Casey Anthony Sentenced to Four Years in Jail For Lying to Investigators But Could Be Release By End Of This Month
Casey Anthony was sentenced to four years in jail Thursday for lying to investigators in charge of the search for her daughter, Caylee. However, Anthony could be set free as early as late this month or in the beginning of August, since she's served almost three years in jail while awaiting trial with a record of good behavior.
Anthony was found not guilty earlier this week in the 2008 death of two-year-old, Caylee, although she was convicted on four counts of lying to detectives while they tried to track down the little girl.
Anthony lies included claims that she was working at the Universal Studios theme park, that Caylee was left with a nanny (who did not in fact exist) and that she had even spoken to Caylee on the phone around the time of her disappearance.
Anthony has also been fined $1,000 for each guilty count.
