Score another one for Casey Anthony's attorneys.

After the suspected killer was spotted in Ohio yesterday, talk turned to whether or not Casey would be required to attend a probation hearing in Orlando on Friday. Her lawyer, Jose Baez, has been attempting to keep his client clear of the city due to "an issue of safety," he said on The Today Show this morning.

Now, it appears as if he's succeeded.
