Casey Anthony’s attorneys were expected Tuesday to challenge a judge’s ruling that will force her to return to Orlando, Fla., to face one year of supervised probation in a check fraud case. Attorney Cheney Mason will appear in court and ask to disqualify Orange County Circuit Judge Stan Strickland from the case. He will also request that the ruling — which was handed down Monday — be immediately set aside, WKMG-TV reported. Anthony admitted last year to stealing a friend’s checkbook and writing four checks in the summer of 2008 — the same period when her two-year-old daughter Caylee went missing.
On Monday, Strickland ordered Anthony, 25, to begin the probation and noted she will likely be required to return to the area to meet with her probation officer. Anthony’s whereabouts since her acquittal on murder charges last month remain unknown and have sparked an international media manhunt over the past few weeks. Despite being acquitted last month of first-degree murder and manslaughter, Anthony was convicted on four counts of lying to police and sentenced to four years in prison. Having been in jail since October 2008, however, she was released with credit for time served.
