Orlando Criminal Attorney: Casey Anthony Lawyer Resigns

Attorney Todd Macaluso has resigned from the defense team defending Casey Anthony on charges of murder citing issues with the California Bar. According to the Orlando Sentinel, attorney Jose Baez made the announcement Sunday. According to the California State Bar Association, Macaluso is accused of misappropriating approximately $145,000 and misusing almost $61,000 in client money. These allegations are considered actions of “moral turpitude, dishonesty or corruption” as related to several client’s trust accounts.

In connection with this allegation, Macaluso has entered an alternative discipline program in California. Macaluso has denied any intentional Bar violations and is shifting the blame for his Bar troubles to his staff.
