ORLANDO, Fla. - Casey Anthony won't have to return to Orlando today to start serving probation on check-fraud charges. An assistant in Judge Belvin Perry's office said yesterday that a hearing on the issue has been set for tomorrow. The assistant spoke on the condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to discuss the case. Anthony has been out of public view since she was acquitted by a jury in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. She was convicted of lying to detectives but was released from jail because of time served.

The Philadelphia Department of Human Services is on probation - again. Officially the state Department of Public Welfare has given the department's Children and Youth Division a six-month provisional license. It's more like being put on probation, which means you're guilty but deserve a chance to do better. This is the seventh time in eight years DHS has been unable to earn the year-long licensing designation assigned to agencies that meet minimum state regulations. Twenty-three children under DHS supervision have died of neglect and abuse since January 1987, and a commissioner - who should have left years ago - stayed so long that even after her departure, her legacy of ineffectiveness lives on. Life is tough in inner cities.

A county judge has dismissed a case against a Coatesville man who refused, on constitutional grounds, to pay probation fees. Ronald Suber, 33, was sentenced to two years' probation in 1991 in a case stemming from a 1985 fight in a bar. Later that year, the state initiated a $25-a-month fee to recover the costs of supervising people on probation. Suber refused to pay, saying the fee was initiated after he was sentenced. The amount of his fees began to accrue. Under the law, probation cannot end until the fees are paid, so Suber's probation was extended until he agreed to pay up. His attorney, Samuel C. Stretton, argued in court last January that the Constitution guards against a new sentence being imposed after someone has already been punished.

On June 13, John J. Donahue was placed on five years' probation for killing a 78-year-old priest with his souped-up car. He was warned not to drive until his probation was over. But a week later, Donahue was back behind the wheel of the same car that had killed the Rev. Stanislaus Kowal on Dec. 18, 1990. This time his auto collided with a van in Bensalem, Assistant District Attorney Joseph Casey said yesterday. The van driver was not hurt, but a female passenger in Donahue's car complained of neck injuries.

Former Philadelphia restaurateur Michel Pages yesterday was fined $12,500 and placed on three years probation by U.S. District Judge Robert F. Kelly for trafficking in cocaine. Pages' first year of probation is to be spent under house arrest, with permission to work and to attend church, the judge said. Sentencing guidelines called for a minimum 70-month prison term but prosecutors recommended leniency because Pages became a government informant. The precise nature of information Pages supplied was not disclosed.

David Rubin , a Beverly Hills banker who donated generously to some of the more expensive Clinton - and Rendell -era political campaigns, and whose municipal clients included some of America's brokest cities (Detroit, Birmingham, Philadelphia), was finally sentenced March 12 for his confessed criminal role in what the New York Times called a "vast bid-rigging scheme" to rip off New York state taxpayers. Rubin's company, CDR Financial Products , was also a promoter of interest-rate swaps, in which hundreds of local governments bet against Wall Street banks on the future direction of interest rates and, as most of us would expect, lost millions for taxpayers.

HARRY GAINES, the West Philadelphia man arrested last January for slashing the tires of 56 parked cars in the neighborhood, was sentenced to 11 1/2 to 23 months in jail yesterday. The sentence, handed down by Common Pleas Judge Rayford Means, will allow Gaines to be released during the day to work and return to jail at night. Work release, the judge said, will give Gaines, 28, the ability to find a job to pay restitution - estimated at $5,000 - to his victims. Means also sentenced Gaines to serve 30 years of probation and ordered him to cooperate with the District Attorney's Office in the prosecution of his codefendant and stepsister, Aleze Lewis, 37. Her trial is scheduled for March.

AUG. 25, 2012, WOULD have been a routine Saturday for Alison Walsh, a neurologist, if it hadn't been for the five men who jumped her at 11th and Lombard streets. Walsh, 31, was walking to her car at 6 a.m., headed to Mercy Hospital when Markeese Bullock approached. "He smiled at me and said, 'Good morning,' then grabbed me and Tased me," Walsh said yesterday. "Get down, bitch!" she recalled Bullock barking before he yelled to his accomplices, "Get her. " They did: punching, kicking and shooting her repeatedly with a stun gun. Bullock, 20, dragged Walsh by her handbag across the sidewalk - bruising her back - before she let go. The five thieves then took off, leaving her bloodied, bruised and with a broken nose.
