Casey Anthony Fined Nearly $100K For Lies Resulting in Caylee Search

by at . Comments

A judge just ordered Casey Anthony to pay more than $97,000 in costs associated with investigating her daughter's disappearance back in 2008 - costs that could have been avoided or mitigated were it not for her lies.

Judge Belvin Perry issued the ruling today, and while significant, it represents less than one-fifth of the amount that prosecutors sought.

Casey Anthony has been ordered to pay the following:

C. Anthony
  • $61,505.12 to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • $10,0283.90 to the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation
  • $25,837.96 to the Orange County Sheriff's Office
  • $50 to the State Attorney's Office.

The costs - $97,676.98 to be precise - were incurred while officials searched for Caylee Marie Anthony, between July 15 and September 29, 2008.

Prosecutors sought more than $500,000 in costs from Anthony, who was acquitted of murder but nailed for four counts of lying to law enforcement.

Perry's order requires Anthony to pay costs associated only with counts of which she was convicted, so she's off the hook in the high-five figures.

Not that $97K is chump change, or that this particular chump won't have issues coming up with it. A judge already declared her indigent in 2010.

Maybe Dr. Phil can help with another donation. You know he'd be game if she agreed to sit down for an all-time ratings grab. Wheels are turning ...

Z-Lister, Do you know anything about the law. When OJ Simpson was acquitted, was anything mention about he had to pay anything to The father on the guy he was accused of killing. No. But he still has to forfeit millions because of case that came after. Are you living in la-la-land. Cant you read? Just read the second sentence of the above article, which stated, "Judge Belvin Perry issued the ruling today, and while significant, it represents less than one-fifth of the amount that prosecutors sought." The Phrase is, "THAT PROSECUTORS SOUGHT". What does that sound like to you? It is like another trial to recoup charges. The judge had to rule on a case.

Partygirlbabykiller sold her soul to the devil! That's the only way the jurors ignored commonsense! What she has to pay isn't enough when a innocent child is still dead and gone and no justice came to this evil wickedchild of Satan is still alive! And Cindy Anthony can go to hell too! She is another stupid bitch! While she comes up withevery excuse in the book to defend why Casey kill her daughter!

Casey Anthony has already sold her soul to the Devil,, thats how she got off. She should just ask the Devil for the money and after paying the bill move on straight to Hell where she belongs!!

Team me

@jt
Oh, really? Lots of other people lie about someone missing and get caught wasting the time, money, and effort that good people put into finding that "missing" person? Whatever. She deserves to pay those people back for everything they wasted in trying to find a baby girl who was already dead. She deserves every single bad thing that ever comes her way. Whether she killed her daughter or not, she is fucked in the head and deserves nothing less than the worst that life has to offer.

This has never been done in the state of Florida before. This is a first because it is Casey Anthony.
Everyone should know by now that Judge Perry will always rule against Casey Anthony and her lawyers. Thousands others have the same conviction with high costs associated and she is the only one in the history of the state ever charged to this degree.

So, is this a one-off slap at Casey Anthony, or does it establish case-law which will apply to every suspect in the State of Florida? Casey was sentenced to maximum consecutive sentences on the lying charges, and nothing was mentioned at sentencing about restitution. This decision begs to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
