Judge: Anthony must serve check fraud probation

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge says Casey Anthony must return to Orlando and serve probation for check fraud.

Judge Belvin Perry ruled Friday that Anthony must follow a probation order issued by another judge earlier this month.

The other judge ordered Anthony to report to Florida last week for her probation, but the judge later recused himself and turned the case over to Perry, who presided over Anthony's murder trial.

Anthony has been out of the public eye since she was acquitted last month in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. The jury's decision angered many people online and elsewhere, and threats were made against Anthony's life.
