Casey Anthony, the woman acquitted of the brutal murder of her young daughter, Caylee, lost a probation appeal on Tuesday and was ordered to report to a probation officer by Friday, ABC News reported.
Anthony, 25, has been in hiding since her controversial trial ended with a non guilty verdict. She was released from the Orange County Jail in Florida on July 17.
She had been on probation stemming from a prior check fraud conviction. The probation time overlapped with her arrest on the murder charges. She was erroneously told she could serve her probation while in jail awaiting trial, but Judge Stan Strickland, who presided over the check fraud case, actually intended for Anthony to serve probation after she got out of jail.
A three-judge panel ruled that Anthony must report to a probation officer.
