Casey Anthony Going Back To Jail - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Casey Anthony's Time Behind Bars Extended From Time Served Recalculation

Court officials have re-calculated the jail time served by Casey Anthony, and have now confirmed through her sentencing she will be released four days later on July 17th.

The sentencing follows 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 today, 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.

She was convicted of four counts of lying to detectives trying to find her daughter. She lied to them about working at the Universal Studios theme park, about leaving her daughter with a non-existent nanny named Zanny, about leaving the girl with friends and about receiving a phone call from her.

Her defense attorneys argued before sentencing that her convictions should be combined into one, but the judge disagreed.

Judge Belvin Perry also fined her $1,000 on each count.
