Casey Anthony's case is back in court again as she appeals the four convictions that claim she lied to authorities. These claims reach all the way back to 2008, right after her daughter Caylee first disappeared.

According to Reuters, Anthony, 26, was convicted of lying to lead detective Yuri Melich when she claimed she left her then 2-year-old daughter with a nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzales at Orlando's Sawgrass Apartments on June 9, 2008. She also lied by saying she was an employee at Universal Studios, claiming she told her alleged co-workers Caylee was missing and saying she later got a call from her daughter.

The appeal claims that all four lies should just be one offense because they were made during one interrogation with detectives. Anthony was sentenced to four years in prison based on those four counts against her, though she was acquitted of all murder charges. She is scheduled to complete her sentence on Jan. 13, which explains why she was spotted out at dinner last month.

Though Anthony's lawyers will be in court for this hearing, Anthony herself will not be making an appearance.
