(Newser) – Well, this probably won't win her any new fans: Casey Anthony, who is due to be released Sunday, filed an appeal today on her four convictions of lying to police officers. Anthony was found guilty of lying about topics including her job, her daughter Caylee's babysitter, and a conversation she supposedly had with Caylee after she went missing, ABC News reports. In addition to four years in prison, a sentence that will soon come to an end, she was fined $4,000. Click to read about a woman who was nearly killed because of her resemblance to Anthony.
