Casey Anthony, Texas group reach settlement
ORLANDO, Fla. (KABC) -- A settlement has been reached between Casey Anthony and a Texas group regarding payment obligations in the search for her missing 2-year-old daughter six years ago.
Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery helped look for her daughter Caylee from mid-July 2008 through September 2008.
Under the terms of the settlement filed last week, the agency will be allowed to have an unsecured claim of $75,000 in Anthony's bankruptcy case.
The group had objected to the bankruptcy, claiming it spent more than $100,000 during the investigation. Attorneys for Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery said Anthony knew her daughter was already dead.</p
The Florida woman was acquitted in July 2011 on charges of murdering Caylee but convicted of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.
She told officers a baby sitter had kidnapped the child. Authorities late learned the baby sitter never existed.
Anthony filed for bankruptcy in Florida in January.
