Casey Anthony's attorneys will fight a judge's order that she must return to Orlando to serve a year's probation for check fraud, CNN reports.

Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry ruled Friday that Anthony, who has been in hiding since being acquitted in July of murder charges in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, must report to a state Department of Corrections facility in Orlando no later than noon on Aug. 26. She previously had been convicted of felony check fraud for stealing a friend's checkbook and writing five checks for $644.25.

CNN has the particulars here. The Criminal Report Daily has details of Perry's order.

The Los Angeles Times looks at whether Anthony is challenging the probation order out of fear for her life. A recent poll named her the most hated person in America.

Meanwhile,, citing anonymous sources in Los Angeles, reports that Anthony has signed a six-figure deal "to write a memoir with the help of a ghostwriter."

The Examiner writes (badly):

The book will highlight, life growing up in the Anthony family, becoming a teen mom, her relationship with Lee, which sources say was not your average brother,sister relationship. The source said the father of Caylee will finally be named, with attachements in the book to show proof, that the named father is indeed really the father. Asked if the father is alive, referring to claims that the father was killed in a car accident. The source said, "The father is very much alive, There are plenty of other things, other then who shot John, that she can write about, that holds a lot of interest to the general public".
