UPDATE - 7-12-2011

Orlando, FL (AP) - A spokeswoman for a prosecutor's office
says Casey Anthony's mother will not face perjury charges for
testimony during her daughter's murder trial.

State attorney's office spokeswoman Danielle Tavernier said
Tuesday that prosecutors have decided against charging Cindy
Anthony. She initially told police she did not search for
chloroform on the family computer, but at the trial she said she
did.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings says authorities are also
investigating a witness tampering allegation. He would not
elaborate.

He spoke to reporters during a wide-ranging news conference a
week after Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder in the death of
her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony.

Casey Anthony was found guilty of lying to law enforcement and
is to be released from jail Sunday.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - July 12, 2011 -

A sheriff in Florida says Casey Anthony's mother could face perjury charges for her testimony during her daughter's murder trial.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Tuesday there have been
discussions with prosecutors about filing perjury charges against
Cindy Anthony and a decision could come soon.

The sheriff spoke to reporters along with other officials who
investigated the disappearance and death of 2-year-old Caylee
Anthony in 2008.

A jury last week found 25-year-old Casey Anthony not guilty of
murder in her daughter's death. She was found guilty on four
charges of lying to law enforcement officers and is to be released
from the Orange County Jail on Sunday.
