Anthony receives maximum sentence for her charges

Casey Anthony received her sentence this morning in court. After being acquitted of nearly every charge earlier this week she was left with four counts of lying to authorities. Those charges left her with one year in jail for every count, but due to the times she’s already served Anthony will be released next Wednesday. Earlier today, Samanta Taub spoke with CBS Correspondent Peter King who was in Orlando during the sentencing this morning. King described the overall emotions coming from the public, and what’s next for Casey Anthony.
