It's not safe at home in Florida for Casey Anthony, her attorney argued Tuesday.

Anthony, 25, went into hiding when she was released from jail July 17 after being acquitted of murder in the death of her daughter Caylee.

But a judge on Monday ordered her to report within three days to Orlando to serve out probation in another case.

Last year, she admitted to fraudulently using her best friend's checks to buy more than $400 worth of clothes and groceries in the month after the disappearance of 2-year-old Caylee.





"Any requirement that she return to Orange County (would) put her in great peril, as well as impose a significant cost to taxpayers in securing her safety," say papers filed by her lawyer Cheney Mason.

Mason also argued that Anthony had already served out her probation while in jail in the murder case and that the judge in the check-fraud case made a number of technical errors in his order.
