Casey Anthony, voted most hated person in America, was permitted more time Monday to find a job due to recent death threats and a tough economy.
“Many of our probationers are unemployed in this economy, and since Ms. Anthony has received several death threats from the public, she is particularly handicapped in that area,” Department of Corrections spokeswoman Jo Ellyn Rackleff told the Christian Post.
Florida’s Department of Corrections reported that Anthony, who began her one-year probation sentence in August, told her probation officer that she has not had a job in the past month and has not used any illegal drugs.
Anthony did admit to drinking alcohol, but not in excess.
According to the monthly Anthony report released by the Department of Corrections, “[Casey Anthony] answered all questions from her probation officer and continues to be compliant.”
Anthony’s lack of income, and failure to take educational or vocational classes, does not agree with her probation sentence, which claims she must “work diligently at a lawful occupation.”
The Department of Corrections contends, however, that due to Anthony’s well-known identity, she is not in violation of her probation.
“She couldn’t just go work at Wendy’s,” Rackleff told CP.
Anthony’s probation officer has awarded her more time to find a job, due to her extenuating circumstances as a controversial public figure.
She has been voted “The Most Hated Person In America” according to Ledger magazine.
Anthony is expected report monthly to her probation officer. Although probation records are usually open to the public, the Department of Corrections has agreed to keep her records private to maintain her safety.
Anthony became a national news sensation during her three-year court trial, where she was accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony in 2008.
Casey Anthony was found “not guilty” in July 2011.
She has recently been fined $217,000 in costs related to the investigation of Caylee’s disappearance and death.
Anthony is currently serving probation for an unrelated check fraud case. In 2010 she was found guilty of six counts of check fraud after she used her friend’s checkbook to purchase $400 worth of clothing and groceries.
The 25-year-old continues to remain in hiding at an undisclosed location in Fla. Casey Anthony has yet to address the public in an interview.
