Cristina Perez (judge)

Topics: Colombian-Americans

Cristina Perez is an American judge who had a television show in Telemundo USA. She was born in New York City, received her BA at UCLA and her JD at Whittier Law School. Her show, "Corte de Familia" ("Family Court"), was on Telemundo.

She currently hosts the daytime syndicated English-language court show, "Cristina's Court", which is filmed at KRIV, the FOX owned-and-operated station in Houston. This makes Perez one of three Latina judges presiding over an English-language American TV judge show, along with Judge Maria Lopez and ''The People's Court'''s Judge Marilyn Milian.

Perez is the first Hispanic judge to cross over from Spanish-language to English-language television. She revealed that her ancestry is Colombian, rather than Mexican or Cuban, as had been thought by some of her viewers, in a 2004 magazine interview.

In September 2006 Perez's book "Living by Los Dichos: Advice from a Mother to a Daughter" was published.

Perez participates in a weekly radio segment called "Sex In the News" on the Playboy Radio Network, which is broadcast on Sirius satellite radio.
