ORLANDO, Fla. (Associated Press) -- The attorney who represented Casey Anthony is the subject of two complaints to the Florida Bar stemming from the case.

Bar officials said Tuesday that the complaints against lawyer Jose Baez have gone to a grievance committee. Bar attorneys previously concluded there was enough evidence of a possible violation to warrant further investigation.

The exact nature of the complaints and who filed them is not made public unless the committee makes a probable cause finding. There are a wide range of possible punishments.

Anthony was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in July. She is now serving probation on an unrelated charge.
