“Casey Anthony must return to Orlando within two weeks to begin serving a year of probation for a check-fraud conviction, even though the Probation Department had said she already completed the requirement, a Florida judge ruled on Friday.
said Ms. Anthony’s earlier period of supervision by the Probation Department was not real probation since it was conducted while she was still in jail.
“To permit the defendant … to avoid serving probation now, would take a lawfully imposed sentence and make it a mockery of justice,” Perry wrote in his 13-page ruling.
Judge Perry gave Anthony until noon, Friday, August 26 to personally present herself to the Probation Department in downtown Orlando. Her one year of supervision begins the day she reports.
Anthony faces standard terms of probation. She must maintain a job and report to her probation officer at least once a month. In addition, she is barred from excessive use of alcohol. Her home may be searched upon request. Any illegal activity would violate her probation and could land her back in jail.”
Oh how I love it when some small amount of justice is served.
