The wife of one of Casey Anthony's attorneys tells authorities that their family has gotten numerous harassing phone calls and that their home number was posted on Facebook.

The wife of lawyer Cheney Mason told a dispatcher for the Seminole County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday that she's worried for their safety and has been recording calls and messages and taking notes, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Shirley Mason said callers have left voice mails stating that Anthony "can run but she can't hide" and warning that Mason and attorney Jose Baez "better sleep with one eye open."

On July 5, 25-year-old Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. She left the Orange County Jail early Sunday with Baez and has not been seen in public since.
