ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida judge has increased the
reimbursement costs Casey Anthony must pay to investigators for
searching for her missing 2-year-old daughter three years ago.
Judge Belvin Perry signed an order Friday adding another
$119,000 to the bill she must pay four law enforcement agencies in
central Florida. The new amount brings the total to more than
$217,000. That's still short of the $500,000 prosecutors were
The additional amount comes from the Orange County Sheriff's
Office providing the judge with more details about their costs.
Anthony was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her
daughter, Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four
misdemeanor counts of lying to authorities. She told officers a
baby sitter had kidnapped the child. Authorities later learned the
baby sitter never existed.
