The 5th District Court of Appeal in Daytona Beach has just denied Casey Anthony's legal appeal to block her one-year probation sentence, according to a just filed order.
"The petitioner and her lawyers were well aware that her probationary placement was not to begin until her release from confinement," the court's order states. "The petitioner may not, under these circumstances, take advantage of the administrative error of the Department of Corrections."
Casey Anthony's defense team has been trying to argue that the 25-year-old served probation while awaiting trial in her daughter's death.
But now, with the appellate court's order, DOC officials are ready to begin supervising Anthony after she reports to an undisclosed location by Friday.
""We're waiting for her," said DOC spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger. "She has until Friday at noon to report."
