The same judge who set Casey free this summer has handed her a bill for $97,676.98 towards the cost of investigating her daughter’s disappearance back in 2008.

Casey Anthony is paying a big price for lying to the cops who searched for her daughter Caylee. But is it big enough?

In July the 25-year-old was found not guilty of murdering Caylee, but convicted on three charges of lying about her daughter’s disappearance.

She was warned she could be hit in the pocket for the cost of the long investigation — Caylee went missing in June 2008 and her body was found SIX MONTHS later — particularly after she failed to report her disappearance for a full 31 days.

And Judge Belvin Perry ruled on Thursday, Sept. 15, that she’ll have to pay almost $100,000 to four agencies involved in the investigation, reports

Here’s the breakdown of where the money’s going:

  • $61,505.12 to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • $25,837.96 to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office
  • $10,283.90 to the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation
  • $50 to the State Attorney’s Office

Is $97,000 enough, HollyMoms?

And does this mean Casey will NEED to sell her story to a tabloid or a talk show?

Weigh in!
