Casey Anthony's Probation Nears End
Anthony's 2011 acquittal from the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee sparked national outrage. Her decision to wait over a month before reporting her daughter as missing, as well as inconsistencies with her story, caused immediate public suspicion. Caylee Anthony's body was later found near her home in December 2008.
Anthony was instead convicted of lying to police and sentenced to four years in jail. The decision spawned death threats for Anthony, with a poll declaring her the most hated person in America.
The LA Times reported that when, exactly, Anthony's probation ends is being withheld for fear of her safety. The start of the probation period is not known either, as the information had been "purged" and blocked from release.
Anthony's attorney, Charles Greene, indicated the probation period will end Friday, allowing Anthony to leave the state of Florida without permission and put a stop to unannounced visits by state officials.
"As of Friday, Aug. 24 at 12 a.m., nobody will be able to tell her where to be," said Greene in an interview with ABC. "Even though she's been out of jail for the last year, she's essentially still been in prison by the requirement that she remains in one location."
