(Newser) – Casey Anthony would be in danger and require county-funded security if she has to come back to Florida from an undisclosed location to serve probation, as ordered by a judge in a check fraud case, Anthony's lawyer said today. Jose Baez told NBC's Today he hopes that Anthony will not have to return to Orlando and that his team is seeking an immediate hearing for their motions to quash the judges probation order. Baez said bringing Anthony back to Orlando would only add to what he called the "circus-like atmosphere" around her case.

Baez said Anthony already served her probation while in jail awaiting her murder trial. He also said Florida law stipulates the judge cannot amend his sentence more than 60 days after it was signed, which was in January 2010. "This thing is over and done. And for some reason things seem to keep coming up again for no apparent reason, for absolutely no apparent reason, other than let's just keep this thing going, let's just keep this madness going and engage in the circus-like atmosphere that is called the Casey Anthony case," Baez said. (In the meantime, Casey Anthony was allegedly spotted in Ohio.)
