Casey Anthony ordered back to Orlando to serve one year of probation

Orange Circuit Judge Stan Strickland signed amended court documents yesterday morning that ordered Casey Anthony to return to Orlando within 72 hours to serve one year of supervised probation for a check fraud charge that Anthony pleaded guilty to in January.

Judge Strickland has said it was always his intention for Anthony to serve a year of probation after her release from jail as a part of her sentence.

Local legal analysts were split yesterday on whether the court has the jurisdiction to order Anthony back under supervision at this point.

Sunny Hostin, CNN legal contributor, joins American Morning today to discuss the Judge's move and to weigh in on why Casey's lawyers are challenging his order.

Will Casey Anthony be in danger when she's released on Sunday?

While Casey Anthony is set to walk free from jail on Sunday, she is certain to face further challenges once she is released.

Although Casey will be free to profit by telling her story since she was acquitted of the murder charges in the death of her two year old daughter, she faces death threats and outrage from critics who are convinced of her guilt.

On American Morning today, Sunny Hostin, CNN legal contributor, talks with Ali Velshi and Soledad O'Brien about Casey's safety, security, and her ability to profit off of her case.

Casey Anthony release now July 17th, and another juror speaks out

Casey Anthony will have to spend nine more days in jail before she get her first taste of freedom.

Anthony was sentenced yesterday to four consecutive years behind bars for lying to police, but with time served her release date was set for July 13th.

That's now been pushed back to July 17th.

The Orange County Corrections Department did some re-calculating last night and determined, without explanation, that Casey needed to remain in jail four days longer than first reported.

Also this morning, we're hearing from another juror about why they chose the not guilty verdict that will set Anthony free. Juror #2, who has chosen to remain anonymous, told the St. Petersburg Times that "Everybody agreed if we were going fully on feelings and emotions, she was done...I wish we had more evidence to put her away. I truly do."

In Session's Sunny Hostin explains the latest developments on American Morning this morning.
