Casey Anthony: Unemployed On Probation
Casey Anthony Coverage
ORLANDO (CBS4)- Almost three months after being released from jail, Casey Anthony has reported that she’s unemployed and not attending any therapy or mental health sessions.
In a probation report released to the public on Tuesday, Anthony told her probation officer that she has had no source of income during the past 30 days even though her probation order requires her to “work diligently at a lawful occupation.”
Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said being jobless doesn’t put Anthony in violation of her probation. Thousands of other probationers are without jobs, given Florida’s 10.7 percent unemployment rate.
“Probation officers encourage offenders to explore their options as it relates to employment,” said Plessinger.
Anthony reported to her probation officer Monday at an undisclosed location in Florida for unrelated check fraud charges. The details of where she is serving her probation have been kept secret after a judge granted the Department of Corrections the ability to keep Anthony’s probation details confidential because of concerns for her safety.
In July, Anthony was acquitted in the murder of her 2-year old daughter Caylee. However, the 25-year-old was convicted of four misdemeanor counts of lying to authorities.
Anthony is required to check in monthly with a probation officer.
