ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The first week of Casey Anthony's freedom has begun away from the public eye following the furor, and death threats when she was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.
Her whereabouts today are a closely guarded secret known only to a select few as she tries to start a new life. Her lawyer said her allies are exploring a number of options for her future.
Those options could be limited, though, by lawsuits pending against her, the scorn of multitudes who think she was guilty of the killing and a criminal record from her convictions for lying to police. She walked out of jail shortly after midnight Sunday and was quickly whisked away.
Experts who have helped other notorious defendants through rough times said she will have opportunities, but it won't be easy for the 25-year-old.
