ORLANDO, Fla. — Casey Anthony's lawyer says she would be in danger and need security if she has to return to Florida under a judge's order in a check fraud case.

Jose Baez told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday that bringing Anthony back to Florida from an undisclosed location would just add to what he called the "circus-like atmosphere" around her case.

Anthony has disappeared from public view since her acquittal last month on charges of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.

A judge this week ordered Anthony to come back to Orlando to serve probation for check fraud that she plead guilty to in an earlier case. Anthony's lawyers have filed a motion to quash that order, arguing the judge cannot amend his sentence more than 60 days after it was signed in January 2010.

These persecutors will not be satisfied until someone shoots Ms Anthony.

Face it -- the prosecution did a lousy job; no proper case prep, no proper argument, no nuttin'.

This vindictive, activist judge, totally irate at the jury's findings, wants her back out in public -- he effectively centered the crosshairs on her...if somebody shoots her, he should be defrocked for incompetence.

If somebody kills her he should be arrested as an accomplice.She was found not guilty by a jury of her peers.This media hound judge and the rest need to get over it and move on with their lives.Almost all probation sentences can be transferred to other states and this one should be no different.

So was O.J. Simpson. How many years later he's still hounded by the public?

The only time OJ is "hounded" is when he commits yet another felony. There was a long media-silent period between his arrests.

This just in:

The original probation-ordering judge has recused himself without giving a reason [see the story below]. The judge taking over the case is the same one that presided over her murder trial...and he has ordered her back to Florida...and, as a consequence, he has put the crosshairs on Ms Anthony. Those judges down there are as bad as the one in that city/county in Georgia. [Catoosa??].

You are right, tderng, if she is killed, the judge who ordered her back should be prosecuted for aiding and abetting a felony.
