Tallahassee, Florida- August 20, 2012

This week Casey Anthony's year long probation will end, but when she will be officially released is being kept secret.

Today leaders with the Florida Department of Corrections said they will not announce publicly the end of Casey Anthony's supervision because of security concerns.

The 26-year-old Anthony has received several death threats.

It will be one year this week since Anthony first reported to the Department of Corrections to serve a year of probation on a check fraud conviction. She has been serving the probation sentence at an undisclosed location in Florida.

The Orlando mother was acquitted last year of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, in a trial that captivated the nation. Anthony had been sentenced to four years in prison for lying to police, but was freed due to credit for time served and good behavior.

She had lied to police about knowing the whereabouts of her daughter. This past legislative session lawmakers here at the Capitol voted in a law unofficially called 'Caylee's Law'. The law now makes it a felony to for a parent or guardian to fail to report a missing child, in cases where the parent knew, or should have known that the child was possibly in danger.
