Judge considers Casey Anthony's probation status

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Casey Anthony's attorneys are asking an Orlando judge to nix another judge's order requiring her to return to Florida and serve probation.

Anthony's attorneys have a hearing before Judge Belvin Perry on Friday morning. Anthony isn't attending.

Anthony disappeared from the public eye after she was acquitted last month in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Judge Stan Strickland sentenced Anthony in January 2010 to probation after she pleaded guilty to using checks stolen from a friend. The state Department of Corrections interpreted the sentence to mean Anthony could serve the probation while she was in jail awaiting trial, but Strickland said last week he intended the probation to be served after her release.

If Perry decides to honor the probation order, Anthony would have to return to Orlando.
