The judge who presided over the Casey Anthony c̶i̶r̶c̶u̶s̶ trial has been hired by Cox owned WFTV.
The station announced that Belvin Perry is going to be their new legal analyst. Viewers could see him as soon as Thursday on WFTV's newscasts.
Perry will be paired with legal analyst Bill Sheaffer to discuss court issues. Perry may weigh in on other issues as well.
"Belvin has a broad range of expertise," WFTV news director Matt Parcell said. "He can speak on social issues. He has a big-picture view."
Parcell said WFTV will feature Perry on newscasts, "Central Florida Spotlight" and 9 Family Connection specials. Parcell sounded as if he'd use Perry frequently.
"I am deeply honored and humbled to be affiliated with Channel 9, Central Florida's leading news team," Perry said in a statement. "Additionally, I am happy to work with Bill Sheaffer providing viewers legal analysis and commentary."
