Petri Hawkins-Byrd Biography
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 for this. Once when Judith Sheindlin 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 position.
No doubt, with the endeavors he has undertaken, Petri has garnered an enormous net worth. Alone in a year, he takes away $1 million as a salary. Besides, Petri enjoys a massive net worth of $3.5 million.
