Casey Anthony Reports to Florida Probation Officer

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- Casey Anthony, the Florida woman acquitted of murdering daughter Caylee, reported to a probation officer in Florida Wednesday evening but her whereabouts are unknown.

It's unclear where in Florida and exactly what time the 25-year-old Anthony reported to the Florida Department of Corrections. An order requiring her to serve a year's probation for a previous check fraud conviction was upheld this week by a Florida court of appeals.

Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger has previously said that the agency will not disclose where Anthony will report to probation, as a safety precaution, ABC Affiliate WFTV reported.

Defense Attorney Jose Baez told Fox News that Anthony will serve probation "somewhere in the state of Florida" and will not have to work while on probation. Instead, she'll take classes online.

Since Anthony was released from the Orange County Jail on July 17, she's been the subject of death threats. Her only confirmed whereabouts since leaving jail have been Ohio and Florida.

Anthony was ordered earlier this month by Judge Belvin Perry to return to Florida by Aug. 26 to serve a year's probation stemming from a check fraud conviction. Before her first degree murder trial, Anthony pleaded guilty to stealing checks from best friend Amy Huizenga during the time that Caylee was missing.

An error was made on the written sentencing documents in that case, which allowed Anthony to serve her probation while in jail awaiting trial for murder. Judge Stan Strickland, who presided over the check fraud case, had intended for her to serve probation once she left jail.
