*****Judge Belvin Perry just handed down an Order on the money Casey Anthony will have to repay for expenses into the investigation which were caused by her lying to LE. As of now, Casey will have to pay just over $97,000, with the cut-off date being September 30, 2008.
In addition, Perry directed OCSO to file revised investigative cost expense reports that state the investigative work performed from July 15, 2008 through September 29, 2008 for certain employees. The revised reports are due by Monday, September 19 and the judge could amend the order and the cost could be somewhat more.
The judge denied the prosecution request for their expenses other than the $50 ordered by statute.
It may not be the half million asked for, but it certainly is a lot of money for a gal who has none.
