Casey Anthony freed from prison after misleading police

Casey Anthony has been freed from prison, less than a month after she was acquitted in the murder of her daughter. Anthony, 25, left a Florida jail overnight, stepping into a waiting SUV with her attorney. Swarms of onlookers and protesters stood outside, while security officers flanked the vehicle. Anthony was acquitted earlier this month of murder and child neglect charges in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in 2008. She was given jail time for misleading police. Her attorneys say they are not releasing any information on whether Anthony will change her name or appearance to avoid public humiliation. Police say they have no plans to provide special arrangements for the woman.
