ORLANDO, Fla. -- Authorities in Florida say Casey Anthony will be freed July 17, not Wednesday as previously announced, as a result of a recalculation of the time she has served.

Orange County corrections spokesman Allen Moore announced the new release date in a press release Thursday night. He said it was based on a "detailed recalculation" following a judge's sentencing of Anthony for lying to authorities about the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

The 25-year-old Anthony was acquitted by a jury Tuesday of killing her daughter. Judge Belvin Perry on Thursday gave her the maximum sentence of four years for four convictions of lying to authorities.

He denied a defense request to combine the misdemeanor counts, which could have made her eligible for immediate release.
