Casey Anthony, whose murder trial became one of the top television news events of 2011 before she was acquitted this week on all of the most serious charges, may not be out of the woods yet, CNN reports.
Anthony, who was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee but was found guilty of four counts of lying to police, now faces a defamation lawsuit. She was subpoenaed in jail this week to give a deposition in a suit filed previously by Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez, the story says.
Gonzalez was investigated in connection with the disappearance of Caylee after Casey Anthony gave authorities a story about Caylee being taken by “Zanny the Nanny.” Gonzalez has denied ever meeting the Anthonys, and the story eventually turned out to be one of a number of elaborate lies told by Casey Anthony that had authorities searching for Caylee when she was already dead.
Casey Anthony received a four-year sentence today on the false information convictions, but has already served almost three years and is expected to be released from jail July 13.
