Normal Casey Anthony To Attend First Hearing In Months on Oct. 29

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Casey Anthony will be present at a case status hearing next week, Orange County Court officials announced on Wednesday.
The hearing was already scheduled for Oct. 29, but it wasn’t known if Anthony would attend.
Anthony hasn’t attended a hearing in her case since July, when several family members took the stand. The month prior, Anthony fell while exiting a courthouse elevator and could not attend the hearing. She is not required to attend case status hearings.
Judge Belvin Perry is expected to hear the defense’s arguments next week over two recently filed motions.
One asks for Perry to reconsider previous rulings over the public’s access to Anthony’s jail records, such as commissary purchases and visitors logs. The second pertains to a motion asking for Perry to set a budget for penalty phase costs that new defense lawyer Anne Finnell would incur.
Finnell estimated her costs could reach $20,000.
The Justice Administrative Commission, the state agency that doles out funds for indigent clients like Anthony, doesn’t fully agree with the cost estimates. In a response filed last week, the commission said some of the cost estimates were too high and others should not be paid for by the state.
The Oct. 29 hearing is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. will stream the hearing live.
