    "Ashton was part of the prosecution team his former boss Lawson Lamar appointed to handle the Anthony case last year. The young mother was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in a case that drew national attention. Even Casey's father, George Anthony, stopped by to congratulate Ashton on Tuesday.

    "I'm thrilled that they're going to give me a chance to do all of the things I said I was going to do," said Ashton.

    Ashton, 54, has described his team's loss in the Anthony trial as Lamar's failure, one in a string of prosecutorial flops that have contributed to the office's 50 percent conviction rate."
