Casey Anthony tells authorities she's unemployed

October 4, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Casey Anthony reported to her probation officer on Monday that she was unemployed and has not had any source of income in the past month.

Her probation order requires her to "work diligently at a lawful occupation."

The 25-year-old was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her daughter Caylee. She is currently serving probation in Florida for unrelated check fraud charges.

Florida Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said being jobless doesn't put Anthony in violation of her probation. Thousands of other probationers are without jobs, given Florida's 10.7 percent unemployment rate.

Anthony also told the probation officer she has not used any illegal drugs, but she has consumed small amounts of alcohol.

On a form, Anthony reported she's not taking any education classes nor enrolled in any mental health programs.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
