One of Casey Anthony’s former lawyers was convicted of cocaine trafficking in court on Friday.

Todd Macaluso was found guilty of an international cocaine distribution conspiracy after plotting to fly a plane-full of the drugs from Ecuador to Honduras, according to the New York Daily News.

The jury deliberated for just over an hour before announcing the guilty verdict in a Brooklyn federal court.

Prosecutors have said the 55-year-old had planned to fly more than 3,000 pounds of cocaine on his Falcon 10 plane.

Once the drugs reached Honduras he was planning on smuggling them into the United States, prosecutors have said.

The drugs were valued at roughly $13million, and Macaluso would have gotten $185,000 in return after the drop-off was complete, federal agents claim.
