Caylee's mom posts bail, to be released: The mom of missing Orlando toddler Caylee Anthony posted bond Wednesday afternoon and is expected to be released from jail today.

A member of Leonard Padilla Bounty Hunters' staff will now move into Anthony's home and stay with Casey, who will be fitted with an ankle-monitoring device.

Gym teacher gets jail time for student affair: A ex-gym teacher who slept with a 14-year-old student and sent him erotic cell phone messages was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison, partly because she called the boy after she was charged. The boy's family had been willing to settle for a lighter sentence (without prison time) until they found out Beth Ann Chester, 27, had contacted their son. She was charged with statutory sexual assault, corruption of a minor and criminal use of a cell phone. "I know this is the punishment I deserve," she said. Chester's lawyer says her marriage was troubled when she met the boy, which caused her to develop sexual feelings for him. Chester's divorce is pending.
