Appeals Court Rules On Casey Anthony Probation – Casey Anthony Extended Coverage News Story – WESH Orlando

In an order this month, Strickland clarified that Anthony must begin her probation now that she is out of jail. He then recused himself from the case and turned it over to Judge Belvin Perry, who presided over Anthony’s murder trial. Perry upheld Strickland’s order, and Anthony’s attorneys appealed last week to the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach.

“The petitioner and her attorney’s were well aware that her probation placement was not to begin until her release from confinement,” the appellate court said.

The Fifth District Court of Appeals disagreed with Anthony’s argument that enforcing the probation order would violate the constitutional prohibition on double jeopardy. Anthony maintains she already had completed the probation sentence in jail while she was awaiting trial on murder charges in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

The ruling upheld a lower court’s order requiring Anthony to report to a Florida probation office no later than noon Friday.

Speaking Sunday on Fox News’ “Geraldo at Large,” Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez, said Anthony was in Florida and would report to a probation office to start probation if the appeal failed.

“We are going to follow the law wherever the courts follow the law and I am certain she will do what’s asked of her if necessary and hopefully it won’t come to that,” Baez said.
