(Newser) – For all those up in arms over the outcome of the Casey Anthony trial, the tiniest bit of satisfying news: She's not getting out on Wednesday as announced yesterday. After "a detailed recalculation of the projected release date," Orange County corrections officials now say she’ll be out July 17—four days later. They didn’t explain how they came up with the extra time. Anthony was sentenced to four years in prison, but has already served nearly three and gets credit for good behavior. (Click for one take on why the verdict was totally fair and correct.)

On a Sunday? They're just hoping that any vigilantes' "Christian" sensibilities will nullify any desire to pop a cap.

It's a shame and an injustice that the State of Florida continues to inflict gratuitous torment on Casey Anthony.
