ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Florida judge has signed an order that could require Casey Anthony to serve a year of probation for fraudulent check writing.
An assistant in Judge Stan Strickland's office said the judge signed an amended court order Monday.
Anthony left prison last month after a jury acquitted her of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. She was convicted of lying to detectives but was released from jail because of time served. She then disappeared from public view.
Strickland sentenced Anthony in January 2010 to a year of probation for the fraudulent checks.
The state Department of Corrections interpreted Strickland's sentence so that Anthony could serve the probation while she was in jail awaiting her murder trial, but the judge says he intended the probation to be served after her release.
