HLN is reporting this afternoon, that a three judge panel has upheld Judge Strickland’s early order and Judge Melvin Perry’s interpretation that Casey Anthony must serve a year of supervised probation in Orlando, Florida. She must report by Friday.
This is not what the Casey Anthony Defense team had argued and the Florida Attorney General had argued that she should serve the probation in the case going in front of the 5th District Court of Appeal.
It is not what the Defense team had expected, but it is what many legal experts had expected. Although many had speculated that the Defense might win on this point, it is not what the panel ordered.
Time will one tell what happens, but it is now clear, Casey Anthony will be coming back to Florida soon.
Casey Anthony’s white Pontiac Sunbird has been flattened according to a news report in CNN.com. The car was destroyed nearly 7 weeks after her acquittal. The Sunbird belonged to George & Cindy Anthony and was the focus of the murder trial of Casey Anthony in which the prosecution claimed she put her daughter’s body in to the trunk and left it for several days.
The stench of human decomposition was noted by Tow Truck Driver and by George Anthony when the car had been picked up after Casey abandoned it outside of a store in Florida.
The car is now flat and is gone from the Anthony’s lives and the site of anyone related to the case. With the trial and the smell, I doubt that the Anthony’s wanted anything else to do with the car. Just like their daughter who they have said is not to come back to their home according to their attorney.
The Defense claimed that the State of Florida used “junk science” when they were trying to prove that Caylee had been in the trunk. I know that DNA was once considered “junk science” as well, now it is freeing people from prison, because of its reliability. My thoughts are that some of the evidence had never been tested in a court of law, and even though there were good experts, the Jury didn’t believe it.
This happened when the first DNA evidence was introduced as well, it was difficult for a Jury to grasp the concept and now it is accepted and not argue able. This case will go down in history, but I do hope that some of the “junk science” is proven in other courts, because the smell and the hair found of little Caylee in the trunk had me convinced.
The evidence in the Casey Anthony Car is now gone, and it is flat in a junk yard, just like the prosecution’s case fell with the jury, flat. Many of us still want justice for Caylee, but we may never see that in this life. It is now in the hands of someone greater than any of us.

Justice is served Ms. Anthony, you will do your Probation just like any other Con!!!. Judge Perry has served you the order and you must report for your probation on August 26th in Florida. The Probation Department must keep up confidential records on her whereabouts, but no special treatment.
Judge Belvin Perry Jr. has won his place in the hearts of many Americans when he issued that order today. The most hated woman in America must serve probation for her check fraud case which she did against her best friend in 2008. Had her family pressed charges against her, it would have been for more money I’m sure, but no, Cindy continued to enable her bad behavior, not realizing it would cost her Caylee.
I’m thrilled that Judge Perry has stayed the course of what probation stands for which is have a convict monitored to make sure they can exist in normal society and not mess up. How many of us believe that Casey can not mess up??
I know that unless she gets treatment, she will be right back in jail for her lying and cheating behavior. I do not expect a liar to change her stripes, but maybe she will quite stealing from others.
Yes, Jose Baez was not innocent when he didn’t alert the court to the error and Judge Perry told him that he should he realize he did not honor the justice system. I don’t think Jose knows what that means, your honor.
It may not be justice for Caylee, but it will be some form of monitoring for Casey.
CNN is reporting the photos that appeared over a week ago online from TMZ of a woman appearing to be Casey Anthony Anthony in Ohio may actually be her. http://wp.me/s9sfD-11157 .
She has relatives in Ohio; she went up there to hide out. She will be moving because TMZ has found her.
Her attorneys will be back in court on Friday to fight the order to bring her back to Florida to serve a probation sentence upon her release.
Judge Perry was given this “hot potato” when the judge in the original check fraud case recused himself and stepped down. Judge Perry wanted more time to study this case. Most cases ask the person to serve probation after they get of jail to see if they can merge back into society and stay away from trouble. Maintain a job, support themselves and not do the same type of behavior that got them into trouble.
Serving probation in jail, is hardly testing them on any of the above elements. These are the problems that Judge Perry is trying to discover when he asked for more time and set another hearing for this Friday.
Casey Anthony ordered back to Florida by a judge to serve a year of probation based on her check fraud case that she plead guilty to against her friend Amy Huizenga. There may have been a Court Clerk mistake, or a judge order that wasn’t followed or Jose may have not entered the right document, but Jose thought that Casey’s year of probation was served while she was in jail.
The current judge on the case doesn’t read it that way, and ordered that she must be back in the state in 72 hours. Poor Casey no more fun in the sun where ever she is. I guess that Hustler photo shoot will have to wait, if she is considering it.
This means that she will have to work out whether she did serve the probation or if she didn’t. Of course as the costs continue to mount from the State of Florida on the search for her daughter, and from others, this will be good, that she has to return, they can serve her with the costs while she is back in the court room.
Good news for everyone trying to track her down. Line-up those warrants and stand in line, because when she shows up for court, hand them to her, and she is served!!!

Leonard Padilla is seeking $200,000 to pay him back for bond, expenses during the 2008 search for Caylee Anthony only he is claiming that both Casey Anthony and Jose Baez mislead him during the search and bond that he extended for Casey.
All I can say is Leonard Padilla is going to have to get in line, because Casey Anthony filed a statement in Florida saying she was penniless and left the jail with $500. to her name from her jail account. She is living somewhere in seclusion from the “kindness of volunteers” according to her attorneys.
“Not only did he mislead us, they conned us. And, he did a good job,” Padilla said to KCRA in Sacramento
Padilla said Anthony’s attorney accepted an offer by Padilla to fly to Florida and to search for Casey Anthony’s daughter in 2008. He contends that both Anthony and her attorney knew at that time that Caylee was dead.
“Jose Baez said during the trial’s opening statement and in his closing that they knew all along she was never lost,” said Padilla.

If you believe in signs from heaven, then you just may believe in some of the strange signs like lighting striking the tree close to where this precious child’s remains were found the day the verdict of not guilty for her mother, Casey Anthony was pronounced. It was like the heavens struck down and hit the tree to remind everyone that this case was about a little girl who died.
This weekend as Casey Anthony was preparing for her “Perp Walk” out of jail, a mother who prepared a sign of protest showed one of the HLN show commentators a poster she made. It had a picture of Caylee on it and across her face where the “duct tape” may have been placed were red marks as if irritated by tape. The mother who made the sign said she did not put any glue on that area of the poster behind Caylee’s picture. She felt it was a sign from God. This weekend was exactly 3 years from the day of Caylee’s last being seen alive.
Whether it was a sign or not, these occurences are very much remainders that this case is about a precious little girl, who may have more power than any of us realize. I was raised Catholic and I remember reading many of the stories about saints when I was a girl. Little Caylee may continue to show us these signs but if she starts healing people, then she could become a saint.
I know it appears out-there to many of my readers who may not believe in this sort of thing, but it may be something we should be watching for as this precious little girl’s spirit continues to shine into our world.
