Casey Anthony Attorneys Concerned for Her Safety Upon Return to Orlando
Casey Anthony has one more day to appear in Orland to serve probation for writing bad checks, but her attorneys are concerned for her safety if she’s seen in public. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.
Surveillance video showing Casey Anthony writing bad checks at a Target store in Orlando in 2008 has come back to haunt her.
The checkbook she was using in the video was stolen from her friend, Amy Huizenga, who was a witness in the murder trial. Anthony used the check to buy a bra and a blue hoodie with the number 82 on it—the same hoodie she was wearing when she was arrested.
A judge has ordered Anthony to return to Orlando by Wednesday to serve a year's probation for writing the bad checks.
True Crime host Aphrodite Jones told INSIDE EDITION, "Lying, using your friend's money, playing all those games that she played have come back to haunt her."
Anthony's defense attorney, Cheney Mason, says it's just too dangerous for her to show her face in public.
"Our main concern is Casey's security, should she have to appear at probation offices, seek employment and do other things that may be required of probationers," Mason said in a statement.
Mason wants an emergency hearing to quash the order.
"Casey Anthony made her own bed and Casey Anthony is going to have to lie in it for the rest of her life. That girl will always be looking over her shoulder," said Jones.
Anthony was sentenced for the theft and fraud in 2010 and tearfully apologized.
"I'd like to sincerely apologize to Amy. I wish I'd been a better friend," she said.
There is bad blood between Judge Stan Strickland, who is ordering Anthony back to Orlando, and the defense team. Jose Baez allegedly called the judge, "a self-aggrandizing media hound."
As things stand right now, if Anthony ignores the judge's order, she could be arrested and sent back to jail.
