Casey Anthony was ordered back to Orlando, Fla., and will be required to serve a year of probation for check fraud charges in light of a clarification made by the judge presiding over that case.

Anthony, 25, was released from jail in Orlando last month without any restrictions placed on her freedom after her acquittal on a murder charge connected to the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Her whereabouts have not been publicly disclosed in the weeks since her release.

Jail officials concluded that Anthony’s probation period was completed during the 18 months she spent in jail awaiting trial. But the judge who sentenced her said he intended for the probation to begin after her release.
