Casey Anthony is free:
Acquitted of murder, mom completes probation sentence
Despite the controversy over daughter Caylee’s death, she can now leave Florida, where she has been in hiding since the acquittal.

She's on the loose.
Casey Anthony has completed her year-long probation sentence for check fraud and is now free to leave the state of Florida, authorities said Friday. The 26-year-old has been in hiding since last summer, when she was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
In a separate case before the murder trial, the alleged monster mom pleaded guilty to stealing checks from a friend during the time her tot was missing in 2008 and was placed on probation last summer.
She has not been seen in public, surfacing only in self-released video diary last fall and an interview she gave to CNN's Pierce Morgan, in which she did not appear on camera but had her comments relayed by the host.

Greene said he feared for her safety, and would not give any details about her plans for the future. "If she's walking on the street and someone starts running towards her, are they running to catch a bus? Are they running to give her a hug, running to spit on her or are they running to do worse?" he told ABC News. Those are among the many things she'll have to consider in deciding, where do I go from here?"
Anthony was reportedly living in West Palm Beach after bouncing from different homes around the state.
In the video diaries, which were shot last fall and surfaced in January, she appeared unrecognizable in a short blond bob and thick black glasses.
Last month, People magazine reported that she kept a creepy memento of her dead daughter - a necklace containing the little girl's ashes. Her mother, Cindy, reportedly had one as well, the magazine said.
In an interview with Morgan in June, Anthony admitted that she was "ashamed" of her lifestyle at the time of the little girl's death, but stuck to her story that Caylee drowned in the family's pool.
"I'm ashamed in many ways of the person that I was," she told Morgan. "Even then, that wasn't who I am. I'm 26 now, and I've gone through hell."
Greene told ABC News that there were no immediate plans for a book or movie about Anthony's life. "There's things she wants to say, but they need to be on her time, her terms, her conditions," he said. "I hope that one day she says more."
