Florida – The Florida judge who presided over the controversial murder trial of Casey Anthony is again practicing law as an attorney. As reported by Reuters, Belvin Perry Jr., who received praise for his unbiased handling of the televised trial, began a new job as a personal injury lawyer two days after retiring as a judge.
Perry is quoted by Reuters as stating at a news conference held at the Morgan and Morgan law firm in Orlando, “I’ve always wanted to be that giant that looked out for the little guy.”
Perry also stated that becoming a personal injury lawyer was something he wanted to do following graduation from law school; however, he instead went the path of becoming a prosecutor and then judge. During his career, he served 18 years chief judge in Florida’s third largest judicial district.
The former judge referred to his new job as a “golden opportunity,” which will afford him a less restricting work schedule.
