Prosecutor in Casey Anthony Trial Runs for Office

Sunday, 01 Jan 2012 11:51 AM

ORLANDO, Fla. — A prosecutor in the Casey Anthony murder trial says he is running for the state attorney's office in central Florida.

In a video posted Sunday on the Orlando Sentinel's website, Jeff Ashton said he would challenge his former boss, Lawson Lamar, to be the Orange-Osceola state attorney.

Ashton worked for the state attorney's office for 30 years. He retired as planned days after Anthony was found not guilty in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Ashton says he would offer voters the choice between a prosecutor and a politician. He says he hopes the election won't focus on the Anthony trial.
