Judge: Anthony Must Pay Almost $100K For Investigation

ORLANDO (CBS4)-A Florida judge says pay up Casey Anthony. Anthony must pay almost $100,000 in law enforcement costs for investigating the death of her 2-year-old daughter.

Judge Belvin Perry’s ruling Thursday was well short of the more than $500,000 that prosecutors and law enforcement agencies in Orlando were seeking.

Anthony was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her daughter, Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four counts of lying to authorities. She told officers a baby sitter had the child. Authorities later learned the baby sitter never existed, but the investigation drained manpower.
