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 U.S. Attorney Robert L. Capers 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."
