Television personalities have won millions of heart of their audiences. One of those personalities is Petri Hawkins-Byrd, best remembered for his role on the court program Judge Judy, the role was of the bailiff. People have loved the calm role that he delivered and have raised the bar of expectations from his works. Many have excelled in the industry and so has Petri done, he has nailed the works that he could deliver. 

Going back to Petri’s childhood and to the days when he was small and carefree, we have come to know from his biography that his family raised him in Brooklyn. He was sent to Eastern District High School and also got the chance to study at Hostos Community College. Being an educated person and adding some value to the society that he lived in was one of the most important things that Petri wanted to do.

Petri always believed that his education would help him find a good job that would enable him to sustain his livelihood. It started happening, and thus, he managed to start working as a court officer for the Brooklyn circuit. After some years of experience, he had to shift to another division in Manhattan. 

During the initial work experience, he met many people who inspired him to become like them. One of the inspirational figures that Petri met was a judge named Judith Sheindlin. This meeting must have touched him somewhere and then in 1989, Petri obtained a degree in criminal justice from John Jay College. 

Later on, people began to know Petri for Judge Judy. There is a reason to this. Once when Judith Sheindlin was offered her TV series, Byrd took one step further to write a letter to her saying that if she ever needed a bailiff, he was ever ready to fit in the uniform for her. By chance, when Judith made a call to him offering a role, Byrd couldn’t deny the offer and accepted to take the role. 

Petri has already reached an age where he should have already been married and should have started a family of his own. But still today, we can’t confirm who he is dating, or he has no girlfriends at all. We have to, therefore, say that Petri must be single till date. He understands the power of her career and that he hasn’t let anything distract him from focusing on his career.

The absence of any news about his wife and his children makes people speculate that he must be gay. his sexuality is questioned just because he has not made any public appearance with his girlfriend or any other woman at least. With the huge salary, net worth and the genuine personality he has, he shouldn’t have had any problems finding a love for his life.
