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.

I understand that 4 of 5 counties would agree with Perry and find that the oral order stands but the county that (Orlando) appeals court will find that the written order signed by the judge after his (oral order)stands. Perry will be reversed!............as he should be.

Mayu: 99% of Nancy Grace's cult followers perhaps believes as you do but most people in general when shown the facts, do not believe that this girl killed her daughter by any means other than no*****ching her well enough to prevent her from drowning in the backyard pool. Only weak minded folks can be sooooo misled by Nancy Grace. ALL EVIDENCE SHOWS that this child was not murdered.......child services specifically said that she was not sufficated and no bones were even bruised. The child drowned in the pool accidentally and all those pics of Casey and Caylee smiling should also tell you that this was a loving mother and not a murderer. Imagine the he$$ she went through grieving for her daughter while in jail in solitary for 3 years and all with the death penalty hanging over her head. Consider for one second that this child drowned accidentally and imagine what she went through. She has been punished more than enough for the lying to police bull, let her move forward with life!

I hope she stays here in Columbus and tries out for the cheerleading squad at OSU. The irony would be beautiful.

I can't believe people were saying the photo of Casey with the baseball cap on and wearing glasses ISN'T Casey. I'd recognize that little pixie nose of her's anywhere! Although I do wonder how her mellon's got so large. Perhaps a valve stem was put in each one and she uses a bicycle tire pump on them. Who knows!

This murderer needs to be reminded every second of her life about the daughter she killed. Being a social pariah is even worse than America's prison paradise.

Judge Perry said in his decision that Anthony and her defense were abundantly clear on Strickland's intentions and took advantage of a clerical error.

"It is very clear that the Defendant and her attorney knew she was to start her probation upon release from the Orange County Jail. Despite this fact, they took advantage of a scrivener's error which started the probation while she was being held in the jail pending trial," he wrote.

Perry lashes out in the order against defense attorney Jose Baez, who admitted last week he knew about the error but said he had no obligation to inform the court.

"An attorney has a duty of candor. Under this umbrella of an attorney's duty to the court, attorneys are primarily responsible for ensuring that orders of the court are followed. While ignorance 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 said.

Perry went on to say that the act "strikes at the very foundation of our justice system."

Bozo Baez will not win an appeal just cause a delay. Interesting how TMZ slants stories in favor of the criminals just to get quotes from the lying weasel lawyers.

And using fake Casey photos? The nose isn't even the same lol.

Sure doubt they will get an appeal. Think she should serve her probation in florida and just like anyone else. No special treatment since she was found not guilty of the murder of her child. We know she did it but at least her having to deal with the everyday life on the streets of orlando would be the right thing. I dont condone violence and dont wish anything bad to come her way as thats going to happen when she meets up with "GOD".
