ORLANDO, Fla. —
A court official says Casey Anthony is going to be released from jail next Wednesday following her
conviction for lying to authorities who were investigating the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Anthony was sentenced to four years in jail earlier Thursday, but she is receiving credit for the time she has already served as
well as good behavior. She has been in jail for nearly three years.
Anthony was acquitted of murder in the death of her child Tuesday.
A judge has sentenced Casey Anthony to four years in prison for lying to investigators but says she can go free in late July or early August because she has already served nearly three years in jail and has had good behavior.
The judge sentenced Anthony on Thursday, two days after she was acquitted of first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
