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.

Hey TMZ, Thanks for helping us in our quest to constantly monitor where Casey Anthoney is lurking. It seems we both have the same goal of keeping other media outlets informed of her whereabouts so that some lunatic will eventually bring home true justice. Thanks for your help! We couldn't do it without you..

Let it rest. I think the dad did it and most people believe her story. It's not uncommon to come from a dysfunctional family and have the parents behave as they have. I do think she suffers from dissociation which would explain her actions. Yet she lives in Florida, home of the see no evil, hear no evil, tell no evil. Most of the people hating her are worse parents than she. I believe her, move on.

TMZ needs some editing/proofreading help. Whoever is doing it now, doesn't know how to use commas.

Florida should not vote for Perry or Strickland again. These 2 judges are looking for fame not justice. Both judges knew there was not a shred of evidence of anything other than neglect............child likely drowned in pool when not being watched ......she should have been tried for accidental death due to negligence and she might have been convicted and would have served more than the inflated 4 years for lying to police. Florida overcharged and the psychological damge to the defendant caused by sitting on trial for DP was certainly cruel and unusual punishment...........she did not kill her daughter. Even child services said there was no suffication by anything and no bruised bones. Drowning in pool is the only logical conclusion. These prodecutors and Judge Perry (and Strickland) have cost Florida 1 million dollars while trying to put to death a girl they all knew did not kill her daughter by the means suggested in prosecutors case and in fact were looking for votes! Dis-barr prosectors for putting false computer searches for chloroform into testimony and making claims of a body in the trunk which they also had no human decomp evidence of and knew it.......they would have tested and found Caylee's DNA in the maggots if the body was there.......they did not test those magots for DNA because they knew she was not in the trunk. Florida needs to find honest judges to vote in!

Let her serve her probation in Texas, the hang-em high state. Bitch lucky she's not in prison for the rest of her life for murdering an innocent baby.

This is not Thirty Mile Zone news. She is not a celebrity and does not deserve the attention you are giving her. I want to read about celebrities on this site . . . not child killers.

Bo f-ing ho Casey. You're just mad that you aren't getting your million dollar payday that you were expecting when you got out of jail. For some reason you thought we all cared what you had to say...sorry honey we don't want to see your lying face. You could drop off the face of the earth and nobody would even notice. Hope you are having a good time banging your lawyer because he must be paying your bills. Don't know how you sleep at night. I feel for your parents, having an evil daughter like you must be the worst sentence a parent could ever have.

Me thinks either Jodi is Casey Anthony (the bitch), her lawyers (the liars) or just drinking the coolaide.

99% of America are praising Judge Perry because he is not letting that slut get off free.

Any moron knows you don't serve probation in jail. probation is for when you're released from prison and are re-introduced into society so they can keep an eye on you for a certain amount of time. So, how can you serve probation in jail?

this bitch thinks she's a superstar who should get special treatment, because "poor her, people hate her". Well guess what skank... there's not many places in this country where you're liked. That happens when you MURDER innocent babies.

The Judge did not make an error....it was a scrivener's error (clerical error). Casey's attorney's were well aware of the error & decided NOT to notify the court. Judge Perry asked the defense if they were aware of the error & admitted that they did. However they felt that it wasn't the defense's burden to notify the court about it. Judge Perry took up that issue in his order, stating that attorneys have "a duty of candor." Judge Perry's words were: "While ignorance of the contents of a court order is one thing, the failure to abide by that order and the failure to notify the court of a known scrivener's error in the order may be a violation of an attorney's duty of candor," Perry wrote. "To additionally seek to use a scrivener's error to achieve an end that was against the court's intent, especially where both parties had argued the issue of when probation should commence, strikes at the very foundation of our justice system. No attorney should conduct himself or herself in a way that impedes an order of the court. Our system of justice should never be in the position of rewarding someone who willfully hides the ball." Judge Perry is a fair man & his ruling should stand. Casey needs to go back to FL & do probation!!!

The mockery is that this judge took weeks to come up with some way to continue sticking his Fats Domino face back into the media. Enough already, let this broad disappear from the public view, along with Fats. Move on with your lives, people.

Check out all the angry female names, now before you comment realize this is what the do. Get fat, sit on the computer, and talk shiz on woman that are more attractive then themselves. Now click their names and see all the comment on, this is what we called jealously obsessed. It all roots from their guys lying to them about not wanting to bag this princess. Just today at work we asked who would bag her and it was unanimous, 100% all 23 guys said they would. Also all 23 said if they told their wives they would lose it.

These are the same dolts who calimed if tmz posted one more story they where leaving.

They are so right she Should NOT Be On Probation, she should be in jail instead. She's a baby killer, who taped her child mouth and killed her. She's a murderer
