Casey Anthony has $10K coming to her if she refuses not to speak or tell her side of the story. The 10k is being offered by James M. Schober, who promises to pay the her if she keeps quiet.
Schober says the wants to “prevent Ms. Anthony or others from publishing or profiting from her story in the future.”
The trustee handling her bankruptcy case has been tasked with identifying anything of value that can be used to pay back the $800k Anthony owes her creditors.
Anthony surfaced for the first time earlier this month since she was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter and told a bankruptcy court at the time that she’s living off “unsolicited donations.”
Anthony admitted she doesn’t have a job or a car and lives with friends.
“I don’t pay rent. I don’t pay utilities. I guess you could say I’m living free off the kindness” of others, Anthony, 26, said during the 50-minute hearing in Tampa, Fla.
“When I need to go somewhere, I take the bus,” she said. Her friends also buy her food, she added. “I try to contribute when I can.”
Anthony had not been seen in public since July 2011 when she was acquitted in daughter Caylee’s death.
In her filing, she claimed about $1,000 in assets — and $792,000 in liabilities, mainly debts to lawyers.
In court, she testified that all donations to her in gift cards and cash were sent to her attorneys, who then passed them along to her.
To pay some of her legal expenses, Anthony said she gave several photos of herself to her defense attorney, who sold them to the ABC television network in 2008 for $200,000.
Only one creditor showed up at the hearing: R. Scott Shuker, who is a lawyer for Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, the woman who said her reputation was damaged when Anthony told detectives that a baby sitter by the same name had kidnapped Caylee.
Shuker grilled Anthony repeatedly on whether she had been approached to tell her story for a movie, book or TV deal. Anthony insisted that she had not spoken to any agent or media organization.
Shuker believes that Anthony may be lying afterward he questioned whether she was telling the truth.
