Judge Belvin Perry has sentenced Casey Anthony to one year in jail for each of the four counts of lying to police, which will run consecutively.
The judge and defense attorney Jose Baez said it will take about an hour to figure out what exact time Anthony has served and how to apply that to the sentence. The jail would also have to consider any good behavior time.
It appears that for now Casey Anthony is headed back to jail – we’ll just have to wait for the specific calculations from the court to find out for how long.
Perry also said he would fine Anthony $1,000 for each count.
Anthony has remained stoic during this portion of the court hearing. She is conferring with her other attorneys as the judge hands down the sentence.
Perry also said that the court will work to calculate the cost of the investigation into Caylee Anthony’s disappearance and what amount of that Casey Anthony might have to pay. The judge has also let Anthony and her team know that they have 30 days to appeal his ruling.
As she prepared to exit the courtroom, Casey Anthony let out a tiny smile.
