ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Casey Anthony's attorneys say the Florida Attorney General's Office is wrong to conclude she needs to serve a probation sentence for check fraud.
Anthony's attorneys filed a reply Tuesday to an Attorney General's Office filing in appellate court that said she needs to start serving probation now that she is out of jail.
Anthony was acquitted last month of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in a case unrelated to the check fraud. Since her release from jail, she has kept a low profile and her exact whereabouts have been secret.
An Orlando judge earlier this month said Anthony must report to a probation office no later than noon Friday.
Her attorneys have filed an appeal, claiming she served the probation sentence in jail while awaiting her murder trial.
