Casey Anthony to be released Wednesday
(CBS/WKMG/AP) ORLANDO, Fla. - Casey Anthony will be released from jail on Wednesday of next week, according to a court official.
Anthony was sentenced Thursday by Judge Belvin Perry to four years in prison for lying to police, but with credit for time served and good behavior she will remain in jail for just one more week.
Judge Belvin Perry and attorneys figured out her credit for time served and good behavior after her sentencing hearing.
Casey Anthony has been in jail since October 2008.
She received one year in jail, to be served consecutively, on each of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement as well as a fine of $1,000 for each count, plus court costs.
As the sentence was announced, Orlando real estate broker Flora Reece stood outside the courthouse with a sign that read "Arrest the Jury."
After the sentencing, protesters chanted Caylee's name outside the courthouse as well as "Justice for Caylee," reports the station.
"At least she won't get to pop the champagne cork tonight," Reece said of the judge's decision to keep Anthony in jail.
The crowd of a few dozen emotionally charged protesters stood apart from the handful of Casey Anthony supporters, which included one man displaying a sign asking Anthony to marry him, reports WKMG.
On Tuesday, Anthony was acquitted on first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter charges in the death of her daughter, Caylee.
