Summary: The attorney that defended Casey Anthony now finds himself in trouble with the law again after being caught planning to smuggle nearly two tons of cocaine into the country.

Macaluso was one of Anthony’s attorneys during the trial that let her walk free five years ago after being accused of killing her daughter in 2008. Anthony’s daughter Caylee mysteriously disappeared and was later found dead near their home. Macaluso flew Anthony out of Orlando after her acquittal in his personal plane.

He was arraigned in federal court in Brooklyn this month after being caught in Haiti in the drug smuggling scheme. Investigators picked up on the scheme when looking into drug traffickers trying to use a U.S. registered plane. An accomplice admitted that Macaluso planned to fly a Falcon 10 aircraft.

The co-defendants, Carlos Almonte Vasquez and Humberto Osuna Contreras, told authorities that they met Macaluso in Port au-Prince earlier this month to finalize the plan. They men were held without bail once it was determined that they were flight risks.
