Casey Anthony Now Owes $217K for Caylee's Search

Orando FL, (AP) - September 23, 2011 --

A Florida judge has increased the reimbursement costs Casey Anthony must pay to investigators for searching for her missing 2-year-old daughter three years ago.

Judge Belvin Perry signed an order Friday adding another
$119,000 to the bill she must pay four law enforcement agencies in
central Florida. The new amount brings the total to more than
$217,000. That's still short of the $500,000 prosecutors were

The additional amount comes from the Orange County Sheriff's
Office providing the judge with more details about their costs.

Anthony was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her
daughter, Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four
misdemeanor counts of lying to authorities. She told officers a
baby sitter had kidnapped the child. Authorities later learned the
baby sitter never existed.


Casey Anthony Must Pay Almost $100K For Investigation

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - September 15, 2011 -

A Florida judge says that Casey Anthony must pay almost $100,000 in law enforcement costs for investigating the death of her 2-year-old daughter.

Judge Belvin Perry's ruling Thursday was well short of the more
than $500,000 that prosecutors and law enforcement agencies in
Orlando were seeking.

Anthony was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her
daughter, Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four counts
of lying to authorities. She told officers a baby sitter had the
child. Authorities later learned the baby sitter never existed, but
the investigation drained manpower.

Anthony has appealed her convictions.

    The funny part is that this will force her to do interviews she might otherwise not want to do, and she'll get paid way more than $200K for them, so in the end, the only person who will make out will be her...

    Good Luck collecting! If I were her, I would get a very slick lawyer an have all my future assets diverted offshore. This is a punitive measure of a broken legal system. Perhaps the prosecutors were overpaid for the job. No responsibility is ever taken by over zealous State Attorney's that make poor decisions on prosecutorial matters. If all legal matters were handled like personal injury, attorneys would probably drive cheaper cars, live in smaller homes, and take cheaper vacations. We pay them to break the system, and we pay them to fix it.
  • by where do they think she is going to get it. Location: fl on Sep 24, 2011 at 12:07 AM

    This is just an oppertunity for a new judge to get a little attention on a high profile case.Every arrest results in denying guilt,which is a lie. are they charged for the investigation?hell no. this areas law enforcement need to get back to work and solve some crimes.The news media needs to quit milking this case for lack of a worthy story.

    And she will never pay a dime of that money!! It will be the taxpayers in our state who will end up paying. She really needs to be confined to a "Mental Institution" for the rest of her life.

    Florida taxpayers will never see a cent of this money. Her slick lawyer will have her declared skitzo or bi-polar and get Anthony on all the free medicaid and housing programs out there. Meanwhile the judge, law enforcement investigators, prosecuting lawyers, and those stupid jurers, got paid by us FL taxpayers. Anthony's parents should pay us back from the money they got from interviewing with Dr. Phil. They were all in on covering up lillte Kalie's murder, blaming each other, which got them all off the hook. A child is dead and no one is held accountable. Even if she drowned in thier swimming pool, then she is burried in the woods not discovered for months. Where's the charge on mishanding a corpes? OUTRAGEOUS! I boycot watching Dr. Phil now for stooping so low by interviewing this scum.

    So, she admits she lied to the police and now is appealing the case. What an idiot, she needs to be placed in a mental facility for the rest of her life. She apparently does not have a grip on reality or is just stupid. Either way, confinement would be best of her safety and any future children she was planning on.
