony drugged and killed her in order to party like it's 1999.
Deleted internet searches were discovered on Anthony's personal computer for the terms "how to make chloroform," "neck-breaking," and "self-defense." Anthony also acquired a new tattoo with the words for "beautiful life" in Italian and entered herself into a "hot body" after the child became "missing."
