Casey Anthony Enters Treatment For Mental Health Issues -- Interviews On Hold

"They Wanna Make Me Go To Rehab....."

After all the number crunching, courting, hoopla and media speculation, it appears Casey Anthony won't be sitting down with ABC .. NBC ... CBS or any other network for at least a couple of months.

TMZ has learned Casey will be seeking professional treatment for serious mental issues instead.

Sources close to Anthony reveal Casey is seeking treatment for three reasons:

First, Casey now realizes that her questionable behavior when her daughter Caylee went missing back in 2008 stemmed from "obvious mental health issues."

The second reason, Casey still needs help coping with the "obvious trauma of losing her child."

Thirdly, Casey  was incarcerated for nearly three years in solitary confinement, where she spent 23 hours a day in a 4x9 foot cell.  All while facing murder chargers.
Our source, directly connected to Casey, tells us, "It messed with her head."

We're told Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, will continue to field offers on Casey's behalf.

Baez states "When she's healthy, Casey will have the final word on where and how her story will be told."

  And, for WHAT PRICE.....

George and Cindy Anthony Laughed At $250,000 Offer For Talk Show Interview

Casey Anthony's Parents Say $250,000 Just Doesn't Cut It! Demand More Money For Interview.

The network bidding war over key interviews in the Casey Anthony case has gone into the stratosphere.

TMZ is reporting a syndicated talk show was laughed at with a bid of $250,000 for Casey's PARENTS!!!

What IS their price for Caylee?  Cindy, George and Casey Anthony in Bidding Wars Over First Interview

The bidding has gone crazy ... we're hearing the bidding for a Casey interview was over $1.5 million.

Now ABC News has just released a statement, saying it will no longer pay for photos and video in exchange for interviews.

The announcement comes days after Casey's lawyer, Jose Baez, was holed up in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, taking bids from NBC, ABC and CBS. As reported, Baez was in the Hotel bar Thursday night, discussing strategy with famed lawyer Mark Geragos.

Sources say all three networks were offering the same deal -- they would pay a fortune to license photos and video from Casey. Short story -- it's a dishonest way of saying they don't pay for interviews.

NBC -- which paid for Baez' hotel room -- was leading the pack in the Casey bidding war, even though the Network denied it was offering any money for an interview -- which is technically correct.

In its statement, ABC says, "We can book just about anyone based on the strength of our journalism."

Sure they can.

Casey Anthony's White Pontiac Sunfire To Be Released From Evidence Bay--Offers Pour In From Prospective Buyers

Offers are rolling in for one of the most iconic pieces of evidence in Casey Anthony's murder trial: her white Pontiac Sunfire.

The car is still in the possession of the Orange County Sheriff's Office, which says the car can be picked up anytime by George and Cindy Anthony, who own the car.

The Anthony's attorney, Mark Lippman, says he's been getting calls from people interested in buying the car.

The car was thought to be key to proving the state's murder case against Anthony.

Numerous witnesses took the stand to say how the car smelled like it had at one point carried around a body. The body of two year old Caylee Anthony, Casey Anthony's daughter.

"There are collectors of macabre things. Apparently this falls into that category now," Lippman said.

The Kelley Blue Book lists the normal value on a used Sunfire at about $3,000, but Lippman said it could go to a collector for more than that.

The money would be donated to the new foundation the Anthonys are establishing in memory of Caylee Anthony.

"I've had multiple offers to purchase it, but George and Cindy do not want to profit off it by any means," Lippman said.

Where would the car go?

Not to the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, D.C., according to the museum's CEO.

The museum has items like the so-called Bonnie and Clyde car riddled with bullet holes and vehicles belonging to Ted Bundy and John Dillinger.

"There wasn't any proof it was part of a crime. It's not a true historic artifact, so its value should diminish in the wake of that," said museum CEO Janine Vaccarello.

She said she can understand why plenty of private collectors want to call the car their own.

Lippman said Tuesday the Anthonys have not yet made a decision on what to do with the car.

He said he isn't ruling out sending the car to scrap if that's what his clients want.

Casey Anthony Should Legally Be Serving Probation In Orange County

Acquitted mom was supposed to serve a year's probation on check-fraud case after her release from jail

While much of the broadcast and tabloid world speculates daily on Casey Anthony's whereabouts, court records show that, legally, Casey Anthony should be in Orange County, serving out her sentence of one year probation.

When Circuit Judge Stan Strickland sentenced Anthony on check fraud and related charges in early 2010, he intended for her to serve a one-year probation sentence after her release from jail.

His intent is apparent from video and a printed transcript from the Jan. 25, 2010 sentencing. That is how Strickland today says his sentence should have been interpreted.

"I have reviewed my sentencing transcript and she was to begin her probation sentencing once released," Strickland said Thursday.

Among many other restrictions, that probation would have confined Anthony to Orange County, unless she received approval by her probation officer to leave her home jurisdiction.

Officials with the state Department of Corrections were confused by Strickland's sentence, however. They contacted the Orange-Osceola State Attorney's Office and were told the probation sentence should be applied during her time in jail, according to DOC spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger.

According to the DOC, Anthony's probation was terminated on Jan. 24 — exactly one year after Strickland's sentence — while she was in jail awaiting trial in the death of her daughter Caylee Marie.

Anthony, 25, was acquitted earlier this month of the most serious charges against her, including first-degree murder. She was found guilty of four misdemeanor counts of lying to law enforcement. Early on July 17, she was released from the Orange County Jail with no restrictions whatsoever.

The handling of her probation in the check-fraud case underscores how the system largely ignored her actual sentence in that case. This is perhaps due to the mistaken assumption by many that Anthony likely would receive a lengthy prison sentence on the very serious charges she faced.

A printed transcript from the January 2010 sentencing clearly shows that Strickland intended for Anthony to be on strict probation conditions upon her release from jail.

Strickland ordered, "there's going to be a withhold [of adjudication of guilt on some of the charges], followed by a year of supervised probation, once released — again, that's an issue here."

He also gave Anthony credit for 412 days time served in jail relating to that case.

A special condition Strickland applied to the probation sentence also suggests it was meant for after Anthony's release from jail: "no personal contact direct or indirect with the victim,(of the check fraud case) Amy Huizenga."

Casey Anthony's complicated sentence involved 13 counts of check fraud, theft and fraudulent use of personal identification information involving Huizenga. Following her sentencing that day, Casey Anthony apologized to Huizenga, saying, "I wish I would have been a better friend."

Strickland explained to Anthony and her attorney Jose Baez that same day that he was withholding adjudication on seven counts against her and adjudicating her guilty on six counts.

"We can't withhold adjudication unless there's a period of probation attached to it," Strickland said at the time. "So we don't know what the future holds here. If the State's correct, there'll be a conviction and lengthy prison sentence, or worse. If the defense is correct, there will be an acquittal and she will walk free."

Immediately after that statement Strickland explained that the year of supervised probation should be applied "once released."

Later, during the same proceeding, the prosecution, including Assistant State Attorney Frank George, expressed concerns about the legality of having her probation start "at some indefinite time in the future."

Frank George spoke about the possibility of Anthony's sentence starting that very day and her probation being served "while incarcerated in the Orange County Jail".

Strickland stood by his sentence, while asking both the prosecution and the defense to file a suggestion on how to modify it, if they preferred.

"If either one of your want to submit something that you think might be better or – or more realistic, let me know and I'll certainly consider it," Strickland said. "Again, I don't think it's so indefinite as to be illegal, but I get your point."

On Thursday, Strickland said neither side followed up with a motion regarding the probation sentence. After the check fraud matter was handled, Strickland recused himself from the murder case and Orange-Osceola Chief Judge Belvin Perry took over.

Perry's sentence earlier this month only involved the misdemeanor counts of lying to law enforcement and it accounted for time Anthony served in jail during the last three years. It did not address any confusion over the probation period from the check fraud case.

As to whether Anthony can or should be compelled to serve probation today, Strickland said Thursday, "It's not my case now, and I have no position on what Ms. Anthony should be doing."

Randy Means, director of investigation and administration for the State Attorney's Office, said he understood the probation was supposed to start upon Anthony's release. He had not heard that DOC based its probation calculation after consultation with the prosecutor's office.

"We thought it was designed to start afterwards," Means said. "It's hard to violate probation while in jail. "

Local defense attorney Richard Hornsby, a legal commentator on the Anthony case for WESH Channel 2, argues that case law supports the legality of Strickland's sentence.

"She's supposed to be on probation," Hornsby said. "The Department of Corrections is screwing up the interpretation of it…"

Hornsby said Department of Corrections or the State Attorney's Office could seek clarification through the court, if they chose.

"There's no doubt she's on probation and should be supervised for another year," Hornsby said.

Casey Anthony Mask Sells for Almost $1 Million on Ebay

Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder and other major charges in the death of her 2-year-old, Caylee.

How much would you pay to look like the real Casey Anthony for Halloween?

How about nearly $1 million?

A latex rubber mask bearing a striking resemblance to Anthony drew a winning bid Wednesday night of $999,900.

The mask, offered for sale from Los Angeles, received 105 total bids after it was listed Sunday at a starting price of $25.

In the item's description, the seller – using the screen name "prophunter" – said the mask was "sculpted to precision for a parody video by enigmatic pop artist/sculptor Torro," and only nine masks were actually produced.



The description also says the "Tot Mom" latex rubber mask "fits most heads sizes comfortably."

Prophunter adds, "I bet Nancy Grace would love one of these."

The product pitch also calls the mask "Your chance to scare the $#!@ out of everyone and win every costume contest with this amazing Tot Mom latex rubber mask.  Possibly the MOST frightening mask on the planet."

The bid history shows 16 bids were retracted, mostly because the prospective buyers said they entered the wrong amount.

It may be a few days before prophunter receives payment and the mask is shipped.

According to eBay's purchaser policy, "If a buyer doesn't pay within four days, sellers can open an unpaid item case in the Resolution Center. If the buyer still doesn't pay or reach some other agreement with the seller, eBay may record the unpaid item on the buyer's account."

Bids grew steadily, but spiked on a couple of occasions.

One bidder went from $2,151 to $22,000, while another jumped from $40,400 to $700,000.
