Casey Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez, as well as the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Internal Revenue Service, should not receive anything from a settlement in her bankruptcy case, this according to a trustee’s report filed recently in federal court.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
The $25,000 that was raised by the sale of Anthony’s story should go toward the bankruptcy trustees, according to the report.
Anthony filed for bankruptcy protection in early 2013, listing more than $792,000 in debts.
Baez claimed that he was owed $397,431, the largest amount in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.
Other creditors claiming that Anthony owed them money include the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, $145,660; the IRS, $80,855; and Texas EquuSearch, the search-and-recovery group that combed Central Florida for 2-year-old Caylee in 2008.
EquuSearch says it spent $100,000 searching for Anthony’s daughter, even though the mother already knew her daughter was dead.
