Casey Anthony, 25, who was found guilty of lying to police regarding the disappearance of her two-years-old daughter Caylee, is scheduled to be released from police custody on July 17. She was sentenced to jail by a Florida judge on Thursday.
Court officials had earlier announced that Anthony would be released from jail on July 13, as she has received some credit for the 1,043 days she had spent behind bars since her arrest. Later on, the officials recalculated her release date and declared that she will be freed on July 17. The officials said that Casey has received toughest possible punishment for providing wrong information to law enforcement during the investigation.
Court official also said that Anthony, 25, has also been fined $4,000-$1,000 for each of four counts and must pay $618 in other costs. Prosecutors also want Anthony to pay for the 2008 search for Caylee, and a hearing on that issue was set for August 25.
Meanwhile, during the hearing of the case, opponents of Anthony gathered in front of the court to express their anger. The case also drew attention of the media, ntalk-shows and daily television.
