Casey Anthony's Legal Team

We're Taking on the Judge

She Should NOT Be On Probation

8/15/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony Appeal
Casey Anthony's legal team tells TMZ they will fight the judge who just rejected their claim that Casey served her probation for check fraud while she sat in jail during her murder trial ... and if they lose Casey will have to return to Florida in 11 days.

Anthony was sentenced to 1 year's probation for her 2010 check fraud conviction.  The judge who sentenced her said in court the time Casey spent in jail would not count toward completing probation, but the order the judge signed mistakenly allowed Casey's probation to run concurrently with her time in the pokey.

A judge ruled on Friday that the judge who sentenced Casey clearly made an innocent mistake, and it wouldn't make sense to allow Casey to get credit for the time she was in jail.  After all, the point of probation is to test how a person behaves when they are in the real world, not while they're locked up with few opportunities to misbehave.

But now her lawyers tell TMZ they will appeal Friday's ruling.  If they win, it would mean Casey would get a huge break -- her probation would already be completed -- because of a technical error. 

Casey's lawyers say if they lose their appeal ... they want her to serve her probation in a state other than Florida.

Is 50 enough for you nancy Grace Lovers? Of the first 135 appeals where Belvin Perry was the judge, 50 demonstrate errors in his–ahem–judgement. There’s lots more. And I’m not assuming that Judge Perry intended his latest order to satisfy the public. He states that directly in the text of the order itself. I’m not sure you guys know the meaning of psychological projection based on your CA hate post but it would do you some good to learn. While looking it up you should also check out “witch hunt” “moral panic” “mass hysteria” and “lynching.”

JP still looking for votes rather than honest justice. Casey was found not guilty of murder and has served her probation due to the Judge Strickland failing to notice that his order was not written the way he wanted............thems the breaks .....he should have read more carefully before signing an order. At this point she has served her probation and it is over.

Baez is going for an emergency appeal probally looking for a stay for Casey during the appeal process. That means she would not have to show up on the 26th until the appeal is ruled on which could take weeks, months or years. The appeal process is very slow. OR if a stay is NOT granted she would have to show up on the 26th serve her supervised probation during the appeal process which a ruling could happen during her probation or after it's over. This ruling will be very big on future cases.

I don't wish her harm but I do want to see her be treated like every other offender. Not just get away with it.... AND I think her lawyerS.. yes all of them should be treated like she is because they are the one that is babying her... In my mind the more they help her , they are helping her to kill her child Caylee over and over and over and over and over. I think everyone should go after the lawyers to... they are unprofession and unethical IMO and should be barred. They know they are harboring a baby killer.

Isn't arrest and charges of murder a violation of probation. How the f*ck can sitting in prison on an unrelated charge meet probation requirements?
