Casey Anthony faced the judge this morning looking like she was ready to get back to the world as many expected she would today.
However, Judge Belvin Perry wasn’t having that.
The “tough judge” who has been presiding over the Casey Anthony case since the beginning chose to give Casey Anthony the maximum sentence she could receive for her crimes of lying to investigators three times.
Perry sentenced Casey one year in prison and a $1000 fine for each of the four counts, to be served consecutively. Which means a four year sentence.
However, after the judge and prosecutor factored in the nearly three years Casey has already served, plus time off for “good behavior,” her release date has been set to July 13. Yes, 2011. Yes, six days from today.
You gotta love how this justice system works…
Casey is due back in court soon to determine how much she should have to repay of the $12,000 investigators spent on their search for little Caylee, being that Casey’s defense claimed that she knew all along that her daughter had drowned.
