Casey Anthony returns to Florida to serve her probation for stealing checks. Now there’s back and forth on whether she should serve it at all.
Florida AG: Anthony shouldn’t skirt ‘supervised release’ from jail
Anthony had been convicted of felony check fraud for stealing a checkbook from a friend and writing five checks for $644.25. Orange County Circuit Judge Stan Strickland ordered her to serve the year of probation following her release in the charges involving her daughter, but a clerk misunderstood the judge and prepared an order that the judge later signed instructing that Anthony would serve the probation while in custody awaiting trial.

Apparently she is in an undisclosed region of Flroida, because she fears for her life.
Furthermore, the state argues that Anthony never completed requirements of her probation while behind bars.
“Legally, it is clear that a defendant cannot serve probation while incarcerated,” the state writes, citing a previous ruling that stated “the rehabilitative concept of probation … presupposes that the probationer is not in prison.”
So what’s the deal with her having to return to the state of her crime and serving her probationary period?
