ORLANDO, Fla. —

A man was sentenced to 145 days in jail for handing out pamphlets outside the Orange County courthouse during the Casey Anthony trial in 2011.

Chief Judge Belvin Perry designated a special area for public protesting, and he held Mark Schmidter in contempt because Schmidter didn't use the designated area.

In December, an appeals court shot down the designated area but agreed court protesters could not distribute things outside court.

Schmidter's lawyer plans to challenge Thursday's re-sentencing.
