On Feb. 4, the Central Receiving Center in Orlando will be renamed the Belvin Perry, Jr. Central Receiving Center in honor of Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. Judge Perry has served as a valuable member of the Morgan & Morgan team for many years.
Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs will be hosting the ceremony. Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. is a 9th Judicial Circuit Court Chief Judge and has served as a trial attorney for decades. He started his legal career as a trial attorney for the Office of the State Attorney in 1977.
Since then, he has risen among the ranks, and eventually served in the prosecutor’s office as Chief Assistant State Attorney. Judge Perry was the first African-American to be elected to the circuit bench of the North Circuit without first being appointed. Judge Perry has also been recognized as one of the 20 most powerful people in Orlando.
The Central Receiving Center has long served as a help center for mental health and substance abuse disorders. The CRC has worked side by side with law enforcement and serves as an important facility for those who are not able to find mental health and substance abuse disorder assistance. The center also provides on-site treatment in accordance with the Orange County Health Services. Any individual who has suffered from mental health and substance abuse, and has been in contact with a member of law enforcement, can find help at the CRC.
We would like to congratulate Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. for his honorable achievement and commend him for his hard work and dedication in serving as a member of the judicial system.
