A recent court hearing in Miami-Dade, Florida, became an emotional scene after the judge realized that the defendant was an old school friend. What began as normal bond hearing for Judge Mindy Glazer soon became a tearful reunion after she asked Arthur Booth the simple question “Did you go to Nautilus Middle School?”
Booth, who was facing a number of charges after failing to stop for a police officer, instantly broke down in tears as he realized who Judge Glazer was. The emotional reunion, which you can see in the video below, was accompanied by some encouraging words from Judge Glazer:
“I’m sorry to see you there, I always wondered what happened to you sir. This was the nicest kid in middle school, he was the best kid in middle school. I used to play football with him, all the kids, and look what has happened … I am so sorry to see you there. Mr. Booth, I hope you are able to change your ways, good luck to you. What’s sad is how old we’ve become. Good luck to you sir, I hope you are able to come out of this ok and just lead a lawful life.”
We too hope that Arthur is able to turn his life around.
