She's coming out, so you better get the party started, folks. Casey Anthony, America's most hated woman, will officially be released from probation on Friday. After being acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee last summer, she has spent the last year in an undisclosed location, serving a one-year term of probation for check fraud. Apparently, during the 31 days when Casey neglected to mention to anyone that her daughter was "missing," she also wrote some checks on her former friend Amy Huizenga's account for groceries and personal items.
But, as of 12 a.m. Friday, Casey will be free to do as she pleases. According to her attorney, Charles Greene, "She's complied with all the terms of her probation and she's looking forward to having her freedom to move forward because, even though she's been out of jail for the last year, she's essentially still been in prison by the requirement that she remains in one location." Greene also said he hopes Casey will, at some point, be able to tell her story. First, hasn't she told enough stories? It's doubtful anyone will ever believe what she says anyway. That's the thing about the truth. After you've lied and lied and lied and lied (she was convicted of 4 counts of lying, right?) getting people to believe you and trust you again is going to be difficult.
So, where will Casey Anthony go, once she's free to do as she pleases? It's doubtful there's anyone who wouldn't recognize her. It's not like she will ever actually be free to live a normal life. She won't be able to go shopping, or eat in a restaurant, at lest not without some bodyguards. People have such strong feelings about her guilt or innocence, she will never be truly free. Will she face the public or will she remain hidden away, like some crazy hermit-lady? Only time will tell what will become of her. Hopefully, her freedom doesn't lead her to the same fate that befell her daughter.
