MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – Casey Anthony can’t seem to stay out of the path of the Florida court system. A judge is now considering whether Anthony will have to pay the cost of investigating Caylee Anthony’s disappearance.
Casey was acquitted of the murder of Caylee in July, but was convicted on four counts of lying to authorities. Authorities spent money and manpower to search for Caylee after Casey told them a babysitter took Caylee.
All total, law enforcement filed expenses of $517,000 and the judge is trying to determine if Casey Anthony must pay those charges.
Anthony is serving probation at an undisclosed location in Florida. Her attorney is appealing the lying conviction and could ask the judge to delay a payment decision until the appeal is decided.
