Casey Anthony Completes Her Probation

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images)(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- Casey Anthony has completed her one-year probation sentence for check fraud, leaving her free to go wherever she pleases.

Anthony's attorney Charles Greene told ABC News that Anthony was free as of midnight, but that she has many issues to face before she attempts to move forward with her life.

"She's lost her daughter, she's lost most or all of her family, she's lost her friends, she's reviled by a percentage of the population and that will probably never change," Greene said. "She will never be able to walk down the street with anonymity."

Anthony, 26, was acquitted last summer of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony.

After Anthony's acquittal, Florida Judge Belvin Perry ordered her to serve one year of probation for a 2010 check fraud conviction. Prior to her first degree murder trial, Anthony pleaded guilty to stealing checks from her best friend Amy Huizenga during the time that Caylee was missing.

Since then, Anthony has been serving her probation from an undisclosed Florida location. She has resurfaced a few times over the past year via a leaked video diary and a telephone conversation with CNN's Piers Morgan, but has otherwise succeeded in disappearing from the public eye.

Greene would not comment on any details of Anthony's whereabouts or her future plans.

Anthony has checked in with probation officers every month for the past year and her monthly reports have been public. Anthony's reports have consistently said that she is unemployed, has not been taking any classes and has not been drinking alcohol or taking drugs.

"It'd be hard to imagine that, at least in the very near future, she could ever have what many of us would consider a normal life," Greene said.

Casey Anthony's Family Computer Shows Suicide Searches: Lawyer

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- On the day 2-year-old Caylee Anthony disappeared, someone in her house used the computer to run suicide-related searches, on terms including "foolproof suffocation" and "venturing into the pro-suicide pit," according to Casey Anthony's defense attorney Jose Baez.

Baez described the "bombshell evidence" in his new book Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story.

One year ago, on July 5, 2011, Anthony was acquitted of charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter for the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony. She was convicted of lying to law enforcement.

In the book, Baez wrote that the suicide-related searches were done one hour after Casey Anthony's father George Anthony said that she had left the home. Casey Anthony's mother Cindy Anthony was not home at the time and her brother Lee Anthony no longer lived there.

Though Anthony home computer searches for "chloroform" were heavily scrutinized during the trial, Baez said the suicide-related searches one of his experts later discovered were never disclosed.

"I have a hard time believing that law enforcement wouldn't check the internet history of the day that the child went missing," Baez said Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America. "That would have been bombshell evidence in the trial if it had come out.

Baez concedes in the book that computer experts say it is very difficult to prove who was the person using a computer at any given time, but that one can speculate based on the type of searches made.

On the morning of June 16, 2008, computer records show that someone, presumably Casey Anthony, spent about two hours on Facebook, Myspace and "researching outfits worn by shot girls in clubs," Baez wrote. Anthony's boyfriend at the time was a club promoter and Anthony was helping him manage the shot girls, the women who walk around the club selling shots of liquor.

A few hours later, someone got on the computer and logged into an AOL Instant Messenger account. Baez said that George Anthony had an AIM account and that Casey Anthony did not.

"Then someone typed in 'foolproof suffocation.' It was misspelled, and George was a poor speller," Baez wrote. "Google automatically corrected the spelling, and the first link that was clicked was 'venturing into the pro-suicide pit.' It appeared that someone was thinking about killing himself."

At the time these searches were being made, phone records showed that Casey Anthony was on the phone with her friend Amy Huizenga, who did not recall anything strange about the phone call, according to Baez.

"By looking at the websites being researched, all concerned with suicide and death, it certainly appears that the one who felt the blame was a guilt-ridden Goeroge Anthony," Baez wrote in the book. "It had to have been George on the computer because he said Casey was gone, and he was the only one out there trying to kill himself."

George Anthony attempted suicide in January 2009. Police found him despondent and possibly under the influence of medication and alcohol in a Daytona Beach, Fla., hotel. Police also discovered a five-page suicide note in the hotel that Anthony had apparently written.

In the book, Baez also wrote that Casey Anthony has "serious mental health issues" and described her as someone "not playing with a full deck."

In early 2009, Baez wrote that Anthony finally told him her version of what happened the day Caylee died. She recounted waking up, Caylee being missing, searching for Caylee outside and finally seeing her father carrying Caylee's wet, lifeless body from the pool.

Anthony claimed that she had been sexually abused by her father and brother and told Baez that she feared that her father had tried to do something to Caylee and then tried to cover it up.

"The day that Casey actually told me what happened was long into the case. She was essentially the boy that cried wolf at this point in time in our case," Baez told GMA. "What I tried to do was disprove what she was telling me and I just, quite frankly, I couldn't."

Baez said he was able to corroborate everything that Casey Anthony told him, so he believed her for several reasons.

"One, some of the evidence that corroborates it and there's a handful of pieces of evidence that came forward that she had no idea existed, so I knew that that was important to corroborate," he told GMA. "And another thing was, I couldn't disprove it. This case was so heavily investigated, so thoroughly looked into when it came only to Casey so no stone was left unturned when I came to Casey."

On the anniversary of Anthony's acquittal, Baez described to GMA what he recalls from that day.

"I remember after the first not-guilty verdict I reached over and squeezed Casey's hand because it was a death penalty case and all I was concentrating on was saving her life," he said. "And after the second not-guilty verdict came, I squeezed her hand even tighter and then the third one...I think I may have cracked a bone at that point. I knew right then that my life was going to change and it certainly has."

Baez no longer represents Anthony who is currently on probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction.

"I have contact with her like I have with any other previous client," he told GMA. "But she is a previous client. I just certainly hope the she'll be able to go on with her life and make something of it.

Anthony has been in hiding since her acquittal and the court ordered her location to be kept secret because of death threats she has received. Her probation ends Aug. 21, 2012.

Florida Police Tortured Casey Anthony, Lawyer Says in New Book

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Casey Anthony's jailers took her in shackles to a room where she was to be surprised by news coverage when police discovered her daughter's decomposed body, a tactic that her lawyer claims in a new book was "torture."

Attorney Jose Baez writes that police hoped to get a revealing reaction, possibly a confession, out of Anthony by shocking her with the news story and refused to let her lawyer see Anthony while this was going on.

"They sent someone to Casey's cell," Baez writes in his upcoming book.  "They shackled her legs and hands in chains, marched her to the medical unit, sat her down where there were several correctional officers and a couple of nurses standing around watching her, and forced her to watch the breaking news that police had found Caylee's remains so they could record her reaction."

The grainy video shows Anthony sitting in a waiting room.  There is no audio, but after she appears to hear something -- reportedly the televised news that a child's body was found in a swampy area near the Anthony home -- she puts her hands and forearms across her stomach, and begins to slowly rock backwards and forwards.  Her breathing seems to quicken and her chest can be seen rising and falling.

The remains were not identified as Caylee's until more than a week later.  In September 2011, a Florida judge unsealed for public view the tape that had previously been sealed in order for Anthony to get a fair trial.

On July 5, 2011, Anthony was acquitted of charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter for the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony.  She was convicted of lying to law enforcement.

The circumstances surrounding the tape, which a Florida judge called "highly inflammatory," are detailed in Baez's book, Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, set to be released on July 3.

"As soon as the police got to the site where Caylee's remains lay, Commander Matt Irwin, the head of missing person's unit, came up with the bright idea of calling the jail and asking if there was a room where they could take Casey and videotape her reaction to their finding Caylee's remains," Baez wrote.

Irwin was told Anthony could be taken to the medical unit where there was a TV and a camera that could record her reaction, according to Baez who claims police were hoping that Anthony would "say something, maybe flip out and confess."

Baez said he had rushed to the jail to see his client in hopes of breaking the news to her.  But when he arrived, authorities would not let him through the gate.  He was told that Anthony was being taken to the medical unit and he would have to wait to see her.

Anthony was inside being shown news coverage of the discovery of Caylee's remains.

"Meanwhile, oblivious to what they were doing, I was outside trying to get in while they were torturing her," he wrote.  "Clearly this was a violation of her right to counsel and what two of the correctional officers would later testify to be cruel and unusual punishment."

"To this day it was one of the cruelest and most disgusting things I have ever seen the cops do," Baez wrote.

Authorities later said that they had taken Anthony to the medical unit out of concern for her health and well-being.  Nearly an hour after he arrived at the courthouse, Baez said he was taken to Anthony.

Anthony has been in hiding since she was acquitted last summer.  She is on probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction, but the court ordered her location to be kept secret because of death threats she has received.  Her probation ends on Aug. 21, 2012.

Casey Anthony's Great Escape Detailed in Lawyer's New Book

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- In the hours following Casey Anthony's frenzied release from jail, her defense team executed a movie-like getaway plan, complete with decoy vehicles, a helicopter chase and a stop at an all-night Steak 'n Shake for her first meal.

The July 17, 2011 scene was broadcast all over the country.  Anthony was scheduled to be released from jail at midnight and swarms of media and avid-trial watchers camped outside in the dark, harshly illuminated by TV lights.

What the public didn't see is what was going on inside the jail, now detailed in defense attorney Jose Baez's book, Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, set to be released on July 3.

"She was wearing a dark pink polo shirt with jeans and some funky tennis shoes that had two-colored laces," Baez wrote.  "'Hey,' I said.  'Hey,' Casey said.  Looking at her sneakers, I said, 'What the hell is that all about?'  'They don't exactly have a shopping mall here at the jail,' she said."

Ten days earlier, Anthony had been acquitted of charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter for the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony.  She was convicted, however, of lying to law enforcement.  Since she had credit for time served, the maximum sentence the judge could give her for the conviction was 10 days, which he did.

Baez and his team spent those 10 days crafting an escape plan for Anthony, a way to get her from the jail to the airport where a private plane would be waiting to whisk her away.

"There were too many crazies who were convinced she had killed Caylee while she danced the night away, and I feared for her safety," he wrote.  "In addition to avoiding an army of media, we knew we were going to also duck the surveillance of a half dozen helicopters."

The plan was to get Anthony into a car as quickly as possible before driving across the street to attorney Cheney Mason's building that had a multilevel garage.  There, they planned to have one car block the garage's entrance while a small fleet of cars waited inside.

Anthony and Baez would get into another car and all of the cars would leave the garage and head in different directions, leaving followers unsure of which vehicle Anthony was in.

"As soon as we walked out that door, I heard screams, the way teenagers screamed for Justin Bieber at one of his concerts," Baez wrote, describing the moment they exited the jail.  "I'm certain they were yelling 'Baby killer' and the like, but after going from total silence to the sound of insanity, neither one of us could make out a single word they were saying."

They got in the car and headed for the garage where they quickly switched vehicles, which was not as smooth as Baez had hoped.

"I opened the door, grabbed Casey's hand, pulled her out, and I was so hopped up with adrenalin, I forgot she was there and slammed the car door on her leg before she could even get out of the car," he wrote.

The vehicles took off from the garage and the plan worked, shedding all of their pursuers except for one helicopter.

A half-a-dozen helicopters over the airport prevented them from going there directly.  They went to a lake, parked in a wooded area and waited until the helicopter trailing them gave up and left.

With time to kill, the group went to an all-night Steak 'n Shake where Anthony had her "first meal of freedom" -- a cheeseburger, fries and chocolate milkshake.

Anthony and Baez eventually made it to the airport and took off for St. George Island, an island on the Florida panhandle near Panama City.  The defense team had rented a house on a secluded beach.

When the secret location was discovered by the press, Baez had Anthony moved immediately.

"I had one of my investigators drive Casey to New York," he wrote.  "While the entire national media was searching for her in Arizona and California, she was within walking distance of all of their offices."

Anthony has been in hiding since she was acquitted last summer.  She is on probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction, but the court ordered her location to be kept secret because of death threats she has received.  Her probation ends on Aug. 21, 2012.

Casey Anthony: 'I Didn't Kill My Daughter' 

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Casey Anthony, once described as the "most hated woman in America," spends her time watching old movies and reading the The Hunger Games, a trilogy about a game of killing children.

Anthony, 26, who was acquitted last summer of killing her daughter, Caylee, spoke to CNN's Piers Morgan on a phone call for about 10 minutes on Tuesday along with her lawyer, Cheney Mason.

Anthony told Morgan that she has "gone through hell," that she is not a "party girl," and that she was "ashamed in many ways of the person I was," according to Morgan.

She scoffed at reports that her weight has ballooned and that she wanted to move to Costa Rica.

"It's doubtful she weighs 120 pounds," her lawyer said.

But she also insisted to the talk show host, "Obviously, I didn't kill my daughter.  If anything in this world I was more proud of was my daughter.  She was my greatest accomplishment.  I didn't kill my girl."

When Morgan asked if Anthony would ever want to be a mother again, Mason said, "She probably would.  It would take a long time [though] for her to be accepted."

When asked if she was marketing her story, Morgan said Anthony told him, "I'm not making gazillions dollars [selling her story].  I don't give an [expletive] about money. ... I may have in the past. ... I was a stupid kid.  I am 26 now.  I have gone through hell."

Mason added, however, "We are sitting back watching. ...When the time comes she will have her story to tell."

Anthony has been in hiding since she was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.

"She's in a different prison," Mason said.  "She's in a home where she can't go outside. She can't be seen so she spends the day in the house, cooks, cleans, reads books, exercises, watches programs on TV, movies mostly."

When asked what she enjoys, Mason said, "She doesn't watch the news. She doesn't watch these so-called reality shows that are about as real as wrestling.  She's reading a trilogy of books called Hunger Games. ...She's very interested in photography, works out a lot, likes I Love Lucy, The Three Stooges, travel."

When Morgan mentioned that The Hunger Games was about killing children, Mason replied that he was aware it had Harry Potter type of popularity.

Anthony is on probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction, but the court ordered her location to be kept secret because of death threats she has received.

Since slipping into hiding, Anthony has surfaced only occasionally in photos or in an online video diary she kept that was leaked.  In the video diary, she talked about her new blond bob hair style, getting her nose pierced, and her new pet dog. Photos posted online also showed Anthony in a bar.

In none of the appearances did she make a reference to her daughter or to her estranged parents.

Casey Anthony Reveals New Theory for Caylee's Death

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- In jailhouse interviews with two psychiatrists, Casey Anthony revealed yet a different theory for how her 2-year-old daughter Caylee may have died.

Anthony, 25, told two doctors in separate interviews that she suspects her father George Anthony took the little girl from the bed mother and daughter shared, had some sort of sexual episode with her, and then drowned her to cover it up.

"She said, 'I think he held her underwater, maybe he was doing something to her and he tried to cover it up,'" Dr. Jeffery Danziger recalled Anthony saying in his deposition that was released Wednesday.

Anthony told Danziger that she called her mother Cindy Anthony four times, but could not reach her. It was not until several hours later that her mother called back and, at that point, a shocked Anthony "froze."

"I hoped he'd step up to be my dad and take responsibility," she told Danziger.

Danziger said Anthony implied that her father's eventual suicide attempt was "his way out of the grief or guilt and I'm left to take the wrap [sic]."

"This was said with a measure of anger," the doctor said, and said she added, "I'll be damned if I take responsibility for this."

George Anthony's attorney Mark Lippman issued a statement Wednesday saying that Anthony was "made aware of these statements in the deposition prior to the trial of his daughter in 2011 and no new information has been disclosed today."

"As he has repeatedly said prior to the trial, during the trial and after the trial he never molested any member of his family including Casey Anthony and he had nothing to do with the death of Caylee Marie Anthony including what happened to her remains after she allegedly drowned," Lippman wrote.

Anthony conceded to the doctor that she eventually told her mother "everything but the truth," but couldn't explain why. She said that she really didn't know at the time what had ultimately happened to Caylee.

"I was hoping she [Caylee] was somewhere, that she was still okay," Danziger recalled her saying.

For months after Anthony was confronted with Caylee's disapearance, Casey Anthony insisted her daughter had been kidnapped by a fictitious babysitter. At the opening of her murder trial, her lawyer admitted the child hadn't been kidnapped, but had drowned in the family's pool.

Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee during a sensational trial last summer.

More Casey Anthony Videos and Pictures Surface

ABC News(ORLANDO, Florida) -- Casey Anthony, the Florida mother who was acquitted last summer of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, has showed up in what appears to be yet another video online.

This time, Anthony is sporting a different look from the videos that emerged earlier this week.

On the latest tape, which was posted on Twitter, she brags about her piercings, but says nothing about Caylee or her family. "I pierced my nose last night...Very excited," she said in the video.

Earlier this week, Anthony’s video diary was discovered on YouTube, thrusting Anthony back in the spotlight after six months of hiding out.

Photos have since appeared online showing Anthony in several locations including a bar or restaurant. Anthony was famously photographed in bars during the months that her daughter was dead and she hadn't told anyone.

When confronted about Caylee's disappearance, Anthony initially claimed that a phantom babysitter had stolen Caylee. At her trial, her lawyer said that Caylee drowned in the family pool.

Anthony sports a restyled short bob, transitioning from a brunette to a blonde in the photos and the video diary.

In her video diary, she spoke about her new pet dog, buying a computer and the optimism she feels about her future.

"The good thing is things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way. Let's just hope they stay, that things stay good and that they only get better," she says before adding with a whisper, "They'll only get better."

Anthony's defense attorney Cheney Mason says that Anthony was not responsible for posting the video to YouTube, saying the material was mean to be private and part of counseling.

"Casey has been keeping notes and memoirs, particularly for her personal use for future counseling. This will help her remember her thought processes," Mason said in a statement. "She did not upload or publish this to YouTube. She does not know who did it. When they did it. Why they did it. It was not authorized; therefore it had to be obtained criminally by an illegal act."

Anthony's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, were also taken by surprise with the video's appearance.

"Cindy and George were made aware of the video diary of their daughter this morning, January 5, 2012," their attorney Mark Lippman said in a statement.

"They are concerned that the release of this video or any future videos could endanger their daughter," he wrote. "Cindy and George hope that Casey remains safe wherever she may be."

Cindy and George Anthony have a famously tense relationship with their daughter, a family drama that played out in public during Casey Anthony's murder trial.

The parents were divided regarding their daughter and what happened to their granddaughter Caylee.

Can Casey Anthony Find Redemption?

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Casey Anthony's sudden reemergence via an online video journal, in which she speaks of the optimism she feels about her future, has sparked controversy across the web and left many wondering if it's possible for the 25-year-old acquitted of killing her daughter to find redemption.

In the black and white video diary posted to YouTube on Thursday, Anthony, sporting a new blonde bob and thick-framed glasses, spoke about her life in hiding, her new pet dog, buying a computer and her excitement for her future.

Late Thursday, a second clip emerged, reportedly from the same user that posted the first clip, featuring a stream of never-before-seen photographs of Anthony supposedly taken while she has been in hiding.

"Casey Anthony is in hiding.  These are photos that Casey gave to her 'friends' online," the text accompanying the video from user ameliathenbrooks1 states.

"[The first clip] is almost like a therapy session, in a lot of ways.  'I am feeling better … got a dog, love my dog.'  This was really her attempt at catharsis," Howard Bragman, a veteran Hollywood publicist, told ABC News.

The video, in which she states it is Oct. 13, is the first time the public has heard Anthony speak since a Florida jury found her not guilty of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee.  Anthony's highly publicized trial and July acquittal gripped the nation and left millions of people feeling that the Orlando, Fla. mother got away with murder.

"I'm extremely excited that I'll be able to keep a video log, take some pictures and have something that I can finally call mine," Anthony says in the video.  "I know it's going to be a while since I leave, I'll be here for many, many months more -- even if I'm only here for six months, even if I get off probation early."

Not once in the clip does Anthony mention her dead daughter Caylee.

The whereabouts of where the video was shot is unclear, although it is known that she is currently serving one year of probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction.

Bragman, who is now vice-chairman of Reputation.com, an online service that helps people downplay harsh things that have been written about them on the Internet, says, "If this was her attempt to tell her own story for public consumption, she did it badly.  If something bad about you is online, there is not statute -- it's like herpes.  It's something you have to live with for the rest of your life."

Restyled Casey Anthony Makes Video Debut

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- A restyled Casey Anthony has made a public debut, speaking publicly for the first time since being released from jail in a video diary.

"The good thing is things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way.  Let's just hope they stay, that things stay good and that they only get better," she says before adding with a whisper, "They'll only get better."

ABC News confirmed from a source close to Anthony that the video was genuine.

In the Oct. 13 video, Anthony, 25, sports a bleached blonde bob that is dramatically different from the long, dark hair she often wore in a ponytail during her sensational murder trial which ended in her acquittal.  She also wears dark-rimmed glasses and a white tank top and sits in what appears to be a leather office chair in a wood-paneled den or office with photos on the wall.

"There really hasn't been that much going on except now for this and, you know, I'm extremely excited," Anthony says.  "I'm extremely excited that I'll be able to Skype and obviously keep a video log, take some pictures and then I have something that I can finally call mine."

Anthony was acquitted last July of murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee, but was convicted on four counts of lying to law enforcement for claiming that 2-year-old Caylee had been kidnapped by a babysitter.  She is currently serving one year of probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction.

After being released from jail, Anthony went into hiding amid death threats from people who were shocked that she was not convicted of killing her daughter.

In the video, Anthony alternates between seeming relaxed and happy with being pensive and serious.  She expresses excitement with her new video blog.

"This has just been such a blessing in so many ways and now I, in some ways, have someone to talk to when I'm by myself so I'm not bothering the poor dog who I've adopted and I love and he's as much my dog as any of the other pets I've ever had," she says.

Anthony does not mention her daughter or her parents during the video blog.  She is estranged from her parents who made it clear that she cannot come home after Anthony's lawyer accused her father of molesting her as a child and helping to dispose of Caylee's body.

Anthony must stay in Florida as she serves out her year-long probation and checks in monthly with a probation officer.  There is a possibility that she could get off probation early, but she says in the video, "It's going to be a while [before] I leave."

After speaking on and off for just over four minutes, Anthony signs off, but not before suggesting that there will be more to come from her.

"So, this is the end of my first video log.  I'll probably do another one later…maybe I'll bring the dog, who knows?" Anthony says.  "But this is again the first of many and I'm looking forward to this.  It's going to be scary because I hate being on camera, but, I don't know, I need to conquer that fear at some point…this is a good start.  So, here's hoping.  It's the end of the first, just the beginning."

New Lawsuit Filed Against Casey Anthony

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- Casey Anthony can't stay out of trouble, even when she's in seclusion.  The 25-year-old Orlando, Fla., woman is being sued by the man who found her two-year-old daughter's body in 2008.

Former meter reader Roy Kronk alleges that Anthony defense's team suggested that he had something to do with Caylee Anthony's disappearance and death during the sensational trial earlier in the year in which Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murder.

Kronk's complaint states that defense attorney Jose Baez and his team implied he was, "a killer, a child snatcher and morally bankrupt" and that Kronk placed the remains of Anthony's daughter where they would be found.

However, Baez's contention that Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool proves that all the allegations made against Kronk were false, the complaint says.

Casey Anthony already faces two other lawsuits in Florida, one by a woman who says Caylee was taken by a nanny who shares her name and the other by a nonprofit group that wants to be reimbursed for expenses in the search for Caylee.
