Casey Anthony Free as Probation Ends

Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez is suing Anthony for using her name when she told Orlando police that her 2-year-old daughter Caylee was stolen by a babysitter and gave police her name. Anthony stuck to that lie for three years before her lawyer told the court at the opening of her murder trial that the babysitter never existed and that Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool.

Fernandez-Gonzalez sued Anthony for defamation, saying that she lost her job and home as a result of the accusations. The trial for the civil suit is scheduled to take place in January 2013.

Matt Morgan, one of the attorneys for Fernandez-Gonzalez, said that the end of Anthony's probation does not affect the defamation case in any way.

"We have at this point already obtained service on Casey Anthony and therefore she will have to attend the trial," Morgan told ABCNews.com. "If she were to leave the state and go outside of the jurisdiction, come January she'd have to return and face Zenaida Gonzalez in the courtroom."

Anthony has checked in with probation officers every month for the past year and her monthly reports have been public. Anthony's reports have consistently said that she is unemployed, has not been taking any classes and has not been drinking alcohol or taking drugs.

"It'd be hard to imagine that, at least in the very near future, she could ever have what many of us would consider a normal life," Greene said.
