Website: Casey Anthony Signs Book Deal
ORLANDO, Fla. – The Los Angeles Examiner is reporting that Casey Anthony has signed a book deal and promises to reveal the identity of Caylee’s father.
The website, citing anonymous sources, said Anthony will write the book with the help of a ghost writer.
The website said Anthony’s multi-media deal includes a six-figure cash advance. It said she took this deal because she is afraid there will not be other offers because she cannot do book signings.
On Friday, Judge Belvin Perry upheld another judge’s order that Anthony return to Orange County to serve one year probation on an unrelated check fraud conviction.
Anthony’s attorneys are expected to appeal that order, but if Anthony does serve probation, she will be required to get a job. The Examiner speculated that a book deal could fulfill that requirement.
Anthony, 25, was released from the Orange County Jail on July 17 after completing a four-year sentence for four counts of lying to police. She was acquitted earlier the same month on felony charges that she abused and killed her 2-year-old-daughter, Caylee Anthony.
Caylee was reported missing on July 15, 2008, after not being seen for a month. Her remains were found near the Anthony family’s east Orange County home on Dec. 11, 2008.
