Casey Anthony Back in Jail But Could Get Bail - ABC News

Casey Anthony Back in Jail But Could Get Bail - ABC News

Hours after the jury shocked the courtroom by finding her not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, Casey Anthony was returned to jail where she was kept in protective custody, a standard procedure for high profile inmates, according to ABC News affiliate WFTV.

The jury found Casey Anthony guilty on four counts of providing false information to law enforcement, which are first degree misdemeanors punishable with up to one year per count.

Sentencing on the guilty counts will be held on 9 a.m. Thursday. The maximum sentence applicable in this case is four years, but having already served two and a half years behind bars, Anthony stands to serve one and a half years.

It is possible that Judge Belvin Perry could rule that Anthony can serve the years concurrently, which would set her free since she's already served over two years in jail.
