Casey Anthony has been ordered to return to her hometown of Orlando, Florida to serve a one-year probation stemming from a check-fraud incident in 2008, but one place that Anthony will not be going is the home of her parents on Hopespring Drive.
According to the attorney of Cindy and George Anthony, Mark Lippman, not only will Anthony not be returning to her home where she lived prior to serving jail-time, but he claims that her parents do not currently know the whereabouts of their daughter.
“They are really trying to move forward. They have been through a lot, and they’re figuring out their next step,” Lippman said about his clients.
Lipmann was asked if Anthony’s parents would take a call from their daughter if she called them. “That depends on a lot of things,” he said in a response. “I don’t think they’d know what they’d do until it happened. And their answers would probably be different. Cindy might, but George might not.”
Although Anthony’s defense argued that it would be unsafe for Anthony to serve probation in Orlando where she remains overwhelmingly disliked, Judge Belvin Perry — who presided over Anthony’s murder trial — noted that although she would have to serve a year in Orlando, he wouldn’t release the address of where she decides to stay.
As part of the probation, she must allow her probation officer to visit her home or employment location on the fifth of every month, (2) she must not drink alcohol to the extent that “her normal faculties are impaired,” and (3) she must work a “lawful occupation and support any dependents to the best of [her] ability.”
In addition, she has to pay $20 plus a 4% surcharge every month toward the supervision, not change her residence, employment, nor leave the county without getting consent, not have possession of a weapon without consent, and not have possession of marijuana or other controlled substances.
In 2010, Anthony was convicted of stealing a friend’s checkbook and forging a few checks totaling up to $400 and then spending it to buy clothing and groceries. Anthony needs to report to the Department of Corrections on or before August 26.
