ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A sheriff in Florida says Casey Anthony's mother could face perjury charges for her testimony during her daughter's murder trial.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Tuesday there have been discussions with prosecutors about filing perjury charges against Cindy Anthony and a decision could come soon.
The sheriff spoke to reporters along with other officials who investigated the disappearance and death of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony in 2008.
A jury last week found 25-year-old Casey Anthony not guilty of murder in her daughter's death. She was found guilty on four charges of lying to law enforcement officers and is to be released from the Orange County Jail on Sunday
