Casey Anthony

Sentenced to 4 Years --

BUT ...

7/7/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony just received 4 years in jail  for providing false information to a police officer ... but she's not going to be locked up for the next 4 years ... not even close.  She could actually become a free woman within about a month.

Casey Anthony Sentencing

Anthony escaped the death penalty when the jury found her not guilty of murder.

The defense argued that Casey's lying to cops was really just one continuous act -- not 4 separate ones ... and therefore Anthony should be sentenced to 1 year in jail -- not 4 years (one for each lie).

Judge Belvin Perry begged to differ, calling each untruth "separate and distinct lies."

But Anthony got credit for time already served -- she's been locked up for approximately 2 years 10 months.  The judge must still compute how much time she gets for good time credit.

The judge said he needs to do some math first ... but Anthony could get out late this month or next.

He also said that she may get out by the time they get done computing the numbers today. It could be that close

She told the police that she had"spoken" to her daughter on the phone- even though Cayley was already dead.

She told the police about a fictitious nanny who had taken Cayley.

She told the police she worked at Universal Studios and led them around the place until she admitted she had never worked there.

What a sick puppy she is.

Good for you, Judge Perry. It's little consolation, because the twit will be out soon, but at least she isn't walking out today. The interviews, jello shots, and hot body contests will have to wait a while! Still...a little girl is dead, and no one is in jail or prison for that. Hmmm.

I think the important thing right now is still to find the killers. Dunno how easy that's gonna be, but I think the money issue should be shelved till there's closure.

The judge might of had the option of sentencing her to "calendar" time. That would leave her in for the whole 4 years to the day. Not sure if FL law allows for it, but OK law does.

Nope, she ain't getting out today or any day this summer.

Legal experts are saying it will be February, 2012.

Let her rot in jail.

Murdering bitch!!! Hope she & her family of murderers get what's coming to them. Yeah. Not guilty. Baby Caylee just duck taped herself and buried herself. If it was an accident, why did they cover it up and not tell the police?!?! Tell me that jurors!!!!
