A judge ruled Wednesday that Casey Anthony, the Florida mother acquitted of murdering her toddler, will not be required to report to an Orlando probation office Thursday as ordered by a different judge.

Judge Belvin Perry instead will hold a hearing Thursday to consider the concerns raised by Anthony’s attorneys about the probation order.

Anthony, 25, will not be present at the hearing, a court spokeswoman said.

Earlier this week, Judge Stan Strickland said that he meant for Anthony to serve probation for a check fraud case after her release from jail on the murder charge connected to her 2-year-old daughter Caylee’s death, rather than during her incarceration.

Anthony’s lawyers filed an emergency motion Tuesday challenging Strickland’s amended probation order. Strickland recused himself from the check fraud case Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Wednesday posted the first known photos of Anthony since she was released from the slammer last month. The pictures show Anthony wearing an Ohio State baseball cap, glasses and tight-fitting shirts while shopping for dresses at Old Navy.

Anthony has family in Ohio, but it was not clear if she had been staying with her relatives. Sources told TMZ that she has been “bouncing around the country.”
