Casey Anthony Free On Friday
Casey Anthony Off Probation On August 24
OKEECHOBEE, FL. -- Infamous, and much hated by many trial watchers, Casey Anthony is scheduled to be released from probation this Friday.
Convicted of check fraud, after stealing checks from a friend in 2010, Anthony is serving a one year probation somewhere in Florida. Keeping her location and other information private, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will not release any information about Anthony, reportedly due to threats against her as reported by her attorneys.
She was acquitted of the murder of her two-year old daughter last year. She alleges the child died in a back yard drowning accident, and her father was involved in hiding the body in a wooded area near the Anthony home.
Charles White, her current attorney says she has been at one location in Florida during the entire one-year probation time and indicates Anthony will not make her post-probation plans public.
The only word from Anthony during the past year was an interview with Piers Morgan and a leaked video. (Video: An October 2011 'video diary' by Casey Anthony from a secret Florida location)
Her former criminal attorney Jose Baez says Anthony didn't put the video online, and doesn't know how it got there, saying someone else must have posted it online. Baez is now promoting his book about the Anthony trial, and is opening a Miami area office in addition to his Kissimmee office.
On the video, Anthony, with shorter blond hair, says she has been using Skype to talk with someone. Presumably anyone she might talk with over Skype could record the call and post it online.
From the video, it might be guessed she is living in a small mobile home or travel trailer, probably in a remote rural location to keep her whereabouts hidden. It appears she's not actually talking with anyone, but merely giving a four minute and 20 second commentary on her life since she left Orlando in August.
She said in the video she'll remain at her current location until at least the end of February, noting her birthday is in March.
