Casey Anthony Sentenced to 4 Years, Will Be Released July 13

Casey Anthony was ordered to spend four years in jail for lying to investigators on Thursday (July 7) at the Orange County Courthouse in Orlando, Fla.

But the 25-year-old mother of Caylee Anthony will be released next Wednesday (July 13) due to credit for time served and good behavior, according to the court.

Casey, who was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, was, however, convicted of four misdemeanor count of providing false information to law enforcement.

Judge Belvin Perry handed down the maximum sentence of one year in jail for each counts, along with a $4,000 fine. But he explained Casey would be able to get out early since she has already spent nearly three years behind bars.
