Casey Anthony’s lawyer says there’s no truth to a report that the young woman has scored a lucrative book deal that will bring her a six-figure cash advance.

The Los Angeles Examiner, citing anonymous sources, said Anthony, 25, will pen a tell-all memoir with the help of a ghostwriter. The paper did not identify the publisher.

“The book will highlight life growing up in the Anthony family, becoming a teen mom, her relationship with Lee, which sources say was not your average brother, sister relationship. The source said the father of Caylee will finally be named,” the Examiner said.

But Anthony’s lead defense attorney, Jose Baez, told WFTV, Central Florida News 13, that there is no book deal.

There’s been plenty of speculation that Anthony would get a big-bucks media deal after being released from jail July 17 after a Florida jury acquitted her of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.  

But television networks have been reluctant to try to sign her for even an interview, fearing public anger. The trial was followed closely around the country, and Anthony has been the subject of death threats that have sent her into hiding.

The Examiner said Anthony doesn’t have to worry about any boycotts of the company that publishes her book.

"She doesn't care, she has her advance, which is a high six-figure one. All she has to do is work with the ghostwriter, finish the manuscript by the agreed date. She is contracted to do one major interview, to promote the book and that's it. Even if not one book is sold, she has her advance. She will be fine for a long time to come," the paper quoted a source as saying.

Anthony has to return to Orlando by Aug. 26 to begin serving one year of probation for check fraud. One of the terms of her probation is that she must have a job, and the book deal would satisfy that requirement, the Examiner said.

“If she returns, she can show a probation officer, that she has a job, she can show them her contract which states she must complete the manuscript by a certain date. She can't go and work at McDonald’s if she is under contract to write a book,” the source told the Examiner.

The source added, "Anyone that thinks crime doesn't pay is sadly mistaken."
