Anthony owes about $792,000 -- most of it to her defense attorney, according to a Chapter 7 petition filed Friday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, The Associated Press reported.

She also faces three civil lawsuits stemming from the disappearance of her daughter, Caylee Marie,  the Orlando Sentinel reported. The 2-year-old girl was reported missing in July 2008 and her body was found that December near the home of Casey Anthony's parents in the Orlando area.

Anthony was found not guilty of murder in July 2011 but was convicted of lying about the child's disappearance. She was sentenced to time served, and on Friday an appeals court struck down two of the lying convictions.

Anthony claimed that a babysitter had kidnapped Caylee, and a woman with the same name is suing for defamation, as is the former meter reader who found the body -- he says Anthony's attorneys damaged him by painting him as a possible killer.


The third suit is by Texas EquuSearch, a search and rescue organization, which says it spent more than $100,000 searching for Caylee.

Anthony's bankruptcy filing said she had only $1,084; here are her main debts, according to the Sentinel report:

  • About $500,000 to defense attorney Jose Baez
  • $145,660.21: Orange County Sheriff's Office
  • $68,540: Internal Revenue Service
  • $61,505: Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • $10,283.90: to the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation

Makes sense, how in the world would she ever pay these debts.

Bankruptcy is a legal action that is available to everyone..yes even her

lol she doesn't want to cross paths with me (not that she ever will, we live on opposite sides of the country) but if she did I can't honestly say whether or not I would hold back. In fact, I'm not really sure how she leaves her house at all.

I think this woman should just be ignored. She's not a good person and she doesn't deserve the attention whether it's positive or negative, it just feeds her and she's not worth the time or effort.
