Six more days for Casey Anthony


Share post:

Orlando (CNN) — Casey Anthony only has to stay in jail six more days to fulfill the sentence a judge gave her today on convictions for lying to authorities.
Judge Belvin Perry sentenced Anthony to four years in jail, one year for each of her four convictions of lying to police,  but with credit for the approximately three years already served and good behaviour, her release date was set for next Wednesday, July 13, a court spokeswoman said today.
Denying a defense motion to reduce the four counts to a single conviction, Perry gave Anthony the maximum jail time he could by ruling that the four years be served consecutively.
He also fined her $1,000 for each count. Court papers show she is also ordered to pay court costs and fees totalling just over $600.




“I don’t know how free she’s going to be (but) she’s going to be out a cage,” defense attorney Cheney Mason told InSession soon after sentencing. “I doubt there’s any place in this country that she could walk the streets freely.”
