Casey Anthony Ordered to Probation: Has the tide turned?Posted: August 12, 2011
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.
