Casey Anthony smiles before the start of her sentencing hearing in Orlando, Fla.,Thursday, July 7, 2011. Judge Belvin Perry sentenced Anthony to four years for lying to investigators but says she can go free in late July or early August because she has already served nearly three years in jail and has had good behavior. While acquitted of killing and abusing her daughter, Caylee, Anthony was convicted of four counts of lying to detectives trying to find her daughter. undefined,AP Photo/Joe Burbank

A judge on Thursday set the deposition for early October and she also left open the possibility that the videotape and a transcript of the deposition will be sealed from public release.

Anthony told detectives in 2008 that her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was kidnapped by a nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez. Detectives said no such babysitter existed. However, a woman with that name sued Anthony, claiming her reputation was ruined.

Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee and released from jail in July. She is now serving probation on an unrelated charge at an undisclosed location in Florida. Her whereabouts have been kept secret due to the fact that she has been receiving death threats.
