Casey Anthony's attorney's interesting release-date preference

Casey Anthony, acquitted of killing her daughter Caylee, will be released from jail on July 17 instead of July 13, according to court officials.

Anthony, 25, was ordered today to remain in jail after Judge Belvin Perry sentenced her to four years in jail and a fine of $4,000 on her conviction of lying to law enforcement officials.

The judge gave her four consecutive jail sentences, but she has already served nearly three years and would get credit for time served as well as good behavior. Perry originally estimated Anthony could be freed in late July or early August, but Anthony's attorney Jose Baez told ABC News that she would be released July 13.

But according to an updated statement from the Orange County Corrections Department, Anthony's projected release date was adjusted to July 17.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the 13th, a Wednesday, coincides with a full Moon.
