Casey Anthony has finished her year-long probation for a check fraud conviction she received in 2011, after being acquitted for the murder of her two year old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.
However, Florida Department of Corrections officials told the Washington Post that no public announcement about the end of her probation or the location of the now 23-year-old will be made due to security reasons. Officials say that Anthony has received death threats.
In May 2011, the 22-year-old was charged with first degree murder of her two year old daughter Caylee, whose body was discovered in a near-by forest. Anthony pleaded not guilty, her father George Anthony was accused of helping his daughter hide the body of his grand-daughter. George also denied all allegations.

The Casey Anthony trial received huge media attention, with perennially changing testimonies from witness ( including the parents of Anthony) and only conclusive evidence, the story grabbed the nation's attention as if a TV suspense drama with its many twists and turns and of course at the center of it a shifty mysterious protagonist. In the end, the six week trial ended with the 22-year-old mother being acquitted, but the public being just as suspicious and prejudice.
In an interview a few months ago with the Associated Press, Anthony's head lawyer Jose Baez, said that at the begining of the case he was seriously considering having Anthony plead guilty to the lesser charge of aggravated murder.
In his book called "Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story," which hit book stores last week, Baez told AP that "There were times, difficult times, when the evidence didn't look good for Casey," however remaining firm that "there was nothing in the trial that ever made me think Casey was guilty of anything as related to the murder," as reported by the Associated Press.Baez's book was released in July.
