Casey Anthony enters the courtroom for her sentencing on charges of lying to a law enforcement officer at the Orange County Courthouse Orlando, Fla., Thursday, July 7, 2011.

Casey Anthony walked free from a Florida jail in the wee hours of Sunday morning as demonstrators raised placards and protested her release. Although acquitted of the charge that she murdered her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, she was convicted on four counts of misleading law-enforcement officials. Judge Belvin Perry Jr. determined that Anthony's three years in prison counted as time served, and Anthony could go free just 12 days after her sentence.
