Casey Anthony Ordered to Probation: Has the tide turned?

Has Casey Anthony’s “luck” run out? Has the tide turned? Judge Perry has weighed in. Casey is ordered to serve out her one year probation. It was, after all,  Judge Strickland’s expressed words that she serve probation “upon release”. Once again, the words do matter. And, new law may just have been set, “probation upon release” meaning just that. No credit for probation “served” while in jail on another case. I wonder, will she also be required to pay her outstanding fines and probation fees? Probation requires her to get a job, too. Where will she work? Will she be law-abiding?Well, Judge Perry will have an eye on her for the next year. Maybe, that will begin to restore some peoples “faith” in the justice system. And, maybe, just maybe, Casey’s therapy treatment will sort her out. But, with her many legal missteps prior to Caylee’s death, I wouldn’t hold my breath. Nor, would I bet against this order being appealed.

    The probation is a result of the state failing in the murder trial and making the entire state look like a fool. Casey wins again. Is that justice for Caylee? -Jane

    I’m not sure what you mean by “has the tide turned?”

    Do you mean that Casey is the tide and she will become and prove herself a better person?

    Do you mean that Casey will now have to answer for Caylee’s death?

    Do you mean that there is now to be some resolve over Caylee’s death?

    This probation has nothing to do with Caylee or improving Casey. I think it will just be another way to keep Casey’s life front and center in the news. Not that the judge means to use it for that purpose.

    She will be held accountable to the system for a year, and I don’t think it will be pleasant for her because she will continue to be hounded. Her lawyers, however, will probably make it fairly comfy. Perhaps it will be more of a punishment for the lawyers since they will have to put up with her.

    From what I read, Judge Perry’s report slapped Baez on the wrist for not informing the court of this clerical error (which Baez was aware of), stating that attorneys must maintain the integrity of the justice system. Would Casey’s attorneys really appeal this order to report for probation?? A mockery of the justice system, indeed…

    Twelve months probation for not reporting a drowning? Another win for Casey Anthony. What happened to justice for Caylee? -Jane
