Look who’s coming back to town.

On Friday, Casey Anthony was ordered back to Orlando by a Florida judge to serve probation in her check fraud case.

Judge Belvin Perry ruled that Anthony must return within two weeks – by Aug. 26 – to serve one year of probation, but her address may remain confidential.

Her lawyers previously argued that it is too dangerous for her to return to the area.

Anthony, 25, was released from jail on July 17 after being acquitted of murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

“Any requirement that she return to Orange County [would] put her in great peril, as well as impose a significant cost to taxpayers in securing her safety,” said papers filed by her lawyer Cheney Mason.

A birthday memorial was held on what would have been the little girl’s sixth birthday Wednesday. Casey’s parents, George and Cindy Anthony, attended while Casey remained in hiding.

Last year, Casey admitted to fraudulently using a checks to buy more than $400 worth of clothes and groceries in the month after Caylee disappeared.
