Casey Anthony to Be Released From Jail July 17


Further Legal Hurdles for Casey

Baez says that he is worried about how she will be treated by an angry public that watched the trial closely.

"I'm afraid for her, and I don't think it's fair," Baez said.

Prosecutors, too, have said that they're worried for Casey's safety.

One of the prosecutors said "I wouldn't want anyone in the community to be so upset by this that they try to do something to her … she was acquitted and people just need to accept that."

Anthony's death penalty lawyer, Ann Finnell, told ABC News, "I hope she takes the high road."

Anthony willl have to return to court again soon because the state of Florida has filed a motion to recoup some of the costs of investigating her case.

She also faces a defamation case. Anthony was served while in jail with a subpoena from the real Zenaida Gonzalez, a name Anthony used to describe a fictional nanny she claimed stole her child.

Anthony admitted in court that the kidnap story was a lie, and Gonzalez now wants that on the record for the libel case she has launched against Anthony.

"I want the truth to come out. I want them to know that I didn't do anything wrong," Gonzalez told ABC News Orlando affiliate WFTV.

There is a video deposition scheduled for July 19, whether Casey Anthony is free or not.
