Casey Anthony, who was acquitted last year for the first-degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony, will soon be a free woman once her probation has concluded.
Anthony’s attorney, Charles Greene, told ABCNews.com that, “As of Friday, Aug. 24 at 12 a.m, nobody will be able to tell her where to be.”
"She's complied with all the terms of her probation and she's looking forward to having her freedom to move forward because, even though she's been out of jail for the last year, she's essentially still been in prison by the requirement that she remains in one location," Greene said.
Last summer, Anthony was acquitted for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony. The public had become infatuated with the case, and many were outraged with the ruling.
Following her acquittal, Florida Judge Belvin Perry ordered Anthony to serve one year of probation for check-fraud conviction in 2010. Anthony had pled guilty to stealing checks during the time Caylee was missing prior to the murder trial for her daughter.
Anthony has for the most part been away from the public eye since the end of the trial last summer and for the duration of her probation. A few video diaries have surfaced online, and a phone conversation between her and Piers Morgan leaked, but other than that, not much has been seen or heard from Anthony.
According to her probation records, Anthony has been unemployed while on probation, thus leaving some to wonder how she financially sustains herself.
Greene hinted at the possibility of a book penned by Anthony, but said he wasn’t sure one way or another what her plan is.
"There's things she wants to say, but they need to be on her time, her terms, her conditions," said Anthony’s attorney Charles Greene. "I hope that one day she says more."
"People ranging from the media to people with lawsuits against her to people with just a fantastic obsession with her search for her on a daily basis," Greene said. "People have a fascination with her life that, for some people, borders on psychotic."
"Getting off probation and having the ability to move around will increase her freedom to concentrate on other things, including moving forward and figuring out what happens next as well as what happened in the past," he said. “She's looking forward to being out from probation and having the freedom to handle things in her life and move forward, but her plans are confidential."
Anthony served her probation time in Florida, though whether or not she’ll stay there after her probationary period has ended is anyone’s guess.
"It'd be hard to imagine that, at least in the very near future, she could ever have what many of us would consider a normal life," Greene said.
