Casey Anthony may return to Orlando; bills pile up for case costs

Casey Anthony had a few weeks out of the media spotlight, but a judge’s order may end her reprieve.

Anthony may be required to report to a probation officer in Orlando. She has been missing from public view since she was released from jail on July 17, after a jury found her not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.

An Orlando judge revised her probation order from an earlier conviction, in which Anthony was found guilty of writing a fraudulent check.

Anthony’s lawyers will likely fight the new probation order. One of her defense attorneys, Cheney Mason, told the Orlando station WKMG that they will file a motion to disqualify the judge from the case and that they fear for Anthony’s safety were she to return to Orlando.

The Associated Press reports that no final decisions have been made by the court as to how it will handle Anthony’s parole.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the costs of Anthony’s murder trial have now topped out around $822,470. Prosecutors will be suing Anthony for the cost of trying her case. They have filed a bill of $141,362.
