Casey Anthony will be released from jail next Wednesday.

Casey Anthony will remain in jail for a few more days.

Judge Belvin Perry was firm in his sentence: The maximum on each of the four counts of lying to investigators.

Perry said each of those lies led investigators on an expensive and unnecessary search for the daughter she claimed during the trial drowned in the pool.

Judge Perry says the four years would run consecutively, but Anthony will get credit for time served.

A court official later announced that a release has been set for next Wednesday, July 13.

The court also reserved jurisdiction to determine the cost of the prosecution and investigation and could tax Anthony on that.

It may never be enough for crowds outside the courthouse, many strongly against Anthony's murder acquittal.

When Anthony is released it's unclear where she'll go.

An attorney for her parents said it's unlikely she'll go home.
