Casey Anthony to Go Free in Six Days

Ad Feedback

Casey Anthony will be freed from jail next week after being acquitted of murder charges in the death of her daughter.

A Florida judge sentenced Anthony, 25, to four years in the Orange County jail -- one year each for the four counts of lying to police about her daughter's death.

But, considering how much time she's served since 2008 while awaiting trial, Anthony's jail sentence was amended, and she'll be released July 13.

Anthony was also fined a total of $4,000 for the misdemeanor charges. The sentence is the maximum Judge Belvin Perry could give under the jury's decision.

Perry agreed that Anthony's guilty verdicts represented "four separate and distinct lies" that led investigators on a months-long search for her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

He said police spent "a great deal of time, energy, and man power looking for the child."

A hearing is set for Aug. 25 to assess possibly collecting investigative costs. Anthony has 30 days to appeal the four misdemeanor counts.

As Anthony was sentenced, protestors continued to gather outside the courthouse. Inside the courtroom, she showed no reaction while Perry imposed the sentence. As she entered the courtroom, she appeared happy and relaxed.
