ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- A Florida judge stayed an order Wednesday that Casey Anthony return to the state to report to the probation office in Orlando.

Belvin Perry Jr., the chief judge in Orlando, signed an order that delays Anthony's appearance until her lawyers have a chance to argue she has already served her probation on a check fraud charge, Orlando's WFTV-TV reported. Perry, who presided over Anthony's murder trial for the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, took over the case after Judge Stan Strickland, who ordered Anthony to appear, recused himself Wednesday.

Anthony left the state immediately after she was released from jail. She was acquitted of murder but convicted of lying to investigators.

Jose Baez, who headed Anthony's defense team, told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday he believes she would be in danger if she returned to Florida. Defense lawyers also argue Anthony served her probation while she was in jail awaiting trial on the murder charge, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The celebrity Web site TMZ has reported sources said Anthony is getting mental treatment. Her whereabouts are unknown although TMZ ran photos of a woman it said was Anthony taken in Columbus, Ohio.
