Casey Anthony Appeals Lying Conviction

Experts: Casey Anthony should go to a safe house

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — When Casey Anthony is released from jail Sunday, it will probably be in the middle of the night. If her lawyers are smart, security experts say, they will arrange for several SUVs with tinted windows to pull up to the Orange County Jail. Then they will bundle her into one of them and whisk her away to a safe house, where she will be protected by bodyguards for days, if not weeks.
Casey Anthony appears before sentencing in Orlando, Fla.
"I'd tell her to go to a big house in the middle of nowhere," said Dallas-based security expert Stuart Diamond, who has worked for celebrities and federal agencies. "That would be the safest thing for her. It's more of an effort for someone to really follow through on a threat."
Online and elsewhere, Anthony has been vilified, many believing she got away with murder. Some have wished the same fate on her that prosecutors say befell her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Anthony's legal team said Friday it received an emailed death threat with a doctored photo of the 25-year-old woman with a bullet hole through her forehead. The threat was forwarded to authorities.
One her attorneys, Cheney Mason, said Anthony is nervous about getting out of jail, and he isn't taking any chances: "We are all vigilant and I am armed."
A jury acquitted Anthony last week of murder but found her guilty of lying to law officers investigating the disappearance of Caylee in 2008. She was sentenced to four years in prison, but with good behavior and nearly three years already served, she will be out this weekend.
Details of her release are being closely held, and the sheriff's department is not making the time public beforehand.More...
