Casey Anthony may not be applying for paralegal school after all.

Tuesday, many media outlets were wondering if Casey Anthony would be starting a new career as a paralegal after her attorney made a comment to ABC News that she might consider a career in law.

In Session spoke with Charles Greene, Anthony’s attorney, to clarify his statements.

Greene said that based on Casey’s experience, she feels strongly about the criminal justice system and would like a job working with a think tank or something working with the wrongly accused. He also said he was pontificating, but the comment was based on conversations he has had with Anthony.

He says Anthony wants to have a positive influence on the world. “What she would like to do is work for some sort of think tank or other organization that has devoted itself to wrongly accused or those that suffered somehow from criminal or justice process,” said Greene.

On Friday, two of Anthony’s convictions for lying to law enforcement were overturned. That same day, she also filed for bankruptcy. According to her court documents, Anthony is almost $800,000 in debt.
