Correction: Anthony Attorney-Cocaine story

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - In a story Nov. 6 about the conviction of Casey Anthony's former lawyer in a drug case, The Associated Press erroneously attributed the information. It came from the office of acting U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Rohde, not Robert Capers, who is the former U.S. attorney.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Former Casey Anthony lawyer is convicted in NY drug case

A disbarred lawyer who once represented Casey Anthony has been convicted of conspiring to fly a plane filled with $13 million worth of cocaine from Ecuador to Honduras.

NEW YORK (AP) - A disbarred lawyer who once represented Casey Anthony has been convicted of conspiring to fly a plane filled with $13 million worth of cocaine from Ecuador to Honduras.

The office of Acting U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Rohde says Todd Macaluso was found guilty last Friday in Brooklyn of international cocaine distribution conspiracy.

He could get 10 years to life in prison when he's sentenced on Feb. 16.

His lawyer, Michael Gold, tells the Daily News that Macaluso "looks forward to being vindicated in future proceedings."

Macaluso was on Anthony's defense team between 2009 and 2010. In 2011, Anthony was acquitted in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in a high-profile Florida case.
