(CBS/WKMG) ORLANDO - Casey Anthony has been ordered by a judge to return to Orange County within 72 hours to serve probation for a check fraud charge that Anthony pleaded guilty to last year.

Judge Stan Strickland, who recused himself before Anthony went to trial on murder charges, has issued an order that she serve probation for a check fraud charge. At the time, Strickland sentenced Anthony to a one year of probation, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

Strickland signed the amended order on Monday.

Anthony's whereabouts are currently unknown. She was released from the Orange County Jail on July 15 after being found not guilty of murder on July 5 in the death of her daughter, Caylee. She served additional time to complete a four-year sentence for four misdemeanor convictions of lying to police.

Strickland tried to make the probation run after Anthony was released from jail, but, last week the state said that would likely be an illegal sentence.

The state Department of Corrections interpreted Strickland's sentence so that Anthony could serve the probation while she was in jail awaiting her murder trial, but the judge says he intended the probation to be served after her release, reports the station.

On Thursday, the state attorney's office said there's nothing that can be done because the the Department of Corrections terminated Anthony's probation after one year.
