Casey is being bombarded with death threats and even Florida’s prison boss calls her one of ‘the most hated women in America.’ But should she be given special treatment?
Casey Anthony will serve her 12-month long probation in a secret location and will spend the year taking online courses rather than working, because of fears for her safety.
The 25-year-old began the sentence — her punishment for a check fraud conviction — on Wednesday, August 24. As a condition of her probation, Casey was required to work full-time — but that rule has been waived by officials who claim she has received death threats and could be attacked or killed if she ventured out in public.
Admitting Casey is one of “the most hated women in America,” Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gretl Plesinger told a press conference on Thursday August 25, “Because of the death threats against her and the court orders, we are taking security into consideration in this case certainly and we will not be disclosing the location or anything that will lead to the discovery of her location.”
Casey will have to adhere to the other conditions of probation — and she’s in danger of returning to jail if she commits a crime or associates with criminals during the year.
But Gretl Plesinger believes she’ll stick to the rules: “She told the probation officer that she intended to do well on probation. She was polite and cooperative.”
How will she occupy herself? Broadening her eduction taking online college courses — according to her lawyer Jose Baez.
Casey has been in hiding since she was found not guilty of murdering her daughter Caylee, 2.
Are you satisfied with Casey’s punishment? Do you think she’s getting special treatment?
