Lillo Brancato Jr., an actor who appeared in The Sopranos and starred in A Bronx Tale alongside Robert De Niro has been convicted of attempted burglary in a case that had him on the line for murder, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors were trying to show that the actor was at fault during a botched attempt to steal prescription drugs in 2005, when he was with Steven Armento, who shot at and killed off-duty cop Daniel Enchautegui after he caught them trying to break into an apartment. Both men were shot as well.
