Judge Belvin ruled Thursday that Casey Anthony must pay nearly $100,000 for costs of investigating her daughter's death.
Judge Perry's ruling was well short of the more than $500,000 that prosecutors and law enforcement agencies in Orlando were seeking.
Anthony was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her daughter, Caylee. But the 25-year-old was convicted of four counts of lying to authorities. She told officers a baby sitter had the child. Authorities later learned the baby sitter never existed, but the investigation drained manpower.
Anthony has appealed her convictions.
