Casey Anthony's lawyer says she would be in danger and need security if she has to return to Florida under a judge's order in a check fraud case. Jose Baez told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday that bringing Anthony back to Florida from an undisclosed location would just add to what he called the "circus-like atmosphere" around her case.

Anthony has disappeared from public view since her acquittal last month on charges of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.

A judge this week ordered Anthony to come back to Orlando to serve probation for check fraud that she plead guilty to in an earlier case. Anthony's lawyers have filed a motion to quash that order, arguing the judge cannot amend his sentence more than 60 days after it was signed in January 2010.
