Judge weighs if Casey Anthony should pay $500k tab
ORLANDO - September 2, 2011 (WPVI) -- A Florida judge is waiting until later this month to decide if Casey Anthony should pay the cost of investigating the disappearance of her 2-year-old daughter.
Judge Belvin Perry said Friday after hearing arguments on the issue that he would not issue a ruling until at least Sept. 22.Anthony was acquitted in July of murder charges. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four counts of lying to authorities. She told officers a baby sitter had Caylee. Authorities learned the baby sitter never existed, but the investigation drained manpower. Anthony's attorneys have appealed the lying convictions. Several agencies, including the sheriff's office and Florida Department of Law Enforcement, filed expenses of more than $517,000. Anthony was not in court Friday and is serving probation in an undisclosed county in Florida.
