Make That Another 4 Days of Jail Time for Casey Anthony, Following Child-Murder Acquittal

Officials have recalculated the amount of time Casey Anthony must serve in jail, after being convicted of four counts of providing false information in the investigation into her missing 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Despite credit for time served awaiting trial and good behavior, she must put in another four days beyond what was originally estimated by officials, the Orlando Sentinel reports. That means she likely will be released a week from Sunday, rather than next Wednesday.

Charged with first-degree murder and other crimes concerning the Caylee’s death, the 25-year-old Casey Anthony was acquitted this week of all other charges except providing false information. She was sentenced to a maximum four one-year jail terms, to be served consecutively.
