Casey Anthony Ordered to Return to Florida

Casey Anthony Ordered to Return to Florida

Casey Anthony, in hiding since her release from jail two weeks ago, has been ordered to return to Orlando and reveal herself.

A judge on Monday signed an order forcing Anthony to serve 12 months probation for writing fraudulent checks. She addressed the court as she pled guilty in 2010. 

"I'm sorry for what I did. I take complete and full responsibility for my action," said Anthony in court at the time.

The judge's order, obtained by INSIDE EDITION, says Casey Marie Anthony must report not later than the fifth day of each month. She may not leave the county without permission, and must find a lawful occupation. She will have to come out of hiding in the next 72 hours. Her attorneys are expected to challenge the order.

And Anthony's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, were spotted on vacation in the Bahamas. They were photographed smiling and playing with dolphins at luxurious Dolphin Cay.

Meanwhile, a published report says Anthony won't consider telling her story in a TV interview until after undergoing intensive treatment for a grab-bag of psychological disorders which could take several months.

Psychiatrist Dr. Gail Saltz told INSIDE EDITION, "Anybody who has made so many missteps in their life, and has at best, a totally chaotic family situation and no support system, could benefit from treatment."

A source on the defense team says even Anthony now realizes she has "obvious mental health issues."

Three years in solitary confinement and the trauma of the trial "messed with her head."

"Even for somebody who wants treatment, not eveybody is treatable," said Dr. Saltz.
