"Casey Anthony to Be Released Next Week"

From the New York Times:

Casey Anthony, who earlier this week was found not guilty of killing her daughter, was sentenced on Thursday to four years in jail for lying to investigators, but will be released next Wednesday after getting credit for time served.

. . .

Ms. Anthony was fined $1,000 and sentenced to the maximum term of four years for each of the misdemeanor counts of lying to law enforcement officers investigating Caylee’s disappearance and death. Ms. Anthony showed no visible emotion Thursday as her sentence was being read, but had been smiling and talking to her lawyers beforehand.
