Caylee Anthony was reported missing to the Orange County Sherriff's office on July 15, 2008, by her grandmother, Cindy Anthony. During the same call, Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony, told the operator that her daughter had been missing for 31 days. Caylee's remains were found five months later.
Casey Anthony judge rejects a demand by prosecutors that more than $500,000 in investigative and prosecution costs be reimbursed. But he gives the sheriff's office a chance to revise its expenses.
Casey Anthony should have to pay more than $500,000 in prosecution costs, the state tells the judge, asserting that the case was 'put in motion' by her lies. Her lawyers decry 'sour grapes.'
Judge says Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of murder charges, must return to Florida to serve probation for check fraud and should not be allowed 'to take advantage of a scrivener's error.'
Will Casey Anthony's notoriety over the death of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, bring some measure of wealth and security, or will it, instead, condemn her to a different kind of prison?
Casey Anthony will stay in jail until July 13, serving her sentence for lying to police investigating the disappearance of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony. Jurors, meanwhile, begin to defend their verdict.
