According to ABC Action News, a juror from the high-profile Casey Anthony case has hired a PR firm to represent them to the media.

Paid Interviews Only

French/West/Vaughan is representing juror number 6, a married father of two who is seeking paid-only opportunities to share his story. According to French, juror number 6 will not accept any opportunities not involving compensation. The New York Times also reports that the juror is requiring a “mid-five figures fee” which means somewhere around $50,000.

According to O’Dwyer’s PR firm database, French/West/Vaughan has ranked as the Southeast’s largest independent PR firm for the better part of the last decade. They work with more than 50 of the world’s leading companies and brands within their focus areas.
