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.
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.
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?
